- BetOnline and Bovada offer tons of game and player props for NFL Championship Sunday
- Joe Burrow (+140) is favored to throw for the most passing yards this weekend
- Jalen Hurts (+2200) and A.J. Brown (+550) are strong bets to lead the NFL in rushing and receiving yards, respectively
No pretenders, flukes or frauds are playing in the conference title games this weekend. The 49ers, Bengals, Chiefs and Eagles are all legitimate Super Bowl contenders that are just two wins away from hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.
Most Passing Yards
Burrow, Hurts or Mahomes?
Joe Burrow (+130) is favored to lead the NFL in passing yards on Sunday. While he threw for 775 fewer yards than Patrick Mahomes (+280) this season (in one fewer game), the Chiefs superstar has a high-ankle sprain. Neither quarterback lit it up in the Divisional Round with Mahomes passing for 195 yards and Burrow going for 242. But, the Bengals are road favorites in Arrowhead and KC’s pass defense ranks middle of the pack.
Jalen Hurts (+260) only passed for 154 yards in last Saturday’s 38-7 obliteration of the Giants. However, San Francisco has the best run defense in the league, holding opponents to 77.7 rushing yards per contest. Hurts may be forced to air it out against a beatable Niners secondary. His opponent Brock Purdy (+700) likely won’t fair as well. The Eagles defense ranks No. 1 against the pass, allowing just 179.8 yards per game.

Most Rushing Yards
Tough Run D’s on Tap
Moving the ball on the ground won’t be easy this weekend. The 49ers, Bengals and Chiefs all have top-ten units against the run. Philly’s 17th-ranked run defense is the softest target on the board for Christian McCaffrey (+300). Both Joe Mixon (+425) and Isiah Pacheco (+475) ran hot in the Divisional Round with 105 and 95 rushing yards, respectively. With Mahomes banged up, the latter will be relied upon heavily. And the former will get the rock if Cincy builds up an early lead.
Miles Sanders (+350) is a stay-away against Demeco Ryan’s run-suffocating defense. At +2200, Jalen Hurts is a much better value. San Francisco only faced two mobile QBs all year. And one of them was Justin Fields in Week 1 before he was given the greenlight to run. The other was Marcus Mariota, who piled up 50 yards and a TD in a Week 6 upset over SF.

Most Receiving Yards
Chase or AJB?
Ja’Marr Chase (+450) has averaged more than 11 targets per game since returning from a hip injury in Week 12. He’s in elite company with Randy Moss as the only NFL players in history with at least 3,000 receiving yards and 25 TDs in their first two campaigns. The Bengals stud has already surpassed the Hall of Famer with 513 receiving yards over his first two postseasons.
A.J. Brown (+550) was held to just 22 yards in the Divisional Round. Yet, he torched the 49ers for 145 yards and a score while with Tennessee in December 2021.
Appears AJ Brown was in fact tilted about lack of targets against Giants.

Travis Kelce (+700) is averaging 108 receiving yards in his last seven postseason games. While Cincinnati allowed the 10th-most passing yards per week in 2022, they limited Stefon Diggs to just 35 yards last week. Meanwhile, Deebo Samuel (+800), Brandon Aiyuk (+1400) and George Kittle (+1800) should all be avoided against Philly’s secondary.
