Chiefs vs. Ravens: The best player prop bets for SNF
The Kansas City Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens will meet for the fourth time in four years this Sunday night, and while the Chiefs have won all three of the prior clashes in the Patrick Mahomes/Lamar Jackson era, the games have still provided some unforgettable moments.
Hopefully, prop bettors will have a memorable Sunday evening too. Here are our top three sides for this contest.

Ty’Son Williams Over/Under 9.5 receiving yards
Ty’Son Williams looks like a slam-dunk to reach double-digit reception yards on Sunday night.
Williams was targeted four times in his professional debut against the Las Vegas Raiders, hauling in three passes for 29 yards. He’ll square off against a Chiefs defense that was the worst in the NFL last year by passing yards allowed to running backs (846).
This unit surrendered 46 yards on five completions to Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt of the Cleveland Browns at home in Week 1. Williams should clear this incredibly-low bar in his second primetime tilt in as many weeks.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire Over/Under 49.5 rushing yards
Clyde Edwards-Helaire made his impression felt when he collided with this Ravens defense on Monday Night Football a year ago, but bettors should not be counting on a repeat performance.
The Baltimore stoppers allowed just 45 total yards to Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake on the ground in their Week 1 victory against the Las Vegas Raiders (16 attempts). Edwards-Helaire does not often get the volume of carries necessary to generate more than 50 yards on the ground, and it seems unlikely that he’ll do so in a game that could turn into a track meet.
He went Under 49.5 rushing yards in seven of his final nine games of the 2020 regular season, and added a similar performance when he amassed just 43 yards on 14 totes in Week 1, so take the Under here.
Mark Andrews Over/Under 54.5 receiving yards
Ravens tight end Mark Andrews was uncharacteristically quiet in his team’s Week 1 defeat, collecting only 20 yards on three catches (five targets). He appears due for a much different type of game against Kansas City’s stoppers in Week 2.
Andrews amassed no fewer than 61 receiving yards in five straight weeks from Nov. 15 to Dec. 27 of 2020. The Chiefs allowed the fifth-most receiving yards to tight ends last season (954), and coughed up 120 yards to Cleveland tight ends in Week 1 (second-worst in football), so don’t be surprised if Andrews eclipses this line.
