The UF Team review the second of the Conference Championship games, as the Bengals take on the Chiefs in the NFC Championship Game
The last four franchises in the NFL playoffs go head to head in the Conference Championships, with a place at Super Bowl LVII up for grabs.
The second of the Conference Championship games comes in the AFC, as a rematch between the Bengals and the Chiefs lies in wait on Sunday evening.
The game on paper looks incredibly close, especially if Patrick Mahomes is fit for this game, which is why we’re avoiding an outcome bet in our best selections column.
There are a couple of player prop lines that standout, however, and they both come from the Cincinnati camp.
First up is star receiver Ja’Marr Chase, who will likely see a lot of work come his way once again here for the Bengals.
The second-year wideout has frustrated the Chiefs in his three career starts against them, recording a phenomenal 266 receiving yard game against in Week 17 of the 2021 season, scoring three touchdowns in the process.
He has recorded 23 receptions in three games against Kansas City, and it would not be the biggest of surprises to see Joe Burrow throw plenty of targets his way.
The second selection on the table involves another second-year Bengals stud, in the form of kicker Evan McPherson.

Cincinnati are incredibly strong at driving the football down the field and if Burrow somehow doesn’t find a way of pushing the ball into the endzone, they hold a reliable source of points in McPherson.
The former Florida recruit has scored at least eight points in six of his nine starts for the Bengals, and he has scored 32 points in three career starts against Kansas City.
The Chiefs are a tough nut to crack when they’re at their best, so McPherson’s over line in the points catergory looks fairly achievable.

- Evan McPherson Over 7.5 Kicking Points (+106, Caesars)
