Player Prop Bets vs Chiefs: Restart the Over Streak

Receiver Dontayvion Wicks is back in the lineup, so of course he’s a prop to watch.

This evening, the primetime slot will have the Kansas City Chiefs coming into Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers. The Packers will have one of their weapons back in the lineup after missing him against the Detroit Lions. A former Packer will also be playing for the Chiefs. These two facts mean a couple of player prop bets over at DraftKings really stick out as viable.

Bet 1: Dontayvion Wicks over 1.5 receptions (-160)

Prior to missing the Thanksgiving game due to a knee issue and concussion suffered against the Chargers, Dontayvion Wicks was on a six-week streak of hitting the over for his receptions. In fact, he hit the over on secondary yardage marks in four of those six weeks. Sadly, the streak ended on Thanksgiving due to the missed time. Streaks are made to be broken; however, now is a great time to start another one!

Don’t expect a ton of yardage from Wicks as the Chiefs’ pass defense has been stifling all season. They have only allowed more than 250 passing yards once, and that was a game where the Minnesota Vikings were trailing and attempting to come back. Wicks’ over / under for yardage is 20.5. The mark isn’t completely improbable for him to clear, but expect to see him get at least two catches.

Bet 2: Marquez Valdes-Scantling anytime TD (+550)

The former Packer, now Chief, Marquez Valdes-Scantling is not having a great season. He’s averaging 1.4 receptions per game and has only one touchdown so far. He caught one ball for a loss last week against the Las Vegas Raiders. The game prior against the Philadelphia Eagles, he was targeted three times and had no receptions. One of those targets was wide open over the top for a deep shot. It would have been the go-ahead touchdown for the Chiefs with 1:42 left in the fourth quarter. Instead, it was 3rd and 10.

With all that said, revenge games are something the Packers are used to seeing. Jimmy Graham has two targets on the year with only one reception. “What is his lone catch?” you may ask. Well, it’s an 8-yard touchdown in the New Orleans Saints game against the Packers.

History may repeat itself and we’ll see a former Packer having a down-year haul in a touchdown for his new team.
