NFL Conference Championship Games: Player Props and Touchdown Scorers

Deebo Samuel

Deebo Samuel offensive versatility has been critical to San Francisco's success this season, and not just as a wide receiver

And then there were four as the NFL has hit Championship Sunday.  A lot of people will focus on the spreads and totals for the AFC and NFC Championship Games, but I much prefer looking at the player props and finding some value in specific players and situations.

Both of these matchups on Sunday are rematches from earlier in the season, so we'll take a look at how those contests went and what we can use to assess the current numbers on DraftKings. As always, make sure to shop around if you have access to multiple sportsbooks because they all handle props slightly differently.

AFC Championship Game: Cincinnati Bengals at Kansas City Chiefs (3 p.m. ET on CBS)

Previous Meeting

In Week 17, these two faced off with the Bengals holding serve at home 34-31. Joe Burrow was magical, throwing for 446 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions. He was sacked four times, which is something to watch for considering the beating he took (record-tying nine sacks) against Tennessee last week. Ja'Marr Chase had 11 receptions for 266 yards and three touchdowns in that victory over the Chiefs. The other noteworthy Bengal performance was from Evan McPherson, who connected on two field goals, the game-winner coming from just 20 yards out. Only four teams have made multiple field goals against Kansas City this season.
