I’ve already made it clear that I’m all in on the Eagles this Sunday in terms of beating the Chiefs, but I’ve got a few NFL props for you as well if that’s your preferred route of betting on the big game.

1. Jalen Hurts o31.5 pass attempts
Hurts has had 24 and 25 pass attempts in his two postseason games thus far, both of which were blowouts. If Kansas City is able to even moderately hang around, Hurts should sail over this number. The Chiefs defense ranked eighth against the run and 18th against the pass during the regular season.
2. Kenneth Gainwell o19.5 rushing yards
While I’m banking on Philly’s passing game, I also think there remains tremendous value on Gainwell. He’s cleared this number with ease in each of his last three games going back to Week 18. Even in a more neutral game script, Gainwell should split time enough with Miles Sanders to get to 20 rushing yards.
3. Marquez Valdes-Scantling u37.5 receiving yards
This number is bloated because of his 100-yard game against the Bengals. Prior to that outburst, Valdes-Scantling hadn’t reached even 30 receiving yards in six straight games. On top of that, he’ll be going against the No. 1 pass defense in the league.
4. A.J. Brown o72.5 receiving yards
I whiffed hard on the Eagles passing game against the 49ers, but that was due to Brock Purdy’s injury more than it was due to the inefficiency of Hurts and Co. The Chiefs allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to wide receivers during the regular season.
5. DeVonta Smith o64.5 receiving yards
I’m banking on splitting these last two at the very least.
6. Isiah Pacheco o15.5 receiving yards
Utilizing Pacheco in the passing game could be Patrick Mahomes' best chance of neutralizing Philadelphia's elite pass rush. Pacheco posted 59 receiving yards against the Bengals.
