Total Receptions - Travis Kelce Odds

  • Over 7.5 +120
  • Under 7.5 -160

That target total looms large in this game. Kelce is the single most reliable weapon that the Chiefs have, and the last time he played Cincinnati, he was targeted less than in any other game.

For context, Kelce only has three games with seven targets and five with eight, and the Bengals held him to six.

Kelce racked up a monstrous 14 receptions on 17 targets against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Divisional Round.

The Chiefs offense will hum if he can get open enough to replicate that performance.
