Player Props For Samaje Perine Vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Total Rushing Yards

  • Over 17.5 -121
  • Under 17.5 -108

It is hard to see why Perine’s rushing yard total on online gambling sites is set so low especially considering he has gone over that number 9 times this season and is coming off of a 33-yard game in the Divisional Round. Over his last ten games, he’s been torching with 34.8 yards per outing and has gone over his set rushing yard total in seven of those games.

At 17.5 yards, he could hit that in just a few carries with seven runs of 9+ yards this season. It also helps that the Bengals rushing attack as a whole is averaging 4 yards per carry this season and are coming off of a 5.1 yards per carry outing.

With Perine getting 5+ carries in four of his last five games, it gives him more than enough opportunities to hit the over.

Total Receiving Yards

  • Over 16.5 -114
  • Under 16.5 -114

An area that Perine has thriven in this season has been on the receiving end of things with 287 yards through the air this season and one of Joe Burrow’s favorite dump-off targets. Again, it is difficult to see why his receiving total on NFL gambling sites is under 20 yards as he’s gone over 20+ yards six times this season and over a 16.5 total seven times.

In the Divisional Round against one of the leagues toughest defenses, he went for 31 receiving yards.

Total Receptions

  • Over 2.5 +100
  • Under 2.5 -130

His reception total is where things get interesting as he was extremely efficient 5/5 on targets  last week against Buffalo, and has been an efficient pass catcher all season long.

He has gone over 2.5 receptions eight times this season including in five of his last nine games. Especially after such an efficient outing, Perine is sure to get a similar if not bigger workload in the receiving game.

Odds To Score A Touchdown

  • Yes +300

At +300 odds, they are worth some slight action on Perine to find the endzone in the AFC Championship game. He gets a respectable amount of work inside the 20 as well with 15 rushes for two touchdowns and 11 targets for eight receptions and three touchdowns.

The Chiefs also have one of the word red zone defenses in the league this season giving up a touchdown on 67.24% of drives that enter the red zone, 3.2 scoring attempts per game in the red zone, and 2.2 red zone scores per game.
