KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Travis Kelce player props for Week 1 favor an explosive performance against the Detroit Lions.
Betting odds favor Kelce to go over his legal sports betting projection of 6.5 receptions.

Over 6.5 Receptions -120
Under 6.5 Receptions -110
Kelce reeled in eight receptions in Week 1 last season, marking his first of seven regular season games with over 6.5 receptions. With Kadarius Toney coming off a torn meniscus and uncertainty with other Chiefs receivers, Kelce is the undeniable top target for Patrick Mahomes.

Under 80.5 -115
Kelce went over 80.5 receiving yards in 11 of 20 games last season for the Kansas City Chiefs. The Lions had the 30th ranked passing defense in 2022, making the -115 odds at legal NFL betting sites valuable for Kelce to go over 80.5 receiving yards.

Anytime Touchdown Scorer Odds
Travis Kelce -152
Isiah Pacheco EVEN

Amon-Ra St. Brown +130
Jerick McKinnon +162
Skyy Moore +162
Patrick Mahomes +210
Jahmyr Gibbs +200

Although the betting total is a high 54.5 points, legal online sportsbooks only favor Kelce to score a touchdown in a game that expects at least six touchdowns. That confidence is well-deserved, as Kelce finished last season with four touchdowns in three playoff games.
After Travis Kelce, Jerick McKinnon (9) and Mecole Hardman (4) were the only other Chiefs players to surpass three receiving touchdowns last season. With Patrick Mahomes’ passing touchdown prop set at 2.5 touchdowns, it’s hard to imagine Kelce doesn’t cash his -152 odds on Thursday night.
