Chiefs at Vikings Anytime Touchdown Scorer Strategy
The Vikings are home underdogs and the game carries a -point over/under. Implied team totals make the expected final score: Chiefs 29, Vikings 24. That means we should expect four touchdowns from the Chiefs and three from the Vikings.
Each of these teams has a high-volume receiving target sucking up a large amount of the touchdown equity. Travis Kelce and Justin Jefferson are very strong favorites to find the end zone. However, each presents more chalk than I’m willing to swallow. So, I looked elsewhere.
Chiefs Vikings ATTD Scorer Bets
Chiefs WR Rashee Rice ()
Rice unfortunately lost some snap share last week. However, he remains the second choice regarding volume in the red zone. Against the Jets in Week 4, Rice garnered three of the team’s five red-zone targets. He hauled one of those in while Skyy Moore continues to struggle with a 40% catch rate there.
I still like Rice’s chances relative to the market, so I’ll remain bullish on the touchdown front here until this price comes down a bit.
Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon ()
McKinnon found the end zone twice against the Bears in the Week 3 romp but returned to anonymity against the Jets. McKinnon’s snap share is pretty poor, which makes this one a bit dicey on the surface, but he’s a trusted red-zone weapon for the Chiefs and plays a more significant role there than in the rest of the field.
However, what I really like about this spot is explicitly the way Minnesota plays defense. All blitzes, all the time, exactly what most predicted from the Brian Flores-led unit. Attacking those blitzes with quick hitters to the RB has been an Andy Reid staple for a generation, and few backs do it better than McKinnon.
Vikings RB Alexander Mattison ()
I am the furthest thing from a believer in Mattison, but it’s hard to ignore his role and price in this spot. Cam Akers hasn’t taken his job just yet, and the Chiefs have been much better defending the pass than the run this season. By EPA/play, they rank just 22nd there.
As the (still) clear lead back, Mattison’s price looks like a potential buy here, especially considering the difficulties Kirk Cousins has had in the red zone thus far. Minnesota may be a little more inclined to pound the rock than usual in this spot.
