The AFC Championship Game will once again be played in Arrowhead Stadium, with the Bengals coming in to play the Chiefs. Kansas City got to the championship game by the thinnest of margins, as did Cincinnati. With Patrick Mahomes and Joe Burrow on opposing sides, we're bound to see some fireworks.

The BetSided team has you covered with a full preview of the game. But for now, let’s dive into the players with the best value to score a touchdown.

Best Anytime TD Scorers for Bengals vs. Chiefs

  • Jerrick McKinnon: -110
  • Tyler Boyd: +240
  • Joe Burrow: +500

Jerrick McKinnon: -110

McKinnon has had at least 15 touches in each of the last two games. He is a clear part of the Chiefs offensive plan. As the new starting back, McKinnon has a lot of opportunities to get into the endzone, mainly through the passing game. 

In two games, McKinnon’s catch percentage is neary 85%. If the Chiefs can get him the ball in space and let him take screens all the way down the field, McKinnon could be the X-factor of the entire game. In the red zone, everyone knows Travis Kelce is going to be the main target. McKinnon is a good choice to take some of the red zone load off of him and touch pay dirt. 

Tyler Boyd: +240

Tyler Boyd, who sometimes can get lost behind Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins, has been a touchdown machine. He’s scored a touchdown in four of the last five games, only missing out last week against the Titans. Boyd is the tertiary option in Cincinnati, but as we saw last week in Kansas City, anyone can go off.

The Chiefs defense was ripped to shreds by explosive plays, which is something the Bengals thrive off of. If Joe Burrow can stay upright, expect Boyd to get in on the action. 

Joe Burrow: +500

As we saw last week, the Bengals’ offensive line is not great. He hasn’t been very mobile in the playoffs, but Burrow showed his willingness to run – especially against the Chiefs. In their Week 17 matchup, Burrow had his third straight game of double digit rushing yards. While Cincinnati will want to keep him upright and handing the ball off to Joe Mixon, the Chiefs’ pass rush will allow for rushing lanes for Burrow to get through.
