Dolphins vs. Chiefs Best Touchdown Scorer Bets: Take Tyreek Hill in His Return to Kansas City?

Will Tyreek Hill score a touchdown in his return to Kansas City? We break it down in our best touchdown scorer bets for Dolphins vs. Chiefs.

The last time the Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs played each other in Germany earlier this season, only a combined four touchdowns were scored. With this Dolphins vs. Chiefs game expected to be played in the freezing cold, should we expect it to be much different this time around? Let’s dive into our favorite touchdown scorer bets.

Dolphins vs. Chiefs Best Touchdown Scorer Bets

Isiah Pacheco (-115 at FanDuel)

Blewis: Isiah Pacheco scored nine touchdowns during the regular season, with more than half of them coming in his previous four games.

Volume is never an issue for Pacheco, as he has recorded at least 20 touches in four of his last five games, and he doesn’t have much competition for goal-line carries. For the season, Pacheco has more rushing attempts inside the 5-yard line than all other Chiefs players combined.

Rashee Rice (+140 at FanDuel)

Soppe: Just because it is a chalk pick doesn’t make it wrong. Last postseason, Patrick Mahomes’ aDOT dropped by 14.6% from his regular-season rate, and if the conservative approach is something that carries over, there is a “Fantasy Football Stat To Know” on Kansas City’s rookie receiver.

Rice is in a good spot in this offense, and the matchup makes him an even better play. Those short passes have increased production potential against the Dolphins (sixth-most missed tackles during the regular season), making their WR1 a strong bet in all prop markets.

As for this specific selection, what if I told you that Miami was bottom five in both red zone scoring defense and red zone completion percentage?

Rice has quietly developed into a consistent target earner, a role that I’ll happily embrace, even in what is looking like an ugly weather game.

Tyreek Hill (+145 at ESPN BET)

Bearman: There might not be a lot of scoring in this game, considering the weather forecast, but if the Dolphins are going to win this game in Kansas City, they’re going to have to get Tyreek Hill involved as much as possible.

After being a scoring machine in the first 12 games of the season with 12 TDs, Hill has only scored once since getting injured against Tennessee.

Tua will be looking for Hill often, and he’s going to have extra motivation to score against his former team, especially after a scoop-six fumble in their first meeting.

Hill has been minus money most of the season, but he’s back to plus money to score a touchdown for this one.

Patrick Mahomes (+325 at ESPN BET)

Rolfe: We have not seen Patrick Mahomes in the end zone this season, which is the first time since his rookie season, when he only played one game. It isn’t that Mahomes has not been running the ball because he set a career-high for attempts this year during the regular season.

It feels like every year we get one memorable Mahomes playoff rushing attempt, and this could well be the game where he does that in the cold in Kansas City.

With the Dolphins struggling in terms of pass rushers, Mahomes could have plenty of lanes open to carry the ball. New players unfamiliar with the schemes can often lead to a lack of lane discipline, which could play into Mahomes’ favor.
