Prop Bet Markets To Watch In NFL Wild Card Round
Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers
Geno Smith Over/Under Rushing Yards
The 49ers have one of the league’s best run defenses, which means Seattle will likely have to throw the ball to give its offense any chance. San Francisco gets a lot of pressure from its front four, but Smith tends to take off three or four times per game and rarely averages fewer than five yards per carry.
Brock Purdy Over/Under Completions
Weather conditions are expected to be wet and windy in San Francisco, which could limit how often the 49ers decide to throw the ball. But the Seahawks will have to focus on stopping the run and it could open up the passing game for Purdy.
George Kittle Over/Under Receptions
Ever since Brock Purdy took over at quarterback, Kittle has consistently hauled in more passes and had more targets. The 49ers tight end hasn’t had fewer than four catches since the December 4 game against Miami.
Los Angeles Chargers at Jacksonville Jaguars
Justin Herbert Over/Under Passing Attempts
Herbert has averaged just over 41 passing attempts per game this season, and that number has tended to go up when the Chargers face better teams. A lot could depend on which receivers he has available, but the Jaguars have been much stronger against the run than the pass.
Trevor Lawrence Over/Under Rushing Yards
It can sometimes be feast or famine for Lawrence when it comes to running the football. He’s averaged just over 17 rushing yards per game, but usually doesn’t tuck it and run more than three or four times per game.
Austin Ekeler to Score a Touchdown
The Chargers running back has scored a touchdown in 11 of 17 games this season. Most of those have come on the ground, but he does have five touchdown receptions this year and figures to be a big part of the Chargers offense in this game.
Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills
Josh Allen Over/Under Rushing Yards
Allen is one of the league’s more active quarterbacks when it comes to taking off and running with the ball, and he’s been particularly successful at it against Miami. He’s averaging 47.6 rushing yards per game this season, and ran for 77 yards against the Dolphins the last time these two teams played.
Stefon Diggs to Score a Touchdown
Diggs has 11 touchdown receptions on the season, but none in two games against the Dolphins. His chances of scoring tend to go up when he’s targeted eight times or more in a game. In this season’s previous two games against Miami, he was thrown at a total of 20 times.
Skylar Thompson Over/Under Passing Yards
The rookie quarterback has only thrown for more than 160 yards once this season, in a blowout loss to the New York Jets. But against good passing teams, the Bills have struggled recently, giving up an average of 214.6 yards per game through the air.
New York Giants at Minnesota Vikings
Kirk Cousins Over/Under Passing Attempts
Cousins hit a career high with 643 passing attempts this season. He threw the ball more than almost any other quarterback in the NFL, and especially in big games the Vikings have depended on him to air it out and make plays down the stretch.
Richie James Over/Under Receptions
James had eight catches for 90 yards the last time these two teams played, and his overall receptions per game have ticked up considerably in the second half of the season.
Justin Jefferson to Score a Touchdown
The Vikings receiver has been kept out of the end zone the last two games, but had 12 catches for 133 yards and a score the last time the Vikings played the Giants. He’s likely to be one of Cousins’ main targets in this one.
Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals
Joe Burrow Over/Under Passing Yards
The Bengals will be looking to Burrow to generate a lot of offense on Sunday. He threw for 215 yards on 42 attempts last week against a Ravens team that was resting many of its starters.
Ja’Marr Chase to Score a Touchdown
The Bengals receiver had one score against the Ravens last week, and had touchdowns in seven games throughout the regular season – including three of the last four games.
J.K. Dobbins to Rush For Over/Under Yards
Dobbins had only eight carries for 44 yards in his only game against the Bengals this year, but he went over 90 yards in three of the last four games he played in. The Cincinnati defense has given up an average of 106.6 rushing yards per game this season.
Dallas Cowboys at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tom Brady Over/Under Completions
Brady had 29 or more completions in six of his last seven games. Especially if he has to get rid of the ball quickly for short completions to avoid the Dallas pass rush, it could mean more overall pass attempts from an offense that’s among the best in the league in completion percentage.
CeeDee Lamb Over/Under Receiving Yards
Lamb was relatively quiet in the Cowboys’ Week 1 loss to the Bucs, but he’s become a much bigger part of the offense as the season has gone on. He had over 100 receiving yards in three of the last four games of the regular season.
Ezekiel Elliott to Score a Touchdown
Elliott has scored in all but five of the Cowboys’ games this season, and one of those was the final regular season game, in which he only had eight carries. Prior to that, he’d scored at least once in nine straight games for Dallas.
