The NFL betting spectrum has shrunk down to just four games for the upcoming Divisional Round of the playoffs. The field will be cut in half after this week’s action, so get in as much gridiron gambling as possible. Some players rise to the occasion with the national spotlight shining, putting forth gargantuan efforts to dazzle us.
As with all online sports betting, picking player props involves analyzing trends and processing the available data. To identify hot player prop bets, we must be willing to dig deeper, beyond the scope of standard NFL odds. After the digging is done, we have to take action based on what feels right. Trust your gut, my little soldiers of fortune!
My player props picks were on the money for Wild Card weekend, and hope to press that positive momentum forward. I have a few strong angles we can work on, so let’s roll!
Check out some of BetUS Sportsbook’s Super Bowl prop bets ahead of the Big Game and place your bets!
Baltimore’s Blitzkrieg Backfires In Buffalo
The Ravens love to blitz, and that isn’t likely to change against the Bills this Saturday. Baltimore has blitzed a league-high 41% of the time, but now faces a quarterback who is proven against pressure. Buffalo QB Josh Allen shrugged off the pass rush in 2020, throwing an NFL-leading 19 TDs while under duress.
Allen is a bonafide dual-threat, but with Baltimore shutting down Derrick Henry last week, expect an intense aerial-minded assault. Buffalo’s MVP candidate has thrown for at least 320 yards and two touchdowns in three of his four previous four starts. The one game during this stretch that Allen dipped below 320 yards, was in the blowout vs Miami in Week 17.
Here Allen was pulled from the game early, after throwing for 224 yards and three TDs in the first half. Look for player props that predict Allen to go over in both yardage totals and passing TDs. Stay away from rushing player props for Allen this week.
Bills’ slot-receiver Cole Beasley should also benefit from Allen’s projected gunslinging under pressure. Lock in bets that aim high for Beasley’s production, especially catches. Lastly, stay away from Ravens’ QB Lamar Jackson for this divisional matchup.
Jackson is explosive yet unpredictable, a powder keg of inconsistency, who is nervous it might be snowing in Buffalo. The former-MVP has never played in snow before, and the forecast is calling for freezing drizzle and some snow accumulation. This may be enough to knock Jackson off his game, so if you do bet on him target the unders.
Jolly Rodgers Sails to NFC Championship
Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers is most likely the NFL MVP for the 2020 season. Rodgers finished the season with 4,299 passing yards, 48 passing TDs, only five interceptions, and a gleaming 121.5 QB rating. Green Bay is well rested after its bye week, so go all in on Rodgers to have excellent passing numbers vs L.A. this Saturday.
Aaron Donald (ribs) will be playing injured for the Rams, which benefits the Packers’ rushing attack and Rodgers’ pocket passing. Rodgers has an attractive passer rating of 100.0 over 19 career playoff games, piling up 5,027 yards and 40 TDs. Track down player props that focus on Rodgers throwing for at least three touchdowns vs L.A.
A-Rod has thrown for three or more TDs in seven of his last eight starts, so this is legit solid. With a victory vs L.A., Green Bay will host the NFL Championship game for the first time in Rodgers’ career. On a side note, our Super Bowl possible matchups odds show the Packers vs the Chiefs as the most likely. No surprise there, so snatch up that +250 moneyline before it flips over to -250. Rake that cake, people!
