Super Wildcard weekend is coming up, basically the NFL’s version of a mini-March Madness, and when games get big, bets get big. Here we will be taking a look at some NFL odds and props for this weekend’s upcoming games.
Count on Chase
One prop that really stands out is the Ja’Marr Chase touchdown prop. He is probably the unanimous Rookie of The Year candidate. The young wideout averaged 18 yards per catch and compiled 81 receptions, so he is definitely a big-play threat.
Odds of -105 for a Chase touchdown should be considered if pursuing the Bengals, Raiders matchup.
Sunday Night Showdown
Shifting over to the Sunday night showdown between the Chiefs and Steelers, it seems like this game could get out of hand fast. The line of 46.5 O/U seems reasonable considering this Chiefs offense can put a number like that up themselves.
There is a genuine possibility that the Steelers will play from behind this game, leading to the potential over. That bet seems like a safe play.
Sticking with the Sunday night theme, Tyreek Hill to have 100+ receiving yards & to score 1+ TDs seems like a genuine possibility. At +350 is a tremendous line, considering he has 100+ yard games very often.
However, Hill was injured last week but practiced in full Wednesday. He did, however, miss Thursday’s practice, likely for treatment and rest.
Friday’s practice report will be telling for exactly where our expectations should settle. As long as he practices Friday, Hill should be considered on the optimistic side of questionable.
If you feel super risky, Ben Roethlisberger & Patrick Mahomes to have 300+ passing yards each seems like one that could actually hit, especially if you are all in on this being a shootout. The line currently sits at +950.
That prop definitely deserves a look.
NFC West Battle
Hopping around the league here, there are some excellent props to highlight in the Cardinals at Rams game Monday night. Going a little bit out of the box Van Jefferson anytime touchdown scorer gives you some value.
You can expect the Cardinals to put all their resources towards Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham Jr, so Jefferson should get plenty of looks. In the last matchup with the Cardinals, he ran all over them in the Secondary, hooking up with Mathew Stafford a couple of times deep over the middle.
The line currently sits at +210 and might move, so check it out whenever possible.
Shifting to the Patriots and Bills, New England ran for over 222 yards in their prior matchup with unstable weather conditions in Buffalo. With this game shaping up to be a similar scenario pairing Patriots point spread and Damien Harris anytime touchdown scorer (+120) seems like a good combo.
If you even want to go bigger and throw in Rhamondre Stevenson for an anytime touchdown, that would add a lot to your slip. If they run nearly as much as the last matchup, nothing is really out of the realm of possibility.
Heading over to “Tompa Bay,” the Eagles are going to have their hands full and will need everything out of second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts. Currently, they have him sitting at 202.5 yards. In this situation, the over looks like the right play as Tampa has a stout run defense, so Philadelphia will likely have to attack through the Air.
Another interesting prop to look at is anytime touchdown scorer for Tom Brady. +550 is excellent value, and without stud running back Leonard Fournette, goal-line situations within the 2-yard line will likely fall on the shoulders of Brady and his infamous quarterback sneak.
Although Hurts was highlighted above for passing yards, the interception prop is another one to look at. First playoff game, so the jitters will be flowing especially well playing the greatest quarterback of all time.
The line currently sits at -154 for “yes,” so this is an excellent option if you want to fudge your parlay a bit.
