Best prop bets for the NFL playoffs Divisional Round
BetAmerica is offering a litany of intriguing prop bets concerning this weekend’s Divisional Round NFL playoff games. From most rushing yards to most team points, we’ve got you covered with our recommended plays.
Favorites for most rushing yards
Most rushing yards
Lamar Jackson (+400) is favored to lead all Divisional Round players in rushing yards following his 136-yard outburst (48 of which were earned on one touchdown scamper) against the Tennessee Titans in the Wild Card round. Betting a quarterback in this market seems inherently unwise, so we’ll look toward a more traditional source for a play here.
Nick Chubb (+500) – who tallied six 100-yard rushing games in the regular season – had another fine outing against the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday, accounting for 76 yards on the ground. Chubb should see plenty of touches against a Kansas City Chiefs defense that was 21st in stopping the run this year.
Favorites for most receiving yards
Most receiving yards
Oddsmakers seem to be spot-on with Stefon Diggs as a +450 favorite in this market.
The Buffalo Bills standout wide receiver has recorded no fewer than 128 yards in each of his last four games, excluding Week 17’s win over the Miami Dolphins in which he was pulled at halftime after gaining 76 yards.
Josh Allen should be able to locate Diggs early and often against the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday night, so bet this tepid favorite with confidence.
Favorites for most team points
Kansas City Chiefs
New Orleans Saints
Green Bay Packers
Most team points
The Kansas City Chiefs (+120) were one of the NFL’s highest-scoring teams in regular season, producing 29.6 points per contest. They’ll square off with a Cleveland Browns unit that surrendered 26.2 points per game, 21st in the NFL. However, there are a couple of reasons why the New Orleans Saints (+450) are a better bet in this market.
The Saints out-scored the Chiefs by a half-point per game in the regular season, yet are available at about three times the price. Drew Brees and company will do battle in the Superdome with a Tampa Bay Buccaneers team that they averaged 36 points against in two regular-season collisions.
