Expect the Unexpected

The oddsmakers have Tom Brady and Josh Allen as the favorites to have the most passing yards this weekend, but both Brady and Allen are going up against top-five defenses in the Washington Football Team and the Indianapolis Colts respectively.

The Chicago Bears could be down a lot to New Orleans and that would force Mitchell Trubisky to throw the ball more. That might result in him having the most passing yards, despite his team losing.

However, I think the best pick is to go with Drew Brees (+700). The Saints have had some terrible luck in the playoffs over the last few years, and with the possibility this is Brees’ last season, I think he is going to leave everything out there on the field Sunday.

Wild Card Weekend Prop: Big Scores

These Games Should Play Close

Getting over 40 points in an NFL game is a hard thing to do, but it becomes especially tough in a playoff game. The Buffalo Bills are averaging 47.3 points over the last three games, but they will also face a much tougher opponent this week in the Indianapolis Colts.

All of the Wild Card Weekend games will feature a good defense, which is expected in a playoff game. So the best bet here would be to take the UNDER 40.5.

Wild Card Weekend Prop: Will Diggs Lead Receivers?

Analyzing The Matchups

To consider which player will have the most receiving yards, you must break down each game individually. Stefon Diggs at +500 has the highest odds because he led the NFL in receiving yards through the season and Josh Allen loves to target him. The Colts will try hard to prevent him from having a good game, and they might even double-cover him, but Diggs always seems to find holes in the opposing defense.

Another good option would be Tyler Lockett at +1200 odds. In the two meetings between the Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams, Jalen Ramsey has done an incredible job shutting down D.K. Metcalf. This means that Russell Wilson will look at Lockett early and often.

Wilson will still try to target Metcalf, but Ramsey is such a good shutdown cornerback that the Seattle QB will have no other choice but to exploit the cornerback who’s covering Lockett.

Wild Card Weekend Prop: Top Rusher

Derrick Henry+125
Nick Chubb+350
Jonathan Taylor+475
J.K. Dobbins+750
Cam Akers+1000
Chris Carson+1000
David Montgomery+1000
Alvin Kamara+1200
Antonio Gibson+1200
James Conner+1400
Lamar Jackson+1400
Ronald Jones+2000
Devin Singletary+2500
Gus Edwards+2500
Kareem Hunt+2500
Leonard Fournette+2500
Zack Moss+2500

King Henry Will Feast

Within the last year, Derrick Henry has lined up against the Baltimore Ravens twice and in both games, he’s run for 133 or more yards. In fact, in last season’s playoff meeting between the teams, he ran for 195 yards and threw a touchdown pass. That’s a big reason he is the +125 favorite in this category.

The Ravens will do everything they can to stop the force that is Henry; the question is whether they can stop him. Every team game-plans to stop Henry, but they still have major problems when the game starts and he’s running downhill with a full head of steam.

Another sneaky option could be Cam Akers at +1000 odds. The Rams aren’t sure who will start at quarterback, but even if Jared Goff does come back from an injured thumb, it would be beneficial to control the time of possession and the best way to do that is on the ground.

Akers emerged as the Rams’ leading back late in the season, although head coach Sean McVay likes to use all three of his trio of running backs. I can see Akers getting anywhere from 20 to 25 rushing attempts and over 100 yards.

Wild Card Weekend Prop: Will Underdogs Advance?

A Wild Weekend?

Over the last three years, at least two wild-card teams have won their first matchup. In fact, in both of the last two years, there were three wild-card winners. Now that there is an added playoff spot in each conference, we are getting two more games, which means the chances of it happening have increased.

All the games should be highly contested, but this year I think there will be three wild-card winners: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens. There is a chance that all the home teams win their games, but I would reckon at least two will lose.
