3 NFL Player Prop Bets for Wild Card Saturday
We love the NFL Playoffs because it’s nice not having to wait until Sunday to enjoy some action! The Saturday slate blesses us with 2 games to act as an appetizer. If you need help betting Seattle at San Fran or Los Angeles at Jacksonville, you’ve come to the right place.
Here are 3 NFL Player Prop Bets for Wild Card Saturday! We feel really good about these plays and expect a 2-1 or better performance. Best of luck with your plays!
Christian McCaffery Touchdown (-130 BetMGM)
McCaffery has scored in 6 straight games. He has scored 9 times in 11 total games with the Niners and he will be leaned on once again here in the playoffs. Purdy has been steady but McCaffery will be the main redzone target both on the ground and in the passing game. The juice is well worth forking over here for this play.
Austin Ekeler OVER 89.5 Rush+Rec Yards (-114 FanDuel)
After a slow start, Ekeler finally regained his spot atop the league in total yardage. He finished the year averaging 53.8 yards on the ground per game and 42.4 yards per game receiving. We expect him to be used early and often in this matchup. If the Chargers are fortunate to have the ball on the last drive of the 1st half, we can almost guarantee that he will pick up ¼ of this yardage on that drive.
Trevor Lawrence UNDER 248.5 Passing Yards (-114 BetRivers)
Lawrence has been held under this number in 3 straight games with his highest total being just 229 during that span. He is averaging under this number on the season (241.9). Travis Etienne has been playing good ball recently and he will likely run the rock a good chunk here, keeping Lawrence’s passing attempts a bit lower than average.
BONUS 1st Touchdown Darts
We love playing the odds on the 1st touchdown of the game when it is a 2 game slate. Here are the players that we believe provide the most value on the 1st touchdown prop for Saturday. We think each of these is worth 20% of your normal wagering size, so don’t go too crazy.
Deebo Samuel +850 (DraftKings)
DK Metcalf +2000 (DraftKings)
Travis Etienne +700 (BetMGM)
Keenan Allen +1000 (BetMGM)
