NFL Divisional Round: 3 Prop Bets for Saturday, January 21
Ready to make some money on the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs? The action gets underway on Saturday with two games that should be highly entertaining. The Jags head to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs in the early tilt.
The Saturday night affair will be between two familiar NFC East rivals as the Giants head to Philly to take on the Eagles. Can Philadelphia beat New York three times in one season?
We’ve analyzed the board and found 3 prop bets for Saturday, January 21. Good luck with all your wagers!
Christian Kirk Touchdown (+185 FanDuel)
This price seems like it is such a gift. Kirk scored last week, albeit it was the last touchdown of the game. That said, paydirt is always a good thing!
Kirk also scored twice in the previous meeting against these Chiefs, whose defense is super susceptible to the passing game. Kansas City is near the bottom of the league in allowing passing touchdowns.
The former Texas A&M standout has become Trevor Lawrence’s favorite target this season. We think these two will hook up for a score in this matchup.
Jalen Hurts Touchdown (-103 Caesars)
Hurts has not run for a touchdown in the last 3 games in which he started. Prior to that, he had scored 7 touchdowns in 7 games.
With Sanders scoring twice against the Giants in their 1st meeting, and then Boston Scott scoring the lone one last game, we believe Hurts is going to be able to take a read option to the house here. If not that, a goal-line scenario where they use their ultra-successful sneak play will get us one.
Daniel Jones Interception (+110 DraftKings)
Jones has only thrown 5 interceptions on the season. However, he is facing an Eagles team that is 4th in the league with 17 interceptions. Not only that, the Eagles are 1st in the league in sacking the QB with 69 sacks on the season.
If they are able to get that pressure on Jones in this one and force a couple of errant throws, the Eagles’ secondary should be able to pick him off at least once. This plus money play may be our favorite of the week.
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 these are worth a shot, but play them for much less than your normal wager size.
Isiah Pacheco +850 (BetRivers)
Zay Jones +2000 (BetMGM)
DeVonta Smith +1000 (DraftKings)
Isaiah Hodgins +1900 (DraftKings)
