It’s a Super Wild Card Weekend in the NFL with six games across three days. Here are our top three player props from football betting sites for Sunday’s action.
Daniel Jones – Under 287.5 total passing and rushing yards
Daniel Jones has finally led his team to the promised land. Unfortunately for him, the promised land consists of a hostile stadium full of 73,000 grown adults in Vikings cosplay chanting SKOL.
But after three underwhelming seasons, the former sixth-overall pick is in the playoffs.
Jones typically plays better on the road, so the crowd shouldn’t be the determining factor on this bet. We like the under here because he just doesn’t surpass 287.5 total yards that often. In fact, he’s done it just three times all year.
While it’s true that the Vikings have an abysmal defense, things should tighten up in the playoffs. The Giants aren’t an offensive juggernaut to begin with (350 total yards, 18th).
At the end of the day, it’s impossible not to fade something he’s done in just three of 17 games.
Joe Mixon – Under 55.5 rushing yards
This divisional matchup should play out more as a slog-fest than a slugfest. It will be the third meeting between the AFC North rivals this season, and we don’t expect too many surprises.
Joe Mixon was held in check by the Ravens’ dominant run defense (92.1, 3rd) in Week 18, rushing for just 27 yards on 11 carries. The Bengals appear to be committed to a multi-back approach with Samaje Perine, limiting Mixon’s potential further.
Mixon averaged just 3.9 yards per carry this season and has failed to eclipse 27 yards in four of his last six games. The Bengals will win this game, but they’ll win it through the air.
Josh Allen – Over 258.5 passing yards
All Josh Allen did in two games against the Dolphins this season was throw for 704 yards and six touchdowns.
Both the previous contests were close, but this one won’t be. Tua Tagovailoa has been ruled out, so Miami has to roll with Skylar Thompson. I’m sorry, who?
Backup Teddy Bridgewater is also down with a dislocated digit, so the Fins will pin their hopes on a seventh-round third-stringer. It’s an unfortunate way to finish what looked like a promising season for the Dolphins after an 8-3 start.
Miami has a wildly unbalanced defense that is stout against the run (103, 4th) but gets decimated through the air (234.8, 27th). In two games vs. the Dolphins, Allen heaved it up a mind-blowing 103 times.
