NFL Wild Card Weekend Player-Prop Best Bets Today 

Best Browns Player Prop Bet Against Texans

David Njoku

It turns out that veteran quarterback Joe Flacco was all the Cleveland Browns needed to unleash David Njoku as one of the most dangerous tight ends in the NFL. Over the last four games of the regular season, Njoku caught 28 passes for 373 yards and four touchdowns. He had at least eight targets in each game as he proved himself to be an elite offensive weapon in the NFL.

Njoku’s final regular-season game, which included six receptions for 134 yards, came against the New York Jets, who have one of the best pass defenses in the NFL. The Browns, who were missing injured star wideout Amari Cooper in that game, made Njoku the focal point of their offense and absolutely decimated the opposition.

The Houston Texans are up next for Cleveland in the playoffs’ Wild-Card Round, and I expect Njoku to go big again. The Texans have a solid defense, but the unit has given up 975 receiving yards to tight ends this year, which is the fifth-highest total in the NFL. That does not bode well for a defense about to face a quarterback and tight end duo that have been nearly unstoppable over the past month.

These two teams played just three weeks ago on Dec. 24, and Njoku only managed 44 yards in that game. That doesn’t concern me at all, however, because the Browns dominated the game and were up 28-7 in the third quarter. There was no need to rely on Njoku the way the offense did in other games. On Saturday afternoon, Houston will benefit from having star rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud back in the lineup, which should make this a closer game.

The Browns are desperate to get a playoff run going, and Njoku will be one of their key weapons when it comes to moving the ball. His line of 55.5 yards is way too low in my opinion, so I will be backing the big tight end to beat it by a comfortable margin.

The Pick: David Njoku Over 55.5 Receiving Yards (-115)

Best Buccaneers Player Prop Bet Against Eagles

Mike Evans

The dismal Philadelphia Eagles secondary allowed 252.7 passing yards per game to opposing quarterbacks during the regular season. Only the Washington Commanders gave up more. This stat alone shows how poorly Philly’s defense has been playing, and that performance contributed to the team’s almighty collapse over the final six weeks of the regular season.

The New York Giants and Arizona Cardinals were among the most recent teams to pick the Eagles apart, which means Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans and quarterback Baker Mayfield should have no problem combining for big yardage on Monday night.

Nobody knew what to expect from Evans coming into this season. He had reached the 1,000-yard receiving mark with Tom Brady at quarterback in 2022, but it was a very inconsistent year with more downs than ups. It turns out that Mayfield has been the perfect QB for Evans in 2023. In his first year with the Bucs, Mayfield has thrown for more than 4,000 yards, of which 1,255 came on passes to Evans. Mayfield’s willingness to sling the rock has been the perfect match for Evans, who still has good speed and elite hands.

These two have combined for 13 touchdowns this season, and it is a partnership that will be crucial for the Buccaneers if they plan to advance in this year’s playoffs. The Eagles are in shambles at the moment, so Evans should have no problem finding space in the secondary.

Tampa Bay’s secondary is also giving up a lot of yards, which should lead to an exciting back-and-forth game. Mayfield should be dropping back and airing the ball out plenty, which makes Evans’ line of 68.5 yards look very appealing. Bet the over and enjoy some good offensive action.

The Pick: Mike Evans Over 68.5 Receiving Yards (-115)

Best Rams Player Prop Bet Against Lions

Matthew Stafford

NFL fans will be treated to a Wild-Card Round playoff game packed with fascinating storylines on Sunday night. Having earned their first playoff berth since 2016 and now searching for their first playoff win since 1991, the host Lions will have to face Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford, who spent 12 seasons in Detroit from 2009 to 2020.

This matchup pits two powerful offenses against defenses with vulnerabilities. To win this game, the Rams will have to outscore a Lions offense that has posted the NFL’s third-most yards per game this season. Los Angeles will also have to solve a Lions defense that allows the league’s second-fewest rushing yards per game at only 88.8. Over Detroit’s last three games, opponents have only averaged 55.7 rushing yards per game against the Lions.

L.A. running back Kyren Williams is going to have his work cut out for him, but fortunately for the Rams, they have one of the NFL’s most dangerous passing attacks. Stafford has been playing at an elite level, most notably helping star rookie receiver Puka Nacua to a record-breaking 1,486-yard season. Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp has also posted 737 receiving yards of his own in 12 games, often leaving defenses with too much ground to cover.

To make matters better for the Rams, Detroit allows 247.4 passing yards per game, which is the sixth-highest total in the NFL. The Lions’ secondary is very beatable, and given the fact that Detroit’s run defense is elite, I expect the Rams to opt for a very pass-heavy game script on Sunday. As a result, Stafford should have no trouble exceeding his line of 274.5 passing yards.

The Pick: Matthew Stafford over 274.5 Passing Yards (-115)

Best Steelers Player Prop Bet Against Bills

Jaylen Warren

The Pittsburgh Steelers have transformed themselves over the past three weeks with Mason Rudolph at quarterback. After losing three straight games against Arizona, New England, and Indianapolis, Pittsburgh moved Rudolph into the starting role, and he promptly led the team on a three-game winning streak that clinched a playoff spot.

During this run of success, the Steelers have relied heavily on running backs Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren. Both members of this dangerous duo have been very impressive in allowing Pittsburgh to control its past three games.

Of course, Sunday’s playoff opener will not be an easy game for Pittsburgh. The Buffalo Bills, the Steelers’ opponent, are on a hot streak of their own. Buffalo has been showcasing a very dangerous offense that should be able move the ball freely at home against Pittsburgh. The Steelers have done well to make the playoffs this season, but they are about to go up against a team playing at a much higher level, and I expect them to fall behind early.

If this happens, the Steelers will not be able to rely on their running attack to control the game. Instead, they will have to ask Rudolph to drop back and pass the ball more. Because of this, Warren, the team’s preferred pass-catching back, is likely to be on the field for more snaps than Harris. Over his last five games, Warren has averaged 5.2 targets per game. In contrast, Harris didn't receive a single target between Weeks 15 and 17, although he did have five in the season finale at Baltimore.

Harris’ five-target game against the Ravens was a clear outlier, however, while Warren has beaten this week’s line of 19.5 yards in four of his last five games. With the Steelers projected to be playing from behind on Sunday, I think Warren will go past his receiving-yardage total again.

The Pick: Jaylen Warren over 19.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
