NFL Wild Card Sunday Player Prop Bets to Hammer

(Shawn Hubbard/ Baltimore Ravens)

I hope everyone enjoyed Super Wild Card Saturday. I know I certainly did! We’ve got three more games Sunday and I couldn’t be more excited to sit on my couch for another twelve hours straight. To start off Sunday, the red hot Baltimore Ravens are heading south to take on the Tennessee Titans for the third time in twelve months and I’ve got something special on tap for this game.

1.Baltimore Ravens at Tennessee Titans

For my first pick of Sunday’s slate, I will be rolling with the reigning NFL MVP in Lamar Jackson to throw for over 1.5 TD (+110). I got burned by Josh Allen and the Bills on Saturday, but I’m dipping my toe in yet another touchdown passes prop. Jackson and the Ravens have been scorching hot as of late as they’ve won five in a row! Now, the Ravens have played four teams with sub .500 records in that span; however, the offense certainly looks like they’ve got their mojo back as they are averaging 37.2 points per game during that stretch. And while the Ravens have been running wild over teams, Lamar Jackson has actually been slinging the ball quite well. Since Week 13, Jackson has thrown at least two touchdown passes in four out of five games. I absolutely love Jackson to continue this trend Sunday against a Titans defense who gave up 36 passing touchdowns this season, the second-most in the league.

Now, I mentioned that I had a little something special for this game. It would be remiss of me not to hand out multiple props for this game as there are just so many gorgeous plays to make. So for my second pick of the day, I will be taking J.K. Dobbins to rush for over 61.5 yards (-150). Dobbins has rushed for at least 62 yards in four out of his last five games including a monster 160-yard performance last Sunday against the Bengals. Look for Dobbins to get a heavy workload tomorrow against a Titans defense who gives up 120.8 rushing yards per game, the second-most of any team in the playoffs.

Finally, for those of you who like to throw a same game parlay together, I am giving you Marquise Brown to score a TD (+145) as Jackson has connected with Brown for a touchdown in four out of their last five games. Jackson and Brown seem like they’re finally building the type of connection the Ravens front office envisioned when they drafted Hollywood out of Oklahoma. So there it is, three picks from one game. Fingers crossed that this doesn’t come back to bite me in the ass!

2.Chicago Bears at New Orleans Saints

Unfortunately, for the Bears/Saints game, I will only be making one pick. I will be taking former Raider, Jared Cook, to haul in over 29.5 receiving yards (-112). I’ve always had a special place in my heart for Cook being that he walked so Darren Waller could run. So Sunday, I will be hammering this total as the 33-year old tight end lines up against a Bears defense that will be without star linebacker, Roquan Smith. Now, Cook does only average four targets a game in the high powered Saints offense. However, in the Saints Week 8 win in Chicago, Cook tied his season-high in targets with seven! Cook hauled in five catches for 51 yards that day and I suspect he’ll have a decent day again tomorrow.

As the Bears try and prevent Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas from beating them, Cook will be the least of the Bears’ worries and will have all day in the middle of the field. We might have to sweat this one out, but I will absolutely be hammering the over on this one as Cook has had at least 30 receiving yards in 46-percent of his games this season.

3.Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers

For my final pick of SUPER WILD CARD WEEKEND, I will be rolling with the one, the only, Nick Chubb to score a TD (-112). When it comes to running backs, a lot of the hype lately has been around guys like Derrick Henry, Johnathan Taylor, and J.K. Dobbins. Don’t get me wrong, all three of those guys are top tier running backs. But, it feels like Nick Chubb doesn’t get the praise that he deserves because we are in a golden age of running backs. I’m guilty of it myself! I’ve been all aboard the J.K. Dobbins hype train as of late, but the best running back in the AFC North is without a doubt Nick Chubb.

Chubb has found the end zone in nine of his twelve games this season including a stretch of six straight games leading into the playoffs. Chubb has been on an absolute heater and is one of the main reasons the Cleveland Browns are in the playoffs for the first time in 18 years.

When you look at backs like Henry and Kamara, you’re typically looking at odds of (-200) or worse! Getting Chubb as an anytime touchdown scorer at (-112) is an absolute STEAL! As we saw last week, Chubb has no problem matching up against a Steelers defense who has seemingly gotten softer and softer every week. I will absolutely be hammering Chubb to score a touchdown. Even if he doesn’t score, I’d make the same bet again, and again, and again.

Let’s finish off Wild Card Weekend strong! Tail at your own risk. You can find all these odds at DraftKings Sportsbook. Good luck everybody! Let’s win some money! And, as always, bet responsibly!
