Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson Headline Best Bets
After dominating regular-season player props with a 63% win rate, Jim Cramer and Bill Enright reveal their best player props for the NFL Divisional Playoffs.
They are first focusing on the players they are banking on to get into the endzone. *NOTE for quarterbacks, it must be a rushing (or receiving score).
Starting with Lamar Jackson at +105, J.K. Dobbins at +120 and a long shot in Patrick Mahomes to rush for a TD at +260. Jackson ran for seven TDs this year and had another long run for a score last week in the Ravens Wild-Card match-up against the Titans. Meanwhile, his teammate J.K. Dobbins scored in seven straight games as he looks to extend that streak to eight against the Bills. As for Patrick Mahomes, again it’s a long shot, but Cramer and Enright like taking a few risks during the playoffs. If Mahomes scores, he covers all our bets for the weekend thanks to his great payout of $260 for every $100 wagered. Enright says Mahomes' rushing ability is one of the most underrated part of his game. That’s why he also likes his rushing total of over 16.5 at -118. Mahomes has gone over that rushing total in four of his last five games.
Surprised we aren't touting the TD player props for studs like Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams? The Packers' star wideout has odds of -148 to score a TD. Just not enough reward for that risk, especially when considering he's going up against a top three cornerback in Jalen Ramsey. As for Hill, his odds or even worse at -200. Meaning you have to bet $200 to win back $100. Again, just not worth the risk.
But there is a player on the Packers the BMF hosts suggest considering, tight end Robert Tonyan. The Rams have a tremendous secondary but they struggle against tight ends. Tonyan’s catch total is set at 3.5 (+117). This is the BMF best bet of the weekend. A tight end has caught four or more passes against the Rams in seven straight games and that includes guys like Tyler Eifert, Anthony Firkser, Chris Herndon, not exactly the cream of the crop. Aaron Rodgers knows how to exploit weaknesses in defenses and covering tight ends is the Rams Achilles heel.
