Make NFL Playoff Picks For Cash Prizes With These Apps
It’s playoff time, ladies and gentlemen. Last week’s wild-card round sure was wild, and now we’re staring down the barrel at the Divisional Round, which contains some great matchups. The times and dates of the divisional round game are as follows:
Saturday, January 21st
4:30 PM EST: Jacksonville Jaguars at Kansas City Chiefs
8:15 PM EST: New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles
Sunday, January 22nd
3:00 PM EST: Cincinnati Bengals at Buffalo Bills
6:30 PM EST: Dallas Cowboys at San Francisco 49ers
I’ve got that Giants/Eagles game circled on my calendar, but the Cowboys/49ers game definitely has the potential to be the game of the week, an exciting precursor which could add to 49ers Super Bowl Wins.
Unfortunately, my Jets did not make the playoffs this year, so I really have no dog in any of these fights. However, I will be rooting for some of my best bets for round two of the playoffs, which can be placed through any of these apps:
So, here are some of my best NFL Playoff player prop bets for this weekend's slate of games!
Best Bet #1: Boston Scott Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+380)
This one has been all over the media recently, but I can’t help but bite at the bait. Check out these numbers:
Boston Scott has scored 16 touchdowns in his career–ten of which have come against the Giants.
Scott has scored in each of his last eight games against the Giants.
Scott ranks fifth all-time in career rushing touchdowns against the Giants with nine, tying him with Hall of Famer Jim Brown.
So, simply put, the man is Giants killer. While every trend eventually ends, this one is just too juicy to pass up. You should also feel confident taking him in any Daily Fantasy Football lineup this weekend, especially if you are playing on Underdog Fantasy. You can check out an Underdog Fantasy promo code here.
Best Bet #2: Joe Burrow OVER 1.5 Passing TDs (-135)
Burrow came out in an interview earlier this week and said he wasn’t “buying” the underdog narrative around the Bengals in this game–and neither am I. I think this game is going to be a lot closer than many are anticipating, and it could very well swing the Bengals' way if their offensive line can give Burrow enough time.
On paper, the Bills' pass rush should demolish this Bengals' O-Line–but we’ve seen the Bills' defense falter once or twice in the past. If The Bengals' offensive line can keep Burrow protected, then it will be a long day for the Bills.
You can trail this pick or ride with me, but at least check out this PrizePicks promo code before you do anything.
Best Bet #3: Patrick Mahomes OVER 0.5 Interceptions (+100)
Throughout the regular season and the wild card round, the Jaguars’ defense has totaled 14 interceptions, which comes out to .78 picks a game. While that’s not the most in the league (the Steelers and Niners own that title with 20) I think the Jags are going to be so hyped up coming off of last week's win, that they’ll catch Mahomes off guard and grab an early interception.
Unfortunately for the Jaguars, I think the excitement will stop there–I got the Chiefs in a bloodbath. You can make your own picks through Fliff, and you can check out this Fliff promo code here.
