2023 Wild Card Weekend Best Bets
C.J. Stroud Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (+124)
Coming off of an electric performance in a do-or-die matchup against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 18, look for Houston Texans quarterback, C.J. Stroud to throw for Over 1.5 passing touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns.
With the Browns sporting one of the most-feared defensive fronts in the NFL, look for the Texans to rely on their passing-attack in order to generate scoring-drives in this playoff tilt. With Stroud having passed for two touchdowns in last weeks high-pressure win, look for him to continue his elite play in his postseason debut.
Bet the Over on Stroud’s passing touchdowns as he torches the Browns secondary, connecting with his receivers in the end zone as you kickoff your Wild Card Weekend bets with a win.
Tyreek Hill Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+130)
Looking for revenge against his former-team, bank on Miami Dolphins All-Pro wide receiver, Tyreek Hill to hit paydirt against the Kanas City Chiefs.
They’re calling for record lows at Arrowhead Field this weekend, but look for Hill to remain hot as he uses his sensational speed to burn the Chiefs defence en route to the end zone.
While the Chiefs were able to mitigate his efforts in their matchup from earlier this season, don’t expect to see Cheetah to be held under wraps in this win-or-go-home showdown.
Coming off of his highest receiving touchdown total since 2020, look for Hill to leave his mark in this high-stakes game as he scores a touchdown throughout the contest.
Aaron Jones Under 73.5 Rushing Yards (-115)
Having played spectacularly since making his return to the Green Bay Packers lineup after a variety of injuries suffered during the 2023 regular season, expect to see a low rushing yard tally from running back Aaron Jones against the Dallas Cowboys.
After rushing for more than 100 yards in three-straight matchups, look for the Packers star running back to be held in check on the ground by a terrific Cowboys defence. The Cowboys have allowed Under 100 total rushing yards in two of their last three weeks, proving their ability to shut down movement at the line of scrimmage.
Fade the rushing output of Jones in this Wild Card matchup and watch as your bankroll rises as his yardage remains low.
Diontae Johnson Over 3.5 Receptions (+105)
Hoping to provide a spark for his team offensively when they need it most, look for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson to haul in Over 3.5 receptions against the Buffalo Bill.s
Having finished three of his last four matchups with Over 3.5 receptions, look for the always-reliable wideout Johnson to have no trouble carving up the suspect secondary of the Bills this weekend.
With the Steelers offence continuing to sputter as they struggle to produce scoring-drives, look for them to rely heavily on Johnson as he looks to aid them in their upset bid.
Hammer the Over on Johnson’s reception tally and watch as he grabs Over 3.5 passes as you snag a hefty payday with this plus-money prop bet.
Cooper Kupp Over 69.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
Making his return to the postseason after securing the Super Bowl MVP in 2021, look for primetime performer, Cooper Kupp to record Over 69.5 receiving yards against the Detroit Lions.
In a matchup that’s sure to be chock-full of big offensive plays downfield, look for the Los Angeles Rams centerpiece to continue exceling in big game settings. With an unparalleled route running ability, coupled with glue-like hands, Kupp is a threat to bring down a pass anytime it’s within his reach.
Look for Kupp to have his way with the Lions secondary as he toys with one of the leagues worst defences, easily eclipsing 69.5 yards in what’s sure to be a high-scoring shootout.
D’Andre Swift Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+170)
Looking to make a statement in his playoff debut, back Philadelphia Eagles running back D’Andre Swift to punch his way into the end zone as he puts six-points on the scoreboard against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
With Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts potentially playing through a finger injury, look for the already heavy-run offence from Philly to be increased, with plenty of touches going Swifts way.
Look for the Eagles to opt to hand the ball off to Swift rather than running the infamous “Tush Push” near the goal line, setting him up for easy scoring chances against the Buc’s.
