Best Prop Bets for NFL Wildcard Weekend: Tom Brady, Travis Etienne Look Strong

NFL Wildcard Weekend is here! With six games on the NFL Playoff schedule for Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, options are limited for bettors when it comes to betting point spreads, totals, and moneylines. But bettors can also find hundreds of prop bets for NFL Wildcard Weekend at major online sportsbooks.

There should be a lot of great action to keep fans entertained, watching, and betting. Let’s examine some of the best prop bets for NFL Wildcard Weekend.

Prop Bets For NFL Wildcard Weekend Saturday, Jan. 14

Seattle Seahawks vs. San Francisco 49ers

  • Kenneth Walker III rushing yards, Under 60.5 -125 (PointsBet Sportsbook)

Walker is a talented, young running back, but he is facing a 49ers defense that is stingy against the run. They allowed just 77.7 yards per game during the regular season (No. 2 in the league) and just 3.4 yards per carry (tied for No. 1). In Week 2 against San Francisco, when Walker made his debut, he had 10 yards on four carries. He had a better game in Week 16 but was limited to 47 yards on 12 carries.

Las Vegas’ Josh Jacobs was the only lead running back to gain 60+ yards against the 49ers’ defense this season (69 yards on 17 carries in Week 17).

Los Angeles Chargers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Travis Etienne rushing yards, over 75.5 yards -110 (BetMGM Sportsbook) or
  • To get 100+ rushing yards +200 (PointsBet)

The Chargers have one of the worst run defenses in the league (No. 28; 145.8 ypg allowed). When these two teams met in Week 3, Etienne ran for 45 yards on 13 carries, but James Robinson ran for 100 on 17 carries. Robinson is now with the Jets.

Etienne averaged 5.1 ypc this season, and the Chargers’ defense has given up 5.4 ypc. In the nine games that Etienne was the lead running back and finished the game, he averaged 16.6 carries a game. If he averages 5.1 ypc and gets 16 carries, he’ll go over 75.5, but he’ll probably get closer to 20 carries.

Prop Bets For NFL Wildcard Weekend Sunday, Jan. 15

Miami Dolphins vs. Buffalo Bills

Knox has six touchdowns on the season, but he has had one in each of the last four weeks. The Bills will undoubtedly pass early and often since that is what they are good at, and the Dolphins’ defense is not good against the pass (No. 27; 234.8 ypg allowed). Teams have scored 27 passing touchdowns vs. the Miami D (No. 26).

Tight ends have recorded eight receiving touchdowns against the Miami D this season.

New York Giants vs. Minnesota Vikings

James has 57 receptions for 569 yards this season, but he has been one of Daniel Jones’ favorite targets the last four weeks (7, 11, 5, and 9 targets). He had 45+ yards in three of those four games and had 42 in the outlier. Against the Vikings on Christmas Eve, he had eight receptions (11 targets) for 90 yards.

The Vikings have been one of the worst teams against the pass this season (No. 31; 265.6 ypg allowed). No team has given up more yards to wide receivers than the Vikings this season.

Prop Bets For NFL Wildcard Weekend — Monday, Jan. 16

Dallas Cowboys vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  • Tom Brady, passing yards over 275.5 -114 (FanDuel)

Brady struggled to get the Bucs’ offense on track against the Cowboys in Week 1 (and most of the season). But the GOAT has been getting the job done the last few weeks with 280+ in four of the last five games (Week 18 does not count). With how the Bucs’ run game has struggled this season, it would not be shocking to see him take the air early and often against Dallas.

It is hard to have confidence in the Dallas Cowboys. Yes, they have played great and have plenty of talent on both sides of the ball, but you can’t trust them. They played a terrible game last week against the Commanders, reminiscent of their performance against the Bucs in Week 1. Seldom-used Titans QB Josh Dobbs had 232 passing yards against them in Week 17, and Philadelphia’s Gardner Minshew and Jacksonville’s Trevor Lawrence had 300+ in the previous two weeks.
