The NFL Super Wild Card weekend produced six entertaining contests and now we’re down to only eight teams remaining in the running for the Super Bowl. As we approach the Divisional Round of the playoffs, there are several good bets on the board. Let’s examine three of them at BetAnySports that could offer some good value.
NFL Giants-Eagles Under 48.5
Everyone is excited about the New York Giants after their offense – once deemed to be anemic – just ran through the Minnesota Vikings. They racked up 31 points and 432 yards of offense as many are now anointing quarterback Daniel Jones elite. Sure, he was crisp with 302 passing yards while adding 78 more on the ground but consider that he faced the league’s 31st-ranked pass defense. The Eagles, who are off a bye, should be far more prepared for him.
Jones only faced the Eagles once this season went 18-of-27 for 169 yards, but he did have two touchdowns (one through the air and one on the ground). The Giants lost 48-22. He’s going not going to find it so easy this week. Combined with the fact that we’re not entirely sure how healthy Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is or how in-rhythm their offense will be and the under looks good here.
Patrick Mahomes Over 114.5 Passing Yards
The Kansas City Chiefs are the biggest favorite on the board this week and it’s hard to bet against them. Do you really want to go against Andy Reid off a bye? His teams are 27-4 with an extra week to prepare.
One player that should feast is quarterback Patrick Mahomes. He’ll be going up against a Jaguars defense that has struggled in recent weeks. Sure, they shut down the Chargers in the second half, but they couldn’t get a stop in the first half – even if they were put in bad positions. The week before, the Jags needed a win and made Joshua Dobbs look like a quality starter.
The Jags pass defense was among the worst in the NFL, giving up 238.5 passing yards per game. Only four other teams allowed more. Mahomes will feast and get over the number.
NFL Stefon Diggs Over 80.5 Receiving Yards
The Cincinnati Bengals-Buffalo Bills rematch is going to be one of the most anticipated games of the weekend. Look for many of the offensive stars on both sides to shine.
Diggs should have a huge game as the Bengals secondary appears to be a weak spot. Chidobie Awuzie is already out, and Eli Apple was banged up in last week’s game against the Baltimore Ravens. And even if Apple plays, he’s not exactly a top-flight corner.
This game has the feel of one that will have a lot of back-and-forth and tons of points on the board. Look for Josh Allen to have a big day and for Diggs to get over his number of 80.5 – a number he easily cleared last week when he finished with 114 yards on nine grabs.
