Divisional Round Player Props: Best Player Props to Bet from Connor Allen

The Wild Card Round was an interesting one. I had two unders in the Bills-Steelers game prior to it being moved. After Covid, sportsbooks tightened up their terms and conditions, which now state that even if a game changes dates, as long as it is played within a week, all bets stand. That was extremely unfortunate, as the originally scheduled game would have seen probably the worst weather in NFL history. It was a blizzard with 25-30 MPH winds, gusts up to 40 MPH, and temperatures in the single-digits. They then moved the game to the day after, where they had relatively mild weather and just had to deal with the cold. Luckily, both James Cook over 14.5 carries and Stefon Diggs under 59.5 receiving yards came through, but it was an unnecessary sweat.

I was 4-2 on props heading into the final game, where the Bucs thoroughly dominated the Eagles. That bad of a thrashing was not really on my radar as a possibility. That led to 18 carries for Rachaad White, which busted our under there. Dallas Goedert also had two catches called back by penalty and then was injured on his last catch, which lost us over 44.5 receiving yards. We got in early, the market moved over 50 receiving yards by close, and we still lost. My co-worker Ryan Noonan coined “LCLV” or “Losing Closing Line Value,” where you get CLV and still find a way to lose. It’s mostly a joke, and CLV for props doesn’t really mean a whole lot since it’s largely steam, and any jabroni with a following can move a line, but still hurts nonetheless.

Noonan and I have combined to win over 20 units on unique player props this season and will continue firing through the Super Bowl. You can get access for the cheapest price yet at just $19.99.

Divisional Round Player Props

Jayden Reed over 3.5 receptions (-135 Bet365)

This is widely available with DraftKings still posting a -135. It's more juice than we normally like to bet into, but I think it’s a pretty sizeable discount from what it should be. Reed had 4+ receptions in 8 consecutive games prior to last week where the Packers went run-heavy and used a season-high of 12 personnel. Reed is the primary slot guy so he didn’t see much run with less 11 personnel.

It’s very, very unlikely the Packers, as 9.5-point dogs, are able to run the ball as well or as frequently on the Niners as they did. With more pass volume out of 11 and a potentially negative game script, there are lots of outs for an over here, even in a “tough” matchup. The Packers could also opt to throw the ball quickly to negate the 49ers pressure.

I normally don't like to release things this early, but with multiple outs and a price that will likely climb into the -160 or 4.5 range, I wanted to fire it now.
