We’re down to the field of four as we get ready for the NFL Conference Championships this weekend. As these teams prepare for war on Sunday, betting fans want to place some wagers and win big.
We dug into the numbers and pulled out the best NFL player props bets for the Conference Championships, which include plays on Patrick Mahomes having a tough day at the office, Brock Purdy torching the Detroit Lions with his arm, and Isaiah Likely raking in a good amount of yards.
Let’s look at our favorite NFL Conference Round player props picks from some of our top-rated sports betting apps.
Patrick Mahomes – Passing Yards:
The Ravens are no joke. They just completely stuffed the Houston Texans offense in the Division Round, holding the ground game to 38 measly yards and CJ Stroud to 175 yards passing.
Mahomes managed to total just 215 passing yards in the Divisional Round against the Buffalo Bills, and that was supposed to be the easier of these two games. Now on the road for what appears to be a very rainy afternoon, Mahomes and the Chiefs’ offense looks the weakest it’s ever been during their dynasty and must face the top seed in the AFC.
Fans may have to accept that this isn’t Kansas City’s year, and that includes a subpar performance by Mahomes to send themselves packing.
Isaiah Likely – Receiving Yards:
Mark Andrews returns this week after being sidelined for the last six games with an ankle injury, and reports indicate that he’ll be on a pitch count. Other reports say he’ll be out there for key third downs and red zone plays, which makes us nervous about his play.
Instead, we’re looking at the Ravens’ other tight end, Isaiah Likely, who has been a viable red zone red zone threat in Andrews’ absence. Andrews’ return will certainly hurt Likely’s scoring upside, but we still trust the second-year tight end to hit the Over for his yardage.
We need him to collect 21 yards, which he has done in his last seven games. The Chiefs allowed the 19th most tight end receptions (82) during the regular season.
Brock Purdy – Passing Yards:
The Lions are on some Cinderella ride. Their offense is top-notch, but their defense, particularly against the pass, is one of the worst in the league.
Detroit has let quarterbacks of any caliber have their way through the air against them all season, and it has gotten worse over the last several weeks. The Lions have allowed an average of 373.6 passing yards over the last five games. They allowed 706 yards in their two playoff games alone.
Detroit gives up big plays through the air like it’s nothing. Opponents have averaged 7.3 yards per pass attempt (30th in NFL) against the Lions this season. Guess which quarterback had the most completions of 20 yards or more during the regular season? It’s Brock Purdy.
If the 49ers look to attack the Lions through the air, as they should do, then Purdy should have an easy time clearing this line.
