USFantasy continues to get creative with their fantasy props just in time for NFL Wild Card Weekend.
Here’s a rundown of the various props available:
Prop No. 1 Quarterbacks; Prop No. 2 Mix RB & WR; Prop No. 3 Oakland vs. Houston Margin of Victory; Prop No. 4 Highest Scoring Team (Wild Card based minus Houston, Oakland); Prop No. 5 Detroit vs. Seattle Margin of Victory; Prop No. 6 Alternate Point Spread and Total Parlay (Detroit at Seattle -14.5 (49.5)); Prop No. 7 Quarterbacks; Prop No. 8 Mix RB & WR; Prop No. 9 Miami vs. Pittsburgh Margin of Victory; Prop No. 10 Alternate Point Spread and Total Parlay (Miami at Pittsburgh -17.5 (54.5)); Prop No. 11 NY Giants vs. Green Bay Margin of Victory; Prop No. 12 Alternate Point Spread and Total Parlay (NY Giants at Green Bay -11.5 (52.5)).
Also available to bet to win the AFC (Prop No. 1) or NFC (Prop No. 2) Championship odds. For you college football fans, Prop No. 2 CFB Championship Margin of Victory and four different Alternate Point Spread and Total Parlay for Alabama vs. Clemson. I would keep an eye on the Alabama +3.5 and either total props.
Let’s now talk about some picks for this weekend. If you read my article in the weekly edition of Gaming Today, I gave out some preliminary thoughts. All of the quarterbacks, running back and wide receivers I gave out are in Prop No. 1 and No. 2. Tight ends were not used. This time for the playoffs I am going to give out my order since all players were used. As always I recommend WIN/PLACE/SHOW bets but feel free to give the exotics a shot.
Prop No. 1 Quarterbacks
My order: Russell Wilson, Eil Manning – With the matchups these two have I feel like they will come out on top against bigger QB names like Aaron Rodgers and Big Ben. I like Wilson a little more because I do think the Lions will put some points up early causing Wilson to get into a rhythm early. Word is he is taking off the knee brace which I think has severely limited him this season. Eli will find a way to be effective as the Packers have no secondary to speak of and I think he an Odell traumatize this defense.
Prop No. 2 Wide Receivers
My order: Antonio Brown, Latavius Murray, Jay Ajayi, Odell Beckham, Doug Baldwin. I originally had Baldwin ahead of Beckham but I think he’s a factor and could easily win this group. Something tells me the Dolphins will do a good job containing Le’Veon Bell and that should lead to a big day from Brown. Murray and Ajayi should be the work horses for their respective teams and I am expecting two touchdowns from both guys.
Prop No. 11 NYG/GB Margin of Victory
Take a shot on No.7 NYG by 14 or more currently at 14-1, I think they are quite capable of blowing the doors off the Packers.
Parting thought, keep track of the odds board for the AFC/NFC Championships, there could be some incredible value in that group since it’s pari-mutuel betting.
