- BetOnline and Bovada offer tons of NFL Divisional Round specials and props for Saturday and Sunday’s action
- Patrick Mahomes (+300) is favored to throw for the most passing yards this weekend
- Christian McCaffrey (+525) and Devonta Smith (+1800) are strong bets to lead the NFL in rushing and receiving, respectively
The Divisional Round is widely known as “the best weekend in football” and this year should be no exception. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs host Jacksonville on Saturday afternoon. Philadelphia welcomes the Giants for the nightcap. Then on Sunday, Josh Allen’s Bills collide with Joe Burrow’s Bengals before the 49ers and Cowboys renew their decades-old rivalry.
Most Passing Yards in Divisional Round
Patrick Mahomes (+300) led the league with 5,250 passing yards this season. And the Jaguars allowed the fifth-most passing yards per week (238.5) in 2022. While the soon-to-be two-time NFL MVP is a worthy favorite, his opponent Trevor Lawrence (+700) is our preferred bet. The sophomore quarterback only had four +300-yard passing outings this year. But he’ll be forced to put the ball in the air to keep pace with the high-scoring Chiefs.
Jalen Hurts (+800) is undervalued due to his dual-threat ability and lingering shoulder injury. However, the Eagles starter is off the injury report. Dak Prescott (+600) is also intriguing after passing for 305 yards on Wild Card Weekend. In addition to giving up 253 yards to Geno Smith on Saturday, the Niners were torched by Jarret Stidham for 365 yards in Week 17.

Most Rushing Yards in Divisional Round
Miles Sanders or CMC?
Miles Sanders (+650) piled up 144 yards and two TDs in Philadelphia’s 48-22 victory over the Giants in Week 14. Right on par for Big Blue’s defense, which allowed 144.2 rushing yards per week in 2022 (sixth-worst). While Saquon Barkley (+450) was bottled up in the aforementioned meeting, he looked explosive against the Vikings, running for 84 yards and a score. The Eagles have the best passing defense in the NFL so Barkley should get the rock.
All that said, Christian McCaffrey is our best bet at +525. Run CMC has rushed for over 100 yards in four of his last six games. Dallas’ D also ranks bottom-third in rushing yards allowed per game.
Most Receiving Yards in Divisional Round
|Richie James Jr.||+2800||+2500|
Ja’Marr Chase (+550) and Stefon Diggs (+800) will share the same field on Sunday. Neither Buffalo or Cincinnati are known for their pass defense. That could be good news for Tee Higgins (+1400) and Gabe Davis (+1500) as well. The best way to beat the 49ers defense is through the air with CeeDee Lamb (+900). Yet, that’s not the receiver we’re targeting in the Divisional Round.
Devonta Smith (+1800) averaged 6.5 receptions for 98 yards over the season’s final six games with four touchdowns. With the Giants keying on A.J. Brown (+650) on Saturday night, the ‘Slim Reaper’ could bust out in a big way.
