NFL Divisional Round: Our Top Player Prop Picks for Saturday, January 20
The surging Houston Texans and rookie sensation C.J. Stroud take on the potential MVP and the Ravens, while Jordan Love and the Packers travel to San Francisco to attempt to slow down the most potent offense in the league. .
Check out our entire player prop picks card for Saturday of the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs. Good luck!
QB C.J. Stroud (HOU) OVER 57.7% COMP
C.J. Stroud only missed this prop mark four times this season, with the OROTY frontrunner hitting the 75% completion mark in the last three outings. While the Ravens' defense is top 5 in opponent completion percentage, look for Bobby Slowik and Stroud to try and pick apart Baltimore with short gains rather than airing it out early in the game.
Although it is difficult to see Stroud have a similar performance as Houston’s massive Wild Card win, we love C.J. to complete more than 60% of his passes this Saturday.
QB Lamar Jackson (BAL) OVER 18.5 COMP
While the Houston defensive front has been difficult to run against, their secondary has holes that Lamar Jackson can exploit. Houston is bottom three in opponent completion percentage while allowing 23 completions per game this season.
If Lamar didn’t get benched in the Ravens’ huge win over the Dolphins in Week 17, he would have hit this mark in three of his last four outings. While Gus Edwards and Jackson himself might struggle on the ground, he should have no issues finding Likely, OBJ, and Flowers downfield.
WR Zay Flowers (BAL) OVER 4.5 REC
You bet on the most talented playmakers in playoff football, and that is exactly what we are doing with Zay Flowers. Zay was targeted an astounding 28 times in his last four games of the season while hauling in three touchdowns.
Again, with this Houston defense susceptible in the air, look for the rookie to shine just as much as Puka and Rashee Rice did in the divisional round.
QB Jordan Love (GB) UNDER 7.5 RUSH YDS
After Green Bay’s (what feels like) franchise-altering win against the Cowboys last week, they have to head into the Bay to take on a top 3 defense in the NFL.
Led by Fred Warner, the 49ers not only allow the 3rd-least rush YPG, but rarely allow breakaway runs to non-rushing QBs. Love himself has only hit this mark once in the previous six outings including last week’s win.
QB Brock Purdy (SF) UNDER 30.5 PASS ATT
When the 49ers win, Brock Purdy throws the ball less. It’s that simple on Saturday. Kyle Shanahan will utilize a refreshed McCaffrey, Mitchell, and Samuel to take on more rushing duties to try and defeat a Packers defense that allowed 128 YPG on the ground to opponents.
The potential MVP under center has only hit this over once in the 9ers’ previous eight games.
