When it comes to the NFL Playoffs, pro football handicappers don’t just have the opportunity to make bets against the spread, moneyline wagers, or bet on games to go over and under. The NFL postseason is a great opportunity for sports bettors to also make prop plays. Check out four prop betting strategies before Super Wild Card Weekend. Let’s get right to it so you can bet against the NFL Playoffs odds.
NFL Wild Card Games Prop Betting Strategies to Win
NFL Super Wild Card Sunday
- When: Saturday, Jan. 15 – Monday, Jan. 17
Place your conference championship bets before the first wild card game
Only the 1-seeds get the byes. So unless you plan on picking a 1-seed to win the AFC or NFC, you should make your conference future bets before the first slate of playoff games.
The field will be cut in half after wild card weekend, which means there’s a good chance the odds on the team you like to win the NFC and the AFC are also cut in half or more depending on the team.
Value is the name of the game when it comes to future betting. So if you believe New England, as an example, upsets Kansas City, Tennessee, and Buffalo and wins the AFC, back them before they play the Raiders on Saturday.
Place your Super Bowl LVI wager before the first WC contest
Just like conference championship futures, it makes sense to bet on the team you like to win Super Bowl LVI before the first wild card game.
Don’t wait until the Philadelphia Eagles upset the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before betting on Philly to win the Super Bowl. If you think Philly, or the Steelers, or any team, can win the championship, bet on them before the odds drop.
This is true even if you like one of the 1-seeds, either the Green Bay Packers or the Tennessee Titans. If the improbable happens and the Eagles upset Tom Brady and the Bucs, the odds on the Packers to win the Lombardi Trophy will dive.
Look to play both defensive and offensive player props
Player props are a fantastic way to profit. But don’t stick to offensive player props. Also back defensive players.
Look for defensive and offensive props that you think offer the most value. Then bet accordingly.
After MyBookie posts wildcard prop spread lines, make sure to assess per your personal line
Individually create against the spread lines for every wild card game. Then look for alternate lines on MyBookie.
You can make decent profit on alternate NFL Playoff lines. So search or ask for alternate lines that coincide with your personal spread lines.
