Saturday night during the NFL Playoffs sees a duel of two of the NFL’s leading young quarterbacks, as the Los Angeles Chargers (10-7) head to Jacksonville to play AFC South champion Jaguars (8-8). With Justin Herbert and Trevor Lawrence both making their playoff debuts, this matchup could be the first of many in the future. With two offenses rounding into form, there’s a lot of interesting Chargers vs. Jaguars props to study in this game, making it an intriguing lynchpin of Wild Card Weekend.

Prop Strategy

With a spread that’s close to a Pick Em and no clear and obvious favorite in this game, there’s no market based reason to think either of these teams will be playing from ahead or behind. The Jaguars are neutral in Pass Rate Over Expectation; whereas, the Chargers are negative, meaning they run the ball a bit more than you’d expect for their down and distance. However, both are top 10 in PROE if you look at the past six weeks.

Jacksonville is 9th in the league in yards per carry; whereas, LA is 30th. Jacksonville is 18th in yards per pass attempt. LA is 23rd.

Potential Chargers vs. Jaguars Props To Target

Austin Ekeler Over Receptions

Best available odds: Over/Under /

The Chargers offense has been reliant on short throws to their running backs in recent weeks, with Ekeler averaging 4.4 catches per game in the last five. Go back to the full season, and he has double-digit targets five times. If this game is as competitive as expected, it’s likely Ekeler’s workload will be on the high side, as his high-target games have all been in close games.

Keenan Allen Receiving Yards

Best available odds: Over/Under /

In the six games since the beginning of December, Allen has averaged 11 targets and failed to get less than 60 yards in any of them. With Mike Williams potentially not at 100% after suffering a back contusion, Justin Herbert is likely going to condense his targets and focus on getting Allen involved, especially if they can’t get the running game going.

Travis Etienne Rushing Yards

Best available odds: Over/Under /

With the Jaguars able to run the ball well, and the Chargers last in the league in rush defense, Etienne should be able to run all over the Chargers. With the Chargers having a top-10 pass defense by both DVOA and PFF grading, the Jaguars will look to run more than usual, and that should be profitable for Etienne bettors.

Cameron Dicker FGs Made

Best available odds: Over/Under /

The Chargers have been one of the more conservative teams going for it on fourth downs this year, according to an analytical assessment. With Staley having been burned in 2021 for being too aggressive and losing, he might be more kicking happy in big spots here – which would make Dicker going over his 1.5 likely.

Best of luck betting Chargers vs. Jaguars props.
