NFL receiving props: Championship Sunday

Each weekend throughout the season we will highlight individual player prop bet options. Here are some WR props to consider.

Deebo Samuel (Over 4.5 receptions / 49.5 receiving yards)

The Eagles led the NFL in DVOA pass defense this season and have a few shutdown corners, including Darius Slay, who will make it tough on Brandon Aiyuk and the 49ers’ boundary receivers. Samuel rarely lines up on the outside, so his production should be ensured on quick screens and short passes to give the YAC monster an opportunity to break big gains.

Deebo was held in check in a low-scoring affair against Dallas, but caught six of nine targets for 133 yards and a TD, with 32 rushing yards against Seattle’s defense. Samuel is getting +170 odds to score a touchdown at BetMGM, which he’s done in three of his last five playoff games. With a rookie QB under center, the Niners should continue to feed their best athletes on short stuff to protect Brock Purdy from a ball-hawking Eagles secondary.  

Ja’Marr Chase (Under 83.5 rec yards)

This is a big number with -106 odds at FanDuel and Chase is being projected for up to 85.5 yards at other books, such as PointsBet. The talented second-year receiver is fully capable of topping 86 yards in a decent matchup against the Chiefs 14th-rated pass defense. But rookie CB Trent McDuffie and veteran CB L’Jarius Sneed both returned from injuries down the stretch and played well. McDuffie allowed the seventh-fewest YPG (23) in his coverage and he’s expected to line up on Chase with Sneed taking on Tee Higgins.

Chase destroyed the Chiefs at the end of the regular season last year, then was held to six catches for 53 yards in the AFC Championship at Arrowhead. He caught five balls for 61 yards last Sunday at Buffalo, and his production was limited because the Bengals have so many injuries on the offensive line that they can’t wait for downfield routes to develop. With Mahomes banged up and the Bengals playing elite pass defense on the other side of the ball, this AFC title game doesn’t profile as a shootout. 

Darius Slayton (Over 3.5 receptions / 45.5 receiving yards)

While the Eagles have an elite secondary, this is quite a low reception prop for the Giants’ top receiver. Slayton is averaging 52.3 receiving YPG on 3.7 catches in road games this season and caught two balls for 42 yards in a blowout loss to the Eagles in Week 14. The third matchup between these division rivals should assuredly be closer, with Slayton set to play a big role after catching 4 of 8 targets for 88 yards in Minnesota last week. He played on 93.8% of snaps with 86.8% route participation in the Wild Card round. Slayton averages 10.2 yards per target this season, which should help him top this yardage prop if he can get free down the field. 

Most receiving yards

This is an open proposition where bettors can select the WR or tight end they think has the best chance to lead the NFL in receiving yards. Justin Jefferson and Cooper Kupp were the favorites entering the 2022 NFL season as Jefferson was +800 at DraftKings Sportsbook and Kupp was +900.

Most receiving TDs

This propositions bettors to pick the receiver most likely to lead the league in receiving scores. Kupp is again in the mix of favorites, coming in at +500 at DraftKings. Ja’Marr Chase joins him with +500 odds to lead the NFL in receiving TDs.

Player totals: Receiving yards over/under

Instead of betting on the league leaders, bettors can take individual prop bets on specific players. There are projected totals assigned to many of the top receivers in the league with odds for taking the Over or Under on each projection. Once the season gets underway, players will be assigned a projection for specific games. So for example, ahead of the Bills’ Week 1 matchup with the Rams, there will be a prop on whether Stefon Diggs goes over or under a listed number of receiving yards set by a sportsbook.

Player totals: Receiving TDs over/under

The same props are available on a weekly or season-long basis for receiving touchdowns. These props are obviously much lower than receiving totals, which makes sense considering only three players posted double-digit receiving TDs last season. Once the season starts, prop bets will be available on whether star receivers catch 1 or 2 TDs, with the odds usually listed in between each number (example: Ja’Marr Chase O/U 1.5 receiving TDs) to avoid a “push” where the bettor gets their wager back because the outcome falls exactly on the projection.
