The NFL’s Super Wild Card Round finale takes place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa where the NFC South Champion Bucs play host to the reeling Philadelphia Eagles with a date in the Divisional Round against the Lions on the line.

It will also be the last opportunity to bet a Monday Night Football game until September, so we might as well go out with a bang right?

As per BestOdds tradition, here are our four favorite player prop bets for tonight’s game. 

Jalen Hurts Anytime Touchdown

Are you even betting on an Eagles game if you don’t have a Jalen Hurts Anytime TD ticket in your pocket? I say no.

The Eagles have a myriad of issues entering this game, and this could very well be the last game they play this season before bowing out and having a whole host of questions to answer after starting the season 10-1 before sputtering down the stretch and winding up finishing 11-6.

However, the most consistent part of this Eagles team is the fact that they always seem to find themselves at the 1 or 2 yard line on a possession which inevitably means that we get to see Nick Sirianni walking up and down the sideline chirping anyone within earshot right before a mass of human bodies shoves Jalen Hurts into the end zone.

There have been several occurrences this season where Hurts has also had designed QB draws in the Red Zone that have had Hurts find his way to pay dirt, and either of these scenarios seem incredibly plausible for tonight’s game.

From a more statistical standpoint, Hurts has scored in six of his last nine games, and did also score in the Eagles’ Week 3 win over the Bucs.

Don’t think twice, just sprinkle on Jalen to score again.

BestOdds: BetMGM (-125)

Dallas Goedert OVER 49.5 Receiving Yards

A.J. Brown is out for this one and erasing all of his social media pages from any mentions of the fact he’s an Eagle (though his play down the stretch could also help people forget he’s an Eagle), Julio Jones has the body of a 65-year-old man, and everyone under the sun will flock to Devonta Smith props.

What does that mean for tonight?

I love Dallas Goedert.

The Bucs have been a feel good story all season, but their defense is pretty miserable in stopping the pass.

They enter tonight’s game ranked 29th overall in the NFL and have struggled at slowing down opposing tight ends for the last several weeks.

PlayerReceiving TotalActual Total
Juwan Johnson (NO)26.590
Evan Engram (JAX)53.595
Tucker Kraft (GB)26.557
Kyle Pitts (ATL)39.557
Jonnu Smith (ATL)25.527
Kylen Granson (IND)22.50
George Kittle (SF)53.589

The Bucs have allowed for all but one tight end to go over his receiving yards prop in the last two months, and I’m not sure anyone in the Colts locker room or outside of it would ever bet on Kylen Granson.

Needless to say, they’ve struggled at defending this position.

Someone other than Devonta Smith is going to need to step up in this game and help Jalen Hurts out. I think that someone is Dallas Goedert, and I’m banking on the Bucs recent struggles here to get this ticket over the line.

BestOdds: DraftKings (-140)

Rachaad White OVER 21.5 Receiving Yards

The Bucs have themselves a gem in dual-threat Rachaad White, as the third-year running back from Arizona State had nearly 1,000 yards rushing on the season in addition to having 64 receptions for 549 yards.

Baker Mayfield, understandably, loves Rachaad White. And with Baker playing in tonight’s game with some banged up ribs it’s a very likely scenario that Rachaad will once again be called upon in the screen game, and in the checkdown game to help make sure Kyle Trask does not play a snap in this game.

Then there is that Eagles’ defense, which will have their hands full with the Bucs dynamic duo of Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.

Like the Bucs, the Eagles have been pretty terrible at defending the pass, but they also have surrendered over 32 receiving yards a game to running backs.

White cleared 21.5 yards receiving in 13 of his 17 games this season, including 24 yards in their Week 3 loss against the Eagles.

This Bucs team is starkly different from the last time these two teams met on Monday Night, and White can clear this number in one or two receptions.

BestOdds: FanDuel (-110)

Chris Godwin OVER 54.5 Receiving Yards

Darius Slay returns to the Philadelphia lineup tonight, meaning he will likely get the duty of shadowing Bucs’ star WR Mike Evans.

While Slay is far from the lockdown corner he used to be, you still have to respect his presence in the lineup.

However, you can’t say that about anyone else in the Eagles’ secondary.

Fortunately for Bucs’ fans, that could mean Chris Godwin is in for a big night.

The savvy veteran receiver has cleared 54.5 receiving yards in four of his last five outings, and while we don’t need to rehash the Eagles’ struggles at defending the pass, they have been especially abused by wide receivers who line up in the slot.

Bucs’ offensive coordinator Dave Canales happens to love to utilize his big wide receiver from that exact position, and I think they will attack this vulnerability in the Eagles’ defense frequently tonight.

BestOdds: bet365 (-110)
