Derrick Henry to score 2+ touchdowns and Titans to beat Bengals (Boosted from +400 to +500)
The top seeded Tennessee Titans have their MVP running, Derrick Henry returning to the field this afternoon against the Cincinnati Bengals. Henry was having yet another great season with the Titans, running for 937 yards and 10 touchdowns over eight games before going down with a foot injury.
According to a few updates from reporters around the NFL, it’s believed that Henry will get 20+ carries today. That contradicts what the Titans and even what Henry said just a few days ago, when talking about his ankle and how he still wasn’t able to cut on the football field like he used to. Who knows what report is more accurate, but that’s just one of the reasons I’m on the fence with this boost.
The main problem with this special is if the Titans fall behind early, they won’t be able to rely on Henry and their dominant rushing attack as much as they would like. Tennessee is a relatively weak first seed and I’m a huge fan of the Bengals high-powered passing attack.
I’d rather just roll with Bengals Moneyline at +163 and completely forget this special all together.
200+ Points scored total in all four divisional games (Boosted from +100 to +140)
During Wild Card weekend, there were 303 points scored from the 12 teams combined. For this special to hit, each team would have to average 25 points. Only five teams had over 25 points last weekend, but adding teams like the Green Bay Packers into the mix could cause a significant increase in point totals, but I still am not the biggest fan of this offer.
At just +140 odds, money can be wagered elsewhere.
Cooper Kupp or Ja’Marr Chase to have the most receiving yards in the divisional round (Boosted from +220 to +275)
Kupp dominated the league this season, receiving the triple crown for the most yards, receptions, and touchdowns this season.
Last weekend, Kupp notched five receptions for 61 yards and a touchdown as the Rams dismantled the Arizona Cardinals. As for Ja’Marr Chase, he brought in nine receptions for 116 yards against the Raiders.
Taking Kupp or Chase as the leading receiver in the divisional round is a pretty safe bet, but you certainly can’t forget about Stefon Diggs and Davonte Adams who will also both be playing this weekend.
Having two shots with two of the best wideouts is a good boost and Tampa Bay’s secondary is arguably the weakest of the bunch. I’m going to take this boost, expecting a big game from Kupp tomorrow afternoon.
Deebo Samuel or Davante Adams to score first touchdown (Boosted from +270 to +330)
Deebo Samuel was one of the most impressive players in the entire NFL this season. Last weekend against the Cowboys, Samuel rushed 10 times for 72 yards and a touchdown, while also notching three receptions for 38 yards. When you have a team’s best skill player in a daily special, don’t think, just place the bet and move on down the slate.
Davante Adams obviously ranks a top of any wide receiver list in the NFL and is a staple in the Green Bay Packers offense. Again, with a first touchdown boost that includes Adams, it would be foolish to pass this one up. I like this special a lot and honestly, it’s my favorite of the afternoon at +330.
Eddie Mush Special: Aaron Rodgers to throw an interception and Green Bay to lose (Boosted from +650 to +800)
A true Eddie special, and even if he didn’t bet this one, I want nothing to do with it. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are on an absolute tear, and it doesn’t seem like the 49ers have a shot to slow them down in Lambeau tonight.
San Francisco is dealing with injuries to Jimmy Garappolo and won’t be at full health. The 49ers still don’t match up well with the Packers, even if they were. I don’t expect this one to hit, but hey, Eddie has to be right eventually.
