Matthew Stafford Over 274.5 Yards Passing

Matthew Stafford returns to the postseason following a five-year hiatus. Stafford is averaging 287.4 yards passing per game and projects for 304.7 yards against the Cardinals, developing OddsShopper‘s 64% expected win rate and 21% return on investment for the over. Arizona has allowed just 225.58 yards per game by opposing quarterbacks while ranking 17th in PFF coverage grade. Worlds collide as Stafford has thrown for at least 273 yards on 12 occasions this season yet faces a Cardinals secondary which has not allowed as many since their Week 9 loss to San Francisco (298 yards allowed). Projected for a full 30 yards of clearance on the prop line the over on Stafford’s yardage is a considerable value.

Kyler Murray Over 23.5 Completions

The Cardinals have fallen from grace but Kyler Murray‘s consistent volume can help guide them through Wild Card Monday, along with securing the over on a feasible completions prop. Murray has averaged 23.78 completions per game while projecting for 24.91 completions against the Rams, positioning OddsShopper‘s 60% expected win rate and 23% return on investment for the over. Los Angeles has surrendered 24.35 completions per game as fourth most in the NFL along with a 66.5% completion rate allowed to opposing quarterbacks. In spite of the final outcomes Murray has averaged 27.2 completions per game in the past five games and 23 completions against Detroit the fewest in that span. At plus money odds on his regular season average, while beneath his past month resume, the over on Murray’s completions is a fantastic value.

Cam Akers Under 33.5 Yards Rushing

The reemergence of Cam Akers sparks intrigue, though a steep rushing prop given his change-of-pace role project well for the under. In five games from the 2020 season Akers averaged 48.1 yards per game as he projects for 29.16 yards, extending to OddsShopper‘s 76% expected win rate and 39% return on investment for the under. Arizona’s run defense remains suspect having allowed 97.23 yards per game to opposing running back groups and ranking 19th in rush defense according to PFF. Akers’ workload remains in question upon his return to action in the Wild Card Playoff round, involved in just 20% of snaps in Week 18 garnering five carries and three yards. With an effective Sony Michel running some of his best to date, lock in the under on Akers’ yards.
