No Team To Score Unanswered 3 Times (+165)
If this were to happen, I’d expect it to be the Bills. But in reality, this is the playoffs. And I don’t expect to see any team come out and get dominated, especially when both of these teams have good coaches. Messy conditions and strong run games with physical defenses seems to be the perfect ingredients for a low-scoring, classic playoff snow game. I don’t see either team running away with anything
James Cook Anytime TD (+125)
With this weather report and even considering the move to play on Monday, expect to see a ton of James Cook, Leonard Fournette, and Josh Allen using their legs to move the ball up and down the field. I could have gone with a Josh Allen anytime TD here as well, but Jimbo Cook is giving you more money for the bet and he will have just as many opportunities in this game and anyone to score. Last major snow game like this in Buffalo, LeSean McCoy ended it with a run-off touchdown. Will we see history repeat itself?
Jordan Poyer Tackles +4.5 (+130)
Over the last two games, Jordan Poyer has 13 tackles and three assists. He’s been helping in run support and he looks like he’s having fun while doing it. With all the conversation about the snow storm and the difficulty throwing the ball — and the potential for winter weather on Monday, each team will be looking to run if they can, so they can still move the ball up and down the field. Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren are capable backs and we’ll see a heavy dose of both. I expect Poyer to introduce himself to them both throughout the game.
Prop bets, short for “proposition bets,” are specific wagers made on various events or occurrences within a football game that do not necessarily relate to the final outcome or score. These bets are commonly offered during major football events like the Super Bowl. Prop bets can span a wide range of categories, from player performance and statistics to specific in-game incidents or even elements unrelated to the actual gameplay itself.
If you were to stack these bets for a parlay, your odds would increase to +1200.
A parlay is a type of wager where bettors combine two or more individual bets into one larger bet. In order to win a parlay bet, all of the individual bets within the parlay must win. The potential payout for a parlay bet is often higher than if the bets were placed individually, but the risk is also greater since all of the bets must win in order to receive any payout.
As for +1200 odds, this is a specific type of odds commonly used in sports betting. When the odds are listed as +1200, it means that a bet on that outcome would result in a potential payout of $1200 for every $100 wagered. In other words, the bettor would receive $1300 if the bet is won (the initial $100 wager, plus the $1200 in winnings). In general, the higher the odds, the greater the potential payout, but also the lower the likelihood of the outcome occurring.
We kindly request and encourage all individuals to engage in responsible betting practices. While betting can be a fun and exciting activity, it is crucial to approach it with caution and moderation. Remember to set limits for yourself and stick to them. Only wager an amount of money that you are comfortable losing and never go beyond your means. Additionally, ensure that betting remains a form of entertainment, rather than a means to solve financial or personal problems. Always keep in mind that there are risks involved, so it is essential to bet responsibly for your own well-being.
