2021-22 NFL Wild Card Weekend Prop Bets – Monday

Welcome to the 2021-22 NFL Wild Card Weekend Prop Bets – Monday Night Football edition!

The final game of Wild Card weekend comes down to a matchup between two NFC West rivals. The Arizona Cardinals will travel to Los Angeles to take on the Rams for the third time this year. The winner of this game will move on to Tampa Bay to play the Bucs in the Divisional round next weekend.

These two teams split their regular-season series. Arizona handled LA fairly easily back in Week 4 when they defeated them 37-20 on the Rams’ home turf. But, the Rams got their revenge in Week 14, taking down the Cardinals 30-23 in Arizona.

Arizona has actually been much better on the road this season than at home. They went 8-1 on the road and are currently riding a five-game losing streak at home. However, they have not had much success against Sean McVay and the Rams since Kliff Kingsbury has taken over the head coaching duties. Over the past three seasons, the Rams have won five of six games.

The Cardinals have a banged-up secondary and will be without their starting perimeter corners, Robert Alford and Marco Wilson, which is great news for Matthew Stafford. Stafford has thrown eight interceptions over his last four games. That is after throwing just nine in his first 13 games to start the season.

Arizona could get JJ Watt back which would be a huge addition as they will need to get after Stafford if they want to move on to next weekend. If they can’t manage to put Stafford on his back a few times tonight, he and his receiving corps could have a field day against this secondary.

Cooper Kupp
OVER 7.5 receptions (-135 on BetMGM) 2u
OVER 100.5 receiving yards (-125 on FOXbet)

Kupp had 13 receptions for 123 receiving yards in their Week 14 matchup. He’s also had 8+ receptions in 10 of his 17 games while eclipsing 100+ receiving yards in 11 of 17.

As I mentioned earlier, Arizona is without their top two perimeter cornerbacks so that is an advantage for Kupp. I would not be surprised if Kupp saw 15+ targets tonight, leading him to cashing both of these props.

Kyler Murray – OVER 38.5 rushing yards (-110 on FD)

The Cardinals will need Murray to do it all if they want a chance of taking down LA and that includes taking off and making plays with his legs.

Over his last six games, he is averaging 6.5 rush attempts for 46 rushing yards. Murray has topped 39+ rush yards in four of those six games. He also went over this number in both regular-season matchups against the Rams (39 & 61).

Longshots/Same Game Parlay

Kupp 2 TDs (+460 on SugarHouse)

DK SGP – Kupp 95+ rec yds + Michel 45+ rush yds + Murray 35+ rush yds + Kirk 40+ rec yds + Akers UNDER rush yds (+600)
