The NFL's Wild Card Round playoff slate features an exciting showdown between the Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams.

Here's three of the best prop bets for this NFC playoff clash, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Cardinals vs Rams Prop Bets

1. Matthew Stafford - Passing Yards: Over 274.5 (-114)

There has to be a fire within Matthew Stafford given he is returning to the playoffs for the first time since the 2016 season. The Rams quarterback is averaging 287.4 passing yards per game on the year and has a wealth of offensive weapons at his disposal. While Arizona has been stout against the pass, Stafford racked up at least 275 passing yards in both games played against this Arizona defense in the regular season. He should have no trouble getting past that number once again in front of his home crowd.

2. Odell Beckham Jr. - Receiving Yards: Under 44.5 (-110)

Stafford having a big day through the air doesn't exactly mean that Odell Beckham Jr. will rack up a ton of receiving yards. In fact, the three-time Pro Bowler hasn't posted 40 receiving yards in a game since he last faced the Cardinals back in Week 14. He is averaging just 11.2 yards per reception across 8 games played with the Rams and now must face an Arizona defense that is allowing just 9.9 yards per completion (T-No. 10 in NFL). Beckham has been more of a red zone threat than anything else this year and would need 4-5 catches to reach this number. He's only hit 4+ catches in half of his eight games in Los Angeles.

3. James Conner - Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+125)

Yes, running back James Conner is likely going to be a game-time decision due to a bothersome rib injury. However, he is a great bet to score if he is able to suit up. Conner reached the end zone twice in both games against the Rams this season and finished the year with 18 touchdowns overall. The Cardinals love giving the ball to their biggest ball-carrier in order to get the necessary tough yards down near the goal line. Bettors uncomfortable with Conner's status can always pivot to relying on Eno Benjamin (+165) or Chase Edmonds (+200) to score instead.
