The NFL's Wild Card Round playoff slate features an exciting showdown between the Las Vegas Raiders and Cincinnati Bengals.

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

Raiders vs Bengals Prop Bets

1. Most Passing Yards in Game - Joe Burrow (-115)

There may not be another quarterback in the league on as much of a hot streak as Cincinnati's Joe Burrow. The second-year pro has thrown for 300 or more yards in four his last five games, which includes two separate performances of over 440 yards. In comparison, Las Vegas' Derek Carr has thrown for fewer than 270 yards in each of his last six games. That is what makes this bet stick out. Most of the statistics here are a wash. Both the Raiders and Bengals struggle to defend the pass and both offenses rank amongst the league's best in yards per completion. Burrow simply has better weapons at his disposal, though.

2. Josh Jacobs - Receiving Yards: Over 19.5 (-110)

This number has been slowly getting lower and lower over the last few weeks. That is because Jacobs has racked up just 24 receiving yards over his last three games played. However, the 23-year-old is still averaging 23.2 receiving yards on 3.6 receptions per contest this season. He draws a great matchup going up against a Cincinnati defense that has allowed the sixth-most yards through the air to opposing RBs (769). This game is projected to be close, which means Carr should be looking for his top dump-off target all the way up until the final whistle blows. Back Jacobs to cash this over.

3. Ja'Marr Chase - Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+100)

Ja'Marr Chase has had one heck of a season. The dynamic pass-catcher set the Cincinnati franchise record for receiving yards by a rookie (1,455) and is tied for the team lead with 13 touchdowns. Betting on him to score this weekend is a not a bad idea. Chase reached the end zone against the Raiders back in Week 11 and has seen at least 1 red zone target in four of his last five games. The former LSU Tiger is a threat to score no matter where the Bengals are on the field. That will come in handy against a Raider's defense that has posted the 12th-worst pass defense DVOA rating.
