The NFL postseason is here, which only means the best of the best are suiting up to earn the right to advance in their respective conferences. There are some huge stars set to show up on the biggest stage of them all, so you might as well at least profit on these huge performances. 


Here are the top prop bets of Wild Card weekend provided by FanDuel Sportsbook. 

6. Ezekiel Elliott: Most Rushing Yards of Wild Card Weekend (+250)

A matchup against the Seattle Seahawks has Zeke as the top performer on the ground written all over it for a number of reasons. Seattle has given up the most yards on the ground out of any remaining playoff team, including 127 yards to Elliott the first time they played this season. Zeke also led the league in rushing this year. If Dallas advances, it'll be through Elliott. 

5. Eric Ebron: Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+150)

The first time the Colts played the Texans, Andrew Luck found Eric Ebron for a touchdown. The second time these teams played, Ebron found the end zone once again. Do you see the pattern here? Ebron has failed to score in just six games this season, which makes this an enticing opportunity against a team he's torched time and time again. 

4. Deshaun Watson: Most Passing Yards of Wild Card Weekend (+640)

For the Texans to defeat the Colts, they're going to need Deshaun Watson to go off like he did in Week 4 when he threw for 375 yards, compared to just 267 in the Texans loss to the Colts. With this team likely to lean on the passing game, look for Watson to wear his superhero cape this weekend. 

3. Wild Card Weekend Lowest Scoring Team: Los Angeles Chargers (+480)

With the amount of loaded offenses taking the field this weekend, all signs point to the Chargers as the ones who will struggle the most. For those who may forget, this team was completely manhandled by the Ravens  back in Week 15 when they scored just 10 points. That was their lowest total of the season as they scored at least 20 in every other contest. 

2. T.Y. Hilton: Most Receiving Yards of Wild Card Weekend (+690)

There are extremely talented receivers in each and every game, but no player has a matchup like Hilton. The Texans have one of the best defenses in the league, but that hasn't slowed Hilton down as he had an absurd 314 yards against them in two games this season. This isn't anything new considering the veteran wideout had 189 yards against them the season prior. You can't count on much these days, but you can definitely trust that Houston has no idea how to slow this man down. 

1. Nick Foles to Throw For 300+ Passing Yards & Philadelphia Eagles to Win (+500)

The legend of Nick Foles continues as he heads into Wild Card weekend. There is too much going for Foles, who has led the NFL in passing yards per game  since he regained the starting job in Philadelphia. He also averaged 323 yards per game passing during last year's improbable playoff run. If that isn't enough, quarterbacks who are playing in their first postseason game against a Super Bowl champion QB are just 1-9 in the past decade in the Wild Card round.
