The NFL's Wild Card Round playoff slate features an exciting showdown between two AFC East rivals in the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills. Josh Allen's Bills enter this one as 4-point favorites over Mac Jones and the Patriots, per FanDuel Sportsbook.

Patriots vs Bills Prop Bets

But there are plenty of other ways to wager on this game. Here are three of the best player prop bets available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

3. Mac Jones - Passing Yards: Under 204.5 (-114)

Buffalo's pass defense is one of the best in the league. The Bills own the NFL's best pass defense by DVOA and surrender an NFL-low 163.0 passing yards per game. Mac Jones hasn't exactly lit it up in his two starts against Buffalo, either. The rookie completed 14-of-32 passes for 145 yards with no TDs and 2 INTs back in Week 16. He only attempted three passes (for 19 yards) when these two met back in Week 13, though that was due to some seriously bad weather. It's tough to back a rookie making his first playoff appearance, on the road, against the league's best pass defense.

2. Devin Singletary - Receiving Yards: Over 13.5 (-110)

Devin Singletary has become a huge part of this Bills' offense over the last few games of the season, averaging 80.8 rushing yards per game over his last four. But that includes a 39-yard performance, which came against New England. And he's not likely to find much more success on the ground this week, either. The Patriots are a rock-solid unit against the run, sitting No. 9 in run defense by DVOA. If Buffalo wants to get Singletary going, it might need to be through the air. We saw that play out when these two met back in Week 16, as Singletary turned 6 targets into 5 catches for 39 yards. He likely only needs one or two receptions to cash this prop and he's set up nicely to do just that.

1. Stefon Diggs - Receiving Yards: Over 68.5 (-110)

Bill Belichick and the Patriots are famous for taking away what their opponent does best. But they just haven't been able to stop Stefon Diggs since he became a Bill. Removing the Week 13 game that was marred by awful weather, Diggs is turning an average of 11.0 targets into 107.3 yards per game in three appearances against the Pats. He never recorded fewer than 85 yards in those three. And even in the awful weather earlier this year, Diggs still put up a respectable 51 yards – accounting for a whopping 35% of Allen's total passing yards. The weather may be a factor again this week, but it shouldn't be nearly as bad as what we saw in Week 13. Diggs feels like a really strong play here.
