The Buffalo Bills (14-3) host the Baltimore Ravens (12-5) on Saturday, Jan. 16 in the NFL playoffs divisional round. Kickoff is at 8:15 p.m. ET. The NFL playoff odds show the Bills as a 2.5-point favorite over the Ravens at FanDuel Sportsbook with a total of 49.5.

Watch the weather leading into the game as freezing temperatures near 30 degrees with gusting winds from 15-25 MPH could play a factor in the outcome and player performances.

Bettors that like more action or betting opportunities beyond the spread, total or moneyline can get a little more creative with your wagering this weekend. FanDuel Sportsbook offers many NFL prop bets. Here are three of the best prop bets for Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs.

1. Receiving Yards: Under 93.5 (-110)

Stefon Diggs led the NFL in receptions (127) and receiving yards (1,535) in 2020. He's outperformed his prop numbers most weeks including in last week's Wild Card win over the Colts with 128 receiving yards. In four of the Bills last five games Diggs has reached at least 128 receiving yards. But just as his quarterback Josh Allen may find the going more difficult against the Ravens, so too will Diggs going up against one of the best cornerbacks in Marcus Peters. The two time All-Pro allowed just 29 receiving yards on five targets in last weeks win over the Titans. Jimmy Smith is also a strong, versatile cornerback who missed some games the last two months but was back last week. The Bills now have three other healthy and solid receivers. The windy weather is another road block, and the Ravens pass defense allowed just 217 passing yards per game this season - sixth best in the NFL. The numbers keep rising, but this week should be much tougher for Diggs to approach 100 receiving yards.

2. First Reception: Under 10.5 Yards (-115)

Despite Diggs' league high receiving yards and receptions, he ranks outside the top 60 players in average yards per catch (12.7). Let's look for QB Josh Allen to target him on a short route early to get him going. Either Ravens cornerback will be aggressive in coverage against Diggs, and CB Jimmy Smith has allowed less than 5.0 yards per target and 52% catch rate since the start of last season. Yards and catches should be tougher to come by against the Ravens top-tier secondary.

3. Longest Reception - Over 27.5 (-112)

Diggs might not be as consistent as he normally would be in this game, but he's still among the league's most explosive wideouts. He's had a reception of at least 36 yards in three of his last five appearances, including two games with receptions of 50-plus yards in that time. Even if Baltimore keeps Diggs in check for the most part, it's tough to see the Ravens limiting him throughout the entire game.
