Best prop bets and analysis for Marquez Valdes-Scantling in the NFC Championship

We breakdown the NFC Championship game prop bets for Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

Will the Packers and Bucs hit the over?

Davante Adams and the Green Bay Packers host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship game on Sunday at Lambeau Field. Adams has a slew of prop bets to consider for this matchup over at DraftKings Sporstbook. We’ll take an in-depth look at his props for receptions, yardage and touchdowns below.

Receiving yards prop: O/U 29.5 (-112)

In 16 games played this season, Valdes-Scantling has gone over 29.5 receiving yards, ten times. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ defense rank has allowed 236 yards to opposing wide receivers, which is fifth-worst in the NFL.

Pick: Yes

Last week, the 6-foot-4 wide out was targeted early and often by Aaron Rodgers. Valdes-Scantling recorded four receptions (eight targets) for 33 yards against the Rams. In the Packers’ first meeting against the Bucs, MVS produced three receptions (five targets) for 32 yards.

With Adams likely commanding a ton of attention from the Buccaneers’ secondary, MVS or Allen Lazard could have a few big plays in the NFC title game.

Touchdown prop: Anytime (+285), First/Last (+2000)

This season, Marquez Valdes-Scantling had 33 receptions (63 targets) for 690 yards and six touchdowns. On Sunday, he’ll be going up against a Bucs’ defense that has given up 17 touchdowns to opposing wide receivers.

Pick: Anytime

In the NFC Divisional round against the Rams, the 26-year-old almost came close to scoring a touchdown but it was all for naught. However, it’s always this weekend for MVS to find the inside. The former South Florida wide out is averaging 20.6 yards per catch, which means he can stretch the field for a big play.
