The holidays are here, and the NFL regular season is winding down. That means it’s time for Saturday betting cards. It’s a huge day on the college side of things for DraftKings Sportsbook bettors, but it always helps to sprinkle in a couple of NFL games. Here’s what jumps out for Saturday on DraftKings Sportsbook.
The Broncos have a solid defense and are at home hosting a team coming off a big win in primetime on a short week. I understand the letdown spot for the Bills, but Denver’s secondary is in shambles when it comes to injuries. Josh Allen has been force-feeding Diggs in the passing game, with over 10 targets per game. Diggs has gone for at least 92 yards in five of his past six games and has hit the over on this number nine times in 13 games as a Bill. The consensus that this isn’t a good spot for the Bills should still be fine for this prop. Keeping the game close, or playing from behind should just lead to more work in the passing game.

Carolina’s run defense has improved, so this isn’t quite the layup the numbers on the season may indicate, but it’s still a very strong spot. With the Packers being home favorites of more than one score, the game script sets up perfectly for the ball to be in Jones’ hands down the stretch. Jones has gone over this mark in three straight, averaging 96.3 yards per game during those contests. I was expecting the number to be a bit higher here, but we have seen Jones bottled up for some pretty poor games. I don’t think that’ll be the case against Carolina. Even if he isn’t there late, we could see a situation like in the Eagles win, where Jones ripped off a late 77-yarder to cash his prop over.
I’m sticking to the props for Saturday’s NFL games as individual plays, but I do like the Packers as a moneyline parlay or teaser piece. I’ll probably be teasing the Packers with the Colts on the NFL side, but if you want something that would pay out on Saturday night, look to this awesome college football card we have.
Ohio State, Clemson and Alabama are all double-digit favorites in their conference title games, so this is as square as it gets. But I do expect all three to win, and it provides casual bettors with a good sweat throughout the entire day. I don’t have this exact parlay myself, but I do have the Buckeyes, Tigers and Crimson Tide on the moneyline in parlays in some capacity. Adding the Packers in there gets us to plus money on this. Teddy Covers might be able to keep this one within eight points, but the Packers aren’t going to give up the No. 1 seed in the NFC on a Saturday night home game. Rodgers and company keep rolling.
