For NFL Wild Card Weekend, we'll hit you with three ways that you can cash in big from our NFL writer, Matt O'Leary.

NFL Wild Card Weekend 3 Ways to Win Big

The NFL playoffs are here, and we're going to be treated to wall-to-wall football this weekend. You have the Las Vegas Raiders vs Cincinnati Bengals to get us started on Saturday, followed by the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots at night. Then on Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers and San Francisco 49ers, and Dallas Cowboys. Heck, we even get a Monday game too this year with the Arizona Cardinals vs the Los Angeles Rams!

So obviously, we're going to try to monetize this weekend. Here are three plays that you can use to help you win big over the weekend.

Most Passing Yards: Patrick Mahomes +650

Sure, you can go with the chalk answer of Tom Brady, he'll be a popular pick this weekend but we don't like popular picks here. Maybe the Bucs get up big and stop throwing the ball, have we taken that into consideration? Also, Matthew Stafford and Joe Burrow have better odds at +600 but the Arizona Cardinals and Las Vegas Raiders have been pretty good at limiting opponents passing yards against so I'm not sold on those two either. I'm all over Pat Mahomes though for this.

I mean, did you hear Ben Roethlisberger's comments? The Steelers have no business being in this game!

The scary thing is he's right! They don't have a chance but you can't say that Ben come on now. With Josh Allen and Tom Brady potentially playing in inclement weather, it's probably a two-man race between Mahomes and Burrow. Give me the quarterback who has been there and done that before.

3 Team Parlay: Patriots +7.5, Cardinals +7.5, 49ers +7.5 (+247)

I don't like to toss around the there's no way this can lose thing too often but there's no way this loses right? The Patriots and the Bills are playing a game in single-digit temperatures on Saturday night. Do you think either of those teams are going to put up a ton of points? With those two defenses it should, keyword being should, be a low-scoring, slow-paced, close game.

As for the Cardinals and Rams game, both of these teams have been fairly fraudulent down the stretch. I don't trust either of them. What I do know though is that it should be a high-scoring close game and I could see either team winning this one.

Lastly, the 49ers. Would anyone be shocked if Dallas went one and done in the playoffs? I mean they make a habit of it just about every single year. The 49ers have come on strong and even if they can't outright win the game, it should be a one-score game. All of these games project to be close.

TD Scorer Parlay: Deebo Samuel + Travis Kelce + Cooper Kupp Anytime TD scorer (+450)

Hitting on one touchdown scorer is a tough thing to do but three in a parlay must be impossible. Well, not exactly. Starting with Deebo Samuel, he's been a machine all year long for the 49ers. With 14 touchdowns on the season in 16 games, he's nearly at a touchdown per game pace. The best part? He can get in on the ground or through the air. The Cowboys defense has struggled against the run while clearly, San Fran is a run dominant team. Somehow, someway, expect Deebo to find the endzone.

As for Travis Kelce, he's been solid this season with nine touchdowns in 16 games and over 1,100 receiving yards for the fourth year in a row. Come playoff time, Kelce is a different breed. In his last six games in the postseason, he has seven touchdowns. The Patrick Mahomes to Travis Kelce is a favorite connection and if the Chiefs score a lot of points, which they should, I don't see how he doesn't find his way in at least one.

The easiest of them all is Cooper Kupp though. He led the league with 16 receiving touchdowns and 1,947 receiving yards on the season. He has a touchdown in five of his last six games and is Matthew Stafford's favorite target. My thought here is that both the Cardinals and the Rams should put up points in this one and based on what we saw in the regular season, the offense will run through Kupp.
