MNF Player Prop Picks for Los Angeles Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals: In Higbee We Trust for the NFC Wild Card Game

We have one more game before Wild Card Weekend is officially over so we obviously have to bet it. When faced with a situation like this, you really want to put your best foot forward. There's no way you want to lose your last bet of the weekend. If that happened, you would have to wait until next weekend to win in the NFL. Nobody wants that. Luckily for us, I found a plus moneyline move that's not only fun, but it also has a zero percent chance of losing at the time of publishing. That's gotta be worth something.

Tyler Higbee 50+ Receiving Yards (+154) (Bet $100 to Win $154)

*Odds Available at FanDuel at Time of Publishing*

Obviously, I'm on FanDuel for this one because of the escalator. If you can't play there, then you can always do the 40.5 at DraftKings for -110. Both BetMGM and Barstool have 40.5 for -115 which is playable. FanDuel actually has 38.5 so if you don't want to go 50+, then just do the 38.5. The point is, we have options people.

Here's the thing about Tyler Higbee, he's pretty good. I know he's been in the league for years and is just now borderline breaking out but these things take time. The important part is he is finally getting things done on the field which makes him bettable.

Over the last four weeks, Higbee has seen at least six targets per game. In the last two, he saw eight and nine. I think Matt Stafford may have noticed he's good. It's not just targets though, Higbee is producing. A little. He hasn't gone under 41 yards in four straight games. In his last two, he's put up at least 55 receiving yards. That's more than 50 people.

The only issue is the fact that the Arizona Cardinals defend the tight end position well. On paper at least. On the season, only three teams gave up fewer receiving yards to the tight end position than Arizona. That looks bad to the naked, untrained eye.

The thing is, the Cardinals really didn't play many teams that utilized their tight ends. When they played George Kittle, he hung 101 yards on them. I'd say Higbee is about 75% of Kittle so if you're familiar with math, that works out to almost 70 yards. We only need 50 here. I think we have this.
