We are coming off the greatest weekend of NFL playoffs … possibly ever? The icing on top was going 3-0 on the player props! The NFL season is down to three games and we find out who is headed to the Super Bowl in Los Angeles this weekend. Below are three player props for the NFL Conference Championship games for this weekend! Let me dive right into the best bets!
NFL Conference Championship Weekend Player Prop Best Bets
Joe Mixon Over 30.5 Receiving Yards
Joe Mixon was incredible this season out of the backfield for the Cincinnati Bengals. Mixon should play a pivotal role in the passing game this weekend. Mixon this season had a total of 314 receiving yards this season. In the two games in the playoffs this season, Mixon has receiving yards of 28 and 51. Further, in the Week 17 matchup against the Chiefs, Mixon had 40 receiving yards for the Bengals. Additionally, the Chiefs defense is allowing an average of 48.79 receiving yards to the running position in all their games this season including the playoffs. I also do like Mixon Over 3.5 receptions but there is a bit of tax to pay at -165 on this prop bet.
Deebo Samuel Longest Reception Over 21.5 Yards
I believe we are getting a bit of a discount on this price for Deebo Samuel. I know he has not gotten over this number in the two playoff games so far but he has done it twice against the Rams this season. He had long receptions of 43 and 40 yards against the Rams. Further, in games in a “dome” Deebo has gone over this number in seven out of eight games this season. We know Deebo is going to be a big part of the offensive game plan for the 49ers and I believe he can break one out this weekend against the Rams. I love this NFL player prop to go Over!

Matthew Stafford Under 282.5 Passing Yards
This is the third game this season versus the 49ers this season and Matthew Stafford has gone under this projection in both games this season. In fact, in the two matchups, Stafford threw for 238 and 243 yards against the 49ers this season. In the first playoff game against the Cardinals, Stafford threw for only 202 passing yards. I would imagine that Kyle Shanahan can scheme up a defensive plan for the 49ers’ defense to limit Stafford in this game. I expect this to be a defensive game and Stafford will stay Under this projection.
