This year’s NFL playoffs are just moments away from kickoff, with an NFC West battle between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers kicking things off before the Los Angeles Chargers and Jacksonville Jaguars round out the day’s ordeal.

Saturday’s two games present two distinct opportunities for bettors to find the winning bet. And according to BetMGM’s John Ewing, the public thinks these winning bets will have a lot to do with the top players on the favored teams (Niners, Chargers).

Ahead of the Seahawks-49ers, punters will join Christian McCaffrey for 73.5 yards rushing and Elijah Mitchell for 39.5 yards rushing. Since becoming teammates in October, the two defenders have yet to reach those totals in the same game. However, their two props are the biggest bets at BetMGM.

The bettors at BetMGM are betting on Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler to get the job done in the passing game during the playoff game later in the day. With Mike Williams officially out with a back injury, the assumption is that Allen and Ekeler will be even more involved than they have been. If they can’t exceed their receiving totals (6.5 receptions for Allen, 38.5 yards for Ekeler), you might start to wonder where the Chargers’ offensive production will come from against a tough Jaguars defense.
