Darren Waller Over 4.5 Receptions (-161, Caesars)

The Raiders have missed Darren Waller immensely, but not anyone more than Derek Carr, as he may shake the rust off him against the tight end inept Bengals defense. Waller has averaged five catches and 8.45 targets per game while projecting for 5.79 catches on 8.79 targets against the Bengals, extending to OddsShopper‘s 68% expected win rate and 9% return on investment for the over. Cincinnati has surrendered 8.72 catches per game to opposing tight ends and rank 24th in defensive pass DVOA against the tight end position. Waller had a craggy return to action against the Chargers in Week 18 securing just two receptions on nine targets, while a telegraph of Carr’s true intentions. Waller’s volume was force fed on the heels of hiatus and forecasts nothing short of promising against a Bengals team who allowed the league’s most yards and receptions to tight ends through the past eight weeks. The juice is an elevated ask but the writing on the wall leans over with Waller’s catch total.

Joe Mixon Over 74.5 Yards Rushing (-114, FanDuel )

Joe Mixon shocked the world with this season’s resume and a middling rush total against Las Vegas forecasts as a repeat affair on Wild Card Saturday football. Mixon averaged 75.3 yards per game and projects for 99.35 yards against the Raiders, exuding an OddsShopper 67% expected win rate and 27% return on investment for the over. Las Vegas has allowed 94.82 yards per game to opposing running backs while ranking 26th in rush defense by PFF. Mixon blowtorched the Raiders in a 123-yard, two-touchdown Week 11 drubbing and has averaged a consistent 74.33 yards following that performance. The juice just a hair up from the usual dime, grab the over on Mixon’s yards against Vegas.
