There are only six games remaining before the Super Bowl, and four of them are this weekend. Find out what we prop picks we have in store for you.

There are several very intriguing matchups and NFL Odds coming into Saturday, but I am much more intrigued by some of the prop bets available across the Internet. I have found a couple NFL picks that I am very excited to recommend to you, and hopefully they both cash us winners. Both of them are from Bet365 sportsbook.

TD Scorers

The final game of the wildcard weekend will be the third time the Broncos and Chargers meet up this season, however this one is for the marbles. A big problem for San Diego is the health of their star running back, Ryan Matthews, who has not practiced all week due to the reemergence of an ankle injury. He did not play basically the entire second half last week, and if he cannot play, it makes Danny Woodhead’s touchdown price very intriguing.

At +100, Woodhead could very well see a ton of looks this week if Matthews isn’t able to go, and the chances of him catching a pass or running one into the end zone is very good. The Broncos’ defense is not very good against the run, and even if Woodhead can’t eat up yards, I can almost guarantee he will be in the game in the red zone.

Even though they were ahead so much during the season, the Broncos still gave up a ton of yards and touchdowns to opposing running backs. Denver gave up 19 touchdowns to running backs this season, and if Matthews is not on the field, look for Woodhead to score a touchdown.

My Pick: Danny Woodhead TD Scored (+100)

Total Touchdown Passes

Chargers vs. Broncos

There are several very intriguing lines for this prop this weekend, but the best value I see is once again the final game of the weekend. The Chargers could of course be without their #1 tail back, and that could mean a lot of throwing for Phillip Rivers. This would almost certainly mean a ton of passing touchdowns, and at Bet365, over 4 touchdowns would cash a -135 winner.

With Rivers and Peyton Manning facing off, two to three passing touchdowns from each of them almost seems like a lock. The Broncos and the Chargers’ secondaries are both below average, and while the Chargers have a lack of WRs compared to the Broncos, I could still see a ton of passing TDs.

The Chargers and Broncos were both inside the top ten giving up points to opposing quarterbacks, and while their touchdown totals were around the league average, their yards against were sky-high. Regular season touchdown numbers really can’t portray a full example of how bad both were against the pass. I’m sure both teams gave up plenty of rushing touchdowns from inside five yards that were set up by passing the ball down the field. In this game, neither team is going to run the ball enough to limit the amount of passing TDs. I see both Manning and Rivers getting a ton of yards and both should combine for five or more touchdowns.

My Pick: OVER 4 total touchdowns (-135)
