Remember, there’s always value in the player props market. By prop shopping around different sportsbooks, I’ve found ways to bet on these superstar signal-callers in Sunday afternoon’s game.

If you’re looking for different ways to bet on NFL player props, I’d recommend PrizePicks. The app allows you to parlay NFL player props for real money in 30 states, including states where online betting is unavailable.

Let’s consider how to bet on Allen and Burrow in the Bengals vs. Bills game.

Bet on Allen, Pass on Burrow

This game should be a shootout.

These are two of the more pass-heavy teams in the league, with Cincinnati and Buffalo ranking second and third in Pass Rate Over Expectation, respectively. Both teams are top 10 in passing plays for and against per game.

We are heading toward a monster passing game, and the total approaching 50 confirms that.

However, there are a few reasons I’m backing Allen but shying away from Burrow.

First, Burrow’s offensive line is cooked. The Bengals have never been strong in that area, but now they’re banged up. Adam Schefter’s recent updates for Jonah Williams and Alex Cappa don't give me much hope.

Second, Allen has more consistently hit his passing yards prop number than Burrow has.

Allen is averaging a whopping 295 yards per game in seven career playoff contests, and he’s tossed for at least 300 yards in four of his last six appearances.

Meanwhile, Burrow has stayed under 250 passing yards in three of five playoff games.

Additionally, Cincinnati's defense has been vulnerable through the air recently. Eight of the last 10 quarterbacks the Bengals faced have cashed on their passing yards prop. Notably, Eli Apple is getting burned on a consistent basis.

The Bills have been a consistent top-10 passing defense all season. And while Skyler Thompson and Mac Jones eclipsed their passing yards prop, neither performed well from an efficiency standpoint.

I’ll be on Josh Allen. Check out the Action Labs Player Props Tool to find the best possible line for Allen’s passing yards total.
