NFL Conference Championship betting specials: Most passing and rushing yards of the weekend

Yardbarker

As the NFL season winds down, sportsbooks tend to get creative with how many betting markets they offer you. Now, you could bet on things like most passing yards of the weekend on any Sunday this year, but the market is a bit easier to swallow when we have just four choices.

Let’s take a quick scan through the board to see if we can find us any value for these two niche markets.

Odds for Most Passing Yards of the Weekend

  • Brock Purdy (+140)
  • Jared Goff (+200)
  • Patrick Mahomes (+300)
  • Lamar Jackson (+800)

Sportsbooks definitely expect more of a passing showdown in the NFC Championship Game, an assessment we’d agree with. Both secondaries are a bit more vulnerable to opposing success, while the AFC teams both shine at shutting down the pass.

Purdy is the logical choice to lead the weekend in passing at +140. It may not be flashy or exciting, but he’s got the highest over/under of the weekend, and the Lions have allowed Baker Mayfield to throw for 349 and Matthew Stafford to finish with 367 yards.

Going back a bit further, Detroit had allowed three straight QBs from Weeks 16-18 to go for 345+ yards. Purdy is the clear option for a big day Sunday, and +140, it’s worth a bet. 

Best bet: Purdy (+140)
