For the first time in NFL history, a playoff game has been scheduled for Monday Night Football. Wouldn’t you know it, it’s the Arizona Cardinals facing their division nemesis, the Los Angeles Rams.
Monday’s contest is more than just a bird fighting a horned mammal. It’s the culmination of the NFL’s Wild Card Weekend, and another chance to bet the Cardinals this season.
Most sportsbooks list the Rams as 4-point favorites, but let’s look at Prop Bets for the Monday Night NFL Wild Card game between the Cardinals and Rams.
BetMGM Arizona Props
Game Will Go Into Overtime: Yes (+900)
Here’s a fun bet that keeps you doing the math on the score. What are the chances? Playoff games are often played a little tight, which means closer scores and fewer points. The Rams are coming off an OT loss to the 49ers. Maybe two in a row?
Race To Score 20 Points: Cardinals (+170)
The Cardinals had a lead in 15 of 17 games, and they were the first to score 20 points in 13 games. I like this one to tip to Arizona, and while the odds are not long, it’s a fun payoff if it hits.

Caesars Arizona Prop
Rams Win by 1-6 Points (+300)
This is one of the Caesars Odds Boost specials for the Monday Night NFL Wild Card Game. It has value if you think the Cardinals will cover but not win. It even has value if the Rams win by exactly six points.
FanDuel Arizona Props
Rams QB Matthew Stafford To Score a Touchdown (+750)
It seems like the odds are way too long on this event. Sure, Stafford only has 25 yards rushing in three career playoff games, but he did score one TD with his feet in his Detroit days. Stafford plays with intensity, and if he’s inside the 3-yard line and he sniffs the goal line, he won’t hesitate to grind his way into the end zone.
Cardinals TE Antoine Wesley To Score a Touchdown (+290)
The rookie WR was only targeted 32 times this season, but he grabbed three TDs from QB Kyler Murray. All of them were in the last three games of the regular season. At +290, he’s a nice flyer.
DraftKings Arizona Prop
Rams DE Aaron Donald to Record 2+ Sacks and a Forced Fumble (+300)
As Arizona head coach Kliff Kingsbury told the media this week, Rams DE Aaron Donald “wrecked the entire game” the last time the Cardinals played LA. The Rams won that game 30-23 back in mid-December, with Donald recording a season-high three sacks of a rattled Murray.
