It’s win-or-go-home season for football teams, which means it’s the most wonderful time of the year for sports bettors.
The NFL playoffs are where the best teams and players come out to shine and the action heating up, it’s also the most fun time to bet on the NFL.
But there’s more to NFL betting than just moneyline and against-the-spread picks. There are a variety of props for players to choose from.
Today, we’re looking at prop bets involving Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper.

Amari Cooper Wild Card Prop Bets
Best Bet: Amari Cooper Under 57.5 Receiving Yards (-112) @ BetRivers

Generally, when Cooper has huge games, Dallas wins.
But when Cooper falls short, so too do the Cowboys.
Dallas may get forced into a pass-heavy game script in this one due to the 49ers’ stout run defense and the Cowboys’ reluctance to commit to running the ball, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Cooper is poised to break out on Sunday.
Cooper had fewer than 60 receiving yards in nine of his 15 games this season, including three of the five he suited up for against playoff teams.

Dallas will likely need to rely on Cooper, fellow receiver CeeDee Lamb, and tight end Dalton Schultz more since No. 3 receiver Michael Gallup tore his ACL in Week 17, but San Francisco is stingy against the pass too.
The 49ers surrendered over 250 passing yards in just five of their 17 games this season and have only given up an average of 206 yards through the air over their past nine, a run in which they went 7-2.
That all spells trouble for bettors interested in taking the over for Dallas receivers.
