Posted: Jan 20, 2023Last updated: Jan 20, 2023

The New York Giants are two wins away from the Super Bowl largely due to Saquon Barkley‘s playmaking.

But Barkley will likely need to do even more if the Giants are going to upset the division-rival Philadelphia Eagles, who own the NFC’s No. 1 seed.

Here’s a look at some Saquon Barkley prop bets to consider for Saturday’s divisional-round contest.

All NFL Divisional Round odds used in these props are current as of Friday, Jan. 20, at 2 p.m. ET.

Saquon Barkley Rushing Attempts Prop

Saquon Barkley: Over 15.5 Rush Attempts (-123) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Barkley has only recorded 16-plus rushing attempts twice in the past eight games and had just nine against the Vikings on Sunday.

But the Eagles have a dynamic secondary, and the Giants have been one of the NFL’s leading rushing teams all season, plus you can bet the Giants will want to try to keep Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts on the sideline.

New York averaged 148.2 rushing yards per game, and opponents could run against the Eagles D (121.6 yards allowed per game, tied for 16th). The Giants should try to run Barkley early and often Saturday.

Saquon Barkley Scrimmage Yards Prop

Saquon Barkley: Under 102.5 Total Yards (-115) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Barkley and the Giants should expect a lot of eight-man fronts since the Eagles aren’t likely to let the superstar running back beat them. Plus, Philadelphia gave up the fewest passing yards per game (179.8) in the NFL.

Giants quarterback Daniel Jones should have the opportunity to keep the ball in the run-pass option and pick up yards in space. But even though New York may want to establish the run, Barkley isn’t likely to have too far to go.

He had just 48 yards from scrimmage in the teams’ first meeting on Dec. 11.
