Top NFL Week 8 Player Prop Bets

A.J. Brown To Get 60+ Receiving Yards and Tennessee Titans Win
(+120)

I like the Titans to win this game outright, but I wanted to find the perfect prop to stack it with. That perfect prop is A.J. Brown’s receiving yards total.

[esi cache="public" adrotate group="1" ttl="60"]

Brown has gone over 60 receiving yards in 2-of-4 games this season, including two of his past three since returning from his knee injury.

Meanwhile, the Bengals have allowed eight different wideouts to surpass Brown’s 60-yard total in eight games played. Brown has drawn at least 7 targets in all four of the games he’s played, which suggests the opportunity will be three for the Titans’ top wideout to hit this over in a favorable matchup. -Anthony Cervino


Aaron Rodgers To Get 300+ Passing Yards (+120)

Rodgers has had at least 300 passing yards twice in six games this season, including the Week 1 contest with the Vikings. He’s fallen exactly 17 yards short of this number twice as well in 2020.

With the Vikings’ top four CBs all either out or listed on the team’s injury report this week, Rodgers should do enough to rack up his third 300-yard passing game of the season. -Paul Shapiro


Philip Rivers Over 276.5 Passing Yards (-115)

I expect the Colts to lean on Rivers Sunday, just like they did against Cincinnati in Week 6. Rivers went 29-for-44 for 371 yards and 3 TDs in that contest.

He faces a Lions D that has allowed an average of 290.5 passing yards in its two games since the Week 5 bye. Detroit’s defensive unit has also allowed just 95 total rushing yards in those two games, pointing even more to Rivers having to pick up the slack.

The QB has also topped this passing-yards total in both games he’s thrown the ball at least 33 times. -PS

Darrell Henderson Over 60.5 rushing yards (-115)

While Malcolm Brown is coming off a game in which he carried the ball 10 times for 57 yards and a touchdown, it was his first game with double-digit carries since Week 2.

Meanwhile, Darrell Henderson has drawn at least 14 carries in four of his past five games, proving he is the top running back on the Rams’ depth chart.

In 4-of-6 games since Week 2, Henderson has had at least 63 yards on the ground and would have gone over the 60.5-yard total in all four outings. The Dolphins are allowing the 15th-most rushing yards per game (124.2) in the NFL. -AC


Justin Jefferson Over 63.5 receiving yards (-115)

While Justin Jefferson only compiled a 2/26/0 line on 3 targets back in the season opener against the Packers, the standout rookie wideout has since taken off.

In three of his past four games since Week 2, Jefferson has gone for at least 103 receiving yards and has drawn at least 5 targets in all four of those games.

In a game in which the Vikings should trail and be forced to throw the football, Jefferson will have the opportunity to easily surpass the 63.5-yard total, especially if Kirk Cousins looks for the rookie over the top to exploit his big-play ability. Jefferson is expected to draw Josh Jackson in coverage, who is currently ranked as the 93rd best cornerback at PlayerProfiler. -AC

Saints-Bears: Will there be a defensive touchdown? Yes (+235)

These are prop bets, so let’s have some fun with it. As weather, specifically wind gusts of up to 20 mph, should play a factor in Sunday’s Saints-Bears game, why not take a plus-money prop bet on BOTH defenses?

Drew Brees has played in 129 outdoor games in his career and has 110 interceptions in those contests. Nick Foles 6 six picks in five games this season. And that doesn’t take into account that a fumble could be returned for a TD too. Both of these defenses also have 1 touchdown in 2020. The +235 odds are simply too good for me to pass up here. -PS
