Top Week 9 Prop Bets for NFL

Stefon Diggs Over 72.5 Rec Yards (-115)

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

Seattle’s secondary has been lit up all season long. And while the Buffalo passing attack has been quiet of-late, this is a get-right game. Diggs would have surpassed 72.5 receiving yards in 5-of-8 games this season, including going for 92 last week against the Patriots.

He also would have hit the over in three of his past five games. Seattle has given up at least 80 receiving yards to 12 different wide receivers in eight games played in 2020. Diggs will have no problem hitting this over at home.

Steelers score a defensive TD against Dallas (+220)

This one is simple. The Cowboys will start either Garrett Gilbert or Cooper Rush at quarterback this week. Their fourth different starting quarterback of the year.

Considering Dallas is playing Pittsburgh, who employs one of the league’s most opportunistic and smothering defense, the odds of the Steelers taking a turnover to the house is substantial. For the same reason, I would not mind throwing a few bucks on the Steelers recording a safety against Dallas this week. That prop pays (+900).

Terry McLaurin Over 75 receiving yards (-106)

Terry McLaurin has played in two career games against the Giants. In both matchups, including their meeting back in Week 6, the second-year wideout has had at least seven receptions for 74 yards.

While he came up one hard shy of the 75-yard total a few weeks back, he did manage 86 yards back in 2019. McLaurin has surpassed the 75-yard total in 4-of-7 games this season, including two games with at least 118 yards.
