Here’s a special edition of Week 15 NFL player props! Due to the unfortunate surge of COVID-19 cases across the league, the NFL postponed two games to Tuesday night. With that, we get our fifth day of NFL games in six days, so we’ll offer some plays on tonight’s player props and anytime touchdown scorers.
Sunday player props were arguably our best week of the season so far. We went 6-1 on our Sunday player prop bets for a 4.16 unit profit. Furthermore, with our Week 15 touchdown scorer props Sunday, we went just 1-3 but profited 5 units thanks to Zach Wilson’s QB sneak cashing at +800. The 9.16 units of total profit make last week one of the best we have had all year!
This Tuesday special edition of player props and anytime touchdown scorers comes with a few unknowns. There is uncertainty as to who will actually play this week, so I am mitigating that risk by taking players expected to play. Please check your sportsbook’s rules before placing a bet on a player at risk of being inactive.
All betting lines listed below were available at the time of this writing Tuesday afternoon.
As always, follow the advice of Furio from The Sopranos …. “Bet with your head, not over it”
Tuesday Night NFL TD Scorer Props
Terry McLaurin Anytime Touchdown Scorer +260 (FanDuel)
The number here is outrageously wide! While Terry McLaurin has been struggling, he is still the best player on the Washington offense. McLaurin faces a beatable secondary Eagles secondary and should be a serious part of Taylor Heinicke’s game plan. McLaurin went catchless against the Cowboys last week, but the Football Team should never let that happen again.
D.K. Metcalf Anytime Touchdown Scorer +135 (FanDuel)
Another top-tier talent receiver who has been underachieving of late. Tyler Lockett still hasn’t been taken off of the COVID-19/Reserve list. This would point to him not playing and would leave Metcalf as one of the lone targets for Russell Wilson to lean on Tuesday. Wilson looked excellent throwing the deep ball last week to Lockett and should steer those looks in Metcalf’s direction against the Rams
Tuesday NFL Player Props
Jalen Hurts Over 44.4 Rushing Yards -110 (DraftKings) | Under 195.5 Passing Yards -115 (PointsBet)
Gardner Minshew should be the Eagles quarterback going forward. Don’t believe me? Let’s look at the stats…
Jalen Hurts Recent Game Log (last 5 games)
11/28 @ NYG: 129 passing yards 77 yards rushing
11/21 vs. NO: 147 passing yards 69 yards rushing (3 rushing TDs)
11/14 @ DEN: 178 passing yards 55 yards rushing
11/7 vs. LAC: 162 passing yards 62 yards rushing
10/31 @ DET: 103 passing yards 71 yards rushing
Hurts had a bye week to get healthy and should be running the ball plenty. He has not eclipsed 200 yards passing since October and has only done so in four out of 12 games played.
DeVonta Smith Under 49.5 Receiving Yards -115 (BetMGM)
Hurts’ inability to pass the ball to the outside has badly affected Smith’s ability to produce. In the beginning of the season, Smith looked like a rookie of the year candidate. Since Week 4, his target share has plummeted, and his production hasn’t been what it was. He had under 30 yards receiving in his last two games — against the Jets and Giants — two of the worst teams in the NFL.
