The hot start continues into week 2 where NFL player props have been released by most sportsbooks this week.
Week 2 Anytime Touchdown Prop Bets
Mike Williams To Score A Touchdown +165 (FanDuel)
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of betting against the Cowboys’ horrific defense. Mike Williams had 12 targets last week and this game going to be an incredible shootout. Williams at +165 is a bargain. A Same-game parlay on the Cowboys Chargers game should be fun.
Jalen Hurts To Score A Touchdown +150 (PointsBet)
Allow me to reintroduce myself my name is — Jalen Hurts — (Jay-Z voice). Welcome their new franchise quarterback with open arms. His rushing yardage prop of 50.5 yards is ridiculous but his touchdown scorer odds? We like those.
Rebound Coming In Buffalo After A Disappointing Week 1?
Week 2 Player Prop: Devin Singletary Over 36.5 rushing yards -115 (BetMGM)
Zack Moss was inactive last week but we know that he will be active next week. Typically, this role is a committee and the sportsbooks are preparing for this to be a 50/50 split. However, Singletary really impressed last week with 11 carries for 72 yards while adding 3 catches and 5 targets for 8 yards. The Bills turned the ball over a lot last week so I am expecting Singletary to lead a 60/40 split at least.
Week 2 Player Prop: Josh Allen Over 289.5 Passing Yards -115 (DraftKings)
Keeping up with the Bills, I was pretty impressed with Josh Allen last week. the Steelers defense is expected to be a top 3 unit in football this year. Allen threw for 270 yards and one touchdown. Josh Allen was firing on all cylinders in the preseason and Mac Jones had an impressive debut in week 1 against the Dolphins. Moreover, Allen averaged 320.5 passing yards in two games against the dolphins last year. I think 289.5 is very reasonable this weekend.
Other Week 2 NFL Player Prop Bets
Patrick Mahomes Over 2.5 Passing Touchdowns +120 (BetMGM)
This is probably my favorite prop bet of the weekend. Mahomes and the Chiefs absolutely own the Ravens and their secondary is banged up. Furthermore, the Chiefs eat up man coverage that the Ravens love to run. Mahomes over 2.5 seems like a great spot.
Tyrod Taylor Over 22.5 Rushing Yards -135 (PointsBet)
This line was inexplicably at 16.5 last week and I will take it again. The Browns’ defensive line is fantastic and they will have Taylor running around in circles. As we predicted last week, Taylor will beat this line with one play. He broke one for 28 last week and I expect him to blow past this rushing line.
