USFantasy keeps adding new things to its already big menu of fantasy games but this week they are also offering a couple fantasy props.
First up in the NFL this week, they are offering Prop No. 8 Highest Scoring Team, there are seven options (Arizona, Atlanta, New England, New Orleans, Oakland, Pittsburgh, Seattle). Betting choices are WIN, PLACE or EXACTA. Could be an interesting one keep an eye on the odds for Seattle and Pittsburgh.
Also on the betting board, Prop No. 12 Carolina vs. Seattle Winning Margin, also with seven options (Carolina by 1-6 points, Carolina by 7-13 points, Carolina by 14 or more, Seattle by 1-6 points, Seattle by 7-13 points, Seattle by 14-20 points and finally Seattle by 21 or more). WIN betting is the betting choice for this prop.
USFantasy also released its first golf tournament of the year which started this past Thursday at the Hero World Challenge. Dustin Johnson was the current leader at press time at 9-1. Tiger Woods went off as the 7-5 favorite.
Now let’s dive into the NFL picks for this week:
Prop No. 1 Ben Roethlisberger, QB, PIT; Russell Wilson, QB, SEA; Tyrod Taylor, QB, BUF, Aaron Rodgers, QB, GB (EXACTA BOX): With the Packers coming off a big Monday night win over Philly, let’s take a shot on Rodgers having back-to-back nice games. Also I love the Steelers this week so I could see Big Ben going bananas. Wilson, Taylor both have sneaky matchups where they could each make some noise scoring TDs.
Prop No. 2 Antonio Brown, WR, PIT (99-1) and Travis Kelce, TE, KC (8-1): Matchups are one of the biggest factors in fantasy and here it’s a matchup thing. Brown should be the big breadwinner against the G-Men in a must win game for Pittsburgh. While Kelce, I just like to cut up the Atlanta D, who aren’t good at defending the tight end.
Prop No. 3 LeSean McCoy, RB, BUF (99-1): If Taylor isn’t scoring the TDs then this guy should be the Buffalo touchdown maker. Take him across the board and hope for some nice prices.
Prop No. 8 Highest Scoring Team: Pittsburgh and Seattle (both 99-1): While they won’t go off at that if you see either one above double digits take a shot, if not stay away.
Prop No. 11 Carolina vs. Seattle Winning Margin: Seattle by 14 to 20 and Seattle by 21 or more: If these are in the 15-1 or higher range it’s a play.
