We started Week 8 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hosting the Baltimore Ravens and now head into the weekend slate.
Below are four prop bets to make to get plenty of value and add more money to your bankroll.
Let’s take a look.
The Panthers looked great after a 21-3 win over the Buccaneers. While their offense may be somewhat of a fluke and is unlikely to continue, their defense has been rock solid all season long.
Last week on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Falcons couldn’t do anything offensively. However, even when they were down in the game, they didn’t let Mariota throw with 13 total attempts.
Mariota has thrown a touchdown in every game except for Week 1 and 4. Still, at +180 against a league-average coverage unit in the Panthers that has some solid players in C.J. Henderson and Donte Jackson, Mariota’s continued limited passing approach will hurt him in getting over this 0.5 passing touchdown line.
The Cowboys are a 9.5-point home favorite over the Bears, even with them scoring nearly 40 against the New England Patriots on the road.
However, they take on a Cowboys defense this week that allows the fourth-fewest passing yards and just about 120 rushing yards per game.
Of course, against the Bears, the focus will be the run game which their front seven should be able to snuff out quite quickly.
This is lining up to be a bad day at the office for Bears quarterback Justin Fields who may be in danger of a few turnovers. This is setting up to be a Cowboys shellacking.
While the Broncos’ offense is nowhere to be found, their defense is phenomenal against the pass, allowing just 173 yards per game.
The Jaguars’ offense has been getting some things done lately, but this could be a brick wall for quarterback Trevor Lawrence.
Their No. 1 target is Kirk, who plays primarily out of the slot and has plenty of snaps outside in two wide receiver sets.
Against this Broncos pass rush, we may see a few more two-wide receiver sets. When that happens, Kirk will be greeted by Broncos corner Patrick Surtain with safeties Justin Simmons and Kareem Jackson over the top.
Kirk has been a bright spot lately, but he will have a rough go of it this week.
Going up against the Titans, Texans quarterback Davis Mills is coming off a season-high in passing yards in a game at 302 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
The Titans' defense is atrocious against the pass, allowing over 277 yards per game.
Now, there is something to consider here: Wide receiver Brandin Cooks is getting less playing time in the event of a potential trade, but even if that’s the case, Cooks has yet to beat his Week 1 total of 82 yards.
Mills spreads the ball around quite well, and he should have some success at home against this leaky Titans pass defense.
