NFL Prop Bets Week 3: Best NFL Player Props

NFL Prop Bets Week 3

We’re through Week 2 of the NFL season, and it was a rough one injury-wise. The headline injury was, sadly, Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb, who suffered perhaps one of the most gruesome knee injuries you’ll see on an NFL field, similar to the one he suffered as a true freshman with the Georgia Bulldogs. 

Now, we look ahead to Week 3 to evaluate some early-in-the-week prop bets, all with “+” value. 

Find our best bets below. 

San Francisco 49ers vs New York Giants

Pick: Daniel Jones Over 1.5 Passing TDs (+175) at DraftKings

After getting annihilated in Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys, losing 40-0, the Giants came back in Week 2, defeating the Arizona Cardinals on the road 31-28 after being down 20-0. 

To end the game, Jones had 321 passing yards, two touchdowns, one interception, and one rushing touchdown. 

Against the 49ers, Jones will face another stout defense, especially in the front seven. They’ll be able to create pressure and make things difficult for the Giants offense. 

While the Giants don’t have the most electric receivers, they have some options, including tight-end Darren Waller. 

The Giants should trail in this game throughout. With them trailing from behind, we will likely see plenty of passing from Jones here again, which could lead to a couple of passing touchdowns in garbage time. At +175, it’s worth a wager.

San Francisco 49ers vs New York Giants

Pick: Brock Purdy Under 2.5 Rush Attempts (+124) at DraftKings

Sticking with this Thursday Night Football matchup, we’re taking the +124 value and Purdy going under on rush attempts at 2.5. 

Through the first two weeks of the season, Purdy is averaging three carries per game and did score a short-yardage touchdown against the Rams in Week 2. 

The Giants had one rush attempt against them from Dak Prescott in Week 1 and six from Josh Dobbs against the Cardinals. 

The flow of the game against the Cowboys is more likely to happen here than a shootout like it was against the Cardinals. 

We could see some goal line or quarterback sneak attempts from Purdy, but it’s unlikely he’ll need to get out and run against this Giants defense that’s only created 21 pressures on opposing quarterbacks through two games.

Washington Commanders vs Buffalo Bills

Pick: Commanders To Score First (+140) at Caesars

The Buffalo Bills are on the road against the Washington Commanders, and this has the makings of a sneaky test for the Bills defense. In Week 2, hosting the Las Vegas Raiders, the Bills crushed them 38-10, but the Raiders scored the first touchdown after a 16-yard pass from Jimmy Garoppolo to Davante Adams. 

Against the Commanders, this Bills secondary, which allows 76.9% of targets to be caught and two touchdowns, will face a Sam Howell-led offense with multiple playmakers. 

Howell isn’t bombing the ball downfield, but 27.1% of his attempts are passed 10-19 yards downfield, and he has an adjusted completion rate of 83.3% and a regular completion percentage of 65.7%. 

He threw for 299 and two touchdowns against a difficult Denver Broncos defense on the road, and he could test this Bills defense.

Look for them to come out firing and get the game's first score.
