NFL Player Prop Bets: Thanksgiving Thursday
NFL Player Prop Bets – Thanksgiving Thursday: We’re thankful to have football on Thanksgiving Thursday, as one game has been lost due to COVID-19 precautions. Luckily, we’ve still got the Texans vs Lions and Washington vs Dallas to wet our NFL whistle. We’ve got a 6-pack of NFL Prop Bets to go along with your holiday festivities.
Houston Texans vs Detroit Lions
Deshaun Watson Rushing Yards Over
Deshaun Watson is 2nd on his team in rushing yards with 269. He averages 26.9 rushing yards per game and has 2 rushing touchdowns on the season. Over his last 4 games, he has rushed for at least 36 yards in each of those games. Their star running back David Johnson is out with injury and Watson has had to pick up some slack in the run game. Considering how he has been rushing the last few games compared to his season average, there should be good value on this to go over the number.
Will Fuller Receptions Over
Will Fuller V leads his team in receiving yards with 708, receptions with 47, and is 2nd on his team in targets with 68. He averages 70.8 receiving yards per game and has 6 touchdowns on the season. In his last 3 games, he has had 5 or more receptions in each along with 8 targets each in his last 2 games. Fuller is only the 2nd most targeted player on his team but has the most receptions. This is a player with reliable hands and there should be some value on his over for receptions.
Marvin Jones Jr Anytime Touchdown
Marvin Jones Jr leads his team in receiving yards with 455, and is 2nd on his team in targets with 57 and receptions with 37. He averages 45.5 receiving yards per game and has 5 touchdowns this season. In his last 5 games, he has received for more than 40 yards in each with 4 touchdowns in his last 4 games. He is coming off a game where he did not get in the endzone but expect him to bounce back here. There is good value on him getting a touchdown in this one.
Washington Football Team vs Dallas Cowboys
Terry McLaurin Receiving Yards Over
Terry McLaurin leads his team in receiving yards with 871, targets with 93, and receptions with 62. He averages 87.1 receiving yards per game with 3 touchdowns on the season. He has almost 20 more receptions, almost 30 more targets, and over 400 more yards than the 2nd receiver on his team. In his last 4 games, he has received for more than 80 yards in each game with no game having less than 7 targets. He is clearly a favorite in this offense, an offense that does not have much going for them. If they are going to move the ball on Thursday it will be through McLaurin. So, there is good value on his over here.
Ezekiel Elliot Rushing Yards Over
Ezekiel Elliot leads his team in rushing yards with 675. He averages 67.5 rushing yards per game with 5 touchdowns this season. In his last 4 games, he has been getting more carries each game along with his rushing yards increasing in each. He is coming off of a game where he rushed for over 100 yards. Washington allows just over 120 rushing yards per game so Elliot should have no problem running the ball in this one. Expect him to keep up his recent form with another solid outing, giving some good value on his over for rushing.
Amari Cooper Receptions Over
Amari Cooper leads his team in receiving yards with 736, targets with 99, and receptions with 65. He averages 73.6 receiving yards per game and has 2 touchdowns this season. He is a very trusted target on this team as he has almost 20 more targets and receptions than the 2nd receiver on the team and has over 100 more yards. Over his last 5 games, he has received for more than 60 yards in each with at least 5 or more receptions in each of those games except for one. His hands are reliable and that gives some value on his over for receptions in this one.
