Okay football betting buffs…with the start of the 2020 NFL regular season getting closer by the day, now is a great time to take a look at some of the more value-packed player props odds wager on the board. To that end, I’ve identified three, season-long player props odds wagers that are not only offering a ton of value, but have the look of complete ‘lock’ selections in my estimation. Now, let’s find out which players are in the spotlight, along with their NFL odds!
NFL Player Props Odds Picks – Trio of Wagers looks Like Lock Selections
Dak Prescott – Regular Season Passing TDs
After throwing 23 touchdown passes as a rookie in 2016 and following that up with consecutive 22-TD pass campaigns in 2017 and 2018, Prescott tossed 30 TD passes last season while passing for a career-high 4,902 yards. With Dallas getting arguably the steal of the draft on former Oklahoma star wide receiver CeeDee Lamb to go opposite Pro Bowl wideout Amari Cooper, I believe this wager is one of the most value-packed selections on the board. Keep it simple as there is no way outside of injury, that Prescott doesn’t throw at least 30 TD passes for the season straight season in 2020.
Pick: Over 27.5 TD Passes
Le’Veon Bell – Regular Season Rushing Yards
The former Steelers Pro Bowler rushed for at least 1,268 yards in his final two seasons in Pittsburgh in 2016 and 2017 before sitting out the entire 2018 season in a contract dispute. After signing with the Jets prior to last season, head coach Adam Gase foolishly failed to utilize Bell’s standout dual-threat skill-set by giving him just 245 carries as he averaged a career-low 52.6 rushing yards per contest. Still, I don’t believe there’s any way that Bell does not rush for at least 1,000 yards in 2020 – of Gase wants to keep his job. This one’s as easy as pie. Play the Over.
Pick: Over 850.5 Rushing Yards
DeAndre Hopkins – Regular Season Receiving Yards
Houston head coach Bill O’Brien pulled the trigger on one of the most foolish transactions in recent memory by trading perennial Pro Bowl wideout DeAndre Hopkins to Arizona for aging running back David Johnson. Now, Hopkins joins young stud quarterback Kyler Murray and future Hall of Fame wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald in what should be one of the league’s most dangerous passing attacks. Hopkins put up 1,165 receiving yards last season and has topped this total in three straight seasons and five of the last six seasons overall. Call me crazy, but I’m thinking Hopkins is an absolute lock to reach 1,200 receiving yards in 2020.
Pick: Over 1,125.5 Receiving Yards
