Thursday Night Football Prop Bets – Five Ways to Get Paid
1. Houston Texans Over 2.5 Sacks (-115)
Normally I would be all over the Game over for sacks but the Dolphins have been a dreadful getting to the QB 11 times in 7 games. Meanwhile, I do like the chances of this HOU D(8th in adjusted sack rate) at home against the statue formally known as Brock.
2. Largest Lead Under 16.5 (-110)
Forgive me for having no understanding of how HOU can be favored by 7.5 points. And for that reason, I don’t believe that we will see anything close to a blow out with a total this low.
3. There be a Defensive or Special Teams Touchdown (+180)
Brocktober + Houstons O-line =great time to take a shot at this +180 dog. Now that is scientific.
4. Lamar Miller Under 64.5 Rush Yards (-110)
Miller has been hot garbage most of his career and Miami has been an above average run defense this year checking in at 11th in DVOA. While I expect him to get some work, I don’t foresee a game where HOU is up 21 and killing clock. Enjoy.
5. DeVante Parker Over 32.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
Kenny Stills out, Albert Wilson out, Parker in. I know he has been a bust his entire career but if there was ever an opportunity this week is it. Hopefully talent+opportunity=$$$.
Good luck and Let it Ride!!!
