Thursday Night Football Prop Bets – Five Ways to Get Paid
1. Vance McDonald Over 39.5 Receiving Yards (-125) and 2. Over 3.5 Receptions (-125)
3. Greg Olsen Over 48.5 Receiving Yards (-120) and 4. Over 4.5 Receptions (-110)
Guess who else sucks at defending the TE, that’s right your Pittsburg Steelers. The Steelers are 29th against the TE from a fantasy perspective and 26th in DVOA (9.2 for 74). A rare Double-Double dip but this is the dream matchup for both TEs.
5. Christian McCaffrey Under 105.5 Rush+Receiving Yards (-115)
The Steeler defense has been playing better of late, specifically, they are #1 against RBs in the passing game in DVOA. The under is the play here as anyone who has watched the Panthers knows, slow down McCaffrey and slow down the Panthers.
Good luck and Let it Ride!!!
