I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and spent some quality time with family. We get to close out the holiday weekend with a great game between two teams with championship aspirations. A lot is at stake Sunday Night between Houston and New England as both teams need to win to solidify playoff positioning. My top prop bets for Sunday Night Football are below.

Sunday Night Football Prop Bets
Tom Brady Over 24.5 Completions (-129)
Brady has struggled over the past five games averaging only 239 passing yards per game. Some of this has to do with injuries and lack of consistent play from his receivers. I feel the biggest contributor to his struggles has been the poor weather conditions the Patriots have played in. Three out of the past four games wind and rain have been a major factor and have severely hampered the passing game. Playing in ideal conditions in Houston should help Brady and the Patriots offense overall.
DeAndre Hopkins Under 70.5 Receiving Yards (-129)
Hopkins is playing well and had a huge game against the Colts last week. He’s had at least 80 yards receiving in four of the past five games. Unfortunately, this week he’s facing an elite secondary and possibly the defensive player of the year in Stephon Gilmore. Gilmore held Dallas star receiver Amari Cooper to zero catches last week and also had an interception of Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott. Gilmore has four interceptions and has yet to give up a touchdown this season.
Sony Michel Over 54.5 Rushing Yards (-113)
Sony Michel had a productive game against the Cowboys last week with 85 yards on the ground. Michel has had an up and down season, but the Patriots offensive line looked better last week with the return of tackle Isaiah Wynn to the lineup. The Texans have allowed over 400 yards rushing over the past two games and give up over 100 yards on average per game.
Will Fuller Over 52.5 Receiving Yards (-129)
Fuller had a tremendous game against the Colts last week with seven catches and 140 yards. He’s back from injury and he looked explosive in his return from a hamstring injury. Fuller can be a boom or bust player and I think he has the potential for a solid game against the Patriots. With Stephon Gilmore on DeAndre Hopkins, Fuller could become a key player for Deshaun Watson and the Texans passing game.
