Sunday Prop Shop: Week 1

Welcome to the Sunday Prop Shop. 

Every Saturday, we'll dive inside the thousands of NFL props from our friends over at PointsBet Sportsbook. Please scale back your bet size on props, because a lot of these picks will be longer shots to win. I like to bet a little to win a lot with props. If you bet 100 dollars a game, go with 10 or 20 bucks a prop. 

Let's go.

$10 Mitchell Trubisky to score touchdown at anytime (+525)

$10 Cole Kmet to score touchdown at anytime (+1050)

It's very clear that people love to bet against Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. I totally understand if you do, but that provides me with value on Chicago +3 and on Bears player props. Trubisky is no stranger to the bootleg inside the 10-yard line and he's got better wheels than you think. Mitch has also carved up the Lions under head coach Matt Nagy, completing 75 percent of his passes for 866 yards with nine touchdowns and one interception. I also spoke to a couple Bears reporters and they told me that the 6-foot-6, 260-pound Kmet is going to get plenty of opportunities inside the red zone. He's good for at least one jump ball a game. Let's play 'em both. 

$10 Robby Anderson scores touchdown and Panthers win (+590)

I love props like this. Two things have to break your way, but that's baked into the payout price should they both come to fruition. Sportsbooks are going to need the Panthers in the worst way. Oakla... er... Las Vegas opened PK and it's been bet all the way to Las Vegas -3 around the country. I want to fade the silver and black and pair my bet with a Carolina receiver that'll get enough targets. Anderson caught 18 touchdowns over the last three years with the Jets. I imagine life will be easier for him in Carolina with Joe Brady calling the shots on offense. 

$10 Jacksonville Jaguars exactly zero touchdowns (+485)

Would this one really shock you? Would you be surprised if the Colts won this game 31-9? Jacksonville is a team with a purpose this season. That purpose appears to be to lose as many games as possible to get the No. 1 overall pick and draft Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence. The Jaguars Offense doesn't have many weapons at the skill positions and their offensive line leaves a lot to be desired. They probably get in the end zone once (+112), but it's too fun to root against them not crossing the goal line. Especially at around 5-to-1.
