Fantasy Football Betting Props

As fantasy football continues to grow in popularity, so does NFL prop betting which is a terrific way for fantasy gurus to clean up every Sunday, instead of waiting out the whole season to claim their league victory. With Sunday kickoff still a few hours away bettors still have time to wager on season-long prop bets. One prop bet I like to get some cash in on every year is Manning vs. Manning. This year they've got a good selection of Manning brother props at Bovada, with a passing yards prop and a touchdown passes prop. On the passing yards prop Peyton's been given a -700.5 yard spread, but both brothers are listed at -115. That spread looks to be about right, although if both Mannings put up stats similar to last season you'll want to lay your cash on Eli.

Last season Peyton passed for 4,500 yards and Eli had 4,021 yards, which is a differential of only 479 yards. In the previous four seasons Peyton had easily topped Eli's passing yards total by more than 700 yards. Part of the problem last season was that the Colts shut it down late, giving Eli the chance to make up some ground on his brother. With Houston hoping to contend in the AFC South this season that may not happen again, so Peyton should get his advantage back and is worth the bet. On the Manning brothers touchdown prop Peyton's been given a -5.5 TD spread. Again, the oddsmakers did their homework and came up with a smart spread. Last season Peyton threw 33 touchdowns, while Eli had 27, or six less. So last year Peyton would have paid on this year's spread. The oddsmakers have actually listed Eli as the favorite at -120, while Peyton is a +110 underdog. Considering Peyton has thrown at least six more touchdowns than Eli every year his younger brother has been in the league, I'll take Peyton as the underdog.

If you're looking for what looks like a can't-miss winning prop you should head over to Bodog and throw some cash down on Chris Johnson's rushing yards prop. Last season Johnson rushed for a league-high 2,006 yards. The Bodog oddsmakers must be expecting him to take a step backwards this season because they set his over/under rushing yards total at only 1,500 yards. Unless he gets injured Johnson should easily eclipse 1,500 yards this season, right? That makes this prop a gold mine at -115. Get in now before the total gets bumped up. One last interesting prop this season centers around the showboat receivers in Cincinnati, Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens. They don't have a versus prop, but you get them individually at Bodog. Right now Ochocinco is being touted higher than Owens on both his receiving yards and touchdown props even though Owens is supposed to be the No. 1. Ocho's yards total has been set at 1,050, and his TD total at seven. Last season without Owens around he had 1,047 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. You would expect both numbers to drop with Owens getting balls thrown his way, so I'd take the UNDER on Ocho. Owens, on the other hand, has his yards total set at 800 and his TD total at 6.5. Before his lackluster season in Buffalo last year Owens had dipped below the 1,000-yard receiving mark only once in the last nine seasons - and in that lone season he only played seven games. I'd take the OVER on Owens' odds prop, but play it safe with the TD prop and take the UNDER.
