After two straight weeks of the NFL lighting up the scoreboard to the tune of 172 touchdowns and 15,771 passing yards (both all-time highs through two weeks), it’s no surprise that most of this week’s props revolve around offenses; and more specifically, quarterbacks.
Here’s a look at some of this week’s most interesting prop bets over at [custom:bodog-link], which is soon wrapping up its mammoth 100% deposit bonus.
Brady vs. Fitzpatrick
With a posted total of 54, New England at Buffalo is projected to be the highest scoring game on the board this week. In this prop bet, you can bet the ‘Over’ or ‘Under’ on 555 ½ passing yards between Tom Brady and Ryan Fitzpatrick combined. The ‘Over’ is favored at -130, with Brady leading the NFL in passing with 940 passing yards.
Will Cam Newton Stay Hot?
Right behind Tom Brady in passing is rookie quarterback Cam Newton, who has 854 passing yards through Week 2. [custom:bodog-link] has the over-under for this week’s passing yards against Jacksonville at 250 ½; with the ‘Over’ favored at -140.
Blaine Gabbert's Debut
Rookie Blaine Gabbert will be starting against Cam Newton this week, and bettors can profit on his success or misfortune. The over-unders on touchdown passes and interceptions are each set at ½, with each ‘Over’ set at -200. You can make a nice profit at +160 if you think he will go without a touchdown and bet the under.
Can the Bears protect Jay Cutler?
Through two games, Jay Cutler has been sacked 10 times. This week, the over-under is set at 3 ½ sacks on Cutler. Facing Green Bay’s dangerous defense, it’s no surprise the ‘Over’ comes at a price of -150.
How Many 2-0 Teams Will Make The Playoffs?
There are currently seven 2-0 teams, and the over-under is set at 4 ½. The Packers, Patriots, Jets, and Texans all seem very likely to make the playoffs at this point; can those teams hold on and can the Bills, Lions, or Redskins tip the scale to get to five? -120 says ‘Yes’, -110 says ‘No’.
