Best NFL Prop Bets Week 2
Brees vs. Brady – Who Wins?
The sub plot to Sunday’s game at New Orleans between the hometown Saints and the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots will be determining which of the two all-world quarterbacks at the helm of these respective teams – Tom Brady of the Patriots and Drew Brees of the Saints – will carry the day. But you don’t have to sit there and wonder about it.
No, thanks to these NFL prop gets from Bovada.lv, you can wager on the outcome of this showdown of future enshrinees in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
Brees has led the NFL in passing yardage in each of the past three season and five times since 2011. There’s a couple of reasons for this – he’s really good, and the Saints’ running game is not.
On the other hand, the Saints were the NFL’s worst defense against the pass last season and in Week One, made Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford look like Fran Tarkenton.
Still, the Patriots figure to win this one easily, so Brady won’t be required to air it out as frequently as Brees. So we’ll take Brees in this wager.Pick: Brees (-110) Bovada
While Brees figures to put up the numbers, it’s Brady who will put up the points. Brady knows how to find the open man in the end zone. He’s led the NFL in TD passes four times, most recently in 2015. Brees has also been the leader four times, but not since 2012.Pick: Brady (-150) Bovada
Running For Daylight
Three rookies opened their NFL careers with 100-yard rushing days in Week One, and that led Bovada to offer a prop bet on which of the three will gain the most yards over the course of the season. Kansas City’s Kareem Hunt, who went off for 148 yards against the Patriots, is the chalk at +200. Minnesota’s Dalvin Cook, who ran for 127 yards against the Saints, and Jacksonville’s Leonard Fournette, who gained 100 yards versus Houston, are both pegged at +250.
You can also play the field of any other rookie runner at odds of +250.Pick: Fournette (+250) Bovada
New York Jets’ Pursuit Of Futility
You lose one game to the Buffalo Bills and all of a sudden, everyone has you on death watch. There were bold predictions by some football pundits that the Jets could equal the ineptitude of the 2008 Detroit Lions and go 0-16. With one down and 15 to go, BetOnline.ag is already offering a prop bet on when, if at all, the Jets will finally taste victory in 2017.
If you believe that the Jets will do the improbable and upend the Raiders this Sunday in Oakland, that wager would be worth a return of +500. Those are the highest odds you will get until Week Six, when they are plus +3300 to win at home against the Patriots.
Personally, we’re leaning toward a Week Nine rematch with the Bills at MetLife Stadium, which would return a cool +1200. But if you think the Jets can run the table without tasting victory, that wager gives odds of +1000.Pick: Week Nine (+1200) Bovada
Pats Running The Table
There was also talk at the start of the season of the Patriots going 16-0, but the Kansas City Chiefs quickly put a halt to that notion. Still, BetOnline is confident that there are still many believers that the Patriots will be difficult to beat again.
They are offering +1200 odds that the Patriots go 18-1 and win Super Bowl 52 without again tasting defeat this season. If you think there’s at least one more loss left in New England’s season, you’ll get odds of -2500 for that wager.Pick: No (-2500) Bovada
