We know that Derrick Henry heats up as the calendar turns to November. We also know that running backs are more likely to have a big game when their team is favored at home. Put those things together and you have the recipe for a day where Henry puts up some big numbers. The overs on his props are the way to go today!
In case you do not know, prop bets are wagers that are specific to an event or player inside a bigger contest. Bets can be on things like player statistics, which team does something specific, or who is the first to do something. Some of the most well-known prop bets each year is on the exact length of the National Anthem before the Super Bowl or the color of the Gatorade that will be poured over the winning coach after the Super Bowl. A player statistic prop typically provides a fractional stat total, with bets made for the player going over or under that mark.
Bets are placed like moneyline bets, using + and - odds. The favorite on the moneyline, or in the prop bet, is indicated by a negative number, such as -150. Using this example, a bettor would have to place a $150 bet to win $100 (a total of $250 returned).
The underdog is represented by a positive number, such as +150. In this case, the bettor would place a $100 bet to win $150 if the prop hits (again, $250 returned).
Here are some of the prop bets for today’s game, brought to us by DraftKings Sportsbook. Check them out for all of the available prop bets for the game.
Derrick Henry, 11.5 receiving yards
Over: -115 Under: -115
You know the drill, one screen pass that is moderately successful gets us to the over here.
Derrick Henry, 69.5 rushing yards
Over: -135 Under: +105
As I said above, this one has the recipe to feature a game script that sees Henry get 20+ carries. That makes the over here pretty easy.
Bryce Young, 0.5 touchdown passes
Over: -230 Under: +175
The Titans secondary has been terrible. This feels like a pretty easy over as well.
