There are a lot of ways this game can play out tonight, but I can’t see any of them being positive for the Tennessee Titans. The Dolphins have one of the most explosive defenses in the league and the Titans will be without their best defensive player here. It would be tough for me to be the under on any prop involving the Miami guys on offense. They obviously won’t all hit, but most of them probably will.
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 tonight’s game between the Titans and Dolphins, brought to us by DraftKings Sportsbook. Check them out for all of the available prop bets for the game.
Tyreek Hill, 108.5 receiving yards
Over: -130 Under: +130
They are begging you to take the under with a number that high and plus odds, but you would be crazy to take the under. Hill is on pace to set the single-season receiving yards record. The Titans don’t have a corner that can even pretend to cover him.
Jaylen Waddle, 66.5 receiving yards
Over: -115 Under: -115
Bet the over here. They might not both hit, but one of them certainly will. Bet both to at least get one of the two and more likely both.
DeAndre Hopkins 57.5 receiving yards
Over: -115 Under: -115
Bet the over here as well because the Titans will be throwing the ball in junk time once they are down by a few touchdowns. Also, betting unders just isn’t any fun!
