Last week I was on all the overs for the Miami Dolphins passing game. None of that happened because Tyreek Hill got hurt early in the game and the Tennessee Titans defense actually played really well. This week figures to be a bit more of a slog with both teams being pretty good on defense and the Houston Texans starting Case Keenum.
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 Texans, brought to us by DraftKings Sportsbook. Check them out for all of the available prop bets for the game.
Derrick Henry, anytime TD
Henry owns the Texans and has scored four touchdowns in the last two games.
DeAndre Hopkins, 59.5 receiving yards
Over: -110 Under: -120
The juice is on the over here. Will Levis has loved to target Hopkins since he took over as the starting quarterback, and this is a revenge game for Nuk.
Nick Folk, 1.5 field goals made
Over: +105 Under: -135
I can see the Titans defense forcing a couple of turnovers in plus territory but the Texans defense holding the Titans to a field goal.
