This feels like a good week for Seattle overs

It’s really tough to say what the Tennessee Titans offense will look like today against the Seattle Seahawks. That makes the Seattle side the easier side to bet here. Geno Smith returns for the Seahawks after missing a couple of games. This is a great spot for him to ease back in.

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 Seahawks, brought to us by DraftKings Sportsbook. Check them out for all of the available prop bets for the game.

DK Metcalf, anytime TD

Odds: +155

The Titans defense is severely depleted and Metcalf is a monster. He’s going to have a huge game in this one.

Geno Smith, 239.5 receiving yards

Over: -115 Under: -115

I have trouble seeing any scenario here where Smith doesn’t have a huge game. The Titans are missing Jeffery Simmons and three of the four opening day starters in the secondary.

DK Metcalf, 58.5 receiving yards

Over: -145 Under: +114

There’s no real value there, but it seems like a really good bet to hit the over for the reasons listed above. If you combine these three bets into a Same Game Parlay you get +440 odds. That’s pretty good!
