Titans vs. Texans week 17 prop bets

Finding some edges in today’s game.

Today we get Will Levis vs. C.J. Stroud round one. Stroud missed the first matchup between the Tennessee Titans and Houston Texans with a concussion. In that game, the Titans gained just 41 yards on 26 carries if you take out Levis’s rushing yards (he had 25). Surely, in this game, the Titans will try something different, right?!? I know they have to protect Levis, but there has to be a different way than running Derrick Henry into a wall 16 times. Maybe try and run a slant?

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.

Will Levis, over 217.5 passing yards

Over: -115 Under: -115

Like I said above, they have to do something different here. That starts with throwing the ball more. Levis threw it 26 times in the first matchup. I’d like to see him at 35+ in this one.

DeAndre Hopkins, over 60.5 receiving yards

Over: -115 Under: -115

If the Titans do go to a quicker passing game, Hopkins would be the primary beneficiary. He is great a finding a way to get open and contested catch. He should have 10+ targets in this one.

Treylon Burks, over 27.5 receiving yards

Over: -115 Under: -115

This might just be wishful thinking, but I think Burks is going to show up in these final two games - and again, if they can get the ball to him quickly, he can make stuff happen after the catch.
