Best CFB player prop for the Week 3 slate: Nix limps home
We can bet CFB player props and that fact alone will change my life for the better this Saturday. It’s crazy how different the prop game is than the side and total business. Find a game script and exploit it is literally all you have to do. How hard is that? There is one CFB player prop that I was waiting for all week long and the line came out exactly where I wanted it. It’s in the Auburn/Penn State matchup at 7:30pm Et on Saturday. It doesn’t get much better than that!
On top of this article, you should definitely check out our CFB experts’ picks for the action today. It’s just a smart thing to do. Also, bets can be added to the card, so why not follow me on Twitter in case we get some last-second action? Once lineups are announced for some of these games, there is a chance for opportunity to knock.
Bo Nix over 201.5 Passing Yards (-115)
Line available at DraftKings at time of publishing.
So far this season DraftKings has been the absolute leader in CFB player props. It’s not even close either. If you want to get down on at least 24 hours before the games kick, DraftKings is the only show in town. For that reason I went with DraftKings on this one.
Bo Nix is not a great quarterback by any means but 201.5 passing yards is downright rude. So far this season he hasn’t played anyone so we’ll see first hand if Mike Bobo’s offense is good against good competition. So far against the cupcakes, it has smashed as the Tigers have hung 60 points on each of their first 2 opponents. I can’t stress just how weak those 2 opponents have been though.
Penn State’s defense is very good, but they really have yet to see a “real” offense. (I know they played Wisconsin but that’s not what I mean by a real offense.) Despite that fact, Drew Pitt from Ball State just threw for 176 yards last week against the Nittany Lions. All we need to happen is to get a game in the 20s and Nix should be able to go over 201.5 yards passing. If he can connect on even 1 big play, we will cash this easily.
