Best CFB player prop for the Week 6 slate: Clifford bombs Hawkeyes

Sean Clifford CFB player prop

The Penn State Nittany Lions travel to Iowa City on Saturday to take on the Iowa Hawkeyes. Both teams are undefeated and both teams are in the top 5 in the country but only one will be able to say that after this game. We need some action on this thing. Luckily for us, we have more than a handful of ways to get down on this game and my favorite is the CFB player prop. There shouldn’t be too much offense in this game but that shouldn’t stop us from looking at Sean Clifford.

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? Things change all day with CFB games so there is a chance for opportunity to knock.

Sean Clifford over 1.5 passing TDs (+160)

Line available at DraftKings at time of publishing.

This bet is a great example of why you should shop around for CFB player props. FanDuel is offering this same number at -102 while DraftKings is sitting at +160. I don’t think I need to tell you what we should do. It’s crazy to think the prices would be that far off but they are and it’s fantastic (if you have DraftKings).

Sean Clifford is balling so far this season. He’s the quarterback of a 5-0 Penn State team that is ranked number 4 in the country, so that kind of goes without saying. I was surprised to see 1.5 with a plus sign next to his name in the passing TD market given the fact that he’s gone over this number in each of his last 3 games. That includes a game against the Auburn Tigers.

The Iowa Hawkeyes have one of the better run defenses in the nation which is contributing to this low number for Clifford. The thing is, I think it helps us when finding passing TD props. Team can’t run and are forced to throw. Especially near the goal line. Last week Taulia Tagovailoa threw 2 touchdowns against Iowa in a 51-14 beating. I think Penn State can win this game but even if they don’t, I still think Clifford can throw at least 2 touchdowns. This shouldn’t be +160.
