Best CFB player prop for the Week 8 slate: O'Connell bombs Badgers
Here’s the thing about Saturday’s, you need action. That’s just a good ole fact. By my count, there are almost 5000 college football games this Saturday (give or take). With that in mind, we should easily be able to find a CFB player prop to get us by for the day. It’s math, 5000 games + 1 player prop = easy. I like to stick to the quarterback passing TD numbers and I think I found a good one. What makes it perfect is that we are getting +150.
On top of this article, you should definitely check out our CFB expert 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.
Aidan O’Connell over 1.5 passing TDs (+150)
Line available at DraftKings at time of publishing.
DraftKings is the place I look to first for my CFB player props. I almost always stick to quarterback passing TDs and DraftKings is generally first to the market with them. BetMGM and FanDuel will both be out with numbers later in the day on Fridays but when I see a price I can live with at DraftKings, I jump on it.
Aidan O’Connell isn’t going to wow to many people but he can get the job done. He proved it over the last couple weeks with 370+ passing yard days in each game. In Purdue’s win over Iowa last week, O’Connell found the endzone twice via pass which is what we are looking for again this week.
The reason I think he can do it again is because much like Iowa’s defense, nobody can run on the Wisconsin. On the season teams are averaging a terrible 2.2 yards a carry against them. This creates a pass funnel where the only way into the painted area is by throwing. I don’t think this will be a very high scoring game but at 1.5, we don’t need it to be. Purdue can score 14 points and we still get home. This CFB player prop shouldn’t be +150.
