You can't win if you don't bet. That's a fact. I've been betting games for over 20 years and writing about it for the past 10. If there's a game, there's an angle. We just have to find it.

The best part of Sundays are when the early games kick off. It’s pure magic and I’m not sure much in the world tops that. But, a very underrated thing happens at around the 4pm ET hour. New games kick off and with them, new possibilities. No matter what happened with the early games, all can be forgiven with one sweet, sweet bet. My go-to market is the NFL player prop section of the sportsbook. The one we have for Sunday is as sweet as they come!

On top of this article, you should definitely check out our NFL experts picks. It’s just a smart thing to do. Also, bets can be added to the card, so why not follow me on Twitter so you don’t miss them. It makes perfect sense.

Myles Gaskin over 3.5 receptions (+115)

Line available at DraftKings at time of publishing.

It doesn’t matter where you get this one as DraftKings and BetMGM both have 3.5 +115 for this NFL player prop. FanDuel still doesn’t post reception props, so there is no need to look there for this one. They have receiving yards, which is nice, but I think the value is in the reception total for Gaskin on Sunday.

Myles Gaskin is in a committee but he is the top of the food chain. Last week he was on the field for 61% of the snaps, which is good enough for me. He’ll have Jacoby Brissett throwing him balls which may be a good thing. Brissett targeted Gaskin 5 times last week and that’s not likely to change this week. I would expect the Dolphins to be chasing points, which further helps us get home.

The Raiders have hung points on both teams they’ve played this season and the Dolphins have the 30th-ranked defensive DVOA in the NFL. The Raiders shouldn’t have problems scoring on them, which will keep our guys throwing the entire time. Las Vegas has given up 10 receptions to running backs already this season so it’s not crazy to think Gaskin can get 4 given the environment.
