Best NFL Prop Bets For Thursday Night Football Week 7
Week 7 will get underway here, with the Philadelphia Eagles hosting the New York Giants. These teams are 1-4-1 and 1-5 respectively, but incredibly both are still in the thick of the playoff picture thanks to the pitiful state of the NFC East. What a division.
While the side and total will understandably attract a lot of attention, and you can read our picks on those here, there’s plenty of value on props as well. With that in mind, there are two player props that we love for this Thursday Night Football game:
Boston Scott under 49.5 rushing yards (-110)
Eagles running back Miles Sanders is out for this game, and oddsmakers often overcompensate for injuries to star players. That’s certainly the case here. I don’t see any reason to believe Scott will be a featured back here, let alone have that much success. People seem to forget that Corey Clement is still in the picture here, and it wouldn’t surprise me if he ended up splitting things nearly evenly with Scott.
Even if Scott gets a good amount of carries, I don’t think he’s going to have too much room to run. This Philly offensive line is extremely banged up, and they aren’t going to be paving many lanes here against an underrated Giants defensive front. New York has quietly been extremely stout against the run, as they rank fifth in the league in yards per carry allowed.
Carson Wentz over 0.5 interceptions (+108)
Getting plus-money here is a steal. As I just mentioned I don’t think the Eagles are going to have much success on the ground, which should mean we see a bunch of pass attempts from Wentz here. More attempts means more chances for an interception. Last week was the first time in six games that Wentz managed not to throw a pick, so I can’t see why oddsmakers would think it’s below 50/50 he throws one here.
Not only has he thrown interceptions in five of six games, he threw multiple interceptions in four of those. Quite simply he’s looked lost this season, and it doesn’t help that his receivers have been dropping like flies. Free agent acquisition James Bradberry has greatly improved this Giants secondary, and New York has now picked off Kyle Allen and Dak Prescott in back to back weeks. Wentz is going to have at least one costly turnover, and potentially a couple.
