NFL Player Props 

The NFL is easily the most bet-on professional sports league in the country. Because of that, the sports betting market is always adapting and adding new ways for bettors to get in on the action.

NFL player props are one of those innovations. Player props allow you to bet on individual players, in individual circumstances. For instance, you can bet on who will score the most points, or who will get the most tackles in a specific game.

If you’d like to bet on things like Rookie of the Year, or who will win the MVP award, NFL player futures bets are more your style.

Props can be placed on any player, from the star quarterback to the backup running back. You can place them up until the game day, as long as you do so before the coin toss.

Online sportsbooks like Caesars Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook, and Draftkings Sportsbook are all great places to find prop odds and make wagers on the player prop market.

Common Types of NFL Player Props

There are several different types of NFL player prop bets. The most common one is the touchdown prop bet, which is a wager on whether or not a certain player will score a touchdown in a game.

Another common choice among sports bettors is the rushing prop, which is a bet on how many yards a player will rush for in a game.

You can place similar wagers on how many receptions a player will have, how many passing yards, and more.

Let’s break down the most common NFL player props:

Passing Yards

You can bet on NFL passing yards props at most online sportsbooks. One of the most common prop bets is on the over/under for a player’s passing yards in a game. For example, if the over/under for Tom Brady’s (Tampa Bay’s QB) passing yards is set at 300, you can bet on whether he will throw for more or less than 300 yards in the game.

You can also bet on how many passing yards a player will have in a season. Other great QBs like Aaron Rodgers, Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, Kyler Murray, Joe Burrow, Matt Ryan, Ryan Tannehill, and Kirk Cousins have their yardage props and the over/under totals are heavily dependent on the opponent and the field the game is played on.

Rushing Yards Prop

In an NFL rushing yards bet, you are essentially betting on how many yards a particular player will run during the course of a game. The odds are usually expressed as a moneyline, and you can bet either over or under a certain number of yards.

For example, if the line is set at 50 yards per game and you bet the over, you would need the player to run for 51 or more yards to win your bet. If you bet the under, you would need the player to run for 49 or fewer yards.

Here’s some betting advice: it’s recommended to on running backs whose team are favored to win so your bet has a favorable game Script. So options like Melvin Gordon, Christian McCaffrey, 

Reception Prop

There’s a lot of money to be made betting on NFL props, and one of the most popular prop bets is the over/under on receiving yards for a particular player. This bet is based on the total number of yards a player will accumulate during the course of a season.

The trick is to correctly predict whether that player will go over or under the number set by oddsmakers.

Every pass catcher has a reception prop. Wide Receivers like A.J. Brown, Stefon Diggs, and Courtland Sutton all have their reception/receiving yard-based prop bets.

Caesars Sportsbook usually has plenty of receiving yard and reception props to choose from.

Interceptions Prop

You can bet on whether or not an NFL player will intercept a pass during the game.

The over/under is usually set at 0.5, meaning that you can bet on whether or not the player will intercept more than or less than half a pass.

Interception player prop betting is a great way to make money if you know a lot about the team’s defensive abilities.

Field Goals Prop

You can also bet on the over/under on Field Goals made or blocked. One of the most exciting aspects of sports is the drama that comes with a close game.

Sometimes, it comes down to one kick at the end to decide the victor. With field goals, this drama is magnified tenfold, as every point can be the difference between winning and losing. 

Touchdown Scorer Props

In NFL betting, the “over/under” bet on touchdowns scored by a particular player is a popular way to try and predict how many points they will score in a game.

For example, if the over/under on Tom Brady’s touchdown total for a game is set at 2.5, bettors can wager on whether they think he will score more or less than 2.5 touchdowns in that game.

DraftKings Sportsbook usually has plenty of touchdown scorer-based props including the first touchdown scored, most touchdowns scored, etc. 

Anytime touchdown scorer, which is a wager for a player to score any time during a game, doesn’t include passing touchdowns.

Weekly NFL Player Prop Betting Odds

Sportsbooks publish new betting lines each week so you can make your wagers on that week’s games.

You can see odds for player props like passing touchdowns, first touchdown scorer, anytime touchdown scorer, passing yards per game, and more.

Betting analysts and handicappers calculate fresh odds for key players like Justin Jefferson, Aaron Donald, and Michael Thomas with each passing game.

NFL Draft And Free Agency Props

In the NFL, there are two main ways for players to change teams: the draft and free agency.

The draft is when teams select players who have recently finished college. Free agency is when players who have completed their contracts can sign with any team they want.

Players who are selected in the draft are usually given prop bets on how they will perform in their first season. For example, a player might be given a prop on how many touchdowns they will score.

Free agents can also be given props, but these are usually based on their previous season’s statistics. Examples of props are the following:

  • First Pick of the Draft
  • The player is selected in the first round
  • Draft Positions

What is the best sportsbook for NFL prop bets?

Sports bettors have a variety of legal sportsbooks that they can choose from for placing NFL prop bets.

FanDuel Sportsbook, DraftKings Sportsbook, and Caesars Sportsbook are all official sports betting partners of the NFL and they each offer a wide variety of prop bets, including player and game props.
