Here’s a Closer Look at the 2016 Best NFL Betting Props

Wide Receiving Yards

Right now, the favorites are Julio Jones from Atlanta and Antonio Brown from Pittsburgh, both set at +350. Brown led the league in 2014 with 1,698 yards and 13 scores, with Jones finishing at 1,593 yards and six scores. Last year, Jones won the battle with 1,871 yards, with Brown finishing with 1,834 yards. Because of the early suspension to Le’Veon Bell, Brown will have to carry more of the load, so I would pick him. If you want more of a dark horse, there’s always Dez Bryant (+2500). He is fragile — and so is his quarterback, Tony Romo. Bryant did average 1,312 yards per season between 2012 and 2014. Alshon Jeffery from Chicago is also at +2500, but he is also fragile, and no one knows if Jay Cutler will be his rejuvenated self again in 2016.

Over/Under Win Totals

Dallas Cowboys (9.5)

With Tony Romo and Dez Bryant healthy again, with Ezekiel Elliott in the backfield behind that strong offensive line, and in that weak NFC East, the Cowboys should go over this total easily.

Detroit Lions (7)

Let’s see. Calvin Johnson retired, and the Lions don’t have a solid running back. Their defense gives up a ton of big plays. I see the Lions falling behind the other three teams in this division and finishing under.

Carolina Panthers (10.5)

Three easy conference foes means five or six wins in the bag. You don’t think they can find six other wins in their schedule? I have them starting with a big one in Denver on opening night. I’m taking the Panthers to go over.

New England Patriots (10.5)

I have the Patriots going 2-2 during the Brady suspension. That means that they will have 12 more games to win 9 games and stay over this total. They have two wins over Buffalo and two wins over the Dolphins the way I see it, and at least one over the Jets. I think they finish over with a division crown.

Cleveland Browns (4.5)

With RGIII coming to town, I see the Browns surprising a lot of teams this year. They play the NFC East and could win three of those four games alone. I like the Browns to finish over here.

Leading Running Back

I know he’s not yet the favorite, but Ezekiel Elliott is my surprise pick to lead the NFL in rushing this year. He won’t have to carry the offense in Dallas, but he will have a line that made enough holes for journeyman Darren McFadden to get over 1,000 yards. I like Elliott as a dark horse pick to lead the league.
