NFL Prop Bets To Consider In Week 10
All four of these bets feature one player, who is in a fantastic spot
When placing a prop bet, it’s important to consider a variety of factors including statistics and data, narratives and storylines, injuries and situations and your own gut. When all of those factors intertwine, magic can happen.
That’s the case this week, as Buffalo Bills rookie running back Devin Singletary has four different exploitable props to consider on DraftKings:
- To score a touchdown (+145)
- To score two touchdowns (+800)
- To have over 65.5 rushing yards (-125)
- To have more rushing yards than Nick Chubb (+145)
Last Week’s Breakout
It finally happened. Singletary took over lead back duties in Buffalo. He broke out in Week 9, carrying the ball 20 times for 95 yards and a touchdown while catching three passes for 45 yards against the Washington Redskins. It was the first 20-carry workload for a Bills running back in 2019 and Buffalo ran the ball 39 times (a season-high). That was by design and he was active in the running and passing attacks (and was even targeted in the end zone).
Meanwhile, Frank Gore carried the ball 11 times for an ineffective 15 yards.
This Week’s Opportunity
At this point, it seems logical for Singletary to see the lion’s share of the snaps at running back for the Bills considering his explosive upside. While Gore might steal snaps in short-yardage and goal-line situations, expect Singletary to continue his surge against the dumpster fire also known as the Browns.
Last week, Washington’s defense ranked 28th against the run. The Browns rank 29th. Therefore, expect a similar game plan in this contest. Betting on Singletary to score a touchdown (+145), to have over 65.5 rushing yards (-125) and to have more rushing yards than Nick Chubb (+145) seem like logical wagers. Taking a flyer on a two-touchdown performance (+800) is a high-upside bet with a legitimate chance of occurring.
In Cleveland’s loss last week, they allowed a nine-rush, 92-yard performance to similarly-shifty Phillip Lindsay, who also scored a touchdown. Further, Chris Carson gashed them for 124 yards in Week 6 after the 49ers rushed for 275 team yards against them collectively in Week 5. The Browns have not been able to stop the run so far and Buffalo made a concerted effort to put together a creative game plan that was built around featuring Singletary last week. There’s no reason to expect a different approach this week and moving forward.
