What is your favorite prop bet for NFL Week 3?
Aaron Rodgers To Get 300+ Passing Yards (+171)
After getting Kyler Murray in his first NFL game to start the season, the Lions have faced mostly studs at the quarterback position, and it won’t be getting easier this weekend. Detroit will head to Green Bay Monday night to face Rodgers and the Packers who appear back on track, starting the season 4-1 against the NFC’s top teams. While Rodgers has only gone for 300+ yards once, this Lions’ defense has been getting torched through the air, allowing 280.8 yards per game (29th in the NFL). Rodgers has also had an appetite for Monday nights in recent memory, averaging 349.3 passing yards per game over his last four going back to 2014.

Preston Williams to get 75+ receiving yards (+135)
This is a bit of a weird pick considering Williams has yet to surpass 68 receiving yards, but it makes sense. Washington has the worst defense Miami has faced and its secondary is one of the worst in the league. Williams has 19 targets in the last two games, and if he can catch a couple more of them than usual, 75 yards is in range.

Patrick Mahomes over 400 yards (+375)
Mahomes is coming off two of the worst statistical performances of his career, which leaves great value at the 400-yard number. His matchup against the Texans has all the makings of a shootout, and despite the fact that the Texans are only giving up 270.4 passing yards per game, I expect Mahomes and the Chiefs to get right this week. With Deshaun Watson on the other side, there is no safe time to stop scoring.

Mark Ingram over 100 Rushing Yards (+240)
The Bengals have allowed an atrocious 167.6 yards rushing this season, second-worst to only the Dolphins. The Ravens have shown they are still very much a run-heavy team, evidenced by Ingram’s 19 rushing attempts last week against Pittsburgh. When Ingram gets a favorable matchup, he often exploits it. In Week 1 versus the Dolphins, he went for over 100 rushing yards, and in Week 3 against the Chiefs, he went for over 100 again. The game script will favor Ingram this week, as the Ravens are 11-point favorites. Getting him at plus money to go over the total this week is a bet I really like.

Carlos Hyde to get 75+ rushing yards (-106)
Carlos Hyde has averaged 62 YPG and has only broken 75 yards rushing twice this season. However, this week he faces a Kansas City defense that ranks 30th in rushing yards per game allowed at 155.8 yards per game. The Indianapolis Colts gave many teams the blueprint for beating the Chiefs. They controlled the ball for over 37 minutes and ran for 180 yards. Throw in the fact that Hyde is facing his former team, and there is added motivation for coach Bill O’Brien to force-feed his workhorse back.
