Following an exciting Thursday Night Football game, hopefully the rest of NFL Week 15 can follow suit. In order to get some skin in the game, it’s fun to bet some player props so you can win along with these players! Let’s take a look at five of the best NFL betting player props to place for Week 15.
The Colts face the Patriots in one of the NFL’s games on Saturday. New England’s defensive philosophy is to take away the opponent’s strength, forcing them to win by doing something else. Clearly, the Colts’ strength is the rushing attack, so look for that to be slowed, forcing them to rely more on the arm of Carson Wentz.
While Wentz has protected the ball well this season, the Patriots force 1.5 interceptions per game, which is tied for the most in the league. Wentz will panic and make at least one bad decision in this game, and the Patriots are known for capitalizing on bad decisions.
The Titans face the Steelers and their struggling run defense this week. Pittsburgh allows 5.0 yards per rushing attempt, which is the worst in the NFL. This rises to 5.5 over their past three games.
With Derrick Henry out, D’Onta Foreman has operated as the early-down/lead running back for this team. He has 11 or more carries in three of his past four games, and Foreman may not even need that many to go over this yardage prop.
No team in the NFL surrenders more receiving yards to wide receivers than the Titans, who give up 197.6 per game.
The top receiver for the Steelers is clearly Diontae Johnson, who has 990 yards on 130 targets. He has totaled over 78.5 receiving yards in four of his past five games. Johnson should continue the trend on Sunday.
It was recently confirmed that this is the final run for Ben Roethlisberger. With his team in must-win mode, look for us to see the best he can give. He showed this last week, looking really good against the Vikings. With a few extra days off to rest and heal, look for Big Ben to put up a good performance at home and keep his team alive in the playoff hunt.
Roethlisberger has totaled over 260.5 passing yards in three of his past four games. The Titans rank 22nd in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game, at 250.7. Of course, this number looks better due to the division they play in.
One of the big stories from a football point of view during the Urban Meyer era was his treatment and usage of James Robinson after he was one of the best running backs in the NFL last season. Now that Meyer is out of the picture, interim head coach Darrell Bevell has already shared his commitment to Robinson as the starting running back.
Facing a Texans team that has surrendered 17 touchdowns to running backs this season, look for Robinson to fall in the end zone at least once this week.
