Greg Olsen NFC Title Prop Odds
Greg Olsen isn’t getting the credit he may deserve for being a top-level tight end in the NFL. Will he prove his value in the NFC Championship on Sunday?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Carolina is favored at home, as the Panthers are getting odds of -3 points against the Cardinals. The over/under total has been set at 47.5 points. These two meet tonight at 6:40PM ET on FOX.
In a team that is lacking a lot of talent at the skill positions, Olsen has been crucial to the success of the Panthers (16-1, 12-5 ATS) this season. The 9-year NFL veteran from Miami has had arguably the top season in his career. Olsen has caught 77 passes for 1,104 yards and 7 touchdowns this season. Last week, he added 6 receptions for 77 yards with a touchdown in a 31-24 win over the Seahawks. For today’s game with the Cardinals (14-3, 9-8 ATS), Olsen has been given an over/under of 70.5 receiving yards and 5 receptions.
The Cardinals have the eighth-ranked passing defense in the NFL, giving up 230.4 yards per game through the air. This season, Arizona gave up 878 receiving yards and six touchdowns to opposing tight ends, allowing 71 yards or more in five games this season. Olsen has had at least 71 yards in six games this season. He’s had two games where he landed exactly on 70 yards. He has grabbed five catches or more in eight games this year.
