NFL Receiving Yards Prop Pick
Antonio Brown is favored to lead the NFL in receiving yards this season, but is there a better play on the board for prop bettors?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Brown is a 2/1 favorite to lead the NFL in receiving yards in 2016-17. Julio Jones has the next-best odds at 3/1, while Odell Beckham has odds of 15/2 and DeAndre Hopkins is 10/1.
A.J. Green and Jordy Nelson, meanwhile, are both 18/1, respectively, to lead the NFL in receiving yards while Allen Robinson is 20/1. Alshon Jeffery is 22/1, Amari Cooper is 25/1, while Keenan Allen, Dez Bryant, Mike Evans, T.Y. Hilon, Brandon Marshall and Demaryius Thomas are all 33/1, respectively.
The other mid-range long shots include Sammy Watkins at 40/1 and Brandin Cooks, Golden Tate and Jeremy Maclin at 50/1. Jarvis Landry, Doug Baldwin, Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman, Kelvin Benjamin and DeSean Jackson are all 66/1, respectively.
The rest of the receivers listed in this prop wager are all 100/1. Those wideouts are Donte Moncreif, Emmanuel Sanders, Eric Decker, John Brown, Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, Allen Hurns, Jordan Matthews, Kevin White, Laquan Tredwell, Markus Wheaton and Toerry Smith.
OUR PICK: Even though Brown has slightly bettor odds, Jones should lead the NFL in receiving this season as long as he stays healthy. He's going to see a slew of targets again playing in Kyle Shanahan's offense and remains Matt Ryan's go-to guy. Jones projects to rack up 1,815 yards while Brown should finish behind him with 1,694 yards. Beckham would be the value play at 15/2, but the smart money is on Jones.
