With the NFL season on our doorstep, BetOnline.Ag has released season prop bets for the season. If you want to place a wager on how many touchdowns Michael Thomas will haul in this season, or how many rushing yards Lamar Jackson will accumulate this season, you can over at Bet Online.
Here are four NFL prop bets we think you should keep an eye on through this NFL season.
Christian McCaffrey: 829 ½ Receiving Yards
Under 829 ½: -115
Over 829 ½: -115
Christian McCaffrey has averaged 843 yards in the air over his first three seasons. There’s no doubting McCaffrey’s explosiveness and unique role in the Carolina Panthers’ offense. It’s hard to find a player more involved in his team’s game plan than McCaffrey.
The interesting factor with McCaffrey this season is the huge change over in Carolina’s coaching staff, and personnel this season. With a new Offensive Coordinator in Joe Brady, and a new Quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater it’s easy to be curious about the game plan.
With Joe Brady’s arrival in Carolina, the Carolina receivers are expected to see an uptick in usage this season. Guys like DJ Moore and Curtis Samuel project to see a lot more touches than they have in years past. Does a more receiver friendly offense take away from the productivity of McCaffrey in the pass game.
In a normal season, McCaffrey’s track record would make him almost a lock to go over 829 ½ receiving yards but with question marks on the offensive game plan, it’s fair to consider the under.
Mitchell Trubisky: 17 ½ Touchdown Passes
Under 17 ½: -125
Over 17 ½: -105
Mitchell Trubisky played in 15 of 16 games last season and threw 17 touchdowns. In the offseason the Bears added Nick Foles to the QB Room to compete for the starting Job. Trubisky won the job in camp but is considered to be on a short leash.
Does anyone actually expect Trubisky to make it through the year as the starter? No? I didn’t think so.
Consider pounding the under.
Will Aaron Rodgers be the Packers Starting QB in 2021?
A look ahead to the biggest story of the 2021 offseason as Aaron Rodgers enters the final year of his contract. The Organization and the player have seemed to be at odds the past few seasons.
Rodgers is unhappy with the lack of personnel improvement on the offensive end. The Packers responded to Rodgers’ request for offensive weapons in the draft, by using a first rounder to draft his replacement.
After an offseason that saw Tom Brady leave New England after 20 years with the organization. We could be seeing Aaron Rodgers take his last snaps as a Packer this season.
No at +240 looks mighty intriguing if you are reading the tea leaves.
Will Bill Belichick be the head coach of the New England Patriots in 2021?
Another intriguing off-season storyline to look after. Rumors are swirling about Bill Belichick’s future in New England after the departure of Tom Brady. Will he retire? Could we see the cut off sleeves on another team’s sideline?
There’s a few things to consider when pondering Belichick’s future plans. The first being that Belichick the coach is only 56 wins away from breaking Don Shula’s wins record, a record he’s said that he’d like to break. Belichick the coach also is able to have his kids on he coach staff in New England, and seems to be grooming Steve to possibly take over one day.
The second being, the likelihood of Belichick the GM is unlikely to want to acquire another GM’s mess to clean up. Belichick is fully in control of Patriots personnel, don’t see him giving that up.
