PrizePicks is a new fantasy platform focusing on player props. Unlike other DFS platforms, PrizePicks provides odds for college football players and creates over/unders on their statistical totals and fantasy points. Using the Awesemo projections, matchups, and other tools, PrizePicks provides a fun and profitable game play. Here are a few of the best PrizePicks CFB options for Friday’s college football DFS slate.
Week 2 PrizePicks CFB Over/Unders | Friday, Sept. 10
Shermari Jones – Over 68.5 Yards Rushing
With C.J. Marable off to the NFL, Shermari Jones forms a committee with Reese White in the Coastal Carolina backfield. Coastal Carolina historically plays run-heavy football. Last year they ranked 118th in pass rate (37.1%), and they passed just 42.9% of the time in their opening game. The Chanticleers are 25.5-point favorites over Kansas, also pointing to a run-heavy approach. Both Jones and White carried nine and seven times, respectively. However, Jones was far more efficient, with 100 yards compared to White’s 62 yards. Jones is also the bigger back. With White having the larger prop on PrizePicks, hitting the over on Jones’ rushing prop makes the most sense here.
Jaivon Heiligh – Under 105.5 Yards Receiving
In the same game, taking a correlated play in Jaivon Heiligh‘s under makes sense. Coastal Carolina will play this game with a run-heavy approach. Heiligh does function as this team’s leading receiver and even notched 133 yards receiving against The Citadel in Week 1. While Coastal Carolina is a massive favorite, Kansas is a better team than The Citadel. Last year Heiligh averaged 89.8 yards receiving per game in the same offense. This does not leave a ton of value, but the under correlated directly with Jones’ over. Taking the two together makes sense on PrizePicks.
Jake Bobo – Over 52.5 Yards Receiving
For those looking at a different pairing option, Jake Bobo is under-projected this week. He picked up right where he left off last year with seven catches for 88 yards on nine targets in Week 1. Bobo was the team’s clear alpha, with the most targets and routes run. This Duke – North Carolina A&T game still does not have a line. Duke dropped a game to Charlotte in their opener, suggesting this spread may open closer than people think. With a potentially close game, Duke should be an uptempo and pass-heavy team.
Justin Garrett – Over 47.5 Yards Receiving
UTEP rolled both New Mexico State and Bethune-Cookman, leading to a depressed pass rate at 32.3%. For reference, last year UTEP passed 46% of the time. UTEP utilizes a narrow target distribution, with Justin Garrett and Jacob Cowing receiving 30.2% and 27.9% of the targets, respectively. With Boise State coming in as 25.5-point underdogs, UTEP should be forced to throw. The lower prop and higher target share mean the over on Garrett makes sense.
