Week 8 gets underway with Thursday Night Football, and while I do lean to the Panthers at home, I prefer playing some props in this one. Using the help of OddsShopper to locate the best plays and prices, let’s analyze some NFL picks.

NFL Pick: Todd Gurley: Anytime Touchdown Scorer (-121)
I’ve seen this one priced as high as -160 on some books, so getting -121 on DraftKings offers us some great value to begin with. The fear is that after scoring seven touchdowns in seven games (even though one was by accident), Gurley will have some regression, but I think that regression may hold off another week. Gurley gets an ideal matchup against the Panthers, who have one of the worst rush defenses in the NFL and have given up 10 rushing touchdowns through seven games. Gurley’s been heavily involved in Atlanta’s game plan in the red zone, scoring in five of seven games thus far. Gurley posted an impressive 150 yards with a touchdown on 18 touches against Carolina back in Week 5 and has seen at least 23 touches in each of the last two weeks.

NFL Pick: D.J. Moore Receiving Yards: OVER 67.5 (-125)
I’ll admit, I think picking between this prop and Robby Anderson to go over 75.5 yards is a very tough call. But Moore’s been making some big plays recently, so I’ll take him at the lower number if I have to pick between the two. Moore has exactly 93 yards in three straight games, a streak that started in the previous matchup against the Falcons. We’re going to see the Falcons’ secondary exposed in this game, so I don’t hate taking Moore and Anderson’s overs and just hoping to hit both. I don’t think we’ll do worse than a split on those.
OddsShopper has this one as low as 67.5 at Sugar House and DraftKings.
