Three bets stood out above the rest in the 1 p.m. ET window, so let’s see what best NFL prop bets are:
Week 6 Best NFL Player Prop Bets
Taylor Heinicke: Over 260.5 Passing Yards, -110 (Caesars)
Given what we know about this matchup, Heinicke should have his best individual game of the season against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6. After all, they have allowed the third-most passing yards per game (296.4) this season. The will be an increase in opportunities to throw the football, more so than usual with the Chiefs missing their starting RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Because of that, expect Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes to throw more against a Washington Football Team defense that allows the fifth-most passing yards per game (293.4).
According to Awesemo’s Player Props Tool, Heinicke is projected to go about 14 yards over his prop number of 260.5 passing yards. Heinicke has exceeded this number in two of his last four games, with the last one narrowly missing by 13 yards — and that was against a tough New Orleans Saints defense. This game has the highest total (54.5) of any game on the Week 6 slate, making Heinicke’s case that much better.
Austin Ekeler: Over 56.5 Rushing Yards, -114 (FanDuel)
The Los Angeles Chargers run one of the NFL’s fastest pace on offense, allowing more chances to run plays. But more importantly, it gives us an optimistic make sure one of their key players comes through on this prop bet. Ekeler has either exceeded this mark of 56.5 rushing yards in every game this season, or he has missed it by a whisker. Remarkably, Ekeler has rushing totals of 54, 55 and 57, in addition to 117 and 66 in each of the last two weeks. The oddsmakers certainly had a trustworthy median range to go off in this matchup.
According to Awesemo’s Player Props Tool, Ekeler is projected to smash right through his prop total with 81 rushing yards this week. Ekeler going over has an 88% chance of succeeding with a 65% expected return on investment, the latter is the highest for any player in this category. The Baltimore Ravens have allowed seven different running backs to finish in a range of 42-56 rushing yards, and no one has gone over the high mark; Ekeler should very well become the first.
Robby Anderson: Over 3.5 Receptions, -130 (PointsBet)
The juice is a bit more than we’re usually willing to lay, but Anderson is in a great spot against the Minnesota Vikings. For the third straight week, the Carolina Panthers will be without star RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring). His absence will certainly leave a few vacated targets to be spread amongst the Panthers’ receivers, with Anderson serving as a prime candidate to fill in. Over the last two games, Anderson has received a whopping 18 targets in games against the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles.
According to Awesemo’s Player Props Tool, Anderson is projected to have six catches, and it has an 84% chance of succeeding with a 50% expected return on investment. Just last week, a similar type of WR in Amon-Ra St. Brown, of the Detroit Lions, caught seven balls for 65 yards. This is a game where the Vikings are getting some sharp backing this week, and that will likely put the Panthers in more passing scenarios in the second half.
