Let’s take a look at some of our favorite props and their odds to take advantage of at PointsBet.
Trevor Lawrence Jags Props Bets
The first overall pick in the NFL Draft was Trevor Lawrence to the Jaguars, and he will become the instant starter in Urban Meyer and Darren Bevell’s offense that caters to the quarterbacks strengths. While Lawrence is considered a generational prospect, will his numbers in year one be off the charts? You can bet on that at PointsBet. Here’s a look at some of Lawrence’s props offered at PointsBet.
The first prop available at PointsBet is Trevor Lawrence’s passing yards, which is set at a high number for a rookie at 4150.5.
Take the Under
Despite Lawrence’s projected prowess, we lean under here at 4150.5. Only two quarterbacks in NFL history have thrown for more than 4150.5 yards in a season: Andrew Luck and Justin Herbert. Both threw 595 times or more, and averaged nearly 40 passing attempts per game. With the Jaguars likely focusing on the ground more than the 2012 Colts and 2020 Chargers, this is a solid under choice for Lawrence’s first season, despite the extra game.
Another Lawrence prop available is passing touchdowns, which is set at 24.5.
We Like The Over
The over is a solid bet here for Lawrence, as this is just over 1.5 TD passes per game over a 16-game season. With 17 games on the docket for the 2021 season, 1.5 TD passes per game would take Lawrence on the over. Despite the Jaguars’ poor passing attack last season with mediocre QB play, they still threw for 25 touchdowns in 16 games.
Najee Harris Steelers Props for 2021
Without a doubt, the most popular running back for this year’s draft and prop betting will be Najee Harris. Given that he was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers as the likely featured back, his props were expected to be a high number. PointsBet did not disappoint, as Harris’ rushing yards prop opened at 900.5.
Take The Over
While there has been a massive history of running backs rushing for over 900 yards in their rookie season, running back production is quite different now with the way the game has moved. With that said, the 17th game may give Harris a boost in total rushing yards. In order to hit 901 yards, Harris would need to average 53 rushing yards per game over an entire season.
Given that James Conner ran for 721 yards in just 13 games while receiving only 169 carries, the over is a safe bet for Harris in 2021. If Harris is the true workhorse the Steelers are rumored to be using him as, 900 rushing yards will be an easy wager assuming he stays healthy.
