Top NFL Prop Bets In 2019
In football, you can bet on everything. Moneyline, spread, and totals bets are the traditional ones, but there are always NFL prop bets, including those this 2019 that Nitrogen Sports Blog will be breaking down below.
Regular Season Rushing Yards
2018 stats: missed season due to holdout
After missing the entire season last year, Le’Veon Bell should be fresh and healthy heading into 2019. The New York Jets are expected to have a rushing-focused offense with Bell as the focal point. Bell has been enthusiastic about head coach Adam Gase’s system and even told reporters that it is the perfect situation for him to thrive.
With a very fresh pair of legs and playing within a new atmosphere, it would be interesting to see how Bell will fare with respect to the NFL prop bets this 2019.
2018 stats: 1,307 rushing yards, 11 rushing touchdowns
The Giants knew they were getting a game-changer when they drafted Saquon Barkley. He showed off his next-level skill set right out of the gate. But the Giants tempered his explosive debut season a little by easing off his touches towards the end of the season. This year the Giants will let Barkley lose a little more often as they try to make a playoff run.
2018 stats: zero NFL stats
Welcome to the NFL — and to the world of NFL prop bets this 2019 — Kyler Murray. A lot of fuss has been made about Murray’s height. But there should be more buzz about his mythical speed. Murray never ran a 40-yard dash for NFL scouts, but his highlight reel speaks for itself. Legend has it that he ran a stunning 4.3-second 40-yard dash college.
The Cardinals didn’t need any confirmation to draft the speedy quarterback with the first overall pick in the NFL draft. Now Murray will be the man in Arizona.
2018 stats: 695 rushing yards, five rushing touchdowns
Lamar Jackson put up some gaudy rushing totals in 2018. He broke Michael Vick’s record for most rushing yards by a quarterback without starting a game until week 11. According to advanced analytics, he was the best 21-year-old QB of all time. Now he’ll have the starting job from week one, and a playbook designed around him.
Regular Season Receiving Yards
2018 stats: 1,572 receiving yards, 11 receiving touchdowns
In 2018 DeAndre Hopkins put up a career-high in receiving yards. He also had 11 games with more than 10 targets and 11 games with more than 100 yards. Watkins was definitely aided by a full season of Deshaun Watson at QB. Now they’ll look to build on their chemistry and tally up even more catches, yards and touchdowns in 2019.
2018 stats: 1,405 receiving yards, nine receiving touchdowns
After leading the league with an 85 percent catch rate, Thomas is ready for another strong campaign. He’s Drew Brees’ favorite target and often takes advantage of defenses that are too focused on trying to stop Alvin Kamara. Will he be able to cover the line set by the NFL prop bets this 2019, though?
2018 stats: 1.072 receiving yards, six receiving touchdowns
Odell Beckham Jr might miss the Big Apple, but now in Cleveland, he might be part of a much more explosive team. He’ll be the top receiver on a deep team and could take advantage of defenses being spread too thin.
Regular Season Passing Yards
2018 stats: 3,072 passing yards, 27 passing touchdowns, 14 interceptions
Baker Mayfield might have a lot to say, but he backs it up. Baker and the Browns are ready to take on the contenders with their explosive and deep offense. Expect the maverick Mayfield to put his money where his mouth is.
2018 stats: 4,355 passing yards, 27 passing touchdowns, 11 interceptions
Tom Brady is as automatic as the sun rising. Year in and year out he puts up stats that leave him in the middle of the MVP discussion. Heading into the 2019 season, it looks like Brady will have the pleasure of throwing to as good of a receiving corps as the Pats have had in a long time. The reinstated Josh Gordon will join Brady’s favorite target Julian Edelman to form a dangerous tandem.
2018 stats: 5,097 passing yards, 50 passing touchdowns, 12 interceptions
Many NFL insiders are predicting that Pat Mahomes will come back down to earth a little after his phenomenal breakout season last year. But he was so good in 2018 that a little drop off would still leave Mahomes in the MVP stratosphere.
It’s high time to make your NFL prop bets 2019 picks with the new football season about to start. But it’s hardly the only one that should be getting you excited for the 2019 NFL campaign.
