There are quite a few props that have exploitable numbers for the Week 16 NFC East showdown. Dak Prescott’s passing yards is 285.5, and despite injury reports this week he is going to start, and was not even on the Cowboys’ final injury report. That 285.5 is high, but Prescott has thrown for over that many times this season. Carson Wentz at 255.5 is very interesting, given the Eagles will need to find success through the air to score this week.
Amari Cooper’s yardage prop at only 68.5 is quite attractive, but also Ezekiel Elliott’s receiving yards prop at 25.5, and Miles Sanders rushing props at 59.5 is also low assuming no Jordan Howard again.
To Score a Touchdown
|Player||Odds to Score a Touchdown|
The overwhelming favorite is Ezekiel Elliott to score a TD at -200, but if Jordan Howard is out (likely), Miles Sanders at -121 is a solid bet as well.
Amari Cooper at +165 is the best value on the table with the Eagles’ struggles against receivers, with Michael Gallup at +260 being fun to bet at 2.6x return.
