Rather than needing to do the player prop research yourself, I crunched the numbers, did some math, and checked the odds at our top-rated sportsbooks. For me, nothing is more enjoyable than searching for value and finding edges in betting lines. It's not always easy to love what the math tells you, but I've compiled a power ranking of NFL player props to get behind for Week 2.
Here are my 10 favorite player prop bets for Week 2 of the NFL season (odds via Caesars Sportsbook, FanDuel, and DraftKings Sportsbook).
NFL Player Props for Week 2
10. Lance Under 38.5 rushing yards (+106 via Caesars)
With the total sitting at 38.5 and Trey Lance running 13 times for 54 yards in Week 1, this seems like an easy decision to bet the Over. But the Under is the better play.
Pro Football Focus projects Lance to rush for 34 yards on Sunday, which isn't much lower than the total here. However, you must also take into account the price point. Because of the heavy juice on the Over, we can get +106 on the Under, which makes it a much more valuable bet.
9. Harris Over 53.5 rushing yards (-103 via Caesars)
When Najee Harris was originally diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain, it was anticipated that he'd be out for 4-6 weeks. His decision to play in Week 2 really surprised some people, resulting in Harris' rushing total being set lower than it should be as bettors look to fade him.
This is basically a bet on whether he's truly healthy. If Harris is ready to play, then this prop is set too low at 53.5 and should be trading closer to 68.5.
8. McManus Over 7.5 kicking points (-115 via DraftKings)
Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus will get plenty of opportunities to score points on Sunday when the Houston Texans visit the Denver Broncos as 10-point underdogs. McManus is trading as high as -145 to go Over 7.5 at other sportsbooks, while DraftKings is pricing him at -115.
Head coach Nathaniel Hackett isn't afraid to allow McManus to kick it from a distance of 60-plus yards.
