  • Tony Pollard ranks fifth among qualified running backs in yards per route run this season
  • Read below for analysis and our favorite Raiders-Cowboys player prop bets

The theme of Thursday’s NFL Thanksgiving tripleheader is injuries. All three of the contests are plagued by them, including the late afternoon tilt between Las Vegas and Dallas. The Cowboys side is especially interesting given the abundance of skilled players who are either out, questionable or trying to play through pain.

These injuries have opened up some value in the player prop market, and we’re going to try to capitalize on that with our picks below.

Odds as of Nov. 24th at FanDuel and DraftKings.

Dallas is currently a 7.5-point favorite, in a game that features a total of 51.5. Amari Cooper is out due to COVID, Blake Jarwin is done for the season, CeeDee Lamb is questionable after suffering a concussion four days ago, while Ezekiel Elliott is trying to play through a knee injury.

Add it all up, and we should see increased playing time for sophomore RB Tony Pollard.

Prop #1: Tony Pollard Over 58.5 Rushing/Receiving Yards

It doesn’t take an NFL scout to notice the disparity in explosiveness between Pollard and Elliott. It’s even more evident now that Elliott is nursing this knee issue. Pollard’s playing time has already been trending up, playing an average of 38% of the team’s offensive snaps over the past three weeks. Now that a short week is on deck, he should see even more opportunity.

Pollard averages a full yard more than Elliott per rush, and 2.5 yards more per reception. He ranks fifth among all qualified RB’s in yards per route run, and only six teams have given up more production to enemy running backs than Las Vegas.

Pollard has racked up at least 70 total yards in back-to-back outings, and has cleared 63 total yards in seven of 10 contests.

Picks: Tony Pollard Over 58.5 Rushing/Receiving yards, Over 13.5 Receiving Yards

Prop #2: Schult To Score 1st TD

One look at the odds and it’s clear bookmakers are expecting Dallas to strike first. Five of the six players with the shortest first TD odds are Cowboys, including Dalton Schultz.

The third-year tight end is enjoying a breakout campaign, and has virtually no competition at his position with Jarwin down for the season. Schultz led the all Dallas pass catchers in receptions, receiving yards and routes run in Week 11, while playing 99% of the offensive snaps.

Now he catches a Raiders defense that has struggled all season versus tight ends. Las Vegas has allowed the third most production to enemy tight ends, coughing up five touchdowns to that position in their last seven games.

On the other side of the ball, fellow tight end Darren Waller is also a strong anytime TD bet. Waller is fresh off his best game since Week 1 on Sunday, hauling in seven catches for 116 yards.

He’s found the end zone only twice this season, but with the Las Vegas wide receivers facing difficult matchups on the outside, he should be able to eat over the middle. Dallas has allowed the 11th most production to enemy tight ends, further elevating Waller’s ceiling.

Picks: Dalton Schult 1st TD (+1200), Darren Waller Anytime TD (+175)
