I’m not sure which of the betting gods I have upset, but it’s clear they are not happy with me.
Last week I put forth two player props that I thought were absolutely foolproof. Aaron Rodgers hit the over on his passing yards, and Aaron Jones saw seven targets against the Lions. He turned those targets into four catches for … 13 yards.
Making matters worse, he dropped what would have been a 30+ yard touchdown that would have given me the over on his receiving yards total, as well.
Instead, I’m forced to settle for another 1-1 week.
Tonight, my Jets host the Patriots as 10-point underdogs on Monday Night Football, with kickoff scheduled for 8:15pm ET (October 21). Here are the two props I’m playing this week.
Prop #1: Le’Veon Bell Rushing Yards

*All odds taken October 21
When these two teams met in Week 3, the Jets started Luke Falk at QB. New England knew a heavy dose of Le’Veon Bell was coming their way, and they limited him to 35 yards on 18 carries.
But the Patriots just spent the week watching film of Sam Darnold torching the Cowboys defense for 338 yards and two touchdowns last week.

Bill Belichick is going to scheme his defense to prevent the big play through the air and try to make Darnold uncomfortable on Monday night.
The result will be some running lanes for Bell. One of the most elusive backs in the league should have no problem eclipsing 57 yards on the ground tonight.
Prop #2: Robby Anderson Receiving Yards

Robby Anderson has proven to be a dangerous deep threat in the NFL. Again, Belichick is not going to allow New York to score points quickly. Instead, he’ll force them to dink-and-dunk their way down the field, having to string together a series of great plays to put points on the board.
As a result, Anderson’s numbers are going to suffer.
