Three prop bet options for Thursday Night Football that rate favorably per SISBets.com
*Odds courtesy of DraftKings
1) Russell Wilson, under 24.5 completions, -125.
This is the best prop bet on the board tonight. Wilson is averaging just 27.3 passing attempts per game, so the likelihood that he will complete 25 of them is minimal. Through four games he has yet to complete more than 23.
The SIS data predicts Wilson will throw 30 times and complete just 20 for 223 yards.
Based on this information, the actual odds for under 24.5 completions should be -475, but at DraftKings the number is set at -125. The math clearly favors this one.
2) Cooper Kupp, over 6.5 receptions, -145.
Through four games Kupp has been the hottest receiver in the league, producing 431 yards and five touchdowns on 42 targets and 30 receptions. He’s gotten double-digit targets in every game and only once has Kupp caught fewer than seven balls.
The Seahawks’ pass defense hasn’t been very good, yielding the seventh-most completions, fifth-most yards and eighth-most touchdown passes. Kupp and Stafford should be a potent weapon.
Our analysis predicts Kupp will see 12.5 targets, catch 8.9 balls for 102.9 yards. A fair number for the Kupp over should be -363, but we only have to give -145.
3) Robert Woods, under 5.5 receptions, -135.
Woods has been a disappointment this season and through the first four games has yet to catch six balls in a game.
The primary reason is opportunity.
Last season he averaged 8.1 targets, but through for games this season he’s getting only 6.3 targets.
The SIS prediction analysis says he will see 5.6 targets, catch 3.8 balls for 42.5 yards.
If correct, a fair number for the under would be -442, yet at DraftKings the number is set at -135.
