This week, Dave Miller and I are teaming up to give you our best Eagles player prop advice. We thought it might be fun to continually check/compare our favorite player prop bets and see how we fare! Since I had released some props last week, I will offer my track record as tribute as we go forward:
Kenneth Mykel Smith - 2/4
These lines are taken from DraftKings sportsbook. We hope the information here still applies relatively to your other sports betting accounts. Let's dive into our picks for this week!
Carson Wentz OVER 250.5 -125
Bettor: Kenneth Mykel Smith and Dave Miller
Carson has now gone over 250.5 3 out of 8 weeks, thanks to last week. Dave and Myke both agree, at least for now, this train shows no signs of slowing. In the last 3 weeks, Wentz is 2/3 on this line. With injuries in the backfield and more passing weapons returning, we’re both betting the over.
Carson Wentz first TD scorer +1100
Bettor: Dave Miller
Carson Wentz has scored on five occasions this season. For three of them, his rushing TD was the Eagles’ first of the game. In our two wins, he’s scored the first TD too!
Carson OVER 1.5 TDs -134 Bettor: Kenneth Mykel Smith
Carson has hit this line 4/7 times this year. He has gone 3/3 in his last 3 games. He is trending upwards and getting passing options back against a pitiful Cowboys defense.
Boston Scott OVER 58.5 rushing yards +105
Bettor: Dave Miller
Dallas has allowed a rusher to have 60+ yards in every game this season. I believe Boston will be allowed to carry the load after coming up big Thursday.
Boston Scott UNDER 14.5 rushing attempts +106
Bettor: Kenneth Mykel Smith
I’m not crazy about this one, but last week Scott had 12 rushing attempts even in a close game. It’s hard to want to take the over, because Doug doesn’t run often, and with a committee approach since they will be without Sanders, I’m taking the under. (Though, I should note, if you think the Eagles run away with this game, take the over.)
Dallas Goedert to score +250 Bettor: Kenneth Mykel Smith and Dave Miller
This one is just a feeling, but Dallas Goedert returns into a TE1 position. Goedert is 4/4 TDs in the last 4 Cowboys games. I believe he’s underrated going into tonight. With how often he is schemed in scoring plays, I love the value of this bet.
As of right now:
Kenneth Mykel Smith: 0/4
Dave Miller: 0/4
