It’s another big week of player props in the NFL, and there are several from bet365 that have some value. Here are my three best NFL Picks when it comes to player props this weekend.
Joique Bell O/U 65.5 rushing yards
Detroit Lions vs. Minnesota Vikings
The Lions’ rushing game has been a disappointment this season to date, and now with Reggie Bush injured, there is some more doubt in it here in Week 6. Calvin Johnson also looks doubtful for this week’s game, which means that the running game is going to have to get going this week. Enter Joique Bell, who was not playing last week due to a concussion, but looks to be ready to shoulder a much bigger load of the Lions offense this week. At bet365, his over/under for rushing yards is quite low. Even though the Lions are a pass-oriented team, without Bush and Megatron, they are going to have to run the ball a lot more, which means that Bell should see the ball at least 20 times. His rushing yards should exceed 65 in a game where the Vikings are giving up nearly 122 rushing yards per game, so take the over and add it to your NFL Picks with confidence.

Eddie Lacy TD Scored
Green Bay Packers vs. Miami Dolphins
Eddie Lacy has been one of the bigger mysteries of the Packers this season, but overall he hasn’t played bad. However there is word out right now that he could be splitting carries with James Starks. I think this is total crap. There is no reason the Packers would split carries, especially if Lacy is 100% healthy. Lacy is one of the more talented backs in the NFL right now, and Starks is, well, not. This week the Packers have a pretty tough game against the Dolphins, however I expect Lacy to have a big game, and for him to definitely not split carries. Starks is not a bad running back, but he brings very little other than some good pass protection to the Packers. Lacy is not only a capable runner, but he can catch passes too. His NFL Odds value of getting a touchdown in this game is much better than what bet365 is giving him credit for, and I’m taking a shot.

Andy Dalton O/U 245.5 passing yards
Carolina Panthers vs. Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals are in a tough spot this week with their offense, and even though the Panthers’ defense has been nothing spectacular this season, the Bengals will also be missing their number one receiving option Sunday as well. AJ Green re-aggravated a toe injury he had been nursing since the offseason, and now without him, the Bengals may be hard pressed to pass the ball. The Panthers’ secondary is still playing somewhat well, and without Green, the Bengals have a whole lot of nothing at receiver. They are going to be forced to run the ball a ton in this game, and that could have a negative impact on Dalton’s passing yards. I think bet365 has his NFL Odds way too high considering the injury to Green, so take the under and add it to your NFL Picks.
Free NFL Player Props Pick: UNDER 245.5 passing yards (-115)
