We keep our props money train rolling on Sunday Night Football in a nice NFC battle between the Eagles and Seahawks. With the NFL Odds pretty sharp for this game, looking at prop bets from Bovada sportsbook can bring some extra value to the table.
As we’ve talked about already this season, the Seahawks’ secondary has been decimated with injuries this season, and even though they have still been good against opposing quarterbacks, receivers have been racking up yards against them recently.
Over the last five weeks, the Seahawks’ defense has allowed nearly 200 yards per game to opposing wide receivers. Without Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman locking down one side of the field, opposing offenses have been able to exploit some things through the air.
With the red-hot Eagles coming to town, the Seahawks are only going to be able to slow down so many players. With Zach Ertz and Alshon Jeffery to worry about all game, Nelson Agholor could be the forgotten man streaming down the field in single coverage.
Agholor doesn’t get a large target share in this offense, but the circumstances warrant him getting some more action this week. If the Seahawks are blanketing one or both of the Eagles’ top two weapons, Agholor could see six or seven targets this week in route to cashing the over on his prop bet.
Agholor is averaging 8.6 yards per target this season, so if the volume is there, the value certainly is. Plus, in the four games that Jeffery has been held to less than 40 receiving yards, Agholor is averaging over 70 per game in those contests. That could be what we see tonight, so add the over on the Eagles number two receiver for your NFL picks tonight.Free Sunday Night Football Prop Pick: OVER 32 ½ (-115)
