Our NFL props continue to kill it as we locked and loaded on Lamar Jackson going over in rushing yards and Jameis Winston going pickless last week. Let’s check out a few goodies for Week 13 and keep cashing!

Total Passing Yards in Week 13: Cody Kessler
  • Over 235.5 (-120)
  • Under 235.5 (-120)

Jacksonville Jaguars fans breathed a collective sigh of relief when head coach Doug Marrone not only benched Blake Bortles in favor of Cody Kessler this week but fired offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett. If that doesn’t jumpstart this moribund offense then the Jags’ brass should take a wrecking ball to the organization and start from scratch.

Jacksonville is in the midst of a seven-game losing streak and what began as a season to finish what they started last year, and claim the AFC title, has turned into an utter disaster. Cody Kessler will get the start as a third-year veteran and 13 games to his credit, the majority with Cleveland where he was selected by the Browns in the third round of the ’16 draft. By all accounts he is a solid passer and in his rookie season completed over 65 percent of his passes in his nine appearances.

Kessler will be tasked with moving the chains against the 20th ranked Indianapolis pass defense and I believe the shackles will be off as Marrone will be doing anything to snap this skid. The NFL odds being offered on this prop might seem a bit high but expect a wide open game plan from the Jags.

Most Consecutive Completions in Week 13: Philip Rivers
  • Over 6 (-120)
  • Under 6 (-120)

Last week, the Chargers' Philip Rivers broke records for the most consecutive completions to start a game as well as the highest completion percentage in an NFL game in the Chargers’ 45-10 thrashing of the Arizona Cardinals last week. Despite the Cardinals’ 2-9 record, their pass defense was ranked in the top five prior to their meeting with the Bolts which makes Rivers’ accomplishments even more stunning. Of course, the Cards have suffered injuries to their defensive unit but nonetheless, Rivers was at an historic best on Sunday.

So now this prop is inviting us, daring us even, to bet that he does it again. Well maybe not 25 straight freakin’ passes but a much more modest six consecutive completions during the course of the game. Seems like ice cream for Rivers to rip six straight after shredding the Cards but I’m going the other way in this week’s matchup in Pittsburgh. The Steelers own the sixth ranked pass defense and they will be laser focused on Rivers and the LA passing attack. This Pittsburgh pass defense is cookin’, having held their last three opponents to less than 200 passing yards. Let’s be a bit contrarian and go under six straight completions for Phillip Rivers in our NFL picks this Sunday.
