It’s time for another round of prop betting picks, and to close out Week 5 of the NFL season, there are some nice NFL Odds from bet365 sportsbook. Here are my three best NFL Picks for tonight’s Redskins and Seahawks game.

Russell Wilson O/U 223.5 Passing Yards
The Seahawks have been somewhat inconsistent on the road this season, but going into Washington with an extra day of rest should really help out this offense. The Washington defense isn’t bad, but it is far from good either. Their passing defense has been an area of weakness for them the entire season, and I think that’s where the Seahawks will choose to exploit Washington. While they will still run the crap out of the ball with Marshawn Lynch, I could see Russell Wilson throwing the ball a little more than usual tonight. The Skins are giving up nearly 240 passing yards per game this season, and in their last two games, the Skins have given up 625 passing yards and seven touchdowns. While the Seahawks aren’t a passing offense like the Giants or Eagles, they could still hit some big plays to Percy Harvin to aid their passing numbers here. 223 passing yards is a little low either way, so take the over for your NFL picks.

NFL Pick: OVER 223 ½ passing yards (-135)

 

Roy Helu O/U 34.5 Total Yards
The Seahawks should obviously control the ground game in Washington tonight, and if that’s the case, I doubt Roy Helu gets very far tonight. With that being said, if the Redskins get down early and have to pass, then Roy Helu is gold tonight in the NFL Prop Odds. Bet365 has him at only 34 ½ total yards tonight, and if Washington gets down, he may be forced to get eight to 10 touches as the passing and hurry-up tail back. At 34 ½ total yards, this prop is a steal for the over. The chalk isn’t bad at -125, and furthermore the Seahawks could still give up some production here. Even though they have only played three games, the Seahawks have given up 18 receptions to opposing running backs. Helu should be in tonight enough to touch the ball at least five to six times, which means that he could very well be a great play on the over here.

NFL Pick: OVER 34 ½ total yards (-125)

 

Team to Win Both Halves
Even though I think Helu could have a solid game, the Hawks are going to dominate the Redskins here. If indeed that happens, and the Seahawks are ahead at half and the end of the game, their odds to win both halves are great from Bet365. At +125, this could be the best prop value of the night. The Redskins are going to have to play perfect football tonight to even have a chance to cover this game, and even at home, I doubt that’s possible. Washington’s defense is not great and the Hawks should be able to have a balanced attack with both the run and pass tonight. Look for Wilson to throw the ball 30 or more times tonight, and look for him to lead the way tonight to cash this prop.

NFL Pick: Seahawks win both halves (+125)
