It’s another week in the NFL, and with all of the bye weeks to deal with, finding valuable NFL Odds is difficult. However courtesy of bet365, I have found three nice player props that I am adding to my NFL Picks. Plus, I get to share them with you for free.

Travis Kelce TD Scored
The Chiefs don’t have a lot of weapons in the passing game and their offense in general is predicated on the running of Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis. However their young tight end, Travis Kelce is an exceptional talent, and he has exceptional NFL Odds this week to score a touchdown. The New York Jets are the worst team in the NFL against opposing quarterbacks, and most of that has been because of the tight ends. Nearly half of the touchdowns the Jets secondary has given up this season have been to opposing tight ends, and with Kelce’s talent of getting into the end zone, he should have little problem besting the Jets’ defense this week. Take Kelce to score a touchdown, as the Jets have given up all nine of those touchdowns in the last six weeks. Kelce’s NFL Odds of +115 are too good to pass on.

My Pick: Kelce TD Scored (+115)

 

Tom Brady O/U 280 ½ passing yards
The marquee matchup of the season is the Patriots vs. Broncos, and Tom Brady’s passing yards total is way too low for a game like this. Passing may be the only way either of these teams are able to move the ball on one another. The Broncos’ run defense is solid up front, as is the Patriots. While we know the Broncos are going to throw the ball, they are doing it against a tough secondary, while the Patriots will be throwing against a shakier secondary. The Broncos are giving up nearly 250 passing yards per game, and with Rob Gronkowski back to full speed, the Patriots’ offense looks like they are back to throwing the pill all over. Brady had 354 passing yards against the Bears last week, and while the Broncos’ secondary isn’t as bad as the Bears’, they aren’t much better. Despite the large amount of chalk here, I am going to offer as the second of our free NFL picks.

My Pick: Brady OVER 280 ½ passing yards (-135)

 

LeSean McCoy O/U 78 ½ rush yards
The Eagles’ offense hasn’t exactly been firing on all cylinders recently, and a lot of it has been the offensive line, and the subsequent abandonment of the running game. LeSean McCoy has been running the ball more over the last two weeks, and the offense of the Eagles has been better. Even though they lost last week to the Cardinals, McCoy ran the ball well, rushing 21 times for 83 yards. The week before that he went for 149 yards. Even though fantasy football owners are still frustrated with his lack of red zone touches for McCoy, at least his touches are trending upward. As long as he gets 20 rushing attempts this week against the Texans, he should go over. The Texans’ run defense is much better than their secondary, but if Foles can start to throw the ball more accurately, it’s going to open up a ton of lanes for McCoy. Take the over and add it to your NFL Picks.

My Pick: McCoy OVER 78 ½ rush yards (-120)
