Both the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets need to fix some offensive issues and break a two-game losing streak. As such, today’s matchup will be intense and full of playoff implications. As a seasoned sports bettor, I have compiled a list of my favorite prop bets for the game that are sure to make the game even more exciting.
For the Bills-Jets NFL Week 11 game, here are a few prop bets I’ve placed with our friends over at DraftKings Sportsbook:
James Cook - Over 55.5 yards rushing (-110)
The Buffalo Bills have a running back who’s sixth in rushing yards in the entire NFL. And when running back James Cook’s number is called, he moves the ball. He’s averaging 5.1 yards per carry on 120 rushes this season. He’s also added more than 200 yards receiving, and is just as big a part of the offense as anyone. After success on the ground last week, the Bills would be foolish to shy away from the run. Especially because the Jets give up 138.4 yards on the ground per game. That’s bad enough to put them as the second-worst in the NFL. I expect a big day from Jimbo Cook.
Stefon Diggs Over 6.5 Receptions (+105)
There’s been only one game this season where wide receiver Stefon Diggs hasn’t had at least six receptions. Week 1 against the Jets, Diggs had 10 catches. Death, taxes and Stefon Diggs targets are all things you can count on. After an off day last week you can bet that Diggs will be getting targets early and often to get him involved — early and often. Another week of people assuming he doesn’t want to be in Buffalo could lead to some frustrations I’m hoping he takes out on the Jets’ secondary.
Josh Allen over 40+ rushing yards (+180)
Joe Brady really only has one immediate job, and it’s quite simple. Let the Bills’ offense get back to doing the things that made them nearly unstoppable. The Jets’ secondary always gives Allen problem. But as I mentioned earlier when discussing Cook, they can’t defend the run. That includes quarterbacks and the Buffalo Bills have to get back to the point that they remember their quarterback is one of the best runners in football. We should see a heavy dose of RPO action, and Josh should pick enough moments to get involved himself and keep the chains moving.
Prop bets, short for “proposition bets,” are specific wagers made on various events or occurrences within a football game that do not necessarily relate to the final outcome or score. These bets are commonly offered during major football events like the Super Bowl. Prop bets can span a wide range of categories, from player performance and statistics to specific in-game incidents or even elements unrelated to the actual gameplay itself.
If you were to stack these bets for a parlay, your odds would increase to +850.
A parlay is a type of wager where bettors combine two or more individual bets into one larger bet. In order to win a parlay bet, all of the individual bets within the parlay must win. The potential payout for a parlay bet is often higher than if the bets were placed individually, but the risk is also greater since all of the bets must win in order to receive any payout.
As for +850 odds, this is a specific type of odds commonly used in sports betting. When the odds are listed as +850, it means that a bet on that outcome would result in a potential payout of $850 for every $100 wagered. In other words, the bettor would receive $950 if the bet is won (the initial $100 wager, plus the $850 in winnings). In general, the higher the odds, the greater the potential payout, but also the lower the likelihood of the outcome occurring.
We kindly request and encourage all individuals to engage in responsible betting practices. While betting can be a fun and exciting activity, it is crucial to approach it with caution and moderation. Remember to set limits for yourself and stick to them. Only wager an amount of money that you are comfortable losing and never go beyond your means. Additionally, ensure that betting remains a form of entertainment, rather than a means to solve financial or personal problems. Always keep in mind that there are risks involved, so it is essential to bet responsibly for your own well-being.
