I know it's early but I have been looking at props for both games this weekend. If anyone wants to chime in on what they like, we might be able to generate some winners!
With the Jets/Colts a few props that stood out to me:
Mark Sanchez (Jets) Total Touchdown Passes+Interceptions Thrown - over 2.5 (+140)
Dallas Clark (Colts) Total Receiving Yards - over 67.5 (-130)
Pierre Garcon (Colts) Total Receptions - over 3.5 (-115)
Jets Total Points - under 16.5 (-115) (would love to find 17)
Jets vs Colts - Longest Touchdown of the Game - over 40.5 (-115)
Peyton Manning (Colts) Total Touchdown Passes - over 1.5 (-180)
Peyton Manning (Colts) Longest Completion - over 30.5 yards (-125)
The bold ones are my favorites in the list. I'd like to narrow this down to 3-4 plays. I like the value in the Sanchez prop, I think he'll throw two picks and a td to win that one. Also, Manning will get atleast 2 td's so even though it's a lot of juice I'm very confident with that pick. Also, because Revis will be on Wayne I think Garcon will get atleast 4 catches and Clark should generate some yards as well.
For the Vikes/Saints, I like:
Brett Favre (Vikings) Total Passing Yards - over 272.5 (-115)
Vikings Total Points - over 24.5 (-115)
Vikings vs Saints - Total Sacks by Both Teams - over 4 (-125)
Vikings vs Saints - Will there be Overtime - Yes +1200 (Value bet!!)
Drew Brees (Saints) Total Completions - over 23 (-115)
Drew Brees (Saints) Total Passing Yards - over 280.5 (-115)
Drew Brees (Saints) Longest Completion - over 35.5 yards (-115)
Drew Brees (Saints) Total Touchdown Passes - over 2.5 (+180)
Going to narrow this down by gametime but I obviously see a very high scoring game. Both teams are very capable of getting into the 30's. There should be a lot of big plays and lots of yards. Brees will torch our secondary and with New Orleans owning the #21 defense against the run and #24 against the pass, Vikes will have a field day as well. I like both QB's to throw for 300+.
There it is, let me know what you guys think!!
