Week 15 is here as the Atlanta Falcons will head to Charlotte and face their divisional foe, the Carolina Panthers. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, as the Falcons look to keep their playoff hopes alive.
There’s some interesting prop bets this week in this divisional matchup. Before making any decisions though, let’s look at some more numbers, graciously provided by our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook.
Desmond Ridder: Over 0.5 passing touchdowns (-195)
You would think this is closer to a safe bet, but this remains tough. Desmond Ridder has only thrown 2+ touchdowns in one game this season, but does have three straight games of throwing one touchdown. This week, all he needs is one touchdown. Will he do it? No clue. But I would like to think he’s capable of extending that streak to four games against a one-win Carolina team.
Desmond Ridder: Over 0.5 interceptions (-140)
While I am confident that Ridder will have a passing touchdown, I am also confident that he will throw at least one interception. Ridder has thrown three interceptions over the last three games.
Bijan Robinson: Over 62.5 rushing yards (-115)
This is a lot more of a toss up, but I think the Falcons run all over Carolina on Sunday. The Panthers are one of the worst teams against the run, and the Falcons just happen to be a very good rushing team. It’s worth noting that Bijan has only gone over 63 rushing yards in a game in one of the last three games. I think he clears 80+ against the Panthers.
Bijan Robinson: Over 18.5 receiving yards (-115)
This seems like a safe prop bet this week. Over the last three games, Bijan has had 26+ receiving yards in each game. He can honestly clear 19 yards on one play. I think he does is on Sunday.
Drake London: Over 48.5 receiving yards (-115)
Drake London went bonkers last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers recording 172 yards through the air. This week, he needs 49 yards to clear this prop bet. I think he does it.
