I pick my favorite DraftKings Sportsbook player prop bets to consider for Week 18 Saturday Football

We’ve got two NFL games on tap this Saturday on the last regular season weekend of the season. In the afternoon game, the Baltimore Ravens host the Pittsburgh Steelers, and in the nightcap, the Indianapolis Colts host the Houston Texans. Let’s take a look at some of my favorite player prop bets for these games. All odds come courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Ravens vs. Steelers

Mason Rudolph, Under 185.5 passing yards (-115)

Mason Rudolph stinks. That, and terrible weather conditions, with drenching rains and gusty winds, should keep Rudolph’s passing totals down. I’ll take the under for Mason Rudolph and 185.5 passing yards.

Tyler Huntley, Under 158.5 passing yards (-115)

Tyler Huntley runs the ball almost as much as he passes it. With the Ravens having nothing to play for and likely to rest multiple starters, together with terrible weather conditions, I don’t expect Huntley to do much through the air. I’ll take the under for Tyler Huntley and 158.5 passing yards.

Texans vs. Colts

Gardner Minshew, Under 238.5 passing yards (-115)

Gardner Minshew has passed for 240 yards or less in 7 of his last 9 games. I’ll take the under for Gardner Minshew and 238.5 passing yards.

C.J. Stroud, Over 262.5 passing yards (-115)

C.J. Stroud has struggled in his last two games, but before that he passed for 270+ yards in five straight games. I expect Stroud to get back on track against a mediocre Colts pass defense. I’ll take the over for C.J. Stroud and 262.5 passing yards.

Nico Collins, Over 74.5 receiving yards (-140)

When C.J. Stroud plays, Nico Collins shines. That’s especially true with Tank Dell out. I’ll take the over for Nico Collins and 74.5 receiving yards.
