Best Underdog Player Prop Picks for NFL Week 16

Best Underdog Player Prop Picks for NFL Week 16

Hello, everybody! We are very excited about this weekend’s NFL action. There is NFL football for the next three days, with several marquee matchups going down. With big matchups come big players, who are all looking to make a substantial impact on their team’s chances to win and give themselves a better chance at a playoff berth.

After looking at the Saturday and Sunday Slates, we have picked our top three favorite player props, giving us an additional rooting interest during the holidays. Sit back, relax, and enjoy these games while sweating your player props. All three of these plays are found on Underdog.

Happy Holidays, and as always, best of luck to you and your family!

Tee Higgins OVER 56.5 Receiving Yards

With Ja’Marr Chase likely slated to miss this game, Tee Higgins will see an increased target share. While Higgins had a slow start to the season, he has lately started to come into his own, helping the Cincinnati Bengals on their path to the postseason.

The Bengals take on the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday, an AFC North battle that should feature an impressive amount of firepower. The Steelers might have a strong defense, but we expect Higgins to break through for several big plays. We’re so confident in Higgins’ over that we’re willing to bet he’ll hit this total by halftime. Let’s get it!

Greg Zuerlein OVER 1.5 Field Goals Made

We don’t always take kicker props, but when we do, we make sure they are kickers for a less-than-ideal offense. The New York Jets are rolling out Trevor Siemian at quarterback this week, who didn’t inspire confidence in his last outing.

With that in mind, we will bet that Zuerlein will have at least two field goals in this game. We’re assuming that Siemian will have a tough time making headway in this one, especially in the red zone, giving Zuerlein and his consistency an opportunity to hit the over easily.

Jordan Love OVER 232.5 Passing Yards

Are we missing something here? Jordan Love is starting to become a very competent passer for the Green Bay Packers and continues to shine every week.

He has been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL over the past four weeks and will look to continue that trend against the Carolina Panthers. In a game viewed as a must-win for the Packers, we anticipate that Love will pull out the stops to emerge victorious.

We would take the over on this line even if it were set at 280.5 yards. Best of luck!
