Critical division matchups highlight the Week 8 NFL schedule, and there will be numerous NFL prop bets available on every game. The Buccaneers (6-1) will visit the Saints (4-2) for an NFC South showdown, while the Browns (4-2) host the Steelers (3-3) in a crucial AFC North battle. Meanwhile, Rams receiver Cooper Kupp (809 yards) will face a porous Texans defense as he tries to break the all-time season receiving mark. Titans running back Derrick Henry (869 yards) is on pace for an unprecedented second consecutive 2,000-yard season when Tennessee visits the Colts. You can wager on how any of these players will fare or make plenty of other NFL props.
Caesars Sportsbook lists the Over-Under on Kupp's receiving yards at 95.5 (-115) in its latest Week 8 NFL odds, while the number on Henry's rushing yards is 103.5 (-115). There are plenty of NFL player props to target, so pick the teams or players you know and start digging for value. Before making any Week 8 NFL prop bets, you need to see the top NFL picks and predictions from NFL props expert Alex Selesnick.
Over the past two seasons, Selesnick (aka PropStarz) is up 123 units on NFL props and futures plays. For a $100 bettor, that's a return of more than $12,000. PropStarz specializes in NFL and NBA prop betting, where he implements a combination of research, statistical analysis and mathematical modeling.
Through seven weeks, PropStarz is a stunning 23-12 on his NFL prop picks for SportsLine, and he cashed in on three of his five picks last week. He was on the money when he said Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson would go over the 230.5 passing yards (-115) listed at Caesars Sportsbook.
"What I don't think is getting enough attention is Jackson's evolution as a QB," PropStarz said of the former MVP before the game against the Bengals. "We all know about his legs, but he has made a huge leap as a passer."
The game was ugly for the Ravens in the 41-17 loss, but Jackson threw for 257 yards despite being pulled midway through the fourth quarter. Baltimore might have lost the game, but Jackson won that bet for PropStarz and anyone who followed his advice.
Now, after sifting through hundreds of available Week 8 NFL prop bets, PropStarz has found five more NFL picks he loves. He's only sharing his coveted NFL prop picks at SportsLine.
Top 2021 Week 8 NFL prop picks
One Week 8 NFL prop bet PropStarz is backing: Giants quarterback Daniel Jones goes over 241.5 passing yards (-115) on Monday Night Football against Kansas City. The Chiefs' defense has been subpar, and the offense's carelessness with the ball has been giving opponents extra opportunities. Jones has at least 242 passing yards in five of his six full games. Kansas City yields 275.7 passing yards per game (26th in the NFL), and Jones is likely to have to carry the offense. The Giants are only running for 92 yards per game (26th in the NFL), and running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) could miss another game.
New York's receiving corps is dealing with injuries, but Darius Slayton returned last week and had five receptions for 63 yards. Dante Pettis also has stepped up, catching 10 passes for 87 yards and a TD, and Jones and the coaching staff appear to be gaining confidence in him. Monday night's game could have Jones "with the healthiest supporting cast he has had this season," PropStarz told SportsLine.
