NFL Prop Shop: Week 17
It's hard to believe, but the NFL regular season will wrap up with a full slate of divisional matchups on Sunday.
Here are four prop bets to consider as we aim to head into the postseason on a winning note.
Most passing yards
Joe Flacco vs. Andy Dalton: Take Dalton
I don't like the look of this Ravens offense right now, even after that beatdown of the Giants last Sunday. We should see Baltimore pound away with Ray Rice early and often in this one, making Joe Flacco a bit of an afterthought.
Andy Dalton faced a tougher matchup in Pittsburgh last week, but still managed to throw for 278 yards. With the Bengals ground game still stuck in neutral, look for Dalton to be called upon plenty on Sunday.
Cam Newton vs. Drew Brees: Take Brees
This should be a shootout from start to finish, and with that in mind, I'll give the edge to Brees at home in the dome.
Cam Newton has guided the Panthers to three straight wins, but he's seen his passing yardage decline in each contest. Don't be surprised if he does more with his feet than his arm in this one.
Most rushing yards
Shonn Greene vs. C.J. Spiller: Take Spiller
The Bills offense has sputtered lately, but that hasn't stopped C.J. Spiller from turning in back-to-back 100+ yard efforts. He's ran for 241 yards on only 39 carries in the last two weeks, and should find plenty of room to operate against a down-trodden Jets defense on Sunday.
Shonn Greene did manage to find the end zone twice against the Chargers last week, but he's topped out at 77 rushing yards over his last three games. In fact, he's gained more than 77 yards on the ground only once in the last nine weeks.
Most pass receptions
Danny Amendola vs. Sidney Rice: Take Amendola
The Seahawks defense is firing on all cylinders right now, and I won't be shocked if the Rams come out with a rather conservative offensive gameplan in an effort to avoid those critical turnovers against this opportunistic bunch. That should lead to more targets for Sam Bradford's security blanket, Danny Amendola.
Russell Wilson has really been spreading the ball around lately, and that's meant a decreased workload for Sidney Rice. He's caught only seven passes in the last three weeks, and will be hard-pressed to top four catches in this one.

And they’ve been particularly DOMINANT on NFL Sunday, going 30-12 (71%) w/ ALL of their pro gridiron picks on the weekend (was 4-1 last Sunday!). Join the "Wagering Warriors" in AAA's army!
1* Free Play New Orleans Saints.
REASONING: We’ve used Seattle as a “free play selection” the past two weeks, but this Sunday we’re going to go against the struggling Seahawks’ offense and instead back the much hungrier home side. Seattle’s offense looked atrocious in its 6-6 Sunday Night tie with Arizona last week. The Seahawks run game has stalled and QB Russell Wilson still isn’t back to 100% health with his ankle injury. New Orleans on the other hand comes in ranked among the leaders in every offensive statistical category. At 3-4, the Saints still have a shot at the division title, but at 2-5, the odds would obviously be stacked against them. It’s a brutal part of the scheudle for the Seahawks, who have Buffalo visit next weekend, followed by a trip to New England. Note that Seattle is just 1-4 ATS in its last five against the NFC South, while New Orleans is 11-3 ATS in its last 14 as an underdog, including 3-0 ATS this season. Consider a second look at New Orleans in Week 8.
