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.

They’re famous throughout the industry for routinely nailing their LARGEST plays, don’t dare miss out on this one, BE THERE!
If you don’t mind laying some juice, we think that Astros’ ace Dallas Keuchel is worth the price of admission in this spot. The visitors send Jose Berrios (0-1, 11.25 ERA) to the hill, he was rocked for five runs off six hits over four innings in his MLB debut vs. the Indians on Wednesday. Berrios is a converted short-stop and may need some more time in the minors to round out his game, but the Twins are desperate for starting pitching. Keuchel (2-3, 4.41 ERA) is coming off an outing to forget in which he gave up five runs off six hits with two walks and five K’s over six innings in an 11-1 loss at Seattle on Tuesday. Keuchel will be glad to see the calendar flip to May after a frustrating April but remember, the 28-year-old southpaw would go 15-0 with a 1.46 ERA at home last season. This is a mismatch of epic proportions, consider laying the price.
