NFL Prop Shop: Week 15
It’s hard to believe, but we’re down to the final three weeks of the NFL regular season.
Plenty of time to make a little extra coin heading into the playoffs.
Here are four prop picks to click this Sunday.
Most passing yards
Andrew Luck vs. Matt Schaub: Take Luck
The Colts defense has given up some gawdy numbers on the road this season, but Matt Schaub has been far too inconsistent to back, regardless the opposition he’s facing.
I suspect Indy will be playing catch-up for much of this game, and that means we should see Andrew Luck rack up plenty of yardage through the air.
The Texans banged-up secondary has been exposed on a weekly basis lately, and this matchup will be no different.
Eli Manning vs. Matt Ryan: Take Manning
Eli Manning has been alternating good and bad performances lately, but I expect to see him buck that trend this week in Atlanta.
Manning’s receiving corps has been getting healthier, and it’s showed in his production. Here’s another fine opportunity for Manning to throw for over 300 yards against an average Falcons secondary.
I won’t be surprised if we see Atlanta focus more heavily on its ground game in an effort to keep the Giants offense on the sidelines. That should help keep Matt Ryan’s numbers in check.
Most rushing yards
Marshawn Lynch vs. C.J. Spiller: Take Lynch
We can expect Marshawn Lynch to be in full-on ‘beast mode’ against his former team on Sunday – bad news for a Bills defensive front that has struggled for much of the season, giving up close to 5.0 yards per rush.
With Fred Jackson being placed on injured reserve, C.J. Spiller will see his workload increase once again. The fact is, he’s had only one 100-yard rushing game since Week 3, and I don’t see him approaching that number here.
Most pass receptions
Eric Decker vs. Anquan Boldin: Take Decker
Anquan Boldin enjoyed a big game last Sunday, hauling in a pair of touchdown catches, but outside of those two scores, he had just one grab. He doesn’t have a favorable matchup against a sound Broncos secondary this week.
The Ravens pass defense continues to get torched on a weekly basis, and will be hard-pressed to slow down the duo of Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas on Sunday. Expect Thomas to get the bulk of the attention, setting up Decker for a big game.

The Twins have won three of four on this road trip, and they've split the first two games here in Chicago. I expect to see plenty of runs in the rubber match here on Sunday.
Kyle Gibson will toe the slab for the visitors, and he's coming off a loss at home in his last start. Gibson (3-3, 2.89 ERA) allowed three runs on eight hits and a pair of walks in just five innings in a loss to Tampa. He's 0-2 with a 4.76 ERA in four starts on the road, and he's been hit even harder in day games, going 0-2 with a 6.32 ERA.
The White Sox hand the ball to Jose Quintana, who hasn't been consistent at all this season. Quintana (2-4, 4.13 ERA) allowed a pair of runs on eight hits and four walks over seven innings in a home win over Cleveland his last time out. He was fortunate the Indians weren't able to cash in on all the baserunners. He's been torched for 11 runs on 14 hits over nine innings in his only two starts in day games so far.
Torii Hunter hit a home run yesterday, and he's 10-for-26 lifetime versus Quintana.
