NFL Week 15 Best Prop Bets for December 19, 2021

NFL Week 15 Best Prop Bets for December 19, 2021

We were slated to have a full card on Sunday in Week 15, but Covid restrictions are throwing the schedule into disarray.

The NFL is back to having Tuesday night football, as the Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams are at SoFi Stadium for a 4:00 p.m. PST kickoff.

Also in Tuesday NFL action, the Washington Football Team and Philadelphia Eagles are at Lincoln Financial Field for a kickoff scheduled for 7:00 p.m. EST.

There was also another game moved to Monday, so there’s a doubleheader in Week 15. The NFL tried their best to try to fit the Las Vegas Raiders and Cleveland Browns into Sunday, but they bended to pressure and postponed the game.

I don’t mind the schedule stretched out. There is now NFL football on eight of ten days. If you want to include college bowl games, there’s even more football during the holidays.

Head below for our best Week 15 NFL prop bets for December 19, 2021.

New York Jets vs. Miami Dolphins Prop Bets

DeVante Parker Total Receiving Yards

DeVante Parker has only played in six games this season, but has been impactful in the time he’s spent on the field. He and Jaylen Waddle have the potential to be a dynamic duo in Miami if the offense gets cooking.

Waddle will be unavailable after being placed on the Covid list. That leaves Parker as the clear No. 1 for Tua Tagovailoa. Parker should see plenty of opportunities in this one. Parker enters with 389 yards and 1 touchdown on 30 receptions.

He’s recorded at least 62 yards in three straight games, and I’m confident that the Jets should allow him to go for a minimum of 55 yards in this one. The Jets are 27th in the league with 254 passing yards allowed per game. Parker should find room in their secondary.

DeVante Parker Receiving Yards Prop
OVER 54.5

Braxton Berrios Total Receiving Yards

Braxton Berrios was the primary target for Zach Wilson last week. He compiled 52 yards on 6 receptions for his second game with at least 40 yards receiving this season.

Wilson has to simplify things and let the game come to him. When he tries to hurry and force everything, he turns into a disaster and loses his confidence. He doesn’t have any time with this offensive line to do much else anyway.

Berrios is a shifty slot receiver that should be there on quick routes. Wilson has to feed him more, and it worked last week. In getting more comfortable with him, expect Berrios to continue to see targets. This prop looks too low. I’d go with Berrios to have at least 31 receiving yards.

Braxton Berrios Receiving Yards Prop
OVER 30.5

Houston Texans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Prop Bets

James Robinson Total Receptions

Now with Urban Meyer finally gone from the Jacksonville Jaguars is James Robinson going to see opportunities? Meyer loves to play favorites, and Robinson was on his blacklist from training camp.

Robinson will see an increased workload in the absence of his former head coach. He has gained 682 yards and 7 touchdowns on 4.8 yards per carry. Well done but he didn’t see the field enough to really blossom.

He’s also been a decent receiver out of the backfield with 28 receptions on 40 targets for 209 yards. Robinson had 4, 2, and 3 receptions in three weeks before Meyer shut him down against the Rams and Titans.

After carrying the ball 17 times and 3 receptions versus the Falcons, Robinson had just 8 carries and 6 against the Rams and Titans. He’ll get back on track with Meyer fired. Look for Robinson to grab 3 or 4 receptions.

James Robinson Receptions Prop
OVER 2.5

Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants Prop Bets

Saquon Barkley Total Rushing Yards

Mike Glennon continues to pilot the New York Giants’ offense, which equates to handing the ball off to Saquon Barkley and allowing him to attempt to find a running lane. Barkley has been running well after a slow start this season.

Barkley, who is coming off a devastating ankle injury last year, has been slowly coming along on this bad team in 2021.

He’s rushed for 379 yards and 2 touchdowns on 3.8 yards per carry. In his last three outings, Barkley has seen an increased workload with 40 carries.

Barkley gained 55 yards and 64 yards the last two weeks. With Glennon back at the controls, what do you think the Giants are going to look to do in this one?

Expect Barkley to see more carries with a good chance of going OVER this prop.

Saquon Barkley Rushing Yards Prop
OVER 52.5

Arizona Cardinals vs. Detroit Lions Prop Bets

Kyler Murray Total Rushing Yards

The Arizona Cardinals are in Detroit looking to avoid a letdown spot against the Lions. This is one of those games where the Cardinals have to focus and not overlook their opponent.

There have been several teams this year that have overlooked the Lions and got into a 4th quarter battle with them. It isn’t pretty, but the Lions can ugly games up enough to stay close.

The Lions’ defense hasn’t done anything well, but they can be persistent. They’ve conceded 135.2 rushing yards per game for 28th in the NFL. Kyler Murray should be able to dance around their defense.

Murray is going into Sunday with 19 touchdowns and 9 interceptions on 71.6% completions. He’s gained 267 yards and 5 touchdowns on 4 yards a carry as a runner.

In his last two outings, Murray ran over 59 yards against the Bears, and then 61 yards over the Rams last weekend in a tough 30-23 loss. He should have a minimum of 40 yards on Sunday at Ford Field.

Kyler Murray Rushing Yards Prop
OVER 30.5

Green Bay Packers vs. Baltimore Ravens Prop Bets

Aaron Rodgers Total Passing Yards

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are in Baltimore at M&T Bank Stadium for a marquee matchup in the late window.

The Ravens have been mediocre this season with a record of 8-5. They’ve just been kind of there and not doing anything to excite their fans.

The Ravens are coming off back-to-back losses on December 5 and December 12. In their most recent loss, they nearly pulled off a come from behind win, but stopped for a 24-22 loss.

They were 20-19 losers versus the Steelers prior to that one. Their secondary has been getting worked and a shell of their former selves.

The Ravens are 31st in the NFL with 266.1 passing yards allowed per game. What’s going to happen when Rodgers comes to town? Expect him to shred the Ravens here.

He’s coming off three straight 300-yard games and at least 292 yards in four in a row. On the season, Rodgers has 3,219 yards, 27 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions on 67.3% completions.

Sunday afternoon should be an easy trip to the office for Rodgers versus this secondary.

Aaron Rodgers Passing Yards Prop
OVER 265.5

Devonta Freeman Total Rushing Yards

The Ravens may not like it, but they’re going to have to give the ball to Tyler Huntley and have him attempt to win this one.

With Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ offense likely churning through the chains, Huntley is going to be forced to put the ball in the air.

Freeman and the Ravens’ runners are going to be running into a stout defensive front of the Packers. Green Bay is in the top-10 with 105.2 yards allowed per game on the ground.

Freeman has put up 440 yards and 4 touchdowns on 4.3 yards per carry through 12 games. In a game where the Ravens may have to abandon the run, I don’t see Freeman going for more than 51 yards.

Devonta Freeman Rushing Yards Prop
UNDER 51.5

New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Prop Bets

Alvin Kamara Total Rushing Yards

The New Orleans Saints need their workhorses to get to work against the Buccaneers on Sunday night. That begins and ends with Alvin Kamara.

Kamara returned to the field last week against the Jets to shake off the rust after missing weeks of action. He had been on the shelf since an injury against the Atlanta Falcons on November 7.

In his first game since then, Kamara had 120 yards and 4.4 yards per carry along with a touchdown. He caught 4 balls for 25 yards through the air.

Lining up and hanging the ball off to Kamara likely isn’t going to work against the Buccaneers’ defense. The Bucs are third best in the NFL with 91.2 rushing yards allowed per game.

New Orleans still has to get Kamara involved in the game, though. Look for them to dump the ball off and try to get Kamara in open space. He should have more than 30 yards receiving in this one.

Alvin Kamara Receiving Yards Prop
OVER 31.5

Rob Gronkowski Total Receiving Yards

Rob Gronkowski is up to his old tricks with Tom Brady. For the first stretch in his stint with the Buccaneers, Gronkowski has looked like vintage Gronk with the Patriots. He’s getting open and running like a younger version of what we saw from last year.

That very well could have been rust after sitting out and going into retirement briefly. There have been shades of his former self with the Patriots, but no, this isn’t the same guy from before. He’s still been very reliable and getting better with each passing week.

Gronkowski has recorded 498 yards and 6 touchdowns on 38 receptions this season. He’s going into tonight with 78.5 yards per game in his last four outings, with a minimum of 58 yards in all four.

This prop looks too low on Gronkowski’s receiving number. The OVER looks the right place to be here.

Rob Gronkowski Receiving Yards Prop
OVER 54.5
