Pamela Maldonado goes in depth on a few prop bets she is playing for week 12 of the NFL season.
PAM MALDONADO: Well, welcome to the Prop Shop Pam Maldonado bringing you my favorite player props for week 12 of the NFL. Prop number one, Joe Burrow to throw an interception minus 105. The Bengals quarterback has thrown 11 interceptions this season, at least one in seven of his 10 games played, including one back in September in the first match-up against Pittsburgh. And that was without TJ Watt. The Steelers linebacker is back in the lineup. What can heavy quarterback pressure do? Generate turnovers.
Prop number two, Tom Brady to throw an interception minus 150. Brady has thrown five interceptions in his last three road games. The Colts defense ranked sixth best in opponent interceptions thrown percentage and has forced an interception in two of its last three games.
Prop number three, Melvin Gordon anytime touchdown plus 100. The Broncos running back splits carries with Javonte Williams but has five scores in his last four games. The Chargers defense ranks bottom five in rushing yards per game allowed, yards per carry allowed, and rushing in touchdowns allowed of 13 total. A 4 to 1 sprinkle on Gordon to have two or more scores is definitely worth a shot.
Prop number four and prop number five, Noah Fant over 35 and 1/2 receiving yards and anytime touchdown plus 225. The Broncos tight end has just three touchdowns on the season and hasn't scored in over a month, since week six against the Raiders. But the game plan for this against the Chargers could be to utilize both running backs in Melvin Gordon and Javonte Williams to get downfield against the worst rushing defense and use Noah Fant in the red zone to put up some points.
The Chargers have given up a league-high nine touchdowns to tight ends this season. Using both backs could open up the passing game and Fant has surpassed this total in five games this season, including in three of his last four games played.
Those are some five player props that I do like for week 12 of the NFL. You can find these odds and more over at the Yahoo Sportsbook.
