NFL Prop Bets To Make For 2020 Season

NFL Prop Bets To Make For 2020 Season

The NFL is moving full-steam ahead with its plans for a 2020-21 season — pandemic or not. That level of confidence seems to be shared by bookmakers because there are presently dozens upon dozens of NFL prop bets for wagering. With little sports to gamble on at the moment, why not try your luck at said props? We have tons of free betting picks and advice to help you out!

The NFL prop betting selection at Bovada's is one of the best among all sports betting sites. Right now, they have 250-plus unique props for the upcoming season, that includes:

  • Player-specific props on individual stat output
  • Year-end award winners
  • Team finishing position in the standings

We're about to give you some of our favorite picks to make, free of cost. But before we get to that, are you aware of all the sign-up bonus deals available right now? You know, the ones that are dangling hundreds to thousands of dollars in free play? Seriously, check them out cause everyone could use an extra hand in times like these!  

NFL Comeback Player of the Year

Here's how Bovada has the odds currently pegged for this coveted award:

NFL Comeback Player of the Year bovada mybookie betonline

Rob Gronkowski

+325 +310 +305

Ben Roethlisberger

+400 +420 +430

Matt Stafford

+650 +600 +650

Alex Smith

+700 +700 +700

You have to go with Roethlisberger here. Look he suffered a freak injury last season. He's been largely durable during his 15-year career. Our bet is he returns to not only his healthy ways but the prolific passer ways, too. He's less than two years removed from an eye-popping 5,100-yard and 34-touchdown year and has a talented arsenal of weapons around in him (JuJu Smith-Schuster and James Conner). 

Betting pick: Roethlisberger (+400)

Finishing Position In Standings — New England Patriots

How will the Pats fare in its first-go post-Tom Brady? 

Finishing Position - New England Patriots bovada mybookie betonline

First

+130 +110 +105

Second

+205 +220 +230

Third

+300 +300 +350

Fourth

+600 +600 +700

Plain and simple, Bill Belichick has proven he can win in New England without Brady already. They went 11-5 in 2008 with Matt Cassell at center and 3-1 while Brady was suspended in 2016. Expect the same in 2020.

Plus, who else in that division is qualified to take his thrown? Adam Gase? Sean McDermott? Brian Flores? What have they ever won? Our confidence resides with the six-time Super Bowl champion coach.  

Betting pick: First (+130)

DeAndre Hopkins — Over/Under 1,125 Yard Receiving in 2020 Season

Odds are completely split on this one with both the under and over being an equal -115. 

For us, it's a no-brainer that "Nuk" will eclipse the total. Homer the over hard here. Despite being traded for cents on the dollar, Hopkins is still a top-5 receiver that's only 27 years old. Now is when he should be peaking.

Plus, Kyler Murray is due for a massive jump in year two not unlike the one we saw out of Lamar Jackson in 2019. A pairing between Murray-Hopkins will be one of the most lethal across the whole league. 

Betting pick: Over (-115) 

Teams With Most Regular Season Losses

Here's a fun one, who will finish dead-last in the league come 2020 years-end?

Teams with the most Regular Season Losses  bovada mybookie betonline

Jacksonville Jaguars

+250 +250 +305

Washington Redskins

+600 +620 +630

Carolina Panthers

+700 +750 +750

Carolina hit the reset button over the last year. Gone is Ron Rivera, coach of the last nine years. Gone is defensive anchor Luke Kuechly to early retirement. Gone is the face of the franchise, Cam Newton. We expect things to get ugly in 2020 with a bare-bones roster.  

Plus, for all intents and purposes, Trevor Lawrence of Clemson is the prohibitive favorite to go No. 1 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft. The Panthers keeping Lawrence in the Carolinas would be a box office move.

Betting pick: Carolina (+700)

NFL MVP Winner

It's no surprise the betting favorites are all signal-callers:

NFL MVP Winner bovada mybookie betonline

Patrick Mahomes

+350 +360 +315

Lamar Jackson

+800 +820 +830

Tom Brady

+900 +900 +850

Russell Wilson

+1000 +1000 +900

Sophomore quarterbacks have won back-to-back MVP titles (Mahomes in 2017, Jackson in 2018). How about a three-peat?

We mentioned it earlier, but we're all aboard the Murray bandwagon. His skill set — an unconventional thrower that can scramble in the pocket — is the new quarterback prototype in 2020, no longer the tall drop-back passer. He'll thrive in his second-go at Kliff Kingsbury's offense and with a much improved supporting cast. 

Betting pick: Kyler Murray (+1200)

Derrick Henry — Over/Under 1,290 Rushing Yards In 2020 Season

Henry, the 2019 rushing leader at a whopping 1,540 yards on the ground, is an even -115 both ways. We'll take the under. More than anything, we believe opposing defenses will stack the box with eight defenders in an effort to contain Henry. The question then becomes, can Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill help keep defenses honest with his arm? We don't think so, which will hurt Henry's efforts.

Betting pick: Under (-115)

Cleveland Browns — Playoff Appearance

We finish off with the league's loveable losers, the Browns. They are +120 to earn a postseason trip, while -160 to miss out yet again (they haven't made it since the 2002 season).

Former head coach Freddie Kitchens deservingly fell on the sword for Cleveland's disappointing 2019 campaign. But did the franchise really upgrade with new coach Kevin Stefanski? He's been an offensive coordinator just once, last year for Minnesota, and his offense was only so-so. 

Our prediction is that the Browns' struggles continue this year. There's just something to be said about having a winning culture and Cleveland doesn't fit that bill. 

Betting pick: No (-160)

That does it for our NFL prop betting guide. For the full list of props available, head over to Bovada or one of our partners below. 

While there, take advantage of those welcome bonuses we mentioned earlier. Earning the reward is easy: sign-up to any bookmaker for the first time, make a deposit, and they'll match part of it with wads of free play. C'mon, how easy is that?
