Howell, Swift Among Best NFC East Prop Bets

I hate to say this, I truly do, but how about those Dallas Cowboys on TNF? After taking down the Seattle Seahawks in a thriller of an offensive showdown, Dallas is making it very apparent that the fight for the NFC East crown might come down to the wire if the Philadelphia Eagles were to slip at any moment.

As the Cowboys and New York Giants sit back and let the action unfold in their division this weekend, let’s break down a trio of the best NFL prop bets for Philadelphia’s game against the San Francisco 49ers and for the Washington Commanders, who will be playing hosts to the heavily favored Miami Dolphins.

Here’s a look at some NFL odds to consider.

Pass on Howell? Not for Props

There’s something about the way Sam Howell plays that can make you love him or hate him in an instant. While Washington’s quarterback has become one of the easiest to sack in the league, he also loves slinging the ball around as much as possible, going for at least 42 pass attempts in six straight games.

Even if Washington is coming into their home game against Miami as heavy NFL Las Vegas odds underdogs, that won’t stop Howell from hitting the field and wanting to bring the fight to Miami’s defense.

I would never sell you on the idea of the Commanders pulling off an inconceivable NFL betting lines upset against the Dolphins. I might be dumb at times, but I’m not that stupid. What I can sell you on is the fact that Howell will be going for at least 40 pass attempts once again this weekend.

If he’s been doing it constantly, why stop now?

NFL Pick: Sam Howell over 39.5 passing attempts (-145)

Swift Might be Philadelphia’s Best Weapon vs 49ers

Why would anybody want to bet on a rushing NFL prop betting pick against one of the toughest defenses in the league like San Francisco’s? Well, because it’s Eagles star RB DeAndre Swift who will be in charge of rushing the ball against the Niners, From experience, Swift has shown he can do some damage against any and all defensive lines that stand in front of him.

Having rushed for 75+ yards in his last two games, and with Philadelphia laying the vast majority of the team’s rushing reps on Swift, beating 53.5 yards doesn’t seem that hard.

San Francisco will have plenty on its hands trying to stop this Philadelphia offense that can attack from anywhere and everywhere, which is why taking this bet feels like a superb move.

NFL Pick: DeAndre Swift over 53.5 rushing yards (-108)

Look for Hurts to Take it on the Run

There’s a reason why Jalen Hurts is considered not only one of the best players in all of football but also a front-runner in our NFL MVP odds list for this season. Not only can he pass the ball masterfully, but the man can run the ball dominantly as well.

If you need any proof, just look back at Philadelphia’s winning drive in its game last week against Buffalo.

On Sunday, in a game against another Super Bowl LVIII odds heavy-hitter like San Francisco, all eyes will be on the showdown between Hurts and San Francisco’s elite defense.

I’m willing to take Hurts passing the ball less here, with his decision-making skills making the biggest difference, and choosing to run the ball to collect yards and move the ball downfield.

Hurts has shown over and over again that, when needed, he can run the ball like any other elite rusher in the league. So sharing the rushing reps with Swift and going for over 44.5 yards seems like an easy task for the elite passer.
