NFL prop betting lines this week feature plenty of value in the NFC South. The Atlanta Falcons host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a battle for the division.
Meanwhile, the New Orleans Saints try to get back into the NFC South race with a winnable game against the Carolina Panthers.
Let’s take a look at my NFL predictions for the top prop bets around the NFC South.
Panthers Continue to Lean on Hubbard
Chubba Hubbard is becoming one of the few bright spots for the Panthers offense. Hubbard has a combined 39 carries over the last two weeks.
The playmaker appears to have established himself as Carolina’s RB1. Hubbard has topped 56 rushing yards in two of the last three games, including 104 yards against the Bucs in Week 13.
The running back also has three touchdowns in the last two outings. We also like Hubbard to keep his TD streak alive against the Saints.
NFL Prop Bet Pick: Chubba Hubbard over 56.5 rushing yards
NFL Prop Bet Pick: Chubba Hubbard to score anytime touchdown
Baker Mayfield Keeps Throwing Interceptions
Not to be negative, but Bucs quarterback Baker Mayfield has thrown an interception in four straight games. Mayfield is on pace to hit double-digit picks with eight already this season.
The Falcons’ defense has been notching takeaways in recent weeks. Bet online for Mayfield to once again throw an interception in this battle for the NFC South.

Jessie Bates Is on a Heater
We like taking both of these bets because there is a good chance each can hit. If Mayfield does throw an interception, chances are it will be to Atlanta’s Jessie Bates.
The Falcons safety has an interception in two straight games and five picks on the season. Las Vegas odds are giving us a nice possible return at +350.

Bucs Coaching Staff Is Getting Put on Blast About Chris Godwin
Things are getting awkward in Tampa with Chris Godwin’s wife, Mariah, going viral for calling out the Bucs coaching staff. This has prompted players and coaches to be peppered with questions about Godwin’s usage.
All this to say, I think the Bucs will look to get Godwin more involved. Sportsbooks have Godwin’s yardage set at a reasonable 49.5 against the Falcons. Look for Godwin to get more involved much to the liking of Mariah (and bettors).
NFL Prop Bet Pick: Chris Godwin over 49.5 receiving yards
Chris Olave Is a DAWG
It does not seem to matter who is the Saints quarterback. Chris Olave is getting the rock. All signs point to Derek Carr playing in Week 14, but I feel comfortable with this prop even if Jameis Winston started.
Olave has topped 90 receiving yards in three straight games. The wideout’s yardage number is still too low in the Vegas NFL odds despite Olave’s recent success.
NFL Prop Bet Pick: Chris Olave over 68.5 receiving yards
Mike Evans has Been a Touchdown Machine
While controversy surrounds Godwin, all Mike Evans has done is score touchdowns. Mayfield’s connection with Evans has been the one constant in the Bucs offense this season.
Evans already has 10 touchdowns in 2023. The Bucs star has scored a TD in four straight games. The last time the Buccaneers faced the Falcons, Evans had six receptions for 82 yards and a touchdown.
