The NFL spreads can be hard to predict, but player props offer fans another way to have a stake in a game. Let’s focus on the top prop bets in the NFC South for Week 5. Be sure to check out the BetUS Prop Builder for the widest array of betting options.
For Week 4, we had a nice return with the NFC South prop picks going 3-2 and continuing a solid recent streak of 6-4 over the last two weeks. If you took my advice, one of these props had Buccaneers receiver Trey Palmer scoring a touchdown, which was listed at more than +500 in most of the Vegas NFL odds.
Here is a look at my NFL picks for the top prop bets around the NFC South.
Bijan Robinson Shines in the Land of Waffle Houses
The Falcons are so thankful to be back in the city of lemon pepper wings and Waffle Houses after struggling on the road. If Atlanta is going to get back on track, the Falcons are going to need a heavy dose of Bijan Robinson.

The rookie running back has been heavily involved in Atlanta’s passing game notching four or more receptions in every game. Some of the other Robinson props are also appealing, but hitting the over in receptions is as safe an option as the likelihood that Outkast’s music is played during the Texans-Falcons game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
NFL Props Picks: Bijan Robinson over 3.5 receptions versus Texans
We Still Got a Feelin’ for Thielen
This is not our first rodeo in the NFC South, and we have taken notice of Adam Thielen’s role in Carolina continuing to increase each week. Look for this trend to continue against the Patriots in Week 5. Bet online Thielen to hit the over on receiving yards.

NFL Props Picks: Adam Thielen over 52.5 receiving yards versus Lions
Alvin Kamara Shines versus Patriots
Alvin Kamara wasted no time getting involved in the Saints’ offense notching a whopping 13(!) receptions on 14 targets during his season debut in Week 4. We’re banking on Kamara’s continued involvement in the passing game against the Patriots with nice plus NFL Las Vegas odds.

Crazy Falcons Parlay Has Chance to Hit at +500
For our Week 5 lottery ticket, BetUS offers a crazy parlay that has a chance to hit. These three things all need to happen: Desmond Ridder to pass for more than 190 yards, the Falcons to win and the point total to go over 41.5.
Both the Texans and Falcons are capable of putting up points. I also like this as a get right spot for an Atlanta team that struggled on the road. As the +500 odds suggest, this is a longshot but sprinkle a little on this Falcons prop parlay.
Chris Olave Scores a TD in Saints Win
Chris Olave has been the main engine in the New Orleans offense leading the team with 23 receptions through the first four games. Despite this high volume, Olave is still looking for his first touchdown this season and is due to find the end zone given his high usage.

Given I like New Orleans to defeat New England, the BetUS prop parlay of an Olave touchdown combined with a Saints win is particularly appealing. The +383 return makes it a nice upside play in the NFL betting props for Week 5.
NFL Prop Parlay Pick: Chris Olave to score a TD and Saints to win
