With the NFL season just around the corner, it’s time to put those fantasy football muscles to work and make some season-long prop bets. We’ve analyzed the hundreds of props posted at the BetUS sportsbook and came up with the best bets for individual player props for the 2021 season.
Here are the plays for the Washington Football Team:
Antonio Gibson could benefit from the Washington Football Team not having an excellent quarterback. That has been reflected in his Las Vegas NFL odds for rushing yards, which sits at 1,000½.
That’s a big line for a second-year player who rushed for 795 last season, but it’s not too surprising. The former Memphis player looks to have a bright future and he will be used heavily this season.
Rushing for over 1,000 yards in your second season isn’t easy, but the offensive game plan for the Washington Football Team plays into his hands, so bettors can cash in.
This is where bettors could have trouble making a decision. The line is 9½ touchdowns, which could be tough to cover. However, we’re making a case for Gibson to hit the over.
Despite the Washington Football Team being unlikely to generate much offense, Gibson could be the exception and he showed what he can do in 2020.

Gibson rushed for 11 touchdowns and didn’t fumble. He will be used in close yardage situations, so he could do the majority of the scoring for Washington.
Best Pick: Over 1,000½ Rushing Yards (-115)
The wide receiver caught 58 and 87 receptions in his first two seasons.
McLaurin doesn’t need to improve on his most recent season, which saw him catch 87 receptions in 15 games. He has more game time to increase that number, but our only worry is the quality of passes being thrown his way.
A receiver is often only as good as the pass he receives, so Terry McLaurin might need to make his own luck.
If he can regularly get open, the Over 85½ should be in safe hands.
After putting up 1,118 yards last season, we’re not surprised the online sportsbook has set the line at 1,150½.
NFL predictions have McLaurin having a big season, but we don’t think he’ll be able to encompass his 2020 season. The Washington Football Team could be in for a long season, especially on the offensive front.
If that’s the case, we see McLaurin’s ability to get chunk yardage decreasing. The number should be close, but there is too much risk for our liking.
It comes as no surprise that we’re on the Under 6½. We don’t see this team scoring 30+ points per game, and that will have a negative impact on McLaurin’s stats.
Those who bet on NFL know how much this team struggles in the red zone, so we don’t feel confident in backing McLaurin to have more than 6½ TDs.
Take the under in this NFL betting market.
Best Pick: Over 85½ Receptions (-115)
The online sportsbook has the line at 9½, which is fair given he recorded 7½ sacks from 15 games last season.
Young is a defensive talent for the Washington Football Team, and he could be the leader of his defense in a few years.
Leading by example is the way to go, so look for Young to be all over the quarterback in 2021. We expect the over to hit in this betting market, so take the line before it moves.
