The New England Patriots will be searching for some level of momentum when they host the New Orleans Saints this Sunday.
If you want my best bet for the game, you can find it in this week's edition of the "Road to 272 Bets."
In this article, we're talking prop bets, and I have a few locked in for this weekend's matchup.
If you want to get in on the action yourself, I'd recommend doing so at WynnBET Sportsbook, which is one of the best places for Massachusetts bettors to place their wagers! It's also where all of the odds for my prop bets in this article come from, so make sure to take advantage.
Best Prop Bets for Saints vs. Patriots
- Hunter Henry OVER 36.5 receiving yards (-120)
- Alvin Kamara UNDER 55.5 rushing yards (+107)
- Chad Ryland OVER 6.5 kicking points (+102)
Hunter Henry OVER 36.5 receiving yards (-120)
No one on the New England Patriots has more receiving yards this season than Hunter Henry, who has already racked up 176 yards through the first four games. That's an average of 44.0 receiving yards per game, well above his set total for Sunday against the Saints.
Not only that, but Henry has the second-most targets on the team with 23, so you know Mac Jones is going to be looking for him early and often. I think he can soar past 36.5 yards in this one.
Alvin Kamara UNDER 55.5 rushing yards (+107)
Alvin Kamara carried the ball just 11 times in his first game back from his suspension, but he also racked up 13 receptions. That shows me the Saints plan to use him in the passing game more than the running game moving forward.
This bet is also aided by the fact the Patriots have the eighth-best run defense in the NFL, keeping teams to an average of just 3.8 yards per carry this season.
I think the Patriots can limit Kamara's yardage on the ground on Sunday.
Chad Ryland OVER 6.5 kicking points (+102)
Yes that's right, we're betting on a kicker prop.
Chad Ryland has had a bit of a rough start to his year, making just 4-of-7 field goal attempts, but I think he's due for a strong outing against the Saints. The New Orleans red zone defense has been strong this season, allowing opponents to score a touchdown on just 46.15% of their possessions. That could lead to plenty of field goal attempts for Ryland.
Also, don't forget, extra points count toward this total as well. Let's hope the Patriots score enough touchdowns that Ryland only needs to get one three-point FG for him to go OVER 6.5 points for the game.
