Welcome, Bruno Boys Nation to the Week 8 of the 2022 NFL Season! Along with the variety of fantasy football formats, we cover Player Prop bets. So in case you just want some quick action for the weekend, Ernie Estrella is tackling Player Prop betting during the season. He will break down the wiser bets for five players (2 in-depth, 3 quick) at quarterback, running back and wide receiver, based on how he sees the game script going.
Week 8 Running Backs
Josh Jacobs will rush OVER 83.5 yards (-115 Caesars) against the Saints
Start Time: Sunday, October 30, Caesar’s Superdome Stadium 1:00pm ET
Broadcast: CBS Sports / Paramount+ / NFL+s
It’s taken some time but we think Josh McDaniels has finally figured out that his chances of winning increases if he gives Josh Jacobs the ball. It not a coincidence that Jacobs had touches of 11, 20, and 18 in the first three losses of the season. In each of those games he finished with under 100 yards total for three straight games. The Raiders are 2-1 in their last three games and he’s had touches of 33, 26, and 32. He went over 150+ total yards in each of those games.
Historically, the Saints are one of the best to stop the run. They’ve only allowed four running backs to punch in a rushing touchdown this season but the Saints allowed five backs in seven games to run for at least 75.0 yards. So this run defense isn’t as good as it has been in the past.
