Online gambling sites have set odds and betting lines for breakout QB Jalen Hurts, offering interesting props that bettors can take advantage of such as his passing yards at 247.5 (-114) and anytime touchdown scorer set at -126 odds.
Jalen Hurts is an Elite Redzone Weapon
As has been the case all season, Jalen Hurts is no stranger to reaching the endzone himself, tying for the second-most rushing touchdowns this season with 13, despite missing two games. His consistent usage as a key redzone asset spearheaded the Eagles’ top NFL rushing offense and makes his anytime touchdown scorer prop set at -126 odds an attractive option.
Against the Giants on the season, Hurts scored a rushing touchdown on a 10-yard scamper in their first meeting, but was unable to score one in the season finale where the Giants rested their starters. However, it is worth noting that Hurts was coming off injury in the latter game and should be healthy after receiving a bye to start the playoffs.
When in the redzone, the Eagles rank third in the league in touchdown percentage, at a strong 67.80%. This is in large part due to Hurts’ whopping 43% touch share among rushers when they are inside the 5-yard line, which would be even higher were it not due to injury.
This can give bettors confidence to play Hurts’ anytime touchdown scorer prop at -126 odds as when the Eagles get near the endzone, they will likely turn to Hurts to punch it in.
Curiously High Yardage Prop Offers Value
Bettors will also be able to capitalize on the 247.5 pass yardage prop for Hurts, which NFL gambling sites have set at -114 odds to go under. Throughout his 15-game season, Hurts threw for 248 or more in just five total games and failed to do so in both matchups with the Giants.
While Hurts does have a season average of 246.7 yards on the season, it is heavily inflated by three games of 330+ yards where at least one 40+ yard completion was recorded in each. Combine this with the Giants giving up an average of just 217 passing yards per game as well as a run-friendly game script and it appears that bettors could certainly cash in on the solid value.
