- Kyle Pitts is -115 to go over 54.5 yards this Sunday
- Pitts also has a wager set at -115 to go OVER 4.5 catches.
NEW YORK– Coming just a couple of catches short of his first 100-yard game last week, Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts looks to build off of that momentum in a prime matchup against the New York Giants on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. EST on the FOX Network.
The debut of Kyle Pitts wasn’t what most fans wanted, but the TE made up for it in a nice way with a 5-73 stat line against the vaunted Tampa Bay defense. Pitts and the Falcons will breathe a sigh of relief this week as they go from playing one of the league’s best teams, to one of the league’s worst in the New York Giants.
Pitts’ Role On Sunday
Pitts is sure to be featured heavily this weekend, as Matt Ryan and Co. are desperate for a victory after starting the season 0-2. While technically a tight end, Pitts lines up as a receiver for most of his routes. The athlete can do a little of everything for the Falcons as they are asking him to block like a tackle, run routes, and play a bit everywhere on the field as needed. The Giants have already given up notable receiving stat lines to Broncos tight end Noah Fant (6-62) and Washington wideout Terry McLaurin (11-107-1), boasting the chances of utility player Kyle Pitts going OVER his 54.5 yards prop total on sportsbook’s like Bovada during this matchup.
His DFS Game
With a $4900 price tag on DraftKings, Pitts offers fantasy players a nice floor at the tight end position. If you combine his 4.5 catch total with his 54.5 yardage prop, you are looking at a tight end with a 10-12 point projection at under 5k. Pitts isn’t Darren Waller or Travis Kelce just yet, but he is almost $3,000 cheaper in salary than they are. That $3,000 savings will go a long way this week when players go to spend a lot more for elite quarterback spots like Kyler Murray against Jacksonville or Lamar Jackson against Detroit.
This is a prime spot to buy low on the Atlanta Falcons offense, as most of the public is down on them. Fading the Giants at home has not been a bad move, for sports bettors as the Giants are just 4-10 ATS at home, hinting towards another shaky performance for New York’s defense prop total listed on sportsbooks for this Sunday.
