Week 12 Player Props on Monkey Knife Fight
MORE OR LESS
Josh Allen 275.5 PASSING YARDS
Trevor Siemian 225.5 PASSING YARDS
Well, if this matchup were a month ago. My outlook on Josh Allen would be clearer. On his way to an MVP award through the first 6 or 7 weeks, he’s been the model of inconsistency lately. And outside of beating up on the lowly Jets, which coincidentally was the last time he passed for over the targeted yardage, he’s been downright mediocre. I do believe he will return to form this week, but it's going to be hard to get to the desired mark on the road against a New Orleans defense barely giving up 250 yards through the air. As for his counterpart, I think the prognosis is more clear. He struggled against a Philadelphia defense that’s been playing better, and this week he gets the top unit in the league, which will look to bounce back from an embarrassing effort last week. I wouldn’t count on him having a solid afternoon.
Take the 'Less' with both signal-callers.
PASSING YARDS - Allen VS. Siemian (+50.5)
RECEIVING YARDS - Stefon Diggs vs. Cole Beasley (+25.5)
Both plays in this week’s play are clear-cut. Even though the Colts put up 40-plus on Buffalo last week, the overwhelming majority of that damage was done by Johnathan Taylor on the ground. The Bills secondary only gives up about 180 through the air, and it’ll be a tough task for Siemian to approach that number. Which means the odds are he’ll be safely behind Allen. The other matchup puts teammate against teammate. And I think the outlook is solid here. Diggs has only gone over 100 yards receiving once in the past 5 weeks. I think he re-establishes himself as one of the best in the game with a good day on the road. In turn, that means a reduced number of targets for Beasley, who could also have a good week but won't be able to match the production of Diggs.
Give me the combination of Allen & Diggs for this Thanksgiving Day win.
