Our premier data analytics guru Nick Giffen assessed the value on all these props. And he says fade the touchdown props, but go ahead and roll with Henry on his rushing yard line even with the negative closing line value.

Henry’s fair value line to score the first touchdown of the game is around +455. At BetMGM’s price of +400, you’re losing about 2% of value by riding this line.

Henry’s anytime TD line should be priced closer to -146. MGM’s price of -200 means this bet loses 7.3% in value from what’s fair.

That said, if you’re really keen on this line, DraftKings is pricing it at -150. Keep in mind that even the line is still negative EV.

It’s Henry’s rushing yard prop that has the most +EV. If you had gotten in at 98 yards — when it opened — you’d be looking amazing right now.

Even at its current market-best price of o104.5 at BetRivers, it’s decent value. He’s projected to rush for about 107 yards tonight, Giffen said.
