Listed as heavy favorites on Thursday Night Football, the New England Patriots have a handful of players getting support in the prop betting market against the Atlanta Falcons.
According to data released by BetMGM on Thursday, the three most-bet player props for the game are all on Patriots individuals to score.
The most-bet prop is on Damien Harris to score the first touchdown of the game at +650 (bet $100, profit $650). Harris returns to the team after missing last week’s game, but has scored in each of the last five games he’s played, including the first touchdown against the Carolina Panthers two weeks ago.
He also scored the first touchdown of the game in the team’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys, giving him the honor twice in nine games.
While bettors are heavy on Harris in his return, they’re not giving up on his backup just yet. Rhamondre Stevenson has made the most of his opportunities, rushing for 100 yards on 20 carries last week with Harris out and 62 yards on 10 carries the week before. Last week included two touchdowns, so bettors are hoping he finds the end zone again at +100 odds.
Finally, bettors are finding a way to count on a Patriots win without having to pay the -275 moneyline. They’re parlaying a Pats win with a touchdown scored by tight end Hunter Henry, which comes with a +145 price. Henry has scored a touchdown in six of his last seven games.
The Patriots are listed as 6.5-point favorites with the total at 47 in the hours before kickoff.
