Sunday brings a 12-game slate for Week 8 in the NFL, and with it come a wide variety of player props with lots of potential value.
Player proposition wagers offer so many specific scenarios for bettors to find an edge in the betting markets, ranging from anytime touchdowns, to rushing attempts, and even quarterback interceptions. Those are the three props our team is locked in on for today's action.
Here are our team's favorite player props on the board for this week, ranging from the early afternoon slate, late afternoon, and the Sunday Night Football matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Buffalo Bills.
Best NFL Player Props for Week 8
- Kenny Pickett Over 1.5 Interceptions (+165)
- Kenneth Walker Anytime TD (-146)
- Aaron Jones UNDER 11.5 Rush Attempts (+105)
Kenny Pickett OVER 1.5 Interceptions (+165)
Matt Canada’s offense has been atrocious this year, and it won't get much better today on the road vs. the Philadelphia Eagles.
For rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett, his only option seems to be a seven yard comeback route to the sideline. With no efficiency in the Steelers' offense, it's forced Pickett to make ill-advised throws once they get behind.
In the first half, Pickett will try to play it smart and take what the Eagles' defense will offer up. But as a massive underdog on the road, the further they fall behind, the more likely he will be to force something into tight coverage and get picked off; similar to what happened at the end of last week’s game. - Josh Yourish

Kenneth Walker Anytime TD (-144)
Kenneth Walker III has a dream matchup this week vs. the New York Giants, allowing a league-worst 5.7 yards per carry this year.
Walker has become a focal point in Seattle's offense and has scored in three consecutive games, including twice last week. He’s already the new favorite to win Offensive Rookie of the Year despite only playing in a few games before Rashaad Penny got hurt.
With DK Metcalf’s status as a concern, I expect Seattle to lean on the run game more in Week 8. – Peter Dewey

Aaron Jones UNDER 11.5 Rush Attempts (+105)
As Peter Dewey wrote earlier regarding the injury status of Packers No. 1 receiver Allen Lazard, his absence should open up more opportunities in the passing game for running back Aaron Jones. Over the previous two weeks, his carries have gone down, and targets in the passing game have consequently increased.
The Packers and Aaron Rodgers are double-digit underdogs for the first time in Rodgers' career, and if Buffalo builds up a big lead early, the Packers will have no choice but to start throwing the ball more often than they'd like. Even if they do keep it close, Green Bay still has A.J. Dillon lurking as a backfield threat to Jones' carries.
For plus-odds in a game script that screams "pass pass pass," I'll take a shot on Jones to go under 12 rushing attempts. - Ben Heisler
