You may not be used to watching NFL games on Saturday just yet, but there are still bets to be made and football to watch. With both the Washington Redskins and Tennessee Titans clinging to their respective playoff lives, it's a must-win game for both teams in Week 16.
If you aren't betting the game with the spread or the over/under, here are five of the best prop bets, available on FanDuel Sportsbook, for today's matchup between the Redskins and Titans.
5. First Turnover: Interception (-185)

Marcus Mariota has had his struggles this season with eight interceptions and is now going against an opportunistic Washington defense that is eighth in the league with 14 picks on the year. The Titans may not be ballhawks as they're towards the bottom of the NFL in INTs, but they haven't had the luxury of going against a fourth-string QB, like journeyman Josh Johnson, the Redskins starter this afternoon.
4. Marcus Mariota: Rushing Touchdown (+280)

Mariota isn't breaking any passing records, but is special due to his ability to run the ball when needed. The former No. 2 overall pick is sixth amongst quarterbacks in rushing yards and has found the end zone on the ground twice this season. Washington is tied for fifth-most rushing touchdowns allowed to quarterbacks on the season, so this one lines up pretty well.
3. Jamison Crowder: Touchdown (+400)

This is something that has to happen. This isn't about Jamison Crowder tearing it up this season, as that simply isn't true, but he's the last-man standing in Washington. With Maurice Harris, Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis all out and Josh Doctson questionable with a back injury, Crowder is the Redskins' clear top receiving target. Tennessee also hasn't allowed a touchdowns to a tight end or running back through the air this season. If Johnson is going to pass for a touchdown this week, it's going to be Crowder who's catching it.
2. Away Team Total Points: Under 13 Points (-112)

Yes, 13 points is an extremely easy total to hit in the NFL, but there are just too many things going against the Redskins here. The Titans have given up the second-fewest points per game this season while Washington is 25th in scoring when on the road. As if that isn't enough, they're starting a quarterback who has seven career touchdown passes. Johnson has played well in small doses, but he hasn't faced a defense like Tennessee.
1. Derrick Henry to Rush for 100+ Yards and Titans Win (+142)

There has been no running back in football as hot as Derrick Henry as of late. With 408 yards and six touchdowns he's been unstoppable over the past two weeks. Of course, the Titans have won both contests behind this runaway train. Throw in the fact that the underdog Redskins are giving up 4.6 yards per carry to running backs this season and you can essentially guarantee Henry hits the century mark and that the Titans win.
