Broncos vs Rams Prop Bets

Here are three of the best prop bets for the Broncos vs Rams matchup, courtesy of NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Broncos vs Rams Week 16 Prop Bets Tonight

1. Baker Mayfield — Passing Yards: Under 184.5 (-114)

Baker Mayfield was fairly quiet in his first official start with the Rams, completing just 12-of-21 passes for 111 yards against the Green Bay Packers. Don't be shocked if Mayfield finishes with the under on this prop again on Sunday as he must face a tough Denver defense. The Broncos allow just 182.6 passing yards per game on the road (No. 4) and have held opposing quarterbacks to fewer than 184.5 yards in three of their last four games overall. Considering how the Rams are also without the majority of their key pass-catchers, I see Mayfield having another down performance this weekend.

2. Latavius Murray — Rushing Yards: Over 62.5 (-114)

Latavius Murray looked terrific against the Arizona Cardinals last week, turning 24 carries into 130 rushing yards. Although the Rams allow the fourth-fewest rushing yards (104.5), I can still see Murray going over his projected total. For starters, the Rams have been allowing more rushing yards lately, giving up an average of 131.0 over their last three games (13th-worst). LA also allowed a running back to go over 62.5 rushing yards in each of the last two games. With this contest shaping up to be an evenly-matched affair, I can see the Broncos running the ball a lot, leading to Murray finishing with the over.

3. Jerry Jeudy — Any Time Touchdown (+195)

Jerry Jeudy has established himself as Russell Wilson's go-to weapon over the last two weeks. The third-year wideout has been targeted 17 times over that span, hauling in 15 balls for 149 receiving yards and three touchdowns. With fellow Denver wide receiver Courtland Sutton being questionable (hamstring), I can see Jeudy having a big game again that includes scoring a TD. The Rams have allowed the sixth-most total receptions to wideouts (194), so there should be plenty of opportunities for Jeudy to at least get close to the end zone. Furthermore, LA's 12 TDs allowed to the position are tied for the 12th-most in the NFL. If the Broncos are going to win, Jeudy will likely need another big performance, so don't be shocked if he finds a way to, somehow, fall into the end zone again.
