Each week I dig through player props and attempt to pick out the most attractive opportunities. After all, betting is all about finding bad odds and exploiting them! The Sand$ represents how much I am wagering and ultimately how confident I am in each bet. The money line is displayed at the end of each bet. Like a point spread, the money line is used to even out the attractiveness of both sides. For example, a negative line of -115 would require a bet of 115 Sand$ in order to win 100 Sand$. A positive line of +130 would return 130 Sand$ when a bet of 100 Sand$ is placed.
Occasionally, I will put out a parlay bet as well. A parlay is a single bet that links together two or more individual wagers and is dependent on all of those wagers winning together. The benefit of the parlay bet is much better odds than placing each individual bet separately since the difficulty of hitting it is much higher.

Week 11 Player Prop Bets
200 Sand$ - Matt Ryan (Atlanta) Total Touchdown Passes UNDER 2.5 (-115)
Arizona has the second best pass defense through 10 weeks. With Julio Jones banged up and Patrick Peterson covering Roddy White, Ryan will have a fine game but throw for less than three touchdowns.
100 Sand$ - Vincent Jackson (Tampa Bay) Total Receptions OVER 4.5 (-160) AND Mike Williams (Tampa Bay) Total Receptions OVER 3.5 (-130)
Gut parlay of the week!
400 Sand$ - Mark Sanchez (New York Jets) Total Completions UNDER 19.5 (-115) The same under bet for the same Sanchez. Maybe he'll get benched mid game or just quit all together.
400 Sand$ - Danny Amendola (St. Louis) Total Receiving Yards OVER 65.5 (-115) The clear cut No. 1 receiver for the Rams is back. Amendola is averaging 12 targets per game and will not have a problem eclipsing 66 yards against the Jets.
500 Sand$ - Denarius Moore (Oakland) Total Receptions OVER 4.5 (+105)
Moore is averaging seven targets and four receptions per game. The odds on this bet and the matchup against a terrible New Orleans defense makes this a fantastic play.
200 Sand$ - Matthew Stafford (Detroit) Total Touchdown Passes OVER 2 (+105) The Green Bay/Detroit game should prove to be a high-scoring affair. Stafford seems to have found a grove that should pay dividends this weekend.
200 Sand$ - Houston will score 4.5 MORE points than Carolina (-105)
