I have a feeling that all of you thought I was joking when I said the quality of officiating would have a direct correlation to the success of my prop bets. Well, now you know and its time to stop holding back. I came roaring back into the green on the back of a few parlays and was a 0.5 Jamaal Charles rushing yard away from having one of my best weeks ever. Week 5: Roll with the momentum.

Week 5 Player Prop Bets:
300 Sand$ - Reggie Wayne (Colts) Total Receptions OVER 5.5 ( -115)
Wayne is averaging 13.3 targets per game and has yet to record less than six receptions. Indianapolis will most likely be playing from behind and that just means more passing!
100 Sand$ - Reggie Bush (Dolphins) Total Rushing + Receiving Yards UNDER 93.5 (-115)
Gut call of the week.
100 Sand$ - BenJarvus Green-Ellis (Bengals) Total Rushing Yards UNDER 74.5 (-115)
I think Miami's run defense matches up very well against Cincinnati and Green-Ellis. I don't think they are as terrifying as their stats make it seem. Miami had three cupcake games against running backs from the New York Jets, Arizona Cardinals, and Oakland Raider (Relax. Before you get all "what about Darren McFadden???" on me, you need to look at his stats. He is a whopping 56 for 137 if you take out his one 64 yard run against Pittsburgh. Or as I like to call it - 2.5 yards per carry.)
300 Sand$ - Marshawn Lynch (Seahawks) Total Rushing Yards OVER 100.5 (-115)
It's the Carolina Panthers.
100 Sand$ - Russell Wilson (Seahawks) Total Passing Yards OVER 198.5 (-115)
It's the Carolina Panthers. Also, Chris Gamble is most likely out for Sunday's...
