2. Taylor Heinicke over 18.5 rushing yards (-112)
We hammered Taylor Heinicke to finish with over 21 yards vs the Falcons and he cashed that bet with ease by taking off five times for 46 yards, which finished second behind Gibson for the team lead.
The Saints are no doubt a more disciplined group, but you can’t exactly game plan for impromptu scrambles, especially for a quarterback who’s as elusive and slippery as Heinicke. The 28-year-old is a nightmare to bring down once he gets a full head of steam in the open field.
We’re not expecting Heinicke to break off any big runs, but 19 yards is definitely feasible, especially if New Orleans’ defensive front generates pressure and he’s forced to scramble.
After all, Daniel Jones, who’s about half the athlete Heinicke is, compiled 27 rushing yards on four carries in the Giants’ 27-21 win over the Saints last week. All we need is a measly 19 yards from Heinicke for this bet to cash.
If you want in on the action, it’s currently at -112 odds, so bet $112 to win $100. You’ll have to bet extra to win a lot, but this seems worth it.
