Hansen's Best Bets: Week 8


Last Week’s ATS Record: 0-1

Best Bets ATS Record (Season): 10-7

Totals Record: 2-3


Green Bay Packers at Arizona UNDER 50.5 points — The Packers are obviously dealing with a lot of injury issues, and they face a tougher opponent this week on the road, so that’s one element. Kyler Murray is playing very well, but DeAndre Hopkins is also quite banged up, which could help push this total down a little.

Player Props

Last week: 4-4

Player Props Record: 62-55

Antonio Gibson OVER 51.5 rushing yards (-110 DK) — Feel good about this one.

James Robinson OVER 69.5 rushing yards (-114 FD) — Game should be close, and he’s been amazing.

TJ Hockenson OVER 4.5 receptions (-158 FD) — The Eagles defense is a mess and offers up all kinds of open spaces.

Jalen Reagor OVER 29.5 receiving yards (-114 FD) — He’s gotta hit this with such a good matchup. He can hit it on one play.

Matthew Stafford UNDER 35.5 attempts (-110 BETMGM) — I don’t see him throwing it this much.

Carson Wentz OVER 32.5 attempts (-110 BETMGM) — I don’t see him throwing it this much.

Kenny Gainwell OVER 30.5 attempts (-120 BETMGM) — This is definitely too low.

Zach Moss OVER 48.5 rushing yards (-105 DK) — I think he will close them out with 75+ rushing yards.

Cooper Kupp UNDER 95.5 receiving yards (-125 DK) — Texans have a good slot corner, don’t think they will throw it much.

Cooper Kupp UNDER 95.5 receiving yards (-125 DK) — Texans have a good slot corner,


Randall Cobb OVER 4.5 receptions (-150 DK) — The odds are really bad as of Thursday afternoon, so I’d understand if you ignore this. But I do think Cobb’s a lock for 5 catches.

Aaron Jones OVER 63.5 rushing yards (-115 DK) — I thought the total yardage prop would be more appealing, but DK’s 114.5 number is only .5 yards off my total. However, I have Jones with 80 yards on 16.5 carries. That’s 4.9 YPC, but the Cards are giving up 4.5 and Jones is at 5.1 the last four weeks. I just haven’t seen enough of AJ Dillon to think he’s a threat, so I think Jones will get 20-25 opportunities.

Christian Kirk OVER 45.5 receiving yards (-115 DK) — It’s a little dangerous to back a Cardinal receiver because there are so many of them. But DeAndre Hopkins is banged up, and I have Kirk with 13.5 more yards than this (59). It’s not a huge discrepancy, but I’m not worried about his matchup in the slot with Jaire Alexander still missing.
