NFL Week 2 – Top Prop Bets to Make
Week 2 of the 2023 NFL season is underway, with the Eagles notching a 34-28 win over the Vikings on Thursday Night Football. Here are some prop bets we’re looking at for the remaining slate of games on Sunday available at all the top betting apps.
Bijan Robinson Rushing + Receiving Yards
- BetMGM: Over 76.5 (-115) / Under 76.5 (-115)
- Caesars: Over 76.5 (-133) / Under 76.5 (-103)
- DraftKings: Over 76.5 (-125) / Under 76.5 (-105)
It’s been years since a running back entered the league with the hype that came with Bijan Robinson. In his first week with the Atlanta Falcons, Robinson totaled 83 yards from scrimmage on 16 touches – or 56 yards on 10 carries and 27 yards on six catches. This came in spite of Robinson taking fewer carries than Tyler Allgeier, who ran for 75 yards on 15 carries, and an overall conservative approach to the passing game by Atlanta. Desmond Ridder completed 15 of 18 passes for only 115 yards; Robinson led the team in both yards and catches.
The Falcons are 1-0 after defeating the Carolina Panthers 24-10 with this approach, and they’ll get to play a second home game to open the season against the Green Bay Packers. The Packers stomped the Bears 38-20 last week, but their defense may not be nearly as ferocious as the Bears’ offense made them look. Robinson’s role in the offense figures to grow bigger as the season progresses, his Week 1 returns were promising, and the team may lean on him if the Packers prove to be a significantly bigger challenge.

Zach Wilson Passing Yards
- BetMGM: Over 180.5 (-115) / Under 180.5 (-115)
- Caesars: Over 180.5 (+100) / Under 180.5 (-137)
- DraftKings: Over 180.5 (-115) / Under 180.5 (-115)
- FanDuel: Over 174.5 (-114) / Under 174.5 (-115)
Of every moment that happened over the course of Week 1, few were nearly as deflating as Aaron Rodgers’ abrupt departure from Monday Night Football – and, presumably, the rest of this season – with a torn Achilles tendon. As things stand, NFL fans can expect to see Zach Wilson under center for the New York Jets unless poor play forces the organization to make a move.
Sportsbooks will be watching Wilson intently to manage expectations for him, and they’re not quite in lockstep out of the gate. Fans that expect little from the Zach Wilson experience might be interested in taking the under on his passing yards this week. The Jets are preparing to play a Dallas Cowboys defense that ruthlessly shut out the New York Giants last week, and Wilson only posted 140 passing yards against the Bills last Monday in what may as well have been a full game of playing time.
For fans looking to take the over, some sportsbook promos will offer better odds without moving the line. Wilson has made 23 starts in his career and eclipsed 180.5 passing yards on 11 occasions, so it’s hardly inconceivable that he’d do so again.

Bryce Young Passing Yards
- BetMGM: Over 196.5 (-115) / Under 196.5 (-115)
- Caesars: Over 196.5 (-119) / Under 196.5 (-115)
- DraftKings: Over 196.5 (-105) / Under 196.5 (-125)
- FanDuel: Over 189.5 (-114) / Under 189.5 (-114)
The Panthers are 0-1 in the Frank Reich and Bryce Young era heading into Monday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints. Young completed only 20 of 38 passes in the team’s loss to the Falcons last week, gaining only 146 yards and one touchdown against two interceptions. If Young is able to reach the passing yards line this week that most sportsbooks have for him, it’d represent a significant improvement from that performance.
Unfortunately for him, the Panthers are facing a Saints defense that soundly defeated the Titans offense in their 16-15 win last Sunday. Ryan Tannehill threw for 198 yards, barely passing the line set for Young, and threw three interceptions while failing to complete a touchdown pass. Most of the Titans’ passing success came through DeAndre Hopkins, who gained 65 yards on 7 catches in the loss. Young didn’t have a wide receiver secure more than two catches in the Panthers’ loss.
