TNF Player Prop Picks: The Best Bet for Browns vs. Broncos

The NFL is back on Thursday night and with it comes all kinds of NFL player prop opportunities. We have to be careful though because the Thursday night games are a little different than the Sunday slate. The players don't have as much rest and things can look a little different because of it. Still, we have to bet these games because it would be irresponsible not to. We only have so many Thursdays every year with NFL football. We need to make the most of every single one.

Here's what I had in mind for the Denver Broncos and Cleveland Browns matchup.

Thursday Night Football NFL Player Prop Pick

Teddy Bridgewater Over 1.5 Passing TDs (+124)

I used FanDuel here. but in reality. you can use any of the big three. FanDuel has 1.5 for +124 but both BetMGM and DraftKings are hanging the same number for +120. Not a big difference but I'm a guy who watches all of my pennies in the NFL player prop market.

What if I told you that Teddy Bridgewater has thrown at least two touchdowns in every game he's played this season? It's not true so there's that but he has done it in four of the six games he's played this season. He left one of those games early too and he had already thrown a touchdown that day. Bridgewater is a guy who can do this all the time.

The thing about this game is the Browns don't give up many rushing touchdowns. In fact, only five teams have given up fewer rushing touchdowns to running backs this season than they have. When Teddy and the Broncos get into the red zone, they are going to need to throw the ball.

Cleveland can be had in this area which is cause for comfort. On the year, only two teams in the NFL have given up more passing touchdowns than the Browns.

We don't need Teddy to do anything special to get home on this number. Just throw two touchdowns and we're good. Seems easy enough for me.
