Thursday Night Football Week 4: Joe Burrow, Tee Higgins, Tyreek Hill Player Prop Bets

The Dolphins and Bengals kick off Week 4 and have some exciting player prop bets for their superstars.

"Thursday Night Football" features two young and exciting teams, as the reigning AFC champion Bengals (2-1) host the undefeated Dolphins (3-0). Oddsmakers currently have the game total set at 47, the fourth highest of the week.

If you want to get in on the action, here are a few player props worth considering.

Joe Burrow over 271.5 passing yards (-110)

The Miami Dolphins have surrendered an average of 310 passing yards per game and I see Burrow taking full advantage of this on Thursday night. Despite their slow start, the Bengals looked much more like the reigning AFC champs last Sunday with Burrow tossing three TDs and spreading the ball around. The Dolphins are pressuring the QB only 13.3 percent of the time- the third-lowest mark in the league. Burrow has thrown for 272-plus yards in two out of three games this season, only falling short against a Cowboys team that has applied the second-highest QB pressure rate (37.2 percent).

Tee Higgins over 63.5 receiving yards (-130)

The Dolphins have surrendered the second-most passing yards and the 11th-most receiving yards across the first three games of the season. Higgins, after leaving the first game of the season with a concussion, has commanded a 24 percent target share across the past two games while also commanding a greater air yards share than Ja’Marr Chase. Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard will likely be tasked with shutting Chase down and that leaves the field wide open for Higgins. Higgins has surpassed this receiving yards prop in each of his past two contests.

Tyreek Hill anytime TD (+135)

The QB situation for Miami could be a tricky one, but with Jaylen Waddle dealing with a groin injury and the possibility that Teddy Bridgewater is under center, I am going to bet on a great veteran playmaker to find the end zone for the Fins at plus money.

Raheem Mostert over 38.5 rushing yards (-115)

For the second week in a row, Mostert logged more carries than Chase Edmonds out of the Miami backfield. Neither RB was very efficient vs. Buffalo, but with the question marks at QB for Miami, the run game will likely be more involved. This Bengals run defense has been good, allowing an average of only 71 yards per game, but I will bet that Mostert gets to 39 on the ground simply because he has more opportunity.
