NY Sports Betting Prop Bets: Buffalo Bills vs NY Jets Week 18
Online sports betting in New York launches at 9 a.m. ET on Saturday, allowing Caesars, DraftKings, FanDuel and Rush Street Interactive to go live finally.
This is huge news for football fans with it being the last weekend of the NFL regular season, meaning NY sports betting enthusiasts can place legal wagers throughout the playoffs and on the Super Bowl.
All eyes will be on the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets game as it’s a battle between two New York state teams, especially now with the launch of NY sports betting.
The game doesn’t mean much to the Jets since they’re out of the playoff picture. Still, they are coming off a riveting Week 17 game, nearly beating the defending Super Bowl champion Buccaneers, losing just 28-24.
The Bills have an AFC East division title riding on this game, and after the Jets’ performance last week, anything is possible.
Bills vs. Jets Prop Bets for Week 18
If you’re in the state of New York and new to sports betting, you might want to keep things relatively simple this weekend. Sticking to moneyline wagering or prop bets can be a great starting point for new bettors. However, the moneyline odds on the bills are sitting at a whopping -1125 on most sportsbooks.
For this game specifically, prop bets allow you to bet on something in the game that might not have anything to do with the final score or result. This is where you will find high value in games with giant spreads and unpredictable totals. There are team props, player props and game props to consider, especially if you aren’t sure who will win.
Let’s take a look at a few prop bets you can place this weekend on the New York Jets vs. Buffalo Bills game on Sunday, January 9th and which NY sportsbooks will offer these odds.
Josh Allen Rushing Yards (Over 35.5)
It is no secret that Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen is a threat in both passing and rushing yards. On average, Allen will gain over 40 rush yards per game — higher than his rushing player prop for the Week 18 game versus the Jets, ranked 29 in rush defense. Allen is reliable when taking the over in rush yards, specifically hitting the over in 10 of 16 opportunities.
The big question mark lies in whether Allen will take it easy this game to prevent an injury before the playoffs. With the division title on the line, we don’t believe so — but if the Bills generate any type of lead, you might see him sitting out later in the game.
Caesars Sportsbook has this Josh Allen player prop wager available with the best odds (-110) for NY sports bettors.
First Half Score Under 21
This game is expected to be relatively low scoring with just a 41-point total.
The oddsmakers seemed to have taken the approach to split that down the middle for the first and second half total points totals.
The line for the first half is set at 21, and while we have no doubt the Bills will come out of the gate strong, we think it’s going to be low-scoring early on, with less than 21 points scored in the first half.
Draftkings Sportsbook has this first-half points game prop available at (-110) for this AFC East NY team showdown.
Anytime Touchdown Scorer — Devin Singletary
After Week 17’s performance, Bills running back Devin Singletary has established himself as a threat on the offense.
With 23 carries for 110 yards and two TDs, he will be first in Allen’s mind at the line of scrimmage. Singletary’s performance at the last Jets meeting wasn’t overly impressive, but he did secure a TD with only seven touches and 43 rush yards.
We expect the ball to be on the ground most of this game — giving Singletary a great opportunity to get in the end zone.
FanDuel has just partnered with the Buffalo Bills, making them an excellent choice for new NY bettors and Bills fans! Head over and lock in this Singletary prop before Sunday.
