PrizePicks is technically a fantasy sports site, although they allow you to wager on a series of prop bets within their platform. They are legal in 30 states as well, including some places that don’t allow sports betting at the moment. 

You can read more details on how and where to play Prizepicks by clicking here. 

Another cool thing about PrizePicks is that they have college football props listed. I have perused those lines to find the best College Football Prop Bets for Week 4 – all of which can be found on the PrizePicks app. 

With that, let’s get to the best props! 

Treyson Potts – RB – Minnesota: OVER 21 Fantasy Points

Mo Ibrahim of Minnesota was regarded as one of the best college football running backs heading into the season. Unfortunately, the Gophers lost him to a leg injury after one game. 

Enter Treyson Potts. 

Potts has served as a capable replacement for Ibrahim, averaging 30 carries, 150 yards, and 2.5 TDs in two starts. There’s a great chance he’ll replicate those numbers against a suspect Bowling Green defense. Potts only needs 100 yards with two touchdowns to exceed this fantasy total. That seems like a cakewalk when considering his recent production. 

He’s the prized pick of this PrizePicks slate. See what I did there? 

Tayon Fleet-Davis – RB – Maryland: OVER 77.5 Rushing Yards

Fleet-Davis checks all the boxes to hit over on this rushing prop. He’s a talented and explosive runner who should have game flow on his side. The Maryland RB will look good doing it as well, wearing those sweet Terrapin uniforms. 

Making matters even better, this is literally one of the best matchups for a running back. 

Kent State is terrible against the run, allowing 6.5 yards per attempt this season. The Golden Flashes currently rank 117th of 130 teams in rushing defense. 

Fleet-Davis is averaging 84 yards per game this season alongside a robust 6.8 yards per attempt. It’s difficult to envision a scenario where he doesn’t go over 77.5 rushing yards. 

Jo’quavious Marks – RB – Mississippi State: OVER 5 Receptions

Mississippi State loves to throw the ball under Mike Leach’s “air raid” scheme. That includes a healthy dose of swing passes to the running back, which serves as an extended handoff. 

Marks has caught 22 passes across three games in that role. He has gone over the five reception threshold in all of those contests. 

I don’t see things changing in a competitive, high-scoring contest with LSU. Marks should continue to see plenty of targets and check-down opportunities to make easy receptions. It doesn’t hurt that Mississippi State could throw the ball 60+ times. 

More College Football Props To Consider

Tanner Morgan (QB – MIN) UNDER 201 Passing Yards. This correlates well with Potts’ prop earlier in the article. The Gophers will be running the ball early and often against Bowling Green. Morgan went under this passing prop in every game this season, except he had 205 yards against Ohio State. Minnesota was forced to throw in that game. That won’t be the case on Saturday.

Mataeo Durant (RB – DUKE) OVER 99.5 Rushing Yards. Durant is averaging 22-133-2 in three games this season. Now he’s facing a Kansas team that ranks 119th in run defense while allowing 6.1 yards per carry. You could take Durant over 21.5 fantasy points as well. 

Christian Beal-Smith (RB – WF) OVER 74.5 Rushing Yards. Game flow should be on the side of Wake Forest’s RB. The matchup looks great against a Virginia team that has given up 6.9 yards per carry this season. Only three of 130 teams have been worse.
