While scrounging for NFL Prop Bets, one receiver I’ve had circled all week has been Buffalo’s Emmanuel Sanders, who is having a solid debut season with the Bills.

Sanders’s receiving yardage total is currently set at 62.5 yards, which is a number I like him to surpass.

Here are three reasons to support betting on Emmanuel Sanders to go over his receiving yards prop in Week 8.

His Season’s Production

Sanders has quickly solidified himself as the second wide receiver on this offense behind Stefon Diggs, and the gap is a lot narrower than you may think.

Through six games, Sanders has 413 yards, an average of 68.8 per game.

Sanders has also emerged as the deep-threat for the Bills, averaging 17.2 yards per catch and hauling in eight catches of 20 or more yards.

He’s an established vertical threat, and Allen targets him consistently. It’s the verticality that pushes this over the edge.

Miami’s Secondary Woes

The Dolphins have been getting gashed by receivers this season. Miami has given up 37 passes of 20 or more yards, by far the most in the NFL. They’re also a bottom-ten defense against the pass, allowing 7.6 yards per pass attempt.

Considering Sanders gets deep throughout the game, he shouldn’t face much resistance against this defense.

The Dolphins have allowed over 70% of opposing WRs to go over their receiving totals this season.

BetPrep Trends

The team at BetPrep supports betting Sanders’s over, considering their positive trends on his page:

  • He was caught for 63+ receiving yards in 7 of his last 8 (87.5%) games when he averaged at least 15 yards per catch previous game.
  • He was caught for 63+ receiving yards in 6 of his last 8 (75%) games when he averaged at least 10 yards per target previous match.
  • He was caught for 63+ receiving yards in 13 of his last 16 (81.25%) games when he averaged at least 0.65 receiving TDs per game.

Bet Sanders confidently on Sunday. Good luck!
