GLENDALE, Ariz. – The Houston Texans (+850) and Arizona Cardinals (-1700) will take part in what’s expected to be a lopsided contest. However, this allows players to hit their prop totals for sports bettors.
James Conner Rushing Attempts: OVER 13.5
James Conner is the running back on the Arizona Cardinals who gets the most work in the rushing game. He’s averaging 13.2 carries per game and his set total on legal sports betting sites is on par with his season average.
James Conner’s Rushing Attempts
- OVER 13.5 -110
- UNDER 13.5 -120
The Cardinals should be trying to take advantage of the second-worst rushing defense in the NFL that allows 141.3 rushing yards per game. Plus, being 18-point favorites, there should be more than enough time in the game for the Cardinals to start chewing the clock up and get Conner OVER his rushing attempts total.
Mark Ingram Rushing Yards: OVER 40.5
Mark Ingram has ran for more than 40 yards in four of his six games this season, including each of his last two outings. Those betting on the NFL can find his line in a seemingly achievable spot for Sunday.
Mark Ingram’s Rushing Yards
- OVER 40.5 -115
- UNDER 40.5 -115
The Cardinals defense allows 128.0 rushing yards per game and even with the unfavorable game script, the Houston Texans will likely be trying to take as much pressure off of Davis Mills as possible.
Ingram also doesn’t have too much competition for carries as he has taken 60.5% of the total carries between himself, Phillip Lindsay and David Johnson.
Brandin Cooks Receptions: OVER 5.5
The biggest bright spot on Houston’s roster has unquestionably been Brandin Cooks. He’s averaged 6.7 receptions and 80.2 yards per game and yet sportsbooks have his total set below his season average.
Brandin Cooks’ Receptions Total
- OVER 5.5 -110
- UNDER 5.5 -110
The game script favors him in that the Texans will be behind in the game playing catch up and as the number one option in the receiving game, Cooks should see enough volume to see this total hit.
The game wills start at 4:25 p.m. EST and can be seen on CBS.
