Kyler Murray

  • DeAndre Hopkins’s return has a strong impact on Kyler Murray, with past performances proving that betting on the quarterback’s player props to over is likely the best bet for Thursday Night Football.
  • Additional reasons to bet on Kyler Murray are his past performances as a home favorite and the absence of many of the Cardinal’s top running backs.

GLENDALE, Ariz. – Despite past performances by quarterbacks on Thursday Night Football, betting on the over for Kyler Murray’s player props at Bovada are some of the best values on the entire Week Seven slate.

Betting On Kyler Murray with DeAndre Hopkins

One of the biggest storylines in the NFL this season was that Marquise Brown was going to step into the Arizona Cardinal’s offensive system and instantly rekindle his collegiate connection with Marquise Brown and that connection would help the Cardinals overcome the six-week suspension of superstar receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

Brown put up some nice statistics this season, but the offense, and more importantly Kyler Murray, have struggled.

NFL betting sites are reading too much into the early season performance of Kyler when establishing his Thursday Night Football betting props.

Kyler Murray Thursday Night Football Betting Props

  • Passing Yards: 246.5 Yards (Over: -115, Under: -115)
  • Passing Touchdowns: 1.5 Touchdowns (Over: -105, Under: -125)
  • Interceptions: 0.5 Interceptions (Over: -125, Under: -105)

Splitting Kyler Murray’s performances into four distinct categories indicates how important DeAndre Hopkins is to Murray’s passing performance:

  • Career With Deandre Hopkins (26 Games): 259.73 Yards Per Game, 1.73 Touchdown Passes, 0.8 Interceptions
  • Career Without DeAndre Hopkins (26 Games): 238.08 Yards Per Game, 1.19 Touchdown Passes, 0.65 Interceptions
  • This Season Without DeAndre Hopkins (6 Games): 243.83 Yards Per Game, 1 Touchdown Pass, 0.67 Interceptions
  • Past Seasons Without DeAndre Hopkins (20 Games): 236.35 Yards Per Game, 1.25 Touchdown Passes, 0.65 Interceptions

Other Factors Pushing Kyler’s Totals Over

Outside of DeAndre Hopkin’s return, betting the over for Kyler Murray’s player props is the best bet at legal sports betting sites for two main reasons:

  • The Cardinals will likely be without James Conner again, leaving them with just Eno Benjamin. This means the Cards will be passing the ball to make up for their starting lineups.
  • In Kyler’s last ten games as a home favorite, he has averaged 294 passing yards, nearly 50 more passing yards than his prop! He has also thrown an interception in seven of those games.

Those increased passing opportunities for Kyler Murray, make his props bets even more likely to hit and secure their spot as the best bets for Thursday Night Football.
