Las Vegas Raiders vs. New York Giants Player Props (11/7/21)

The Raiders have had a tough week, and while we won’t get into the specifics in this article, it’s important to note that Henry Ruggs III is no longer on the team. The Giants’ defense has been vulnerable this season, so the matchup should provide an opportunity for player prop betting even without Ruggs on the field. New York also has some intriguing players you can bet on in this game. Let’s take a look at the top player props available.

Las Vegas Raiders Vs. New York Giants Player Prop Search Tool

Josh Jacobs Over 60.5 Rushing Yards

The Raiders’ running back tends to have his best games when the team wins, and they are favored in this game. In 16 career wins with the Raiders, Jacobs has averaged 84.9 rushing yards per game. The Giants have allowed 123.2 rushing yards per game this season, the tenth-most in the NFL and rank 21st in the NFL in run defense DVOA as a season-ending injury to inside linebacker Blake Martinez has hampered the team’s front seven. Jacobs has not run for 60 yards this season, but the Raiders are coming off their bye week which should have given him the necessary time to recover from a chest injury that previously limited his play. In a plus matchup and likely positive game script, I’m expecting a heavy dose of Jacobs – at the time of this writing, I have him projected for 71.8 rushing yards this week.


Hunter Renfrow Over 5.5 Receptions

Aside from the obvious heartbreak and regret associated with the Henry Ruggs incident, there are significant implications for the Raiders’ offense. Hunter Renfrow had already caught 6+ passes in three of his last four games, and he’s a good bet to see an uptick in snaps and target share as the top wide receiver for his team moving forward. Darren Waller should be back to full health and is no longer listed on the injury report, but Bryan Edwards has been unable to string together consistent play thus far in his career and Renfrow will be very necessary to keep the chains moving for the Raiders. James Bradberry and Adoree’ Jackson are solid perimeter corners, but Darnay Holmes and Julian Love can be exploited in the slot.


Devontae Booker Over 3.5 Receptions

The Raiders have a dominant pass-rush featuring Maxx Crosby, Yannick Ngakoue, and Carl Nassib, and the Giants’ offensive line will be no match for that fearsome unit. As a result, New York will need to add a lot of check-down and short-area passing options for Daniel Jones to be able to get rid of the ball quickly, and Booker specializes in that area of the field. Since taking over as the starting running back in Week 5 following Saquon Barkley’s injury, Booker has averaged 3.5 receptions per game. He’s been over that line in two of the four games. If you factor in those stats, this should be priced as a coin flip, but the over is getting significant plus money. Add in the fact that the Raiders are ranked 20th in pass defense DVOA against running backs, and I love the plus money odds on this prop.


Daniel Jones Over 22.5 Rushing Yards

I’ve been back-and-forth on this line as Daniel Jones is a very capable rushing quarterback, but he has run for 23+ yards just once over his last four games. However, he surpassed this number in each of his first four games of the season and is averaging 6.0 yards per attempt throughout his career. The Raiders have struggled against mobile quarterbacks this season as they’ve allowed Lamar Jackson (86 yards), Jalen Hurts (61 yards), and even Jacoby Brissett (37 yards) to have significant rushing output against them. As a quick side note, don’t parlay this bet with the Devontae Booker receptions bet. In order for Jones to run for a decent amount of yards, it likely means he isn’t checking the ball down as much and is taking off when the pocket collapses. There is a world where both bets hit, but they don’t have a strong correlation.
