Receiver Antonio Brown plays in his first game in almost 14 months when he and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the New Orleans Saints in a battle between the NFC South’s top two teams on Sunday Night Football at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. Since the end of the 2018 season, Brown has played in only one game but has been on four teams: Steelers, Raiders, Patriots and Buccaneers. On Sunday he returns from a suspension and makes his Tampa Bay debut. 

William Hill Sportsbook has set the total for Brown’s receptions at 3.5 (-105 over, -125 under) and receiving yards at 38.5 (-110 over, -120 under). Those are just two of hundreds of different NFL player prop pick opportunities for Week 9 of the NFL season. Before locking in any NFL prop bets, you need to see what SportsLine Fantasy and sports betting expert Jen Ryan has to say.

So far this season she has been excellent with her NFL prop bets, going 24-15 and returning $743. This week, Ryan has attacked the NFL player props from William Hill and found five strong bets. You can only see them here.

Top NFL player prop bets for Week 9

Ryan loves Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey to go over 49.5 total rushing yards (-115) in his game against the Chiefs. The multipurpose running back has not played since suffering a high ankle sprain in Week 2 against Tampa Bay. Prior to the injury he had rushed for 156 yards and four touchdowns.

“How is his line 49.5 and how much is too much to bet on the over?” Ryan tells SportsLine. “This is one of the most talented backs to touch a football. This line is just way too low. In fact, his total rushing and receiving yards line (89.5) is low, too.”

Ryan also is high on a receiver to score a touchdown and pay plus-money, and who it is may shock you. “He just has to catch one of the deep shots,” Ryan tells SportsLine. She’s only sharing who it is, and all of her top NFL prop picks,here.
