NFL Player Props: Seahawks Stars Shine On Sunday

The NFL regular season wraps up on Sunday with a handful of mammoth matchups that will decide top seeds and playoff spots.

The stars should be out in some of the bigger games in Week 18 as teams fight for their postseason lives.

Here are four player props to consider from football betting sites.

Nick Chubb – over 71.5 yards

The Cleveland Browns might be out of the playoffs, but they still have something to play for on Sunday.

Their opponent and division rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers, have a shot at the playoffs, and there’s nothing the Browns would like more than to rain on their parade.

Nick Chubb has been in a five-game touchdown drought, but he’s still been piling up the yards. The Browns’ back has gone over 71.5 in five of his last six games, including the previous three.

As usual, he should see the ball early and often. We expect the league’s second-leading rusher (1,448) to have another solid day.

Josh Allen – over 40.5 rushing yards

The Bills still have a shot at the first seed in the AFC, so you can expect Josh Allen to leave it all on the field. He’s been running rampant recently and has gone over 40.5 yards in seven of his last nine contests.

The Wyoming product had 14 yards on the ground through the first ten minutes against the Bengals last game before the match was canceled.

With a combination of designed QB runs and a few broken plays, Allen should rack up enough rushing yards to hit the over in this one.

Geno Smith – over 238.5 passing yards

There’s no hiding that Geno Smith has been slumping in the second half. After setting the league ablaze early in the season, Smith has thrown for fewer than 240 yards in three straight.

But this is a big one for the Hawks, and we expect Geno to finish the season strong. Seattle can still get into the playoffs with a win and a Green Bay Packers loss or tie.

The 32-year-old pivot lit up the Rams the last time they played on Dec. 4. Smith threw for a season-high 367 yards and added a trio of passing TDs.

D.K. Metcalf – longest reception over 22.5

For the same reason we like Geno to have a big day, we like Metcalf to show out. Like Smith, Metcalf torched the Rams when they last met.

The hulking wideout had his second-highest receiving yard total of the season (127) and hauled in a TD pass.

The Rams have been solid against the run this season (109.9, 10th), which could limit Seattle’s ground game and open things up through the air.

Expect the Seahawks to finish strong in front of their home crowd in a last-ditch effort to make the postseason.
