Best NFL Player Prop Picks for Christmas Day

The NFL has given its fans something to be excited about before the holiday weekend. They scheduled three games on Christmas Day, a delight for those fans who are not in the mood to watch basketball all day.

We’ve spent time studying the board for the slate and have come up with our favorite player prop from each game. All of the below are found on Underdog, we hope you’ll join us and make some extra Christmas cash together!

Rashee Rice OVER 6 Receptions

Travis Kelce, who? Rashee Rice is the new man in town for the Kansas City Chiefs. The rookie receiver has made a monumental impact on this team, quickly becoming Patrick Mahomes’ No. 1 target over the past several weeks. Kelce might be a longtime veteran, but with injuries and seemingly always being double-covered, Rice’s door has opened for additional targets.

We expect him to have his fingerprints all over this game, making several crucial plays throughout. Look for Rice to have closer to ten catches than six, hopefully making the over an easy win.

A.J. Brown OVER .5 Touchdowns (1.25X Boost!)

This might be a trap bet, but if it is, it’s a trap we don’t mind getting into. Brown has consistently been a top target for Jalen Hurts this season, a player who is as sure-handed as it gets. Brown hasn’t scored a touchdown in three weeks, so he seems due for one.

While that might be a bad reason to take the over on a player, we're taking the risk with the New York Giants having a banged-up secondary. We love the opportunity to use one of Underdog’s boosted lines, which is another reason we will take Brown to score!

Brock Purdy OVER 252.5 Passing Yards

At this point, it seems foolish to bet against Brock Purdy and the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers are on an impressive run, and while the Baltimore Ravens have one of the NFL’s best defenses, this offense seems to find a way.

Purdy is on an MVP-level pace to start the year, whether you like it or not. With the amount of playmakers around him, it seems like Purdy will shine on Christmas, cashing the over on 252.5 passing yards.
