Sam Darnold prop bets

  • Under 192.5 passing yards at -113 (FanDuel Sportsbook)

Baker Mayfield’s sensational debut for the Los Angeles Rams just two days after his release piles additional pressure on Sam Darnold ahead of his second start of the campaign. The quarterback made a solid impression versus the Denver Broncos before the bye, but this promises to be a completely different challenge for someone that’s got a history of folding under pressure.

Lumen Field is one of the most inhospitable atmospheres anywhere in the league. The fans are loud and with the promise of rain during the contest, Darnold has his work cut out making a similar impact on the road.

It’s not impossible, especially if Darnold manages the contest effectively as he did in Week 12. The former USC star doesn’t have to perform miracles in this system – being effective and playing turnover-free football is good enough.

We’ve seen on countless occasions what can occur when Darnold has to force the issue. Something the Carolina Panthers will be looking to avoid in their quest for a fifth triumph of the season and a fourth under Steve Wilks.

There’s just no telling for sure which way this is going to go for Darnold, in all honesty. And the Seattle Seahawks possess outstanding ballhawks within their secondary that can capitalize on mistakes in a heartbeat.

Factoring everything into the equation, wagering Darnold to throw less than 192.5 passing yards at -113 with FanDuel Sportsbook (bet $113 to win $100) looks like decent value.
