Top 5 Player Props For Week 1

Here are the top 5 player props to bet on for Week 1 of the NFL season.

Top 5 Player Props For Week 1

The 2023/2024 NFL Season kicked off last night with the Lions taking down the reigning champs. We now look ahead to a full Sunday of NFL action and the 5 best player props to bet on!

1) Joe Burrow OVER 1.5 TD Passes (-158): Joe Burrow is fresh off his brand new contract making him the highest-paid player in NFL history. With that new pay raise it is time for him to show off the goods. In both matchups against the browns last season Burrow threw for 2 TDs. Expect him to hit that mark again in Week 1.

2) Calvin Ridley OVER 4.5 Receptions (-158): The Jags offense was high flying last year and Calvin Ridley is the newest toy for Trevor Lawerence to play with. The last time Ridley played he was averaging 6 receptions a game. The colts are not a big time defense by any means. Expect Ridley to get involved early and oftern and going over this reception total by halftime.

3) Aaron Jones OVER 56.5 Rushing Yards (-114): Aaron Rodgers is gone and it is time for Aaron Jones to finally be featured for the STAR he is. Last season Jones averaged 66 rushing yards per game behind an injuried offensive line. This season the Packers O-line is back healthy and looks to be one of the better lines in the league. With a new QB expect the Packers to establish the run against a lousy Beats defense.

4) Darren Waller OVER 49.5 Receiving Yards (-114): Staying on theme with shiny new toys, Daniel Jones has one in Darren Waller. All offseason we have heard about how strong of connection Jones and Waller have made and the expectation is that Waller gets fed the ball as the number 1 recieving option. I mean who else is Jones going to through the ball to.. Isiah Hodgins?

5) Diontae Johnson Anytime TD Scorer (+290): This one is simple for me. Johnson went the entire last season without recording a TD catch. He was playing the full season too, having 147 targets and 86 receptions, but still 0 TD catches. Positive regression is a real thing and that goose egg is going to go away in Week 1.

BONUS PICK: Jahan Dotson First TD Scorer (+800): This is strcitly a gut feeling based on how well he looked playing with Sam Howell in the preseason.

If you are feeling confident in these picks like I am a parlay will net you out a juicy +3564 odds for a nice payday. As always please gamble responsibly.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
