Fanelli’s Fave Five Prop Bets for SNF: Cleveland Browns vs. New York Giantsby Mike Fanelli December 20, 2020 0 comments
Tonight we have the second to last Sunday night game of the 2020 NFL regular season as the 9-4 Cleveland Browns take on the 5-8 New York Giants. The Browns need the win to stay ahead of the Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Wild Card race. Meanwhile, the Giants will be without Daniel Jones for this game and need this win to keep pace with the Washington Football Team in the race for the NFC East division title. With both teams in need of a win, gamblers should expect a close and competitive game.
The team’s fan base and fantasy football players will have their eyes glued to the game, watching every play with the utmost attention. For gamblers, their only rooting interest is whatever will lead to money in their pocket. However, which bets should they place? Here are my five favorite prop bets for tonight’s game.

Nick Chubb Over 73.5 Rushing Yards (-115)
The Browns are winning games this season, running the ball with their great running back duo of Chubb and Kareem Hunt. However, Chubb is clearly the lead back in this backfield as in the games he has finished this season, he is averaging 105 rushing yards per game. Furthermore, Chubb has rushed for at least 80 yards in seven straight games that he’s finished. Meanwhile, the Giants have struggled to stop the run at times this season. They are giving up an average of 83.2 rushing yards per game to running backs. However, they have given up 75 or more rushing yards to running backs in over half their games this season. Chubb should have no trouble rushing for at least 80 yards, if not 100, tonight.
Wayne Gallman to Score an Anytime Touchdown (+110)
Since taking over as the starting running back in Week 8, Gallman has played the best football of his career. Over his last seven games, Gallman has six rushing touchdowns as he has taken over as the featured back with Devonta Freeman on injured reserve. Meanwhile, the Browns have struggled to keep running backs out of the end zone this season, giving up 12 rushing touchdowns to the position. Furthermore, over their last three games, the Browns have given up five rushing touchdowns (one every 12 rushing attempts) to running backs. Colt McCoy will start at quarterback, and that means the Giants will rely on the running game even more.
Jarvis Landry Over 4.5 Receptions (-125)
Landry started the season slowly, averaging only 3.8 receptions per game over his first 10 games. However, over the last three weeks, Landry is back to his old self, averaging 7.3 receptions per game. He has seen a substantial uptick in targets over the past three weeks, averaging 10 per game after averaging 5.7 over the first 10 games of the season. Meanwhile, wide receivers are averaging 13.5 receptions per game against the Giants this year. Furthermore, the Giants will be without two of their top cornerbacks for tonight’s game as James Bradberry was placed on the Covid-19 list while the rookie Darnay Holmes is dealing with a knee injury. Landry has at least six receptions in three straight games, and tonight he will make it four in a row.
Wayne Gallman Over 13.5 Rushing Attempts (-102)
Over his last six games as the starter, Gallman has at least 12 rushing attempts in every game, averaging 16 per contest. During his time as the starter, Gallman is averaging 4.7 yards per attempt, rushing for over 50 yards in five straight games. Meanwhile, the Browns have struggled to stop the run at times this season as running backs are averaging 20.2 rushing attempts and 4.2 yards per attempt against them. Furthermore, running backs are averaging 22.2 rushing attempts for 4.6 yards per attempt over their last six games against the Browns. With a limited passing offense available with McCoy starting, don’t be surprised if Gallman has his third game this season with 18 or more rushing attempts.
Baker Mayfield Over 224.5 Passing Yards (-112)
Last week against the Baltimore Ravens, Mayfield had a season-high 343 passing yards. It was the second game in a row that Mayfield threw for over 330 yards. Furthermore, he has thrown for over 255 yards in three straight games. Meanwhile, the Giants are giving up an average of 261 passing yards per game, giving up over 225 in 62 percent of their games this season, including seven of their last nine. Mayfield won’t throw for 300 yards again this week, but with his recent success and the Giants’ recent struggles defending the pass, he should have no trouble throwing for over 250 yards for the fourth straight game.
