Let’s take a look at some of this week’s top NFL receiving props and the latest odds.

The table below has the latest player props for the top receivers in this week’s games. When you click on a bet, it will direct you to the sportsbook to place it.

NFL receiving props for the conference championships

The postseason continues with this weekend’s conference championship games, and a number of the league’s top receivers will be in action. Beyond trying to figure out what’s in store for each of them, you can also explore other NFL player prop betting options:

For the receivers, legal online sportsbooks have multiple wagering options. Let’s run through some of the top NFL receiving props for this week.

Over/under receiving yard props for the NFL conference championships

For each of the top receivers set to see action, oddsmakers will post a line for total receiving yards. Bettors then get to wager whether receivers will go over or under their line. Here’s a look at the over/under receiving yard odds for the conference championship games.

Receiving TD prop bets for the NFL conference championships

You can also bet on which receivers will find the end zone. It’s a simple bet in concept — you’re either right or wrong on the selected player — but not necessarily the easiest to predict. Here are the latest lines for receiving TD prop bets for this week’s games.

Longest reception props for the NFL conference championships

Few things can get folks out of their seats like a long pass play, and bettors can try to figure out which receivers will make it happen. Are there any long bombs on the way for the conference championships? Here are a few longest reception prop bets for some of the top candidates.

What are NFL receiving props?

NFL receiving props cover various stats for pass catchers, including receptions, yardage and touchdowns. Each game will offer a number of such bets. You’ll also find season-long receiving props, including which player will lead the league in yards. Such props can be fun, and the returns can be great on winning wagers.

Which receivers have the best chance to lead the league this year?

Justin Jefferson entered the season as one of the top favorites to close out the campaign with the most receiving yards. The race was competitive for a good part of the season, but he managed to pull away and claim the crown in the end, finishing with 1,809 receiving yards. Tyreek Hill was next on the list with 1,710, with Davante Adams finishing in third with 1,516.  

Who led the NFL in receiving last season?

Cooper Kupp had a season for the ages last year, leading the league in receptions, yards and receiving touchdowns. Justin Jefferson and Davante Adams both had excellent seasons to finish second and third, respectively. Here’s how the top 10 shook out:

How to bet on receiving props

For the upcoming season, futures on the winner of the next Super Bowl came out before the current league year even came to a close. Other top futures bets, including season-long receiving props, come out after that. The menu of options may vary by sportsbook, but here’s a look at the top receiving bets that you’ll find.

Most receiving yards 

Sportsbooks will post odds for a number of season-long options, ranging from the top favorites to extreme long shots. Here’s an example using recent odds for a few favorites at DraftKings.

As you can see, the odds, even for the favorites, are pretty attractive. The numbers rise even further as you go down the list of choices. At +800, a $10 bet would win $80 if correct, while a $50 wager would have a chance to win $400.

For any season-long prop, you have to consider a number of variables, including injury risks and the overall productivity of the offense. The list of choices is long, so do your best to cut it down to your top picks and a few sleepers. You can then devote your research efforts to how those players may perform for the coming season.

Most receiving TDs

You can also bet on which player will have the most receiving TDs for the year. Once again, you’ll see an odds board similar to the one for receiving yards.

Kupp led the league with 16 receiving TDs last season. Mike Evans was second with 14, followed by Ja’Marr Chase with 13. DK Metcalf and Davante Adams rounded out the top five with 12 and 11, respectively.

Most receptions 

Players who lead the league in receptions tend to come from pass-heavy teams. You can bet on the league leader in this category, as well.

While the yardage leader has a shot here, too, possession receivers and go-to options are also candidates to consider. Kupp led the way with 145 last year, then Adams with 123.

Player over/unders 

There are also season-long over/under bets for top receivers. The wager works just like the weekly options, as sportsbooks will list a line plus odds for the receiver to go over or under that line.

The choice is simple: Will Chris Olave have over or under 4.5 receiving TDs for his rookie season? Based on the current odds, it looks like more bettors are expecting him to go under that line.

For the offseason, check back often for season-long over/under bets at your sportsbooks of choice and expect to see the options increase as the season approaches. Once the games that matter get underway, you’ll have plenty of receiving props to choose from for each individual game.

FAQ

What happens to season-long NFL props if a player gets injured?   

NFL season-long player prop bets will remain active regardless of the status of a single player. For example, if you placed a bet on a player to lead the league in receiving yards and he goes down to injury, your bet will lose. If that happens before the Week 1 games begin, and the injured player will be out for the whole season, then sportsbooks will void and refund bets on that player.

Which NFL player had the most receiving yards in a single season?  

Calvin Johnson of the Detroit Lions set the all-time single-season receiving yards record in 2012. He collected 1,964 yards on 122 receptions for the year.

Has a receiver ever won the NFL MVP award?  

No, a wide receiver has yet to win the NFL MVP. Cooper Kupp finished third last season. The Los Angeles Rams wideout then capped his stellar season by winning the Super Bowl MVP.
