Just one year after making his NFL debut and mere months after tearing his ACL, Joe Burrow will hit the field again, this time for his second NFL season.

Here, we’ll take a look at the prop bets on the table for the Cincinnati Bengals QB on DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of the 2021 NFL season and make our picks.

4,200.5 passing yards (Over -115, Under -115)

Our pick: Over

Analysis: In Burrow’s senior year of college at LSU, he turned in the best single-season performance by a QB in the history of college football. After taking a few games to get his feet wet in the pro ranks, he continued to show that talent and extreme potential. He finished last year with nearly 3,000 yards in just 10 games. I’m sure it’ll take a game or two to get comfortable again after his serious injury, but he should get back into a rhythm quickly.

Burrow also has a great group of young and talented pass catchers to help him. Former Clemson standout Tee Higgins will probably be WR1 in his second year in the league. He built a good rapport with Burrow last season, and the Bengals went out and built even stronger around him this offseason, nabbing Burrow’s former LSU teammate Ja’Marr Chase in the first round of the NFL Draft.

26.5 passing TDs (Over -110, Under -120)

Our pick: Under

Analysis: Moving the ball down the field and getting it into the endzone are different animals in the NFL. He had just 13 scores last year during his rookie campaign. No doubt that he’ll shatter that number, but doing more than doubling it seems like a big ask of the second-year QB, especially because his wideouts are still so young as well. Growing pains are bound to arise.

Go with the under here, but it’ll be close.
