Odell Beckham really needs to have a big season with the Browns this year. His first two years with the team since Cleveland dealt for him from the Giants in 2019 have been a little underwhelming and marked by an ACL tear last year. If he can get back to producing like he did in his first three years in the NFL, he should be able to hit these overs pretty easy, but it’s no lock.

Here, we’ll take a look at the prop bets on the table for Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. on DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of the 2021 NFL season and make our picks.

925.5 receiving yards: Over (-115) or Under (-115)

Our pick: Over

Once upon a time the over/under for OBJ would have been much higher, closer to 1,100 yards, but after a frustrating two seasons in Cleveland, Beckham’s no lock to produce those kind of numbers anymore. He’s coming back from a torn ACL, an injury he suffered chasing down a defender who picked off a pass intended for him, suffered in Week 7 last season. That’s a big factor to weigh here, along with the fact that he’s only played a full season twice in his career. Still, if he’s mostly healthy and can make it on the field for at least 15 of the 17 games this season, he should be able to hit the over here.

6 receiving TDs: Over (+100) or Under (-130)

Our pick: Under

He did score three times in the seven games he played last season, but he found the end zone just four times the year before that with the Browns. It’s going to be hard to break six scores, something he hasn’t done since 2016.
