Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen has been one of the most steady producers in the NFL at the wide receiver position. There’s no reason to think he won’t be posting big numbers again in 2021, especially with an extra game on the schedule this year.

Here, we’ll take a look at the prop bets on the table for Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen on DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of the 2021 NFL season and make our picks.

1025.5 receiving yards: Over (-110) or Under (-120)

Our pick: Over

Allen blew past this number for three straight seasons prior to last year. He would have made it in 2020 had he not been shutdown by landing on the COVID list ahead of Week 15, costing him the final two games. Being team’s top option on short and intermediate throws means he’s going to have all the opportunities in the world to produce big numbers.

6.5 receiving TDs: Over (-110) or Under (-120)

Our pick: Over

His eight touchdown last season matched his career high. He’s going to get his looks in the end zone and anytime the Chargers get inside the 25. While tight end Jared Cook is going to score his fair share, Allen’s just too irresistible a target with the goal line in sight.

98.5 receptions: Over (-115) or Under (-115)

Our pick: Over

Allen was on his way to a new career high in receptions before getting shut down last season with 100 in 14 games. His previous best was 104. As long as he can play 15 or more games, he should hit the over on this one.
