LSU and Florida State will go head to head to kick off the season in what should be a great game between two Top 10 teams. LSU fell just short of a comeback last season when an extra point was blocked with no time remaining on the clock. We are picking a side or total on this game as part of our VIP Card today but here are some player props that are worth targeting in tonight's matchup.
Florida State vs LSU Player Prop Picks
Johnny Wilson Total Receptions Over (2.5)
Johnny Wilson is a playmaker and he averaged 20.9 yards per reception last season so when he makes a catch, it's usually a big one.
He only went 5-5 against this 2.5 reception number in the regular season which is a little scary at a 50/50 chance but he did haul in 8 catches in the final game of the season in the Cheez-It Bowl. He either just really likes Cheez-Its or he is going to be a go to guy for Jordan Travis this season. I'll bet both.
If your book offers a prop for his longest reception and the number is anywhere around 21, I would take it because he went over that in 10 of his 12 games last season!
Malik Nabers Total Receptions Over (4.5)
Malik Nabers had himself some BIG games down the stretch last season going over 125 receiving yards in 3 of his final 4 games of the season. He really became a go to guy for Jayden Daniels.
Nabers had over 4.5 receptions in 5 of his final 6 games last season
Nabers had 5 catches against Florida State last season.
He should be involved heavily in the offense tonight and go over 4.5 catchers for us.
Jayden Daniels Total Rushing Yards OVER (45.5)
Jayden Daniels is an athlete and he won't hesitate to take off running in this game tonight. He ran for 114 yards against this Florida State defense last season and averaged 7.1 yards per carry.
There's a lot of hype around the defensive front for Florida State and rightfully so. The Noles will get pressure on Daniels tonight but I think that works in our favor for this rushing prop because it will give him lanes to take off running and will force him to do so at times.
Look for him to make some plays with his feet and go over for us tonight.
I think there's value on taking him as an Anytime TD Scorer at even money as well.
