Covering the Spread: NFL Player Props and Projections With JJ Zachariason

What broad factors do we need to consider when making prop bets in football? And which props for 2019 present us with some value?

In the debut episode of Covering the Spread, The Power Rank's Ed Feng and numberFire's Jim Sannes introduce the podcast and their vision behind the show. JJ Zachariason of numberFire and FanDuel joins the guys to discuss how he builds football projections, what he looks for in season-long prop bets, and some bets that stand out to him as presenting value for 2019. Finally, Ed discusses why the Minnesota Vikings should be on the radars of futures bettors, and Jim runs through Alex Bregman's MVP odds and Alex Bowman's shot to win the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championship.
