MORE NFL TIPS: Get Leigh Copson's best bets for Week 4 & New Orleans v Miami at Wembley

Jarvis Landry over 75.5 receiving yards

It would be amiss of me to not post a bet for this week’s London clash of the Saints and Dolphins and it will pay to follow the fortunes of Jarvis Landry. The Miami wide out is one of the best slot receivers in the game and should have 10+ catches against a team that are struggling badly on defence. They have also had numerous problems covering dynamic receivers who start from the slot position.  Landry is Jay Cutler’s favourite receiver and has targeted him on 26 occasions in just two games. This should be a really high scoring affair as the Dolphins will need to keep tabs with the excellent offense of the Saints which should play into the hands of Landry.  

DeAndre Hopkins loves playing against the Tennessee Titans. In eight games against the NFC South rivals, the Texans star wide out has amassed 823 yards. He has surpassed the above total in six of them match ups and faces a Titans secondary that has struggled to contain star receivers in the first three weeks of the new season. Doug Baldwin, Michael Crabtree and Allen Hurns all finished with 80+ yards and that trend should continue with Hopkins the likely beneficiary. There is no doubting he is Deshaun Watson’ s favourite target and the rookie’s confidence will be brimming after last week’s performance against the Patriots. 

Odell Beckham Jr. over 88.5 receiving yards

Beckham looks back to full fitness and it would be a major surprise to not see him have a huge outing on Sunday. The Giants need a win badly and if they are to do that they will need one of the best receivers in the game playing at his best. The Buccaneers hold a decent pass defence but it finally looks like the Giants offense is coming together. Tampa Bay will be looking to build confidence after a disappointing loss last week and they will definitely score points on their own patch which could have the Giants chasing the game and Beckham leading the charge. The last time he played in Tampa he finished with a total of 105 yards after Manning targeted him a whopping 17 times.

AJ Green over 86.5 receiving yards

AJ Green is another player who is facing a team that has been torn to shreds by wide outs of late as he faces a deplorable Browns secondary. The Bengals speedster is five inches taller and 15 pounds heavier than any corner for Cleveland which points one thing, plenty of targets for Green and a number of deep balls thrown his way. That height advantage is key and it was Green’s display last week that really caught the eye. The star wide out was playing in a new offensive system under Bill Lazor and looked really comfortable within his role. He should thrive this week in what could be a high scoring affair.

Philip Rivers over 265.5 passing yards

Philip Rivers is one of my favourite QB’s in the NFL, as he is one of the most competitive players in the game.  Last week’s dismal performance will have hurt the pride of the 36 year old and it would be no surprise to see a 300 yard performance from Rivers against the Eagles. I’m expecting a really high scoring affair as the Eagles secondary are struggling to stop the pass this year and with Fletcher Cox’s participation in doubt, Rivers could be afforded more time than usual in the pocket. Eli Manning and Alex Smith have enjoyed decent outings against Philadelphia, and it would be no surprise to see the Chargers quarterback continues that trend. 

Dez Bryant over 64.5 receiving yards & first Dallas Cowboys touchdown

This is the week the Cowboys put up a huge score. The Rams are brimming with confidence at the moment and have an offense that has the potential to be anything over the next few years. But teams have scored against them in the past two weeks and there are question marks surrounding their defence at the moment. The Cowboys have faced top defences in their first three games with Bryant going up against some of the best corners in the game in Chris Harris and Patrick Peterson. The Rams do not possess a secondary of similar talent and this should be where Bryant breaks out. He has also scored 12 touchdowns in the last 14 games and should be followed to haul in a score over the course of the four quarters.

Brandon Marshall to score a touchdown @ 5/2 with Paddy Power

Marshall looked to be finally on the same wave length as Eli Manning last week as he caught eight passes for 66 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles. The former Jets wide receiver is still finding his feet in the Giants offense but he still remains a huge red zone threat. Any other season he would be odds of around 6/4 or 10/11, so the 5/2 looks value on what could be a day the men in blue score multiple touchdowns.
