As one of the top-rated online sportsbooks in the game today, you can always rely on HRWager for all of your online betting needs. Along with a full-service sportsbook covering all the daily action, you can bet the horses through the online racebook or play a few Vegas-style games in the online casino.
One of the big reasons true players love HRWager is the overall diversity of its betting board. A perfect example of this is a list of special Cam Newton betting props ahead of his NFL debut with the New England Patriots.
With the total starts set at 10.5 games, the odds favor the OVER at -145. The betting odds for the UNDER are set at +105. This is based on a full 16-game schedule.
The value in this prop leans towards the UNDER. There is no guarantee that Newton will be New England’s starter in Week 1. Head coach Bill Belichick could still go with Brian Hoyer or even Jarrett Stidham as his top QB.
Newton’s recent track record with injuries is another reason to grab the plus money value betting the UNDER 10.5 on total starts.
Betting the next four props hinges on Newton winning the starting job. Going with the notion he does get the nod, I would go with the OVER on passing yards. In nine seasons with Carolina, Newton started at least 14 games in each of his first eight years. He also threw for at least 3,120 yards in each of those seasons.
Cam Newton Total Touchdown Passes
The total for passing touchdowns is set at 22. The odds are set at -120 for either side of this prop.
Newton has thrown for at least 22 touchdowns four times in his NFL career. It is doubtful that Belichick will look to air things out like he did when Brady was in his prime. A more conservative approach to scoring touchdowns favors the UNDER in this prop.
Cam Newton Total Rushing Yards
This prop has the total rushing yards set at 550.5. The betting odds favor the UNDER at -135 with -105 odds for the OVER.
Newton crossed the 500-yard rushing threshold in six of his first eight seasons. He will most likely produce a few highlight-reel scrambles in the 2020 campaign but it will not add up to more than 550 yards. Stick with the UNDER in this prop.
When it comes to rushing touchdowns, the odds favor the OVER on 5.5 at -130. The betting odds are -110 for the UNDER.
As one of the more athletic players at the quarterback position, Newton has been able to use his size and strength to score 58 rushing touchdowns over the course of his NFL career. At 6-foot- 5, 245 lbs., he becomes an immediate goal line scoring threat as a runner. This adds value to the higher-risk odds for the OVER.

A big part of the services that my marketing company, Blue Pointe Advisors, LLC offers is written content for sports betting websites. I have been working as a full-time sports betting writer for the past nine years following a previous career in the field of sales and marketing.
I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to write about my true passion in life; the world of sports. I also enjoy concentrating the bulk of my pieces towards the betting angle in sports.
It is always a challenge to take past results and current form to try and correctly determine a future result. Sports brings out the unpredictability in what should be a fairly predictable outcome based on the stats, facts and recent trends in a particular matchup. The one thing that I have learned over the past decade or so is that when it comes to betting on sports there is no such thing as a lock.
The main objective with my writing style is to create insightful articles on a wide variety of sporting topics that can provide an edge to today's sophisticated online player. While there are times when my predictions fall well short of the actual outcome, I still enjoy trying to come up with a logical explanation to support my views on every pick I make.
My love of sports started a long time ago when I was just a kid growing up just outside Philadelphia. While I was a big Phillies, Flyers and 76ers fan, my number one team was always the Eagles. My dad was a season ticket holder from 1961 to 2002 and I would honestly say that he missed less than a handful of games than more than a few dismal seasons.
I was fortunate enough to go to a number of Eagles’ games back in the day including the 1980 NFC Championship when Wilbert Montgomery ran roughshod over the bitter rival Dallas Cowboys to lead Philly to their first appearance in a Super Bowl. Flash forward 40 years later and am I still celebrating the thrilling victory over New England in Super Bowl LVII. I know that my dad was smiling down on that one.
