The LA Chargers take on the Washington Football team in Week 1 of the 2021 NFL season and we here at Bolt Beat have covered the game from top to bottom.

From looking at the most important matchups in the game, to comparing the rosters, to giving the keys to victory to even predicting the who covers against the spread, there is a ton to catch up on before kickoff at 10:00 a.m. PST.

One thing we have not yet touched on is one of my favorite things about football Sunday: prop bets. And let me tell you, there are five prop bets to absolutely hammer in this game.

LA Chargers vs. Washington Football Team: 3 prop bets to hammer

Before we jump into it, all bets and odds are courtesy of our friends over at WynnBET.

1. Keenan Allen OVER 6.5 receptions (-130)

As Keenan Allen has been saying all offseason, he is always open. Seven receptions may seem like a scary number for some, especially with the other weapons in the LA Chargers offense.

However, Austin Ekeler has been dealing with a hamstring injury and while he is expected to play, it would not be surprising to see him in a limited role. Washington also has a really good linebackers unit and a great pass-rushing group.

Justin Herbert is going to be getting the ball out as quickly as possible and there is no one in the league that gets off the line and open like Keenan Allen does.

Allen averaged 7.1 receptions per game and that is including a four-reception game with Tyrod Taylor and two games last season where he started but got hurt and essentially did not play.

2. Keenan Allen OVER 59.5 receiving yards (-125)

If you are going to stay away from the receptions prop then hammer this one for two units instead. Terry McLaurin has a higher receiving yards line than Allen and as long as Allen plays the whole game he will undoubtedly reach 60 receiving yards.

I get that Washington has a good defense but he is lining up against Kendall Fuller. Are you going to bet on Kendall Fuller to stop Keenan Allen? I wouldn't.

3. Justin Herbert to finish with 240-300 passing yards (+160)

WynnBET has passing ranges as original bets that the book is offering and this feels like free money. While there is a chance that Herbert goes off and throws for over 300, there are a few things to consider.

This is the first game of a new offense for Herbert against one of the toughest defenses in the NFL. It is also the first game where Herbert has to play against a full road crowd.

While he is not going to be bad, I doubt we see the monster 300-yard game out of Herbert in this one as the Chargers won't need that. It would be even more shocking if he finished under 240 yards as well.

Expect Herbert to throw for around 275 yards in this one and with plus odds, this is a can't miss prop.
