Below you can find our picks for the Monday Night Football double header matchups!
Moneyline Pick: Philadelphia Eagles
In a duel between dark horse Super Bowl contenders, the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles will square off to see who will keep their undefeated record in tact. Both teams played exceptionally well last week and will look to carry that momentum into this big-time game.
While this one is sure to be a closely contested affair, we are giving the slight edge to the Eagles. In Week 1 the Eagles silenced their doubters showcasing their offensive ability to move the ball well both through the air and on the ground.
With tons of dynamic upside from the Eagles sideline, Philly is sure to make the lives of the Vikings defence difficult. The Vikes on the other-hand may have a tougher time finding the end zone against the eagles as their top of the line run D and blanket coverage secondary could send Kirk Cousins and company into a fit.
Back the hometown Eagles to capture their second straight win in this primetime battle between two of the top teams in the NFL.
Point Spread Pick: Buffalo Bills (-10)
In the NFL season opener the Buffalo Bills sent a message to the entire NFL establishing themselves as bonafide Super Bowl favourites. Going up against a Tennessee Titans team that fell to the New York Giants in Week 1, all indications are for a complete blowout in favour of the Bills in this Week 2 matchup.
The Bills demonstrated that their offensive firepower is on another level as they decimated one of the top defences in the NFL in Week 1. To say the Titans defence is poor would be an understatement, leaving the door open for the Bills to take a big lead early on into the fixture.
Offensively there’s also concerns surrounding the Titans as All-Pro running back Derrick Henry had one of his worst games in recent memory and quarterback Ryan Tannehill struggled to connect with his receivers consistently in Week 1.
Unless the Titans can pull a full 180 in this primetime affair, look for the Bills to cruise past the 10-point spread and win you some bread for Monday Night Football.
Over/Under Pick: Vikings VS Eagles Over 50.5 Total Points
There’s going to be punches in bunches in this matchup, as both teams aren’t afraid to show love to the deep ball. Both teams put up solid scoring numbers in their season openers and playing against top competition will only enhance their need to find the end zone.
With Pro Bowl talent on both sides look for both of these potential contenders to make the score steadily rise and break the 50-point mark in this matchup.
Best Player Prop Bets
Other than wagering on the outcome of the game, player prop bets are fun way to wager on any game. Here you can bet on player specific events occurring within a matchup.
Below you can find some of our best player prop bets that are sure to add some juice to your Monday Night Football betslips.
Gabe Davis Anytime Touchdown Scorer
After his phenomenal performance in the Playoffs last season, Gabe Davis continued his deep-threat play-style into the Bills Week 1 matchup scoring a 26-yard touchdown. Davis is looking like a perfect fit on the Bills offence as he allows Josh Allens cannon arm to exploit secondaries as they focus on All-Pro Stefon Diggs, while Davis finds seams for dangerous scoring chances.
Take Davis as an anytime touchdown scorer and watch for him to torch the Titans en route to a long distance score.
Justin Jefferson Over 98.5 Receiving Yards
One of the most unstoppable wideouts in the NFL, Justin Jefferson has continued to dominate against every team he faces. With seemingly no defensive back in the NFL capable of containing him, backing J-Jettah to reach over 98.5 receiving yards is a great wager to make.
The Vikings love the home run ball, look for the star receiver to have ample opportunities to rack up some big-time yardage against the Eagles.
