Greetings fellow prop market investors and happy Week Three. Hopefully, you avoided some of the craters left in the gambling landscape as the Jags & Vikings lost outright as double-digit home favorites and the Patriots and Lions pissed into the wrong fountain change places for the night. I myself avoided all but the aforementioned Patriots performance that will undoubtedly be the catalyst to the dynasty is over talk…and we all know how that ended up the last time.
This MNF matchup brings together the most unlikely of storylines. On one hand, Tampa Bay is actually going to have to decide if FitzMagic is really the answer long-term(or at least for this season) meanwhile the Steelers are in complete disarray as one of the 4 remaining WINLESS, that’s right winless teams. For now, let’s dive into the matchup and identify inefficiencies in the prop market to get you paid on Monday Night Football. For More in-depth analysis listen to the Week 3 Picks Podcast below.

Monday Night Football Prop Bets – Five Ways to Get Paid
1. Ryan Fitzpatrick Over 273.5 Passing Yards (-115)
He is LITERALLY averaging over 400yds per game(one of those games vs the Eagles) with no semblance of a run game. Now Fitzy gets the 21st ranked pass def, don’t over think it and enjoy the FitzMagic.
2. DeSean Jackson Over 55.5 Receiving Yards (-110) & 3. DeSean Jackson to score TD (+195)
This one is tightly correlated to Prop #1. These guys are in sync, Jackson is openly supporting Fitzy in the media and holy hell he is letting him borrow his sweet sweet Michael Jackson replica clothes(chain included). Oh and this could hit with one catch as it has in both of his previous games with catches of 58 & 75 yards going for TDs.
4. James Conner Over 30.5 Receiving Yards (-110)
James Connor AKA the other James Connor AKA PITT folk hero AKA the terminator has gone 5-48 & 5-57 in the passing game this year. Seem simple enough but then sprinkle in the Bucs defense who has given up 16 catches on 21 targets for 173 yards. In what surely…famous last words…should be a shootout with a total of 55 I expect much of the same for an easy over here.
5. Ben Roethlisberger to throw INT (-200)
Death, Taxes and Big Ben throws a pick on the road.
Good luck and Let it Ride!!!
