Monday Night Football Prop Bets
1. Russell Wilson Over 17.5 Rushing Yards (-115) & 2. Under .5 INTs (-130)
Russell Wilson owns Monday Night Football. In a matchup that features the #4 adjusted sack rate in the Vikings, I expect there to be running lanes for Wilson to convert a couple 1st downs. At this low total, he could need as few as 2-3 carries to get over the total. As far as the interceptions, he just doesn’t throw picks at home, totaling a whopping 1 all year at home.
3. Kirk Cousins Over .5 INTs (-140)
Death, Taxes, and Cousins throws a pick in primetime!
4. Nick Vannett Over 17.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
The Vikings have struggled against the TE giving up 52 yards per game to the TE position. Wilson loves finding his TEs for those game-changing plays, look for Vannett to catch 3+ balls and easily get over this total.
5. Dalvin Cook Over 26.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
The word out of Minnesota is that Cook needs to touch the ball more. Well, what better medicine for a QB who struggles under the lights than a friendly check down receivers. Enjoy this one as I predict it hits in the 1st half.
Good luck and Let it Ride!!!
