Each of the last two Monday night games have been three-touchdown affairs. But prior to that, we saw the Steelers win by two points while the Chiefs, Saints, and Titans all win by three prior to that. Fingers crossed for another great game and some great individual performances that help us win our NFL player props.

The Prop: Taylor Heinicke Passing Yards

The Odds: Over 224.5 yards (-115)/Under 224.5 yards (-115)

The more Taylor Heinicke plays, the more he looks like a good starting quarterback capable of making some really great plays. His yardage totals have been a little uneven, but against good competition like the Buccaneers, Broncos, and Packers, he went over 250 yards in each of those three games.

Seattle’s problems begin and end with their terrible defense. They’ve given up huge passing days to Colt McCoy, Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, Kirk Cousins, and Ryan Tannehill. True, Heinicke isn’t in a league with most of those players, but he’s proven to be better than Cardinals backup Colt McCoy.

We’re not going to predict that he betters McCoy’s 328 passing yards, but he should go over 225.

Antonio Gibson Vs. Seattle Seahawks

The Prop: Antonio Gibson Rushing Yards

The Odds: Over 63.5 yards (-112)/Under 63.5 yards (-118)

Each week as Antonio Gibson gets further away from the shin injury that slowed him down at the beginning of the season, it’s noticeable. He looks more comfortable now than he did a month ago, and he’s playing his best football of the season, coming off a 95-yard performance against a very good Panthers defense.

To be fair, the Seahawks’ real liability on defense is through the air. But their rushing defense is no great prize, ranking 23rd in the NFL by allowing 122.2 yards per game. They’ve also given up big days on the ground to Darrell Henderson, Trey Sermon, Alexander Mattison, and Derrick Henry.

Gibson went for 64 two weeks ago, 95 last week, and the solid numbers from him will continue this week against Seattle.

DK Metcalf Vs. Washington Football Team

The Prop: DK Metcalf Receiver Yards

The Odds: Over 69.5 yards (-118)/Under 69.5 yards (-114)

The Seahawks’ offense has been stuck in neutral since Russell Wilson returned from his finger injury. They were shut out by the Packers two weeks ago and managed just 13 points against the Cardinals. And that has seen everyone’s offensive production take a hit.

Wide receiver DK Metcalf received eight targets in each of the last two games, but he had just seven total catches for 57 total yards. It’s his worst two-game stretch of this season and worst since a two-game stretch as a rookie in 2019 when he had just 50 total yards.

The Washington defense has been a disappointment this year, but they have done a good job of putting the clamps on No. 1 wide receivers recently. D.J. Moore had just 50 yards, Mike Evans had 62, and Courtland Sutton finished with 40.

The Seattle offense is broken, and it doesn’t get fixed this week.
