Week 8 of the NFL season gets a lid on when the New York Giants travel to face the Kansas City Chiefs in a Monday Night Football matchup. In this article, I will identify the three most profitable Monday Night Football picks for prop bets.
The Chiefs are heavy 10.5-point favorites with the total sitting around 52 points at most sportsbooks. It has been hard to pinpoint exactly how Kansas City will perform each week, especially after we saw it have a meltdown in Tennessee in Week 7. The Giants are coming off a big win, so this will be an intriguing matchup to see which side stays in their ways.
Over 52 Points, -110
Tonight’s game should be a lot of fun as the Giants could be returning some of their better skill players. QB Daniel Jones has been making some plays with his legs, and that could keep New York competitive in this one. The Chiefs, on the other hand, are looking for some redemption after only putting up three points in Tennessee last week. QB Patrick Mahomes has some of the best weapons in WR Tyreek Hill and TE Travis Kelce in great individual matchups, setting the stage for some big numbers tonight.
Best Odds – (-110) at Unibet
Travis Kelce – Over 79.5 Receiving Yards
The Giants have always struggled when defending tight ends, so trying to stop the best one in the league should be quite the dubious task. New York hasn’t seen too many talented tight ends this season, thus making their season-long numbers look better than they actually are. Kelce has a prop number of 6.5 receptions tonight with heavy -135 juice attached to it. Seeing this number gives me optimism that Kelce will have yet another big night of production.
Best Odds – (-115) at Caesars Sportsbook
Darrell Williams 1st Chiefs TD Scorer + Sterling Shepard 1st Giants TD Scorer
This is a bonus special from Caesars Sportsbook, and it’s always good to look out for some of these big-hitter NFL picks. If this particular one hits, a $10 bet will return $330! Of course, a huge bet like this doesn’t come without risk, so we’re looking for Williams and Shepard to score the first touchdown for their respective teams. Williams will likely need a few snaps from the 1- or 2-yard line in order to pay off on this bet while Shepard is one of the only Giants scoring touchdowns these days.
