Eagles vs Buccaneers MNF props

Prop bet #1: Tight end feast

The tight end position has absolutely feasted against the Philadelphia Eagles secondary this season. In Week 1, Hunter Henry and Mike Gesicki combined for nine targets and eight receptions, with T.J. Hockenson having seven catches on eight targets in Week 2. 

Cade Otton has a good stranglehold on the tight end position for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He saw three targets and two receptions in Week 1 and followed that up with six receptions on six targets last week. The only other TE to see targets was David Wells with two catches on two targets. 

Otton showed last week that he can be a solid target for Mayfield. With the Eagles allowing 8.5 targets to tight ends per game, I would expect at least six to seven targets for Otton in this matchup.

Cade Otton prop: Over 3.5 receptions

Prop bet #2: All talk

After a sideline spat last Thursday between Jalen Hurts and wide receiver A.J. Brown, there has been a lot of talk in the media the two may not get along and Brown may be unhappy with his target share. However, according to those two, it is just that — all talk.

In Week 1, Brown had 10 targets that resulted in seven catches for 79 yards. Even last week, Brown still saw six targets, which led all wide receivers for the Eagles in the game. I wouldn't be surprised if Hurts made it a priority to get Brown the ball on Monday night.

Justin Jefferson had nine catches on 12 targets against the Bucs in Week 1, while D.J. Moore had six catches on seven targets last week against Tampa. They are susceptible to allowing number-one receivers to be target hogs. I expect we see this with Brown on Monday night.

A.J. Brown prop: Over 5.5 receptions

Prop bet #3: No room for Rachaad

Not only are the Eagles fantastic at running the ball, they excel at stopping the run. Philadelphia leads the league in rushing yards allowed at just 52.0 yards per game and has yet to give up a touchdown. They also rank second in rush attempts allowed at 15.5 per contest. 

In Week 1, they held Rhamondre Stevenson to 25 yards on 12 carries and Ezekiel Elliott had 29 yards on seven carries. Last Thursday, Alexander Mattison had 28 yards on eight attempts. Whether it is a lack of attempts due to the score, or a lack of running room in general, it is hard to even break into the 30-yard mark on the ground for one player against the Eagles.

Rachaad White will get a majority of the carries for the Bucs, but that doesn't guarantee much. In games where they held the lead for most of the game, he had 17 carries in each of the past two games. However, he only averaged 3.3 yards per attempt and will likely get less work at either a similar or worse average yardage. 

Rachaad White prop: Under 50.5 rushing yards
