Like an Italian grandmother, the NFL is giving us a 2nd serving of Monday Night Football this night sooner than we are even completed with our preliminary plate. Seventy-five mins after the Titans and Bills kick off on ESPN, the Vikings and Eagles will start fight on ABC. Here are 3 participant props from BetMGM which can be hitting my eye like a large pizza pie this night:
Mattison averaged 4.3 carries in line with sport final season when Dalvin Cook was once lively. Fast-forward previous Mike Zimmer getting the awl and foolish offseason hypothesis that any individual instead of Mattison might be Minnesota’s RB2, all the option to the first sport of 2022, the place Mattison treated 8 carries for 36 yards as Cook’s transparent backup in Kevin O’Connell’s new offense. It’s simply a one-game pattern measurement, however giving Mattison a few extra totes in line with contest would be a smart decision to lend a hand mitigate Cook’s increased possibility of re-injuring his shoulder.
Philadelphia’s protection ranked final in tackling in Week 1 as they surrendered 181 speeding yards to the Lions. Mattison has hit this prop in every of his 24 profession video games the place he recorded no less than 5 carries.
Treylon Burks over 26.5 receiving yards (-115)
The NFL participant Burks was once in comparison to the maximum right through the 2022 draft season was once A.J. Brown. Tennessee will have to have agreed, as they traded Brown to Philly and decided on Burks to switch him. The rookie receiver out of Arkansas spent a lot of coaching camp coping with bronchial asthma, however he is carried out smartly in video games for a Titans offense that would use a breath of unpolluted air. Burks had a 15.2% goal proportion in Tennessee’s season opener, catching 3 of his 5 goals for 55 yards. His YAC skill may money this prop on a unmarried toss from Ryan Tannehill and shall we additionally see some rubbish time manufacturing in a matchup the place the Titans are 10-point underdogs.
Derrick Henry underneath 87.5 speeding yards (-110)
At some level, Henry goes to fall off a cliff à l. a. Wile E. Coyote. Maybe it is dumb to guess in opposition to him, however he has just about 1,000 touches since 2019 and has seemed a color slower in the two video games he is performed after breaking a bone in his foot final 12 months. Much of Henry’s brilliance as a runner has been that he batters defenses for 3 quarters, then rips off lengthy runs in the ultimate body when he is sapped their power like a 247-pound vampire. In Buffalo’s Week 1 win over the Rams, linebacker Matt Milano was once the most effective entrance seven participant for the Bills who logged greater than 69% of snaps. That choice to rotate defenders helped Buffalo dominate up entrance all the way through the night time, sacking Matthew Stafford seven instances and protecting the Rams to 52 speeding yards.
