The last two teams of the week to kick it off on Monday Night Football betting action this week are the Washington Redskins and the New York Giants. Check out some of the NFL prop bets that are available at BetDSI, as we analyze the betting lines and see which sides to play.
Longest Touchdown of the Game Over 48.5 Yards (-115): The Redskins and Giants have hit big show after big shot this year into the end zone, and they are definitely both capable of scoring from midfield. WR Victor Cruz scored from 77 yards away when these two teams met the first time around, and that took a game that could have been a win for the Redskins on the road to a triumph for the Giants that might have saved their season. There is no doubt that the explosiveness is there – and we haven’t even talked about the possibility of defensive or special teams touchdowns. One of these two teams should pick up a very long touchdown in this one more often than not.
Eli Manning Over 290.5 Passing Yards (-125): It’s tough to bet on Eli to exceed 290 passing yards in this game, but we think that it is a slam dunk to happen as long as the Redskins keep this game close. Manning threw for three TDs last week, and he had a chance to get one or two more against the Green Bay Packers. If Eli can tear up the Pack, he can certainly blow up a defense that allowed at least 299 passing yards in each of its first seven games this year. The receivers are all healthy for the G-Men, and Manning threw for 337 yards in the first clash of the year of these two teams. Granted, as we said before, 77 of those yards came in the final salvo of the game, but that doesn’t take away from what it is. We really don’t care how Manning gets near that 300+ passing yard number, just whether he actually does or not.
Victor Cruz To Score a Touchdown (+105): The Washington secondary has allowed 22 passing touchdowns this year, and the team is clearly in a lot of trouble in the back, especially now that DB Brandon Meriweather is out for the rest of the year. Cruz has found the end zone in six of his 11 games this year, and in the games in which he has been banged up, he wasn’t able to score. There is no way that we won’t see some salsa dancing when push comes to shove in this one at least half the time, and we think that the percentages are actually a heck of a lot higher than that.
Robert Griffin III Total Completions Under 20 (-110): Griffin III completed 20 passes when these two teams met the first time in Week 7. The argument could be made that the former Heisman Trophy winner has learned a heck of a lot more over the course of the last few games, but the argument could also be made that he has a book out on him now. He threw for four TDs in each of the last two games, but we think that the New York defense is going to keep him under wraps, at least in terms of the passing game. This secondary has only ultimately allowed 215.0 passing yards per game over the course of the last three games, and it’s going to take more than that for RG3 to get to 21 completions, something that he has only done three times all year long.
