5 prop bets for Monday Night Football: It’s National Tight End week in the NFL

Hello, George Kittle. Plus, we still like Christian McCaffrey to score, despite his injury

After two straight rough weeks, our record has dipped under .500 at 11-12 on the season. Christian McCaffrey scored for the 15th consecutive game, but P.J. Walker went over his passing props, and Deebo Samuel was injured just two rushing yards shy of hitting the over on his rushing yards prop. It’s time to bounce back and get on the winning side with Monday Night Football against the Minnesota Vikings.

Let’s take a look at some prop bets to target, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook:

In the spirit of national tight ends day, DraftKings is offering an odds boost of +100 for George Kittle and T.J. Hockenson to combine for 80+ receiving yards. The maximum bet is 25 dollars, but it turns into 50 with these odds. I’m in.

As for the game and props, McCaffrey is listed as questionable, but there is optimism he will suit up on Monday night. The anytime TD prop is free money when he plays, and the odds sit at -185. Combined with a 49ers victory moves the odds to -115. Yes, and yes.

Primetime is when Kittle shines the brightest. With Samuel missing the game, Kittle’s receiving prop sits at 48.5. After a one-catch performance last Sunday, this is an easy one. Let’s take the over, and Kittle will continue the tight end dominance from this weekend in the NFL.

Speaking of shining in primetime, Kirk Cousins does not. Let’s take the over on his interception prop of 0.5 at -125. The 49ers defense has turned offenses over a ton so far this season, we expect that to continue.

Our same game parlay consists of a McCaffrey anytime TD, the 49ers win, Kittle over 48.5 receiving yards, and Cousins over 0.5 interceptions thrown. Those odds sit at +425, and 25 dollars turns into 131.25.

Good luck tonight!
