  • We've identified two of the best prop bets for Monday Night Football between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants.

NFL player prop bets can offer some of the best betting value on the board in any given week. They typically feature smaller limits and take less action than traditional game bets, so the market can often be less efficient than NFL sides and totals.

This is where the FantasyLabs Player Props tool comes in handy.

We leverage prop bets against our player projections from Sean Koerner, the No. 1 in-season fantasy football ranker in three of the past four seasons.

Each prop bet then receives a Bet Quality grade between 1 and 10, with 10 being the biggest edge.

Note that unders have typically done the best in our tool. Last season unders were profitable even with grades below 10, with all hitting at a 59.0% rate. Don’t take our word for it, though: Our tool keeps track of its record at all times, so you can query performance of any time frame.

Cowboys vs. Giants Prop Bets

Now let’s take a look at two props worth considering for the Monday Night Football contest between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants.

Cowboys WR Randall Cobb

THE PICK: Under 3.0 Receptions (+110)

Over the past six weeks, Cobb is fourth on the team in target share (15%) and is averaging a paltry 4.8 targets and 2.5 receptions per game over that time frame.

Additionally, over his last four games, he’s caught just two, three, three and two passes. Given that Cobb is arguably the fourth or fifth option on this offense behind Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, Ezekiel Elliott and Jason Witten, I’ll take a shot at the under.

Even though it has a good chance to push since the current line is sitting at 3.0, I’ll gladly take the plus-money odds. I’d bet this to +100.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott

THE PICK: Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-150)

Normally I hate betting overs, but this one has my attention.

Dak has thrown for more than 1.5 touchdowns in four of his seven games this season, but he’s done it just once in his last four outings, suggesting progression should be headed his way. He carved up this leaky defense for 405 passing yards and four touchdowns back in Week 1, and with our props tool showing 1.9 passing touchdowns for him, it has a slight lean on the over.

Where this prop can fail is if Dak runs some touchdowns in, or if Zeke piles on the rushing touchdowns. But with the Cowboys boasting an implied team total of 27.75 points, Dak should have plenty of opportunities to toss two scores.

I wouldn’t bet this any worse than the -150 odds being offered.
