Monday Night Football takes us to Mexico City for a divisional matchup between the 49ers and Cardinals.

Using the Action Labs Player Props tool, I've found an edge on DeAndre Hopkins. Sean Koerner already made his pick for tonight, fading Deebo Samuel. I'm using Koerner's numbers to back the opposite No. 1 receiver.

DeAndre Hopkins
Over 6.5 Receptions (+102)

Last week was the first time that Colt McCoy and DeAndre Hopkins both started for the Cardinals. Even though McCoy started Weeks 9-11 last season, Hopkins missed all those games.

So, what we have to go off between the two is last week, when they combined early and often in a win over the Rams.

To say Hopkins has been the Cardinals’ go-to guy since returning would be a massive understatement. He’s taken on all of Marquise “Hollywood” Brown’s volume in this offense and added some more.

Hopkins is averaging nine catches on 11.5 targets and 99 yards per game since debuting in Week 7. Last week, with McCoy under center, he had 10 grabs on 14 targets for 98 yards.

Monday Night Football sets up for another busy night for Hopkins. Brown is still out, and the Cardinals lost tight end Zach Ertz for the season last week in Los Angeles.

The 49ers defense is obviously elite, but it ranks 15th in Football Outsiders’ DVOA metric against opposing No. 1 receivers this season. That’s nothing that can shut Hopkins down, even with McCoy under center.

Hopkins’ receptionstotal is 6.5 against the 49ers in Mexico City, and the over has a plus number attached to it across the board.

Action Labs is projecting him for 7.4 catches, creating a huge edge on betting him.
