Monday Night Football will see the return of Russell Wilson to Seattle in his first game in another uniform.
It’s no surprise, then, to see him among the most popular player props for tonight’s contest. The two other trendy props involve his skill-position teammates: running back Javonte Williams and wide receiver Courtland Sutton.
The market as a whole is extremely bullish on the Broncos.
Despite hanging a -270 number on the moneyline, roughly 86% of the bets and 78% of the money is on Denver to win outright. And the Broncos’ spread at a market consensus of -6 has 78% of the bets and 60% of the total dollars.

*Odds and data are according to PointsBet as of Monday afternoon.
Our touchdown prop guru Gilles Gallant has some takes on each of these selections. You can read about his three best anytime TD selections for this Monday Night Football contest here. One of his picks vibes with the public’s most popular picks.
Javonte Williams Anytime TD
Although the Seahawks aren’t a complete train-wreck in stopping the run, Williams could be too talented to ignore. That being said, bettors should be worried about the Broncos’ resident TD poacher Melvin Gordon.
In 2021, the Broncos RBBC each had 203 carries AND 21 carries inside the 10-yard line, but Gordon scored eight times while Williams only had four.
Sportsbooks have them both at similar odds to score and, like the Broncos receivers, their lines are a true toss-up. Take whichever one has the highest value at your preferred sportsbook.
Russell Wilson Over 1.5 TD Passes
The “REVENGE GAME” narrative has taken hold across books, with bettors rooting for Wilson to “stick it” to his old team. That’s evidenced by the money splits, which as aforementioned heavily favor the Broncos.
Despite Wilson having his worst statistical passing season since 2016, he capped 2021 with seven passing touchdowns in his final two games as a Seahawk.
With another stable of young receivers and familiarity of the environment in Seattle, Wilson could be in for a big game. LET RUSS COOK!!
Courtland Sutton Anytime TD
I’m very bullish on Sutton to get into the end zone tonight but my opinion isn’t necessarily the consensus. Sportsbooks have varied odds between Sutton and teammate Jerry Jeudy regarding who is the likeliest to score.
Because Russell Wilson was out for preseason, it could be tricky to pick between the two. But, it may not matter considering how poor the Seahawks pass defense was last season (31st in passing yards allowed).
