The beauty of Monday Night Football is even though Jameis Winston and Geno Smith are the starting quarterbacks, bettors will still watch and find a way to invest in the game.

Investing in Smith and Winston? Not always fun. That’s why bettors are headed a different direction between the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks.

Saints running back Alvin Kamara and Seahawks receiver DK Metcalf are receiving the most betting action on player props, according to data released on Monday by BetMGM.

Kamara to score the first touchdown of the game is most popular at +375 (bet $100, profit $375). The bonus of betting Kamara — and partially why his price is this short — is because he offers the threat of rushing or catching a score. He has four touchdowns on the year, three through the air.

Kamara has scored the first touchdown of the game twice in five games so far.

On Seattle’s side, bettors are hoping Smith looks Metcalf’s way all game, specifically near the end zone. The second- and third-most bet prop of the game involves Metcalf scoring.

Metcalf scoring a touchdown anytime is +130 and to score at least two touchdowns is +650.

Metcalf has been a touchdown machine this year, catching five in six games this year. He was held out of the end zone last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers with Smith under center but caught six of seven targets. He caught two touchdowns in a game once this year in a 26-17 loss to the Rams.

In Smith’s first start this year, he completed 23-of-32 passes for 209 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions.

Early bets at BetMGM were on the road favorite with the Saints catching 64% of all tickets. New Orleans is a 4-point favorite with a total of 41.5, down from the opening number of 43.5. For real-time odds, click here.
