Monday Night Football doesn’t look like the most exciting matchup on paper, featuring a struggling Seattle Seahawks team and the Washington Football Team, but that’s nothing a bet can’t fix.
If you’re unsure of a side or total, betting on individual players could be the way to go.
The betting market suggests a tight matchup with Seattle listed as a 1-point favorite as of Monday morning. That’s down from the opening number of 2.5. The total has held steady at 46.5.
When it comes to the prop betting market, BetMGM data shows bettors are targeting three players on Monday.
On Seattle’s side of the ball, wide receiver DK Metcalf scoring the first touchdown in the game is the most popular play of the night. That comes with +750 odds (bet $100, profit $750).
Metcalf has eight touchdowns on the year, but hasn’t scored since Halloween when he found the end zone twice against the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, it was Geno Smith who found the end zone first in that game.
Metcalf has scored first in three contests this season for the 3-7 Seahawks.
The two other most popular plays at BetMGM are both on Washington skill players.
Antonio Gibson to score a touchdown at any time is +110, but he’s only scored in four games this season. He didn’t score on 19 touches last week against the Panthers but found pay dirt twice on 26 touches two weeks ago in Washington’s win over Tampa Bay.
Finally, bettors are parlaying a Terry McLaurin touchdown with a Washington outright win for a price of +225. McLaurin has scored a touchdown in four games this year, including last week against the Panthers.
As for the game, BetMGM is reporting 66% of bets are on Seattle with 53% of bets on the under. However, 67% of the dollars are on the over.
