Giants vs. Buccaneers Monday Night Football Props to Make

Monday Night Football between the New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers is not expected to be a tight game. Tampa Bay enters as an 11-point favorite against a Giants team that hasn’t shown it can hang with the best of the best in the NFL this season.

And while the outcome of the game might not be in any real doubt, there are some player props that are worth taking a look at that could be of more interest in this contest.

Daniel Jones Anytime TD Scorer (+330)

How the New York Giants will put up enough points to keep up with the Buccaneers is a mystery to many, as the Giants are facing an above-average defense with a ton of injuries to worry about on their offense. But Daniel Jones should be able to find the end zone in this game with his legs, making him worth a look to score a touchdown at better than 3/1 odds.

Jones has two rushing touchdowns already this season and has had runs of 20 yards and 46 yards already this season. In a game where his pocket could break down pretty regularly, Jones’ escapability could lead to big plays on the perimeter or just a goal-line scramble to get him the touchdown he needs to cash this prop.

Tom Brady Under 299.5 (-115)

Tom Brady is lighting it up for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this season, pacing for over 5,000 yards and close to 50 touchdowns on the season. But his passing yardage total is too high for this game, as he should end up with under 300 yards for this game. Brady has had just one 300 yard game in his last four games, and that was a game where the Buccaneers had to try and chase down the Saints in a losing effort.

In this game, the Buccaneers should be able to lean on their running game against a Giants defense that ranks in the bottom-10 in yards per carry allowed. With the Buccaneers expected to lead for most of the game, Brady won’t have to put the ball in the air an excessive amount of times. With the game script and the outcome favoring the under here, it is worth going against public perception with this Tom Brady under.

Leonard Fournette Longest Rush Over 13.5 Yards (-130)

Leonard Fournette hasn’t had a spectacular season for the Buccaneers, as he has under 500 rushing yards and four touchdowns heading into this game. But Fournette does still have the ability to break off some explosive runs that set the Bucs up in favorable field positions. Here, the over on his longest run prop of 13.5 is worth taking, even at a juiced-up -130.

Fournette has gone over that number with his longest run in four of the nine games he has played in so far this season. Those four games where he has hit the over have all come within Tampa Bay’s last four outings, in a stretch where Fournette’s longest run also reached 13 yards in another game. Against a Giants team that will be focused on slowing down Tom Brady, the Buccaneers’ running back should be able to break at least one run of a decent length.
