The Saints and Seahawks may not have Drew Brees and Russell Wilson taking the field on Monday night, but this should still be an exciting game between two teams attempting to play their way into the playoff picture in the NFC. As always, there are some great player props available, providing excellent value to your betting card. With so many prop bets to choose from, these are the bets I have my eye on in this game.
New Orleans Saints Vs. Seattle Seahawks Player Prop Search Tool
Geno Smith Under 204.5 Passing Yards
I want to believe in Geno Smith, but I can’t get behind the Seahawks’ backup in this game. The Saints’ defense appears to be underperforming on the surface as they’ve allowed 275 passing yards per game, the tenth-most in the NFL. However, they still have some elite secondary pieces in Marshon Lattimore, Marcus Williams, and Malcolm Jenkins. The primary reason their defense hasn’t performed is an underwhelming pass rush, but the Seahawks have allowed the fourth-highest adjusted sack rate in the NFL per Football Outsiders, so that may not end up mattering much. The Seahawks will likely attempt to slow the pace down in this game, and I don’t see Smith replicating his same success last week.

Alvin Kamara Over 95.5 Rushing Yards
Last week, I wrote about how I expected Najee Harris to overwhelm a struggling Seattle run defense, and he finished with 81 yards on 24 carries, not precisely the elite stat line I expected. However, the Seahawks still rank middle-of-the-pack in run defense DVOA and allowed 4.4 yards per carry this season, the tenth-most in the NFL. Kamara has only passed this line once all season, which should give you some pause. However, he will be the centerpiece of the Saints’ offense on Monday, with their skill position players continuing to be limited. With Geno Smith not presenting much of a challenge on the other side of the field, the Saints should lean on their run game and defense, providing a favorable game script for Kamara.
Marquez Callaway Under 41.5 Receiving Yards
It’s been an up-and-down season for everyone’s favorite late-round sleeper at wide receiver as he’s gone over 70 yards twice and under 20 yards twice out of a five-game sample size. He only started to break out over the past couple of weeks once Tre’Quan Smith was placed on short-term Injured Reserve, and it sounds like Smith could return this week. Even if he doesn’t, the Seahawks are good at limiting big plays and allow an explosive pass on just 18 of 244 snaps, a 7% rate and the eighth-lowest in the NFL. With a lower points total and a tougher defensive matchup, look for Callaway to be held in check.
Tyler Lockett Longest Reception Over 19.5 Yards
It’s very clear that Tyler Lockett’s fantasy upside is going to be limited with Geno Smith at quarterback, but that doesn’t mean he can’t generate some big plays in this matchup. The Saints’ limited pass rush has left them susceptible on the back end at times and Lockett will likely be facing lighter coverage from rookie Paulson Adebo or slot corner Chauncey Gardner-Johnson while DK Metcalf is shadowed by Marshon Lattimore on the outside. This line has been reduced since Smith took over as the starter, and rightfully so, but Lockett is still very good at generating yards after the catch and has receptions of 20+ yards in each of the past two weeks.
