Monday Night Football this week may not turn heads as a stellar matchup on paper, but it’s an incredibly important game for the Buccaneers after they lost both of their last two games. The Giants have played much better lately with wins over the Panthers and Raiders as well as a narrow loss to the Chiefs the last time they played on Monday night. There are plenty of interesting betting angles to break down for this game, and in this article, we’ll take a look at the best player props available.

New York Giants Vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Player Prop Search Tool
Daniel Jones Under 240.5 Passing Yards
The Buccaneers’ pass defense has started to improve after a horrendous start to the year and they’ve held their past four opponents to an average of 178.5 passing yards per game. Richard Sherman has joined Carlton Davis and Sean Murphy-Bunting on Injured Reserve, and it’s unclear if any will be able to play this week. However, Jamel Dean has been excellent and Ross Cockrell and Pierre Desir have stepped up recently. Daniel Jones has averaged just 228.8 passing yards per game over his last five outings and has only surpassed this number once over that stretch. New York’s receiver corps should be getting healthier this week, but I don’t have enough faith in this offensive line to keep Jones upright against a strong front seven.

Leonard Fournette Over 26.5 Receiving Yards
The Buccaneers have been missing Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski for several weeks and in their absence, Leonard Fournette has become an integral part of the passing offense. Over the past five weeks, Fournette is averaging 32 receiving yards per game and has gone over this mark in three of five games. Fournette now gets to face the Giants’ defense which has allowed 51.8 receiving yards per game to running backs, the eighth-most in the NFL. As an integral part of the passing offense and in a game where Tampa Bay should be able to move the ball quite easily, this is a great line to target for Fournette.
Evan Engram Under 35.5 Receiving Yards
The Giants are looking forward to getting Saquon Barkley, Kenny Golladay, and Kadarius Toney back this week, and while Sterling Shepard is not playing, Evan Engram is likely to be relegated to a lesser role in the offense. Even with some receiving talent injured, Engram has only averaged 32 yards per game. He’s frankly just not the player he was expected to be when the Giants drafted him in the first round in 2017 and we shouldn’t expect him to be an integral part of the offense with those key players back in the lineup. I’m already expecting this to be a lower volume game for Daniel Jones, and with Engram possibly the fourth-best receiving option, he’s due for a limited workload.
Chris Godwin Over 6.5 Receptions
With Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski still missing from the lineup, Chris Godwin has taken on an even more important role in the offense. I thought Godwin would be limited with a foot injury last week, but he had his normal workload and finished with seven receptions. We shouldn’t expect Godwin to be hampered by that moving forward. Godwin has finished with 7+ receptions in three straight weeks. The Giants’ perimeter cornerback duo of James Bradberry and Adoree’ Jackson has been excellent lately, but the team is very vulnerable in the slot, where Godwin lines up. Whether it’s been Darnay Holmes, Julian Love, or somebody else, teams have consistently beaten the Giants in the slot. Godwin should be able to hit this line with ease in what should be a get-right game for the Tampa offense.
