I busted back onto the scene on Sunday, cashing both of my team prop picks. We have been crushing our NFL team props this season so far and I am back to try and cap off the week with a few more winners.

 Score In The First 6:30

I usually don’t touch props like this because they are pretty unpredictable, but here on Monday Night Football where both of these teams have had an extra day of rest, the defenses might come out swinging in this one.

We have already established the Vikings may own the best defense in football. At home in their first national TV game in their new stadium, the Vikings are going to be bringing the heat on Eli Manning in this one, hoping to force him into a mistake.

While I don’t think this game will be low scoring, I do think both teams will feel one another out a little bit at the beginning of the game. The Giants’ defense is pretty good as well, so we could be looking at a stalemate early on in this one.

That could lead to several plays, including the first half under, but a better play might be a prop on if there will be a score in the first six minutes and 30 seconds of this one.

Last week was the first time the Giants have scored in the first quarter all season and also the first time they scored early in the first quarter. However, that was against a spotty Redskins defense. The Vikings are by far the best defense the Giants have faced this season and considering the Minnesota defense has given up an average of only four first quarter points per game this season, I see them holding down the Giants at the beginning of the game.

O/U 4.5 Touchdowns

So far through three weeks of the season, the Vikings have given up only five touchdowns and one of them was in garbage time with 30 seconds to go in a meaningless score.

The Giants, on the other hand, have only played in one game where there were more than four touchdowns put up by either team and with the Giants’ defense playing some underrated football right now, I see this one falling under on Monday night.

Last week the Giants and Redskins got into a shootout, but before that they played in two very low scoring games. There were only four touchdowns scored between the Giants and Cowboys in Week 1, followed by only two touchdowns in the Saints game.

Needless to say, if the Giants’ defense can slow down those three offenses, they should have no problem limiting Sam Bradford and company to only one or two touchdowns in this one. Take the under for you Monday night football prop picks.
