After a successful Week 2, it’s time to cap off the week with a little Monday Night Football. With a great game upcoming between the Colts and Eagles, this game should have plenty of NFL Odds value in the props from Bet365. 

Zach Ertz O/U 44.5 receiving yards
Going on the road, the Eagles are going to have to rely on their stellar offense even more. With the Colts being very good on offense as well, this game has shootout written all over it. That being said, it should be a good play to target the receivers in this game, especially Zach Ertz, who has an O/U of only 44.5 yards tonight. Last week he only had three receptions, but he got 77 yards and a touchdown with those three catches, and with his big play ability, I could see Ertz going over this total. The Colts’ secondary is pretty good, but they will be preoccupied trying to slow down Jeremy Maclin and even Darren Sproles. Ertz should have more targets than last week, and only one big play could cash this prop for NFL Bettors.

My Pick: OVER 44.5 receiving yards

 

Race to 20 points
The NFL Odds value from Bet365 is great for this prop as well, and with the Eagles as solid underdogs in a lot of the odds, they are being undervalued in some very even props. It is going to be a coin flip for who gets to 10, 20, 30 points tonight, and there is a lot of value with the Eagles to win the race to the points. If the Eagles get to 20 points first, the NFL Odds from Bet365 will cash at +125. The Colts’ defense is very beatable, and with the Eagles solid running game and hurry up offense, it’s going to be very hard for the Colts to slow down Philadelphia. Indianapolis is one dimensional in their offense, and even though Philly’s defense is pretty bad, the Colts’ lack of a run game could hurt their offensive efficiency in this game. Look for the Eagles to score early, and get to 20 points before the home team.

My Pick: Eagles (+125)

 

Eagles O/U 24.5 points
For my final prop of the evening, I’m going with the Eagles’ and their team points total from Bet365. At only 24.5 points, the over looks like a nice play tonight. With the shaky Indy defense, the Eagles should be able to score well in this game, and while the Colts’ team total from Bet365 is kind of high, the Eagles’ total is somewhat low. Three touchdowns and two field goals will be enough to cash the over in this prop, and that is shooting very low when it comes to this offense. While I expect the Colts’ secondary to play well, they will give up some yards to LeSean McCoy. With a total of nearly 55 points in the NFL Odds, you know that scoring is going to be plentiful here, and it would not surprise me at all to see both teams in the 30s. Take the over for your NFL picks.

My Pick: OVER 24.5 (-120)
