New Orleans Saints vs Seattle Seahawks: 3 Best 'Monday Night Football' Prop Bets

Week 7 of the NFL season wraps up tonight with the New Orleans Saints traveling to Seattle to take on the Seahawks on "Monday Night Football." The Saints enter tonight as a 4-point road favorite as they look to hand an injured Seahawks team their third consecutive loss.

It's Monday, so that means we are back with the three best props of the night from three of the major sportsbooks in the country as well as the best bet of the night via Bovada. The only thing you need to do is responsibly place your bets tonight and rake in the cash.

Let's pick out some winners.

FanDuel: Jameis Winston, OVER 1.5 Touchdown Passes (+132)

The Jameis Winston experience in New Orleans has gone as expected. It has been an incredibly up-and-down season so far, but the ups are really promising. With Seattle owning one of the worst defenses against the pass in the NFL, the conditions are just right for an all-time Jameis Winston performance, especially on primetime.

In the Saints' three wins this season, Winston has thrown for 11 touchdowns and only one interception. In the two losses, Winston only has one touchdown to two interceptions. Basically, the Saints only win when Winston is on his game, and Seattle has a horrible defense that plays very well for us tonight. On the season, the Seahawks' defense is ranked 23rd in yards per pass (7.5), 27th in passing yards per game (292.3), and dead-last in total yards per game (433.2).

Seattle has only allowed two touchdown passes over the last two games, but one was against Pittsburgh and the other was against a Rams team that totaled 476 yards. If the Saints can gain 476 yards, Winston will have at least two touchdown passes.

Barstool: D.K. Metcalf, OVER 4.5 Receptions (-134)

D.K. Metcalf's production has gone down over the past few weeks and it should be expected with Russell Wilson out for quite a while. However, even though his snap count and targets are going down, he is still producing at a high level. Metcalf has only gone under this number twice this season and both times, the number of receptions he had was four.

Even with Wilson out, Geno Smith has already taken a liking to Metcalf. when Smith came in for an injured Wilson against the Rams, he targeted Metcalf three times and they hooked up for two completions for 40 yards. Against the Steelers, Metcalf caught six passes for 58 yards on seven targets. While the Saints' defensive numbers look pretty, their numbers against the pass are just as concerning as Seattle's numbers.

The Saints are ranked 32nd in opponents' pass attempts per game (41), 24th in passing yards allowed per game (275), and 31st in sack percentage (3.76%). The Seahawks are going to have to pass to win tonight and that means the Metcalf should have a big day.

DraftKings: Marquez Callaway Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+170)

The DrafKings touchdown scorer of the night belongs to Marquez Callaway because of his increased production over the past few weeks. In last week's victory over the Football Team, Callaway hauled in two touchdowns on eight targets. In the Saints' three wins this season, Callway has caught a touchdown in two of them and outside of week 1, Callway sees more action when the Saints win.

The Saints should have no problem passing the ball on a poor defense against the pass. Callaway should see a lot of action and find himself in the endzone.

Bovada: Best Bet: Saints -4

This line may be a touch too high, but Sean Payton and the Saints have been a very valuable team to bet on in October. Since 2005, Payton has a 37-18-1 record ATS in the month of October. The Saints are also 11-4-1 ATS in their last 15 games overall and have covered in the last three matchups with Seattle.

The Seahawks' defense is just too horrible as it is and with their starting quarterback still sidelined, the Saints should win this one by at least a touchdown. Both offenses will play fairly conservatively, but the Saints have a better chance at having some explosive plays, so we will back New Orleans tonight.
