Best Player Props For Monday’s NFL Doubleheader: WFT-PIT, SF-BUF

  • NFL fans have some valuable prop bets available for Monday’s doubleheader, like Deebo Samuel to go over 56 receiving yards at -130 odds.
  • Other props include Antonio Gibson over 50 rushing yards (-130), Alex Smith to throw one interception (-125), James Washington to have two catches (-143), and more.

PITTSBURGH – The NFL has a post-work doubleheader set to go on Monday, with two terrific games on the schedule due to some COVID rescheduling.

The matchups are worthwhile, featuring the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers hosting the Washington Football team at 5:00 p.m. EST, and the San Francisco 49ers taking on the Buffalo Bills in primetime.

As always, the spread and moneyline can be found at the major online sportsbooks. However, there are some extremely valuable player props on the line for Monday’s games.

Out of the hundreds of offerings available, there are a few notable standouts available for NFL bettors.

Antonio Gibson (WFT) Over 50.0 Rushing YDs (-130)

The Washington Football Team has been given much credit for their defense as the saving grace of their team in 2020. However, Antonio Gibson has quietly emerged as a functional running back for the team which has no name.

Gibson has been playing above his means the last few weeks, and is quite responsible for the WFT winning back to back games. Gibson ran for 115 yards against the Dallas Cowboys, and 94 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals. He goes up against a Bills defense that allows the fifth most yards per carry in the NFL at 4.7

Raheem Mostert (SF) Over 1.5 Receptions (-167)

Raheem Mostert has always been an inconsistent option for the Niners, as any fantasy owner would tell you. However, through all of Mostert’s five games played this season he has caught at least two passes.

Mostert appears to be healthy now, and is primed to catch some more balls against a Buffalo defense that is susceptible to short passes, especially out of the backfield. Those who are willing to accept the juice on this bet will lock in a trend that hasn’t been broken this season.

Deebo Samuel (SF) Over 56.0 receiving yards (-130)

For those who haven’t had the pleasure of watching the San Francisco 49ers in 2020, Deebo Samuel has been one of the major bright spots for the defending NFC champions. Samuel returned from injury last week against the Los Angeles Rams and was basically the entire Niners’ offense.

Samuel dealt with injury this year and has only played four games after coming into the year at less than 100%. He left the Niners Week 7 game against the New England Patriots, and was brought back slowly against the Philadelphia Eagles, but has played over 80% of the snaps in games which he has appeared.

Samuel has 11 catches for 133 yards in that win over the Rams, with many of those coming out of the backfield or on short screen passes. Kyle Shanahan loves using Samuel as a short-distance receiver, giving him plenty of room to run after the catch. As long as Nick Mullens can deliver the ball to Samuel, he should have no problem putting up big numbers against this weak Bills front defense.

While this line has moved all over the place, it currently sits at -130 for 56 yards at Bovada’s NFL prop builder, which is more than enough to jump on the wager.

Alex Smith (WFT) Over 0.5 Total Interceptions Thrown (-125)

While the story of Alex Smith’s return has been nothing short of inspiring, NFL bettors can find great value on betting the veteran quarterback to make some key mistakes against this menacing Steelers’ defense. The Steelers are undefeated due to the prowess of their D, which is anchored by players like T.J. Watt, and Minkah Fitzpatrick.

With Watt causing havoc in the pocket, Smith will likely be releasing some errant passes. This is a Steelers defense that has collected 16 interceptions through 11 games going up against a QB that has thrown five picks in his four starts. Look for this trend to continue.

James Washington (PIT) Over 1.5 receptions. (-143)

This one is a bit of a flyer, but has good basis to work with. While Washington is often overshadowed by the bigger personalities on the Steelers’ offense, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has put his faith in the third-year wideout.

"James Washington is a guy that is getting on the field and needs to get on the field more," said Roethlisberger after his last game against the Baltimore Ravens. "But it's not because anybody's not doing good, it's just because he is a player that can make plays. We always talk about guys staying fresh. We need to rotate guys, get him on the field, because he's hungry, wants to be out there and make plays for us."

If Ben is one to stick to his word, Washington getting at least two catches should be in the game plan for this Monday Night.
