Monday Night Football kicks off at 7:10 PM tonight with the Texans taking on the Saints in NOLA. There are a ton of great prop bets being offered on the action. The Props Network team likes these three.
Our Top Three Prop Bets for Texans @ Saints
1. Jared Cook will serve one up at the Super Dome
The Saints brought in Jared Cook to create more offensive production from the Tight End position. Cook should be a frequent target for Drew Brees, who has been waiting for a weapon at TE since Jimmy Graham left town. Brees might look to get the veteran Cook involved in the passing game early and often tonight.
Also helping to create end zone targets for Cook, is the shortage of other receiving threats in the Saint’s arsenal. After Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara, the Saints have yet to find a dependable pass catcher to bolster their offense.
Either Cook, or sophomore receiver Tre’Quan Smith needs to become that weapon for the Saints to have success this season. At 6’5″ and 254 Lbs, Cook should be Brees’s best new option in the end zone.
2. DeAndre Hopkins is going to be busy
It is likely that the Texans will be playing from behind in this game. To catch the Saints, they’ll need to run a high octane offense with plenty of passes to Deandre Hopkins and Will Fuller. While Hopkins will be shadowed by star CB Marshon Lattimore of the Saints in this game, he still should be in great shape to pile up catches in a hurry up situation.
DeAndre Hopkins had 7 or more catches in 8 regular season games for the Texans last year, and had double digit targets in 11 games with QB Deshaun Watson.
3. The Saints are looking for a fight tonight
The Saints have a chip on their shoulder after the controversial outcome of last years NFC Championship game. They might look to take out their frustration on the Texans right out of the gate tonight, and make a statement his in front of the Super Dome faithful.
Expect Sean Payton and the Saints to lean on Alvin Kamara in their first quarter possessions, and take an early lead by pounding the Texans with their best weapon. It’s also likely that the crafty Payton will have a trick play or two up his sleeve after an entire off-season to reflect on what happened against the Rams.
The Texans played road games in weeks 1 and 2 last season, and came out cold in both. Visiting the Patriots in week one of 2018, Houston managed only 2 field goals for a total of 6 points in the first half while the Pats put up a quick 21. The Texans only scored 7 first half points the following week at Tennessee, while giving up 14 to the Titans.
