Player Props, TD Scorer Bets for MNF Week 14

DeAndre Hopkins Over 75.5 Receiving Yards (-114, FanDuel)

Hopkins has made up for lost time since serving his six-game suspension. Arizona’s superstar wideout has 87-plus receiving yards in five of his six appearances this season, with his lone stinker coming against a stout Seahawks secondary in Week 9.

The Patriots’ pass defense has been quite terrifying this season, especially in Foxborough, but it has struggled to contain elite wide receivers, a la Stefon Diggs (92 yards) and Justin Jefferson (139 yards) the past two weeks. Even Tyreek Hill went for 94 yards against this vaunted Belichick defense in the season opener.

Rondale Moore is out with a groin injury, so “Nuk” should get peppered with even more targets from his two-time Pro Bowl quarterback.

Hunter Henry Over 30.5 Receiving Yards (-110, DraftKings & BetMGM) | Anytime TD Scorer (+350, FanDuel)

Hunter Henry hasn’t exactly played lights-out football in 2022, but with his low receiving prop total set at just 30.5 yards, he doesn’t need to.

New England’s top tight end gets a match made in heaven when he enters the desert that is Arizona Monday night. The Cards have given up the most receptions (6.9), receiving yards (73.3), and receiving touchdowns (0.8) per game to tight ends this season.

They also had allowed an opposing tight end to amass 32-plus receiving yards in its first 11 games before ending the woeful streak against the Los Angeles Chargers last week. 

Arizona has been just as dreadful at defending their end zone, surrendering an NFL-worst nine receiving scores to tight ends. Henry has scored just twice on the season, but Jakobi Meyers – the team’s leader in receiving touchdowns – is out, so Henry should see a few extra looks closer to the goal line.

Mac Jones Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (+155, BetRivers)

If you’re going to back Henry’s touchdown scorer prop, then you should also consider putting a unit on Jones tossing for two touchdowns. In both games that Henry scored this season, the quarterback for New England threw for a pair of touchdowns (once by Jones, another by Bailey Zappe).

Jones has thrown for multiple touchdowns just once on the season, but he gets a golden opportunity to log his second such game Monday night. The Cards allow the second most touchdowns through the air at precisely two per game, and have given up multiple passing touchdowns seven times in 12 games.

Meyers is of course out, but running back Rhamondre Stevenson is more than capable of stepping up and catching a pass for six points.

Rhamondre Stevenson Under 79.5 Rushing Yards (-110, BetMGM)

Stevenson’s been the only shining light in the Patriots’ dim offense. He leads the team in catches, scrimmage yards, and total touchdowns, and has been the team’s best running back by far. However, his Week 14 rushing prop total may be a little too rich for our blood.

This will be Stevenson’s fifth start of the season with Damien Harris highly doubtful to play Monday night. And while that should spell big rushing numbers for Stevenson, he hasn’t been able to exploit this kind of opportunity in the past.

He’s exceeded 79.5 rushing yards just once all season. Even in his four previous starts, he failed to hit the 80-yard mark all four times, while averaging just 57.3 yards on the ground.

Belichick has never really been a fan of implementing a workhorse back. Apart from a 25-carry day against the Detroit Lions in Week 5, Stevenson hasn’t reached 20-plus rush attempts all season. Unless the offense brings about a huge lead in the night (which is doubtful), he won’t see enough carries to hit the Over.
