FanDuel Week 3 NFL Best Bets: Monday Night Football
Dak Prescott Over 24.5 Completions.
Prescott has picked up right where he left off before injuring his ankle last season. He led the Cowboys on a game-winning drive last week against the Chargers and has completed 76.5% of his passes this through the first two games. Prescott has a plethora of weapons, and eight different players have recorded at least four receptions thus far, led by Amari Cooper (16) and CeeDee Lamb (15).
With the game being a possible shootout, the Cowboys are slated to throw the ball over 61% of the time tonight — which equates to about 42 pass attempts on 69 plays. Prescott is projected to finish with 28.66 completions, with the likeliness of the over hitting being an astounding 80%. This pick has a return on investment of 41.4%.
DeVonta Smith Over 4.5 Receptions
Smith struggled last week after shining in his NFL debut, as Jalen Hurts was never able to find any rhythm. Smith finished the game with just two catches on seven targets for 16 yards. While the pair were not able to get on the same page, Smith and Hurts do have chemistry, and the Cowboys secondary makes for an appealing matchup. Dallas has permitted 32 receptions (64% completion percentage) and 483 yards to opposing wide receivers this year.
Smith, who has eight catches on the year, is projected to have 4.96 receptions tonight. Given that the over has a 62% chance of occurring, this prop bet is very intriguing, and the projected return on investment is 32.1%.
Cedrick Wilson Over 27.5 Yards Receiving & Over 2.5 Receptions
Wilson has been productive over the first two games despite being pretty far down on the Cowboys pecking order as the team’s fourth receiver. Wilson is already on pace to set career highs, as he has hauled in all five of his targets for 54 yards. Wilson had two receptions for 20 yards last week against the Chargers. With Prescott expected to toss the ball around at will, and the Eagles defense likely focusing on stopping Cooper and Lamb, Wilson could have a big game. Wilson is projected for 39.35 yards receiving tonight. The over has a win rate of 65%, with the return on investment at 22.5%.
Wilson is also projected to have 3.35 receptions. While FanDuel has listed the over odds at -102, which is a significant drop from the opening line of +110, it is still a good bet, with the likeliness of it hitting at 66%.
Jalen Hurts Over 244.5 Yards Passing & Over 21.5 Completions
Hurts is coming off a tough game last week against the 49ers, as he completed just 52.2% (12-for-23) of his attempts for 190 yards. He has completed 67.2% of his 58 throws this year. Hurts has a fantastic matchup, as the Cowboys secondary has been shredded for 717 yards this year. Dallas has allowed 65 completions at a 76.5% clip. Hurts, who averages 7.9 yards per attempt and 11.6 per completion, is projected to pass for 254.53 yards, with the likeliness of him hitting the over being 65%. The return on investment is 22%.
Hurts is also projected to complete 23.59 passes tonight. The over has a 76% chance of hitting, with the return of investment 50.6%.
Amari Cooper Over 5.5 Receptions
Cooper is off to a fantastic start to the campaign, and he should be highly involved in the offense tonight. He is protected for 6.28 receptions tonight, with the over getting a 64% chance of hitting. FanDuel lists the over odds at -114 which is slightly down from the opening line (-110), so grab it now before the odds change again.
Quez Watkins Under 2.5 Receptions
Watkins is projected for 1.88 receptions. While FanDuel lists the under at -146 odds which is a significant drop from the opening line of -135, it is still a good bet, as there is a 69% chance of it hitting.
