    Eagles vs. Buccaneers Player Prop Bets for Monday Night Football: Jalen Hurts, A.J. Brown, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Others

    Let's check out the Philadelphia Eagles vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers player prop bets tonight for Monday Night Football.

    A battle of two unbeaten teams on Monday Night Football, this Philadelphia Eagles vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers matchup is filled with star talent on both teams.

    Despite their 2-0 record, the Eagles’ offense — particularly their passing game — has been worse than we expected from this unit through two weeks this season. But coming off a long week after playing on Thursday Night Football in Week 2, can Jalen Hurts and A.J. Brown get back on track tonight?

    Meanwhile, for the Buccaneers, Baker Mayfield has been efficient to start the season with three touchdowns and zero turnovers. Mike Evans is averaging 118.5 receiving yards per game, but Chris Godwin has yet to find the end zone. They’ll be facing an Eagles defense that allowed 364 passing yards to Kirk Cousins last week.

    Which players should you be backing or fading tonight? Let’s take a look at our favorite Eagles vs. Buccaneers player prop bets.

    Top Eagles vs. Buccaneers Player Prop Bets To Target

    Our team of betting experts give out their favorite player prop bets for Eagles vs. Buccaneers on Monday Night Football.

    All odds are from DraftKings Sportsbook unless noted otherwise.

    Jalen Hurts Player Props

    • Passing Yards: 239.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
    • Pass Touchdowns: 1.5 (Over -105/Under -125)
    • Pass Completions: 20.5 (Over -120/Under -110)
    • Pass Attempts: 30.5 (Over -120/Under -110)
    • Interceptions: 0.5 (Over +150/Under -195)
    • Rushing Yards: 44.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
    • Anytime Touchdown Scorer: -105
    • First Touchdown Scorer: +650

    Blewis: The Eagles might be 2-0, but it’s not because of Jalen Hurts and this passing offense. Through two weeks, Hurts has been far less efficient than he was last season, as he’s averaging just 6.5 yards per attempt with a QBR of 39.7.

    You can chalk this up to a variety of factors, mainly early-season rust, getting adjusted to a new offensive coordinator, and going against Bill Belichick and Brian Flores-led defenses to start the season. But tonight doesn’t get any easier, as Todd Bowles is one of the best defensive minds in the game and gave Hurts fits two years ago.

    Hurts is a completely different quarterback than the last time they faced the Bucs in the playoffs. They also had an extra long week to prepare after just four days for Week 2.

    Philadelphia’s running game was unstoppable against Minnesota last week, but the strength of Tampa Bay’s defense is their ability to stop the run. Hurts only had 23 pass attempts last week, and if this game remains close, expect that number to go up.

    Player Prop Bet: Jalen Hurts over 30.5 pass attempts (-120 at DraftKings)

    A.J. Brown Player Props

    • Receiving Yards: 67.5 (Over -125/Under -105)
    • Receptions: 4.5 (Over -150/Under +120)
    • Longest Reception: 25.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
    • Anytime Touchdown Scorer: +135
    • First Touchdown Scorer: +800

    Soppe: Did you know that WR1s have accounted for 45.8% of receiving yards against Tampa Bay this season? It’s a fact. They are struggling against the opponents’ top target, and that leads us to the question: Who is that player in Philadelphia?

    You could argue that it’s DeVonta Smith (touchdown in both games this season, including a game-breaking 63-yarder last week), but I still side with size and label Brown as the WR1.

    He’s underwhelmed, he’s voiced frustration, and guess what? Brown has more targets this season than Smith. Sportsbooks have Brown projected to hold the edge in both receptions and receiving yards, so I’m not alone here.

    We all think the Eagles put up some points in this matchup, so why doesn’t Brown cash Katz’s bet on a chunk play to help me in the process?

    Player Prop Bet: A.J. Brown over 67.5 receiving yards (-114 at FanDuel)

    Katz: I am 100% buying a squeaky-wheel game for Brown after his blowup on the sidelines with Hurts last week. Off the field, these two are super close. Hurts is going to get his boy in the end zone this week for the first time.

    Player Prop Bet: A.J. Brown anytime touchdown (+135 at DraftKings)

    DeVonta Smith Player Props

    • Receiving Yards: 62.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
    • Receptions: 4.5 (Over -140/Under +110)
    • Longest Reception: 23.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
    • Anytime Touchdown Scorer: +150
    • First Touchdown Scorer: +850

    Blewis: Smith has been the lone bright spot in the Eagles’ passing offense so far this season. He has scored a touchdown in each of their first two games, including one for 63 yards against the Vikings last week.

    Eagles vs. Buccaneers Player Prop Bets for Monday Night Football: Jalen Hurts, A.J. Brown, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Others

    However, I think his touchdown streak will come to an end this week, with the Eagles making a concerted effort to get Brown in the end zone. But there’s no market available for that.

    I do think they’ll be passing the ball more tonight than they did last week when Smith only had five targets. Smith is usually really efficient when the ball comes his way, so let’s go with the over for his receptions prop.

    Player Prop Bet: DeVonta Smith over 4.5 receptions (-140 at DraftKings)

    Dallas Goedert Player Props

    • Receiving Yards: 37.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
    • Receptions: 3.5 (Over -145/Under +110)
    • Longest Reception: 16.5 (Over -125/Under -105)
    • Anytime Touchdown Scorer: +225
    • First Touchdown Scorer: +1200

    Blewis: Philadelphia has struggled to get Dallas Goedert involved in the offense so far. In Week 1, he had just one target and didn’t record a single reception, and last week, he had six receptions but for only 22 yards.

    Goedert is much better than his 2023 stats so far indicate, and he’s the undisputed third option in the Eagles’ passing offense. I’m not banking on tonight being his bounce-back game, however.

    In Week 1 against the Vikings, the Buccaneers held Hockenson to just 35 receiving yards on eight receptions.

    The Eagles tried getting Goedert more involved last week but failed to get anything going. They will try again this week, so let’s avoid taking the under on his receptions. But they might struggle to throw him the ball downfield, so let’s take the under on his longest reception.

    Player Prop Bet: Dallas Goedert under 16.5 yards longest reception (-105 at DraftKings)

    Baker Mayfield Player Props

    • Passing Yards: 227.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
    • Pass Touchdowns: 1.5 (Over +165/Under -215)
    • Pass Completions: 21.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
    • Pass Attempts: 33.5 (Over -125/Under -105)
    • Interceptions: 0.5 (Over -120/Under -110)

    So far this season, not only has Baker Mayfield yet to turn the ball over, but he’s also only been sacked once. However, going against an Eagles defense that gets after the quarterback and creates takeaways, that might change tonight.

    They will also be having some reinforcements on defense, as James Bradberry and Reed Blankenship will be back in the secondary after missing last week, although nickel corner Avonte Maddox is out for the season now.

    Look for Philadelphia’s defensive line to win this matchup against Tampa’s offensive line tonight, and put pressure on Mayfield and watch him throw an interception as a result.

    Player Prop Bet: Baker Mayfield over 0.5 interceptions (-120 at DraftKings)

    Rachaad White Player Props

    • Rushing Yards: 49.5 (Over -110/Under -120)
    • Rushing Attempts: 13.5 (Over -105/Under -125)
    • Longest Rush: 12.5 (Over -105/Under -125)
    • Receptions: 3.5 (Over +105/Under -135)
    • Anytime Touchdown Scorer: +130
    • First Touchdown Scorer: +800

    Katz: There is a lot more optimism surrounding Rachaad White after his admittedly much-improved Week 2 performance. However, let’s not forget that it was against the Chicago Bears.

    In Week 1, White carried the ball 17 times for 40 yards against a Vikings run defense that just allowed D’Andre Swift to run for 175 yards. Now, he gets an Eagles run defense that completely stuffed Alexander Mattison and Rhamondre Stevenson in each of the first two weeks.

    The Eagles have yet to allow a single run for 10+ yards. Stevenson and Mattison combined to total just 53 yards over the first two weeks. White also has just one carry for 10+ yards on the season, and it came last week against the Bears for 13 yards. Essentially, this is a two-unit play on White split into two bets that I love.

    Player Prop Bets (made earlier this week): Rachaad White under 47.5 rushing yards (-115 at DraftKings), and Rachaad White longest rush under 11.5 yards (+100 at DraftKings)

    Mike Evans Player Props

    • Receiving Yards: 53.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
    • Receptions: 3.5 (Over -166/Under +130)
    • Longest Reception: 22.5 (Over -110/Under -120)
    • Anytime Touchdown Scorer: +145
    • First Touchdown Scorer: +950

    Blewis: The player props for Mike Evans are surprisingly low tonight, especially given how productive he’s been through two weeks this season.

    Evans had both a 70-yard catch and a 30-yard touchdown reception last week, but that was against the Bears, who might have the worst defense in the NFL. Although the Eagles allowed a long touchdown to Jordan Addison last Thursday night, their “bend-but-don’t-break” defense is designed to limit big plays.

    I don’t see Evans having a catch for a big enough gain anywhere close to the two he had last week, especially now that instead of going against the Bears’ “pass rush,” they’ll now be facing the Eagles.

    Player Prop Bet: Lean Mike Evans under 22.5 yards longest reception (-120 at DraftKings) 

    Chris Godwin Player Props

    • Receiving Yards: 53.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
    • Receptions: 5.5 (Over +124/Under -160)
    • Longest Reception: 20.5 (Over -105/Under -125)
    • Anytime Touchdown Scorer: +225
    • First Touchdown Scorer: +1300

    Blewis: I mentioned that the Eagles’ defense typically doesn’t give up big pass plays, but they concede to give up short receptions underneath as a result. The biggest beneficiary of going against this defensive scheme on the Bucs will be Chris Godwin.

    Although Evans is their downfield threat, Godwin is usually the more targeted receiver in the passing game. If the Bucs struggle with the Eagles’ pass rush early, or they want to avoid Mayfield being pressured, they’ll lean on the quick game and get the ball out to Godwin early underneath.

    Player Prop Bet: Lean Chris Godwin over 5.5 receptions (+124 at DraftKings)
