Saints vs. Panthers Player Prop Bets for Monday Night Football: Derek Carr, Chris Olave, Bryce Young, Miles Sanders, and More

    Lets take a look at the Saints vs. Panthers player prop bets for the first of two Monday Night Football games this evening.

    Our Monday Night Football doubleheader kicks off with the New Orleans Saints vs. Carolina Panthers in what will be No. 1 overall pick Bryce Young’s home debut.

    Last week, these offenses combined for just two touchdowns. That lack of offense expected in tonight’s game is reflected in the 39.5-point total. But which players will have a big night? Let’s take a look at the Saints vs. Panthers player prop bets for Monday Night Football.

    Top Saints vs. Panthers Player Prop Bets To Target

    Which player props should you be targeting for Monday Night Football? The PFN betting team gives out their favorite player prop bets for Saints vs. Panthers.

    All odds are from DraftKings Sportsbook unless noted otherwise.

    Derek Carr Player Props

    • Passing Yards: 230.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
    • Pass Touchdowns: 1.5 (Over +110/Under -140)
    • Pass Completions: 19.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
    • Pass Attempts: 30.5 (Over -120/Under -110)
    • Interceptions: 0.5 (Over -110/Under -110)

    Blewis: Derek Carr was pretty efficient in his Saints debut last week, throwing for 305 yards and averaging 9.2 yards per attempt.

    It’s hard to judge the Panthers’ performance against the pass last week because, in their loss against the Falcons, Desmond Ridder only had 18 attempts for 115 yards. But they will be without the best player in their secondary, CB Jaycee Horn, going against a Saints offense that has sneaky good depth at the WR position.

    Carr’s yardage prop is relatively low tonight, and that’s probably due to the low total. But with a group of receivers who excel on deep threats, maybe he connects with one of them downfield to inflate his passing yards for the evening and goes over his total.

    Player Prop Bet: Lean Derek Carr over 230.5 Passing Yards (-115)

    Chris Olave Player Props

    • Receiving Yards: 68.5 (Over -115/Under -110)
    • Receptions: 5.5 (Over +124/Under -160)
    • Longest Reception: 25.5 (Over -110/Under -120)
    • Anytime Touchdown Scorer: +205
    • First Touchdown Scorer: +1000

    Blewis: Chris Olave was a popular pick to have a breakout season in 2023, and his Week 1 performance only instilled confidence in his biggest fans. Despite leaving the game briefly due to an injury, Olave finished with eight catches for 112 yards, including one 45-yard reception.

    Against the Panthers last season, Olave had the best game of his rookie year, with 13 catches for 147 yards. Now, he has Carr and is going against a Panthers defense missing their best cornerback.

    Olave had almost a third of the targets last week despite missing a stretch of the third quarter in Week 1. If you believe in Olave’s breakout season as much as I do, then his yardage line for tonight appears to be way too low.

    Player Prop Bet: Chris Olave over 68.5 yards (-115)

    Rashid Shaheed Player Props

    • Receiving Yards: 37.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
    • Receptions: 2.5 (Over -160/Under +124)
    • Longest Reception: 19.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
    • Anytime Touchdown Scorer: +330
    • First Touchdown Scorer: +1400

    Soppe: Last season, the Panthers, despite a schedule with subpar quarterback talent on the opposition, ranked 21st in preventing yards per pass. That alone would mean targeting them through the air as an option, and with 2021 first-round pick Jaycee Horn on injured reserve (IR) with a hamstring injury, this is a good spot to load up on the Saints.

    In Week 1, Rashid Shaheed again showcased his game-breaking abilities. With Carr’s aDOT continuing to trend up (second highest in Week 1), the 4.3 speed of Shaheed is a weapon of mass destruction. He has a 30-plus yard grab in seven of his past 11 games and has been efficient in his young career (33 catches on 40 targets).

    Player Prop Bets: Rashid Shaheed over 36.5 receiving yards (-125 at DraftKings earlier this week), Shaheed to record 50+ receiving yards (+165 at DraftKings)

    Bryce Young Player Props

    • Passing Yards: 188.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
    • Pass Touchdowns: 0.5 (Over -230/Under +175)
    • Pass Completions: 17.5 (Over -110/Under -120)
    • Pass Attempts: 28.5 (Over -120/Under -110)
    • Interceptions: 0.5 (Over -125/Under -105)

    Blewis: It’s been a rough start for Bryce Young, to say the least. After struggling in the preseason — with his offensive line not doing him any favors — he struggled mightily in his first start in Atlanta. Last week, Young threw for just 146 yards, averaging 3.8 yards per attempt, and throwing for one touchdown but two interceptions.

    Meanwhile, the Saints’ defense made life difficult for Ryan Tannehill in Week 1. Tannehill averaged just 5.8 yards per attempt and was intercepted three times.

    saints vs. panthers

    The Titans have one of the worst offensive lines, and the Saints took advantage. They could find themselves in a similar situation tonight against the Panthers.

    Having said all of that, there could be a good buy-low opportunity on Young in his regular-season debut in front of Carolina’s home crowd. Let’s bank on turnover regression for both Young and this New Orleans defense.

    Player Prop Bet: Bryce Young under 0.5 interceptions (-105)

    Miles Sanders Player Props

    • Rushing Yards: 64.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
    • Rushing Attempts: 15.5 (Over +105/Under -135)
    • Longest Rush: 15.5 (Over -110/Under -120)
    • Receptions: 2.5 (Over +145/Under -190)
    • Anytime Touchdown Scorer: +170
    • First Touchdown Scorer: +800

    Blewis: The Panthers signed Miles Sanders away from Philadelphia in free agency to make him their featured back, and it showed last week. Against the Falcons, he had 22 touches, including four receptions.

    Sanders’ involvement in the passing game was a new development. His six targets last week were double the most he had in any game for the Eagles last season. In this offense that is lacking in playmakers, maybe that’s a sign of things to come.

    Sanders is a more capable receiver than what he was able to show in Philly. The line is still pretty low, and there’s plus money. Let’s take a flier on it.

    Player Prop Bet: Miles Sanders over 2.5 receptions (+145)

    Adam Thielen Player Props

    • Receiving Yards: 30.5 (Over -120/Under -110)
    • Receptions: 2.5 (Over -135/Under +105)
    • Longest Reception: 16.5 (Over -120/Under -110)
    • Anytime Touchdown Scorer: +290
    • First Touchdown Scorer: +1300

    Blewis: Adam Thielen played last week despite dealing with an ankle injury, which might’ve held him back. He finished the game with just two catches on two targets for 12 yards.

    Although he’s still presumed to be Young’s No. 1 option in the passing game, his props are very low across the board. It would be buying far too low, in my opinion, to take the under on his receiving yards or receptions, but not necessarily for his longest reception.

    At this point of his career, I don’t think Thielen is going to be much of a downfield threat anymore — especially in an offense with a rookie QB under center in his second start. It’s a low number, but I lean in that direction, if any, here.

    Player Prop Bet: Adam Thielen under 16.5 longest reception (-110)
