Seahawks vs. Giants Player Prop Bets for Monday Night Football: Geno Smith, DK Metcalf, Daniel Jones, and Others

Our betting team gives out their favorite Seahawks vs. Giants player prop bets for Monday Night Football. Will New York or Seattle have the bigger night?

The Seattle Seahawks vs. New York Giants game on Monday Night Football features quite a few players who could be in for big performances this evening. With Saquon Barkley out yet again, which of New York’s playmakers will step up in his absence? In last week’s loss against the San Francisco 49ers, the Giants had only 150 yards of total offense, averaging just 3.3 yards per play.

The Seattle offense, meanwhile, has been on fire the last two games after their Week 1 home loss to the Los Angeles Rams in which they only scored 13 points. Since then, they have scored 37 points in consecutive weeks and now rank sixth in the NFL in points per game.

Since the point total for this game opened last Sunday night, it has gone up from 45 to 47.5. If bettors and oddsmakers are expecting points in this one, which players are due for big performances tonight? Let’s take a look at the PFN betting team’s favorite Seahawks vs. Giants player prop bets for tonight.

Top Seattle Seahawks vs. New York Giants Player Prop Bets To Target

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

All odds are from DraftKings Sportsbook unless noted otherwise.

Geno Smith Player Props

  • Passing Yards: 248.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
  • Pass Touchdowns: 1.5 (Over -120/Under -110)
  • Pass Completions: 21.5 (Over -130/Under +100)
  • Pass Attempts: 33.5 (Over -130/Under +100)
  • Interceptions: 0.5 (Over +110/Under -140)

Blewis: Does this count as a Geno Smith revenge game? If you remember, former Giants head coach Ben McAdoo benched Eli Manning for Smith in 2017, which ended the legendary Giants quarterback’s 210-game starting streak.

The point spread for tonight indicates that it should be a close game, and I agree with that line of thinking.

Although they won by 10 points last week, the game wasn’t decided until the Seahawks’ touchdown and two-point conversion put them up 17 with 4:17 remaining, and their win the week before went to overtime. In both of these games, Smith easily cleared his passing attempts line of 33.5. Let’s count on that happening for the third game in a row.

Pick: Geno Smith over 33.5 pass attempts (-130 at DraftKings)

Kenneth Walker III Player Props

  • Rushing Yards: 64.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
  • Rush Attempts: 14.5 (Over -130/Under +100)
  • Receiving Yards: 11.5 (Over -120/Under -110)
  • Receptions: 1.5 (Over -150/Under +120)
  • Anytime Touchdown Scorer: -110
  • First Touchdown Scorer: +600

Blewis: After they drafted Zach Charbonnet, there was speculation that Kenneth Walker III might have to share a lot of the running back snaps with the rookie. Through three weeks, however, that has been far from the case, as Walker has 47 carries compared to 16 for Charbonnet.

We all know Pete Carroll’s reputation for liking to commit to the run game, and Walker’s rush attempts prop is relatively low tonight. You would think it doesn’t correlate well with Smith’s pass attempts over, but each of these players has gone over these props in consecutive weeks.

It’s not a strong play, but it’s still a lean.

Lean: Kenneth Walker III over 14.5 rush attempts

DK Metcalf Player Props

  • Receiving Yards: 61.5 (Over -140/Under +110)
  • Receptions: 4.5 (Over -150/Under +124)
  • Longest Reception: 22.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
  • Anytime Touchdown Scorer: +135
  • First Touchdown Scorer: +900

Soppe: Why am I of the belief that we see points in bunches on Monday night? This game involves:

  • Two of the five worst third-down defenses
  • Two of the five worst yards/play defenses
  • Two offenses that operate at or above average in pace

The Giants’ low-pressure rate through three weeks helps DK Metcalf, a receiver who hauled in 7.2 catches per game (at least five in every game) when facing bottom-10 pressure units in 2022.

Pick: DK Metcalf over 4.5 receptions (-150 at DraftKings)

Tyler Lockett Player Props

  • Receiving Yards: 51.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
  • Receptions: 4.5 (Over +110/Under -140)
  • Longest Reception: 20.5 (Over -120/Under -110)
  • Anytime Touchdown Scorer: +145
  • First Touchdown Scorer: +950

Tyler Lockett is surprisingly averaging a very low 7.9 yards per reception, and his longest catch of the season is only 16 yards. As a result, he is averaging only 34.3 yards per game, a 17-game pace of just 583.1 yards.

Although his yardage numbers are underwhelming, he has the highest target rate on the Seahawks this season. He will have a big reception eventually, but at plus money, the over on his receptions prop — given his usage and early-season role — is more enticing.

Pick: Tyler Lockett over 4.5 receptions (+110 at DraftKings)

Daniel Jones Player Props

  • Passing Yards: 230.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
  • Pass Touchdowns: 1.5 (Over +140/Under -180)
  • Pass Completions: 20.5 (Over -120/Under -110)
  • Pass Attempts: 32.5 (Over +110/Under -130)
  • Rushing Yards: 33.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
  • Interceptions: 0.5 (Over +110/Under -140)

Katz: It has been a rough start to the season for the Giants, particularly on the offensive side of the ball. Amidst New York’s struggles, Daniel Jones has still managed to display his rushing prowess in two out of three games.

Tonight’s game with Seattle could be pretty high-scoring. Jones should drop back to pass 35+ times. You have to anticipate at least a couple of designed runs, along with read options, and tactical scrambles.

Jones has rushed for over 40 yards in two of his first three games. I expect his mobility to be on full display as the Giants go all out in what is an early must-win game.

Pick: Daniel Jones over 33.5 rushing yards (-115 at DraftKings)

Darius Slayton Player Props

  • Receiving Yards: 40.5 (Over -115/Under -115)
  • Receptions: 3.5 (Over +120/Under -145)
  • Anytime Touchdown Scorer: +260
  • First Touchdown Scorer: +1600

New York has major offensive line issues, and is going against a Seattle defense that is fourth in pass rush win rate so far this season. I’m expecting the Giants to lean heavily into short and quick throws in this one, getting the ball into the hands of their receivers.

Instead of taking a gamble on who will be the biggest beneficiary in this scenario, let’s take the under on the reception prop from the player who might be the odd man out. That’s Darius Slayton.

The reason we’re going with Slayton’s under here is because he is the Giants’ deep-threat receiver (aside from Jalin Hyatt) and isn’t as involved in the quick passing game. His aDOT (average depth of target) of 14.5 is more than five yards higher than the next closest Giants pass catcher, and he has gone under 3.5 receptions in four of his last five games (including the postseason).

Pick: Darius Slayton under 3.5 receptions (-145 at DraftKings)

Darren Waller Player Props

  • Receiving Yards: 47.5 (Over -125/Under -105)
  • Receptions: 4.5 (Over -160/Under +124)
  • Anytime Touchdown Scorer: +195
  • First Touchdown Scorer: +1100

Blewis: As expected, Darren Waller is the Giants’ leading pass catcher in targets so far this season, but not by a wide margin. He is also only averaging 44 yards per game, and more than half of his 132 yards for the season came in their Week 2 comeback win over the Arizona Cardinals.

One major reason for his lack of production so far is that two of the three teams the Giants have played are the Dallas Cowboys and the 49ers, two of the best defenses in the NFL who each rank in the top five in success rate against the pass. Tonight, he faces a Seattle defense that is 27th through three weeks this season.

If Waller is going to be Jones’ favorite weapon this season, he should deliver tonight.

Pick: Darren Waller over 47.5 receiving yards (-125 at DraftKings)
