More or Less

Dak Prescott LESS than 300.5 Passing Yards

As much as I love Dak Prescott and the Cowboys passing offense, I will take LESS than 300.5 passing yards against the Eagles. 

Philadelphia’s defense has improved this season allowing less than 200 passing in each of their first two games. While Dak Prescott is an upgrade over both Matt Ryan and Jimmy Garoppolo, this prop is asking him to produce more than 100 yards.

We also saw Dallas get back to ground attack in Week 2. Both Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard will see enough work to keep Prescott’s yardage total below 300 yards.

From a sports betting perspective, Dallas is a decent favorite in this spot, giving 3 or 3.5 depending on where you look. Across sports books Dak’s player prop is set between 292.5 and 299.5 depending on where you look.

All of this points to picking Less in this spot.

Jalen Hurts LESS than 250.5 Passing Yards

Like his counterpart, I will be selecting LESS for Jalen Hurts passing yard total in this game. While the Cowboys defense has given up yardage each of the past two weeks to Justin Herbert and Tom Brady, I expect a different approach from Hurts.

He is a dual threat option that has produced 62 and 82 rushing yards in each of the first two weeks. Sportsbooks are hanging a passing yard prop right around 250 yards which doesn’t really give us an edge from that perspective.

If this was a total yardage More or Less I would be all over More in this spot. But since we are talking just passing yards, I will take the less.

More or Less

Miles Sanders LESS than 61.5 rushing yards

This one hurts a bit as a big Miles Sanders fan enjoying what he has done thus far. But this is not a great spot against a defense that has been stout against opposing rushers. They havent allowed more than 55 yards to a single rusher after facing Austin Ekeler, Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones.

Look for Philadelphia to find a way to get Sanders involved in the passing game and offset some of the lacking yardage on the ground.

From a sportsbook perspective, Sanders’ rushing prop was set to 59.5. It has been juiced to the under in a variety of spots. This points to expectations of Sanders not eclipsing 60 rushing yards. Take Less here.

CeeDee Lamb OVER 85.5 Receiving Yards

This situation sets up perfectly for CeeDee Lamb with Amari Cooper banged up heading into this game and Michael Gallup out. While he may garner more attention from Philadelphia due to this, I’m expecting a monster performance here.

I do have some concern with this aggressive line as most sportsbooks have set this line between 77 and 80 yards. But with Dak expected to approach 300 yards passing, Lamb should be a big part of that production. Go with More in for the Cowboys pass catcher on Monday Night.

If you want to make it extra spicy, you can combine all these picks for an even bigger payday. Remember to use promo code Pigskin for 100% match deposit up to $100 plus the free $5 game.
