PFF team best bets on Monday night’s NFC battle to close out week 2, Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles:

Eager Eric: Eagles -2.5 (-110 BetMGM)

• The Vikings got off to a good start on Sunday against the Packers in Kevin O’Connell’s first game as head coach. However, this week, the Eagles will likely be able to test a poor Vikings secondary with AJ Brown and DeVonta Smith in ways the Packers couldn’t, which could lead to a long recovery day for Kirk Cousins ​​and Co. Don’t play this to -3 if you get there, as Justin Jefferson o7.5 taking more money is the best play.

Ben Brown: Kirk Cousins ​​O 4.5 rushing yards (-125 BetMGM)

• Cousins ​​was quiet from a rushed perspective in Week 1 as wide receivers were so open in the Packers’ secondary that it was simply pitch and catch Kevin O’Connell’s new scheme. Things could get a little tougher on Monday night, facing one of the best strikers in all of football. Philadelphia have the fifth-best opponent-adjusted pass-rush rating and should force Cousins ​​into some uncomfortable situations. If he manages to break contention on one of these plays, then that number of rushing yard props should drop quickly.

Nathan Jahnke: Alexander Mattison O 5.5 rec. yards (-115 BetMGM)

• The Vikings’ inside line has had a combined pass rating of 43.5 passes over the past two seasons, the third-lowest rate in the league. Meanwhile, the The Eagles’ defenders have an 84.9 passing rating for the past two seasons, the third highest rate. Mattison’s participation goal remains consistent when the Vikings are under pressure – while the rest of the Vikings see a decrease in participation – and he sees a significantly higher target share against zone defenses like eagles compared to man.

Sam Monson: Miles Sanders O 57.5 yards (-110 BetMGM)

• The Eagles have the best offensive line in the league, and while the Vikings’ defense looked better with a healthy contingent in Week 1, they were beating the decimated Green Bay O line. Miles Sanders has gained more yards than his support after the week 1 contact and remains the clear #1 guy in that backfield – even if other backs are worked on and Jalen Hurts also gets his run numbers.

Arjun Menon: Miles Sanders O 13.5 rushing yards (-105 DraftKings)

• Sanders has one of the best explosive run rates in the NFL, and he’s running behind one of the best offensive lines in the NFL with a very mobile QB that will open up more lanes for him. He hit that number in 7 straight games, and AJ Dillon and Aaron Jones got it right last week.
