Seahawks -1

Not really a surprise here. The majority of the public is riding with the Seahawks to beat the Washington Football Team on Monday Night Football. The spread opened this week with Seattle around a -2.5-point favorite. And, despite the fact that a lot of people are backing Seattle, the spread has moved against them as it's -1 or a pick'em in most places. The good news for Seattle is that Russell Wilson is back under center for his third game since returning from injury. The bad news? That hasn't translated to wins yet.

Seahawks -166%72%

Under 46.5

Can't really blame the betting public for not expecting points in this one as two of the NFL's worst offensive units go head to head in primetime. Since Russell Wilson has returned from injury, the Seahawks are averaging a whopping 6.5 points scored per game. As for Washington, they come in after two straight wins, but they've still scored more than 30 points just one time this season. Even when they win, the scoreboard doesn't get lit up. One thing to note is that the under has been quite popular with 53% of bets backing it, but just 33% of the money is on the under. That may indicate sharp money on the over.

DK Metcalf to score First TD @ +700

Another one that is really not a surprise when you think about the two teams. DK Metcalf will be the most talented offensive player on the field on Monday Night Football, so taking him to score the first TD at 7/1 odds is pretty good value. The obvious hurdle is that the Seahawks don't score a lot of points. But, another week with Russell Wilson under center should improve his chances. Add that to the fact that Washington is without Chase Young and maybe DK can get in the end zone early.

Antonio Gibson to score an anytime touchdown @ +110

Another TD scorer bet that makes all the sense in the world. Taylor Heinicke has been solid for Washington this season, but it's Gibson that makes the offensive unit tick. Two weeks ago, in the shocking win over Tampa Bay, Gibson found the end zone twice. Last week, he was held without a score but if Washington is going to compete on Monday Night Football, they're going to have to get Gibson a bunch of touches. At plus money, it's good value.

Terry McLaurin to score a touchdown and Washington to win @ +225

Out of all the bets on this list, this is the one I'm tempted to tail. I don't really love how Seattle is playing right now and despite the fact that Heinicke isn't a great QB, Terry McLaurin is certainly a great wideout. McLaurin has scored two TDs in the last four weeks, including a score in last week's win over Carolina. He's seen more than 7 targets in every game except one this season. Expect another big night from Terry McLaurin.
