Our NFL expert's best player prop bet picks for Philadelphia Eagles vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football
We’ve got another doubleheader on NFL Monday Night Football for Week 3 and the Philadelphia Eagles are already on their second primetime game of the season as they travel down to Tampa Bay to play Baker Mayfield and the 2-0 Buccaneers. The Bucs are 4-point underdogs at home despite being undefeated and a surprise team early on. There have been questions about the Eagles’ identity on offense now that Shane Steichen has departed for Indianapolis and we’ve seen Jalen Hurts a lot less mobile than last season. Let’s take a look at some props for the game, but make sure you also read our Eagles vs Buccaneers predictions on the side and total.
Rachaad White under 49.5 rushing yards (-114)

White has gotten a big workload to start the season, but the results have been mixed. The Bucs’ running back logged 17 carries in Week 1 for only 39 yards against Minnesota, but then another 17 carries for 73 yards against the lowly Bears. I expect the Eagles to come out fast offensively and look to get AJ Brown his much-needed TD within the first half. White only averages 3.2 yards per carry (ypc) this season which is a mirror of his career average 3.3. The Eagles front 7 is a force to be reckoned with, only allowing 3.4 ypc and the 2nd-fewest rushing 1st downs. I’d be shocked if White saw 17+ carries for a 3rd week in a row as the Bucs could be trailing most of this game. 0.75U
AJ Brown to score a touchdown (+137)
Line available at Bet365 at the time of publishing.
After betting Jamaal Williams to score last week as a main-card play I feel a bit scarred, but shouldn’t let a rare occurrence dissuade me from solid value. Brown has yet to reach the end zone this season and we saw the heated sideline discussions last Thursday night between him and Jalen Hurts. I expect Brown to be force-fed early and wouldn’t be shocked if he’s the first TD scorer (+800). Tampa Bay has allowed 3 passing touchdowns so far this season, but we saw them give up 2 to Kirk Cousins in Week 1. Carlton Davis, the Bucs’ CB1, returned to practice this week, but was limited due to a toe injury that kept him out in Week 1. If he plays, he likely will not be 100% and should be a weak spot for the Eagles’ offense to exploit. Brown had 11 TDs last season and has a lot of ground to make up if he wants to repeat that number. 1U
