The first Monday Night Football Game has the Buffalo Bills against the Tennessee Titans. The Bills were impressive in their opening night win over the Los Angeles Rams. Buffalo is the home team.

The numbers: Buffalo is favored by 10 and the total is 47.5. The money line is Buffalo -480 and Tennessee +260. Line has moved from 9.5.

Coaching Matchup: Bills Head Coach Sean McDermott over Titan’s Coach Mike Vrabel.

Player Props: Josh Allen over 41.5 Rushing Yards. The price is -117. In the season opener, Allen rushed for 56 against the Rams. He will go over. Stefon Diggs over 60.4 receiving yards. The price is -119. Diggs had over 123 yards against the Rams. The magic continues and he goes over.

The consensus: Bills is getting 61% of the action. The over is getting 62% of the money.

The Selection: The Bills had 11 days to prepare for this game. This is also the home opener. Bills Mafia will make it difficult for Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry.  Titans are coming in off a disappointing loss to the Giants. Look for the Bills to create at least two turnovers with their defense. Take Bills minus the points and the under.

The second game has the Philadelphia Eagles against the Minnesota Vikings. Eagles held on to win their season opener against the Detroit Lions. The Vikings controlled the Green Bay Packers by a score of 23-7.

The numbers: Eagles are favored by 2.5 and the total is 50.5. The line opened at 2. The money line is Eagles -130 and Vikings +110.

Coaching Matchup: Eagles Coach Nick Sirianni over Vikings Head Coach Kevin O’ Connell. This is O’Connell first head coaching job in the NFL.

Prop bets: Minnesota QB Kirk Cousins over 278.5 yards passing. The price is-117. He goes over. Cousins over 0.5 interceptions. He also throws 1 interception. The price is -101. Justin Jefferson over 95.5 yards The price is -119. Take him over/

The Selection: The Eagles dominated the Lions for three quarters and had to hold on to win the game. The Vikings pose more of a challenge. Justin Jefferson should be able to exploit an improved Eagles secondary. The line should be higher than 2.5 so I am going with the Vikings and the over in this game.

Follow me on Twitter during the game and look for my preview of the Thursday Night Game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns here in Bettors Insiders. My record on Thursday Night is 4-4 so far with three prop bets and an under win.
