Two NFC teams are the focus of Week 15’s MNF player props. The Eagles and the Seahawks both enter this prime-time matchup looking to end losing streaks. Seattle has lost four straight, while Philadelphia has lost back-to-back games.
This week originally featured a matchup between New England and Kansas City. However, for the first time ever, the NFL flexed out of that MNF matchup for a game with more pressing playoff implications.
Keep reading to see how to bet on the NFL online with the latest MNF player prop bets for this matchup. I will break down the bets that I think offer you the best chance of winning money. Also, I will tell you my predictions for each wager from this NFC showdown.

The Best MNF Player Props for Week 15
The Eagles (10-3) and the Seahawks (6-7) are both fighting for a playoff spot in the NFC. Philly needs to win out to claim the NFC East title. Seattle, on the other hand, needs a win to get back to .500 and stay alive for a Wild Card spot.
Here are my picks for the best MNF player props for Week 15. The odds for these MNF wagers were provided by Bovada Sportsbook.
Eagles Player Props
Philadelphia is reeling after losing to San Francisco (10-3) and Dallas (10-3) in back-to-back weeks. A win this weekend would help the Eagles hit the rest button and help them keep pace with the 49ers and Cowboys. Here are the player prop bets I would make on Eagles players this week.
A.J. Brown Anytime TD Scorer (+125)
Philly’s offense has struggled to put up points in recent weeks. One player who can change that with a big game this weekend is WR A.J. Brown. Football betting sites have Brown listed at +125 to score a TD this weekend.
Brown has the second-best odds of any Eagles player to score. He is second only to Jalen Hurts (-139) in this NFL Week 15 prop bet. I think Brown will score, and I would take him in this prop wager.
So far this year, Brown has had 90 receptions for 1,258 yards and seven touchdowns. He has been held scoreless the last two weeks, though. I believe that will change this week, as Philly is facing a much softer defense than they have in recent weeks.
A.J. Brown anytime TD scorer (+125)
Jalen Hurts Over 1.5 Passing TDs (-110)
Another player who should benefit from playing a weaker defense this week is Eagles’ QB Jalen Hurts. Hurts failed to lead the Eagles’ offense on a touchdown-scoring drive last week.

Back-to-back embarrassing losses can make or break a team. I believe that Hurts can use their recent defeats to motivate the Eagles’ offense. If he can get back to his MVP form from earlier this season, the team should look a lot better on MNF.
Hurts is listed at over/under 1.5 passing TDs for Monday’s game against Seattle. I have no doubt that Hurts can score twice, it is just a question of whether they will both be passing TDs. Any rushing TDs by Hurts would not count toward this wager.
As I mentioned above, I think Brown will get at least one TD this week. If Hurts can get another passing touchdown during the game, then the over on this wager will hit. I believe he will, and I would take the over on this MNF player prop.
Jalen Hurts over 1.5 passing TDs (-110)
Jalen Hurts Over 34.5 Rushing Yards (-110)
Hurts also needs to remain a factor in the Eagles’ rushing attack for Philly to get back to its winning ways. He has had just 50 total rushing yards in the last two games. So far this season, Hurts has 460 rushing yards and 12 rushing TDs.
Hurts is averaging 35.4 rushing yards per game this season. That is much lower than the 50+ rushing yards per game he averaged the last two seasons. However, even just hitting his average of 35 yards on the ground would be enough to hit the over in this MNF player prop bet.
Seattle gives up 4.4 rushing yards per carry, tied for the eighth-worst in the league. They have also allowed 17 rushing TDs this season, the fourth-most in the league. Hurts should be able to get 35+ yards on the ground and will likely score as well.
Jalen Hurts over 34.5 rushing yards (-110)
Dallas Goedert Over 4.5 Receptions (+130)
Eagles’ TE Dallas Goedert missed three games this season with a broken forearm. He returned last week against the Cowboys and appeared to be back in game shape. Goedert has 42 catches for 440 yards in the 10 games he has played this season.

"It's probably more one of those things, after a tough loss emotions are high and somebody probably said something that they didn't fully mean."

Bovada has Philly’s TE listed at over/under 4.5 receptions against Seattle. When healthy, Goedert has been a reliable and important part of the Eagles’ passing attack. I believe he will at least get enough targets to cover the over in this bet.
Goedert has five games this season with five or more receptions. I think he will add a sixth this weekend and have at least five catches against the Seahawks.

Seahawks Player Props
The other side of this exciting NFC matchup is the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle needs a win to keep their slim playoff hopes alive, and the Eagles’ defense is the perfect opponent for a slumping offense. Here are the MNF player prop bets I would make on Seattle this week.
D.K. Metcalf First Seattle TD (+500)
WR D.K. Metcalf has finally come alive this season. Five of his seven TDs this season have come in the last four games. Metcalf will need to have another big game if the Seahawks want to end their losing streak and upset the Eagles.

QB Geno Smith’s status is up in the air for this game, so Drew Lock could be forced to start again. Even Lock should be able to have a good game against Philly, though. Metcalf needs Lock to start hot for this first Seattle TD scorer bet to cash.
Bovada has Metcalf listed at +500 to score Seattle’s first TD this week. He is behind only RBs Zach Charbonnet (+350) and Kenneth Walker III (+375). I am confident in Metcalf scoring first, given how weak the Eagles’ secondary is compared to their front seven.
D.K. Metcalf first Seattle TD (+500)
D.K. Metcalf Anytime TD Scorer (+185)
If you want a safer bet, then you can also wager on Metcalf to be an anytime TD scorer. This wager is different than the one above because D.K. can score at any time, and it will still cash. For the bet above, D.K. has to be the first Seattle player to score a touchdown.
With a safer wager comes lower payout odds. Metcalf is listed at +185 in anytime TD scorer markets, compared to +500 in first Seahawks TD scorer markets.
It is still unclear which QB will be under center for Seattle. However, I believe that D.K. can score at least once, regardless of whether Geno or Lock is throwing him the ball. Also, the +185 odds still offer good value, even if it is a lower payout than the bet above.
D.K. Metcalf anytime TD scorer (+185)
Zach Charbonnet Anytime TD Scorer (+137)
Seahawks’ RB Zach Charbonnet has the shortest odds of any Seattle player to be an anytime TD scorer. He is listed at +137 odds, just ahead of Walker III (+140) and Metcalf (+185). Walker’s status is in doubt, though, so Charbonnet could be in position for the lion’s share of carries once again.

Bovada has the Seahawks listed at over/under 2.5 total TDs for this game. Even if you believe the under is the better bet, you can still bet on both Charbonnet and D.K. as anytime TD scorers.
As I detailed above, I believe that Metcalf will get at least one touchdown. Charbonnet could get the other TD and the under for Seattle’s total TDs would still be on the board. Charbonnet is the healthiest running back on a Pete Carrol-coached team, so he is likely to score at least once in this game.
Zach Charbonnet anytime TD scorer (+137)
