Boosted odds of +280 are being offered by Caesars Sportsbook on Tom Brady to throw for over 299.5 passing yards and over 2.5 passing TDs against the Giants on Monday night.
The veteran QB will be angry after his team slipped to back-to-back defeats against the New Orleans Saints and Washington Football Club. Tampa Bay is now 6-3 for the season, and it needs to get back to winning ways.
A Monday Night Football game against the Giants represents a golden opportunity to do precisely that. The Giants are 1-3 straight up on the road this season, and they are the 11-point underdogs for this game. Can Brady exploit their defensive frailties?
Can Brady Cover His Prop Totals?
Brady is averaging 318.9 passing yards per game this season. However, he has only gone over 299.5 yards on four occasions – 379 yards against the Cowboys in Week 1, 432 yards against the Rams in Week 3, 411 yards against the Dolphins in Week 5, and 375 yards against the Saints in week 8. He has gone under 299.5 yards in five games, although he came close when throwing for 297 yards against the Eagles.
The Giants only give up 263.1 yards per game on average, so Brady will need to be at his best to break the 300-yard barrier on Monday.
He has secured over 2.5 passing touchdowns in five of his nine games so far this season. He is averaging 2.88 per game. The Giants only allow 1.8 passing TDs per game, so once again, he will need to put in a strong performance to go over 2.5 in this game.
The Odds Boost Broken Down
Caesars Sportsbook is offering +120 on Brady scoring over 2.5 passing TDs and -115 on him throwing over 296.5 yards. The 299.5 yards in this odds boost is a little more challenging.
If you combine over 296.5 passing yards with over 2.5 touchdowns, you get a 2-leg parlay with odds of +240.
You are therefore getting a boost from +240 to +280, but the passing yard’s total is a little harder to hit at 299.5 yards.
Caesars will allow you to wager a maximum of $100 at the boosted price of +280 if you believe he will pull it off.
Additional Odds Boosts
There are some additional odds boosts on this game. You can get +400 on the Bucs to win the game straight up and Mike Evans to rack up over 99.5 receiving yards.
Evans is averaging 67.3 receiving yards per game, and his prop total line against the Giants has been set at 65.5 yards, so going over 99.5 yards will be challenging. He has exceeded that tally twice this season – with 106 yards against the Rams and 113 yards against the Dolphins.
Antonio Brown is still injured and Rob Gronkowski is a doubt, so Brady will look to pick out Evans and Chris Godwin on a regular basis.
If you think the Giants will prevail, you can get boosted odds of +600 on the Giants to secure moneyline win and Saquon Barkley to score a TD. Barkley is rated questionable as he recovers from an injury, but if he plays, he will be crucial to his team’s chances of inflicting a third straight defeat on the Bucs.
If you do not have a Caesars Sportsbook account, you can receive a 100% matched first bet sign-up bonus worth up to $1,001. This replaced the previous offer of a risk-free bet worth up to $5,000. The new offer benefits you if your first bet wins or loses.
