Monday Night Football Prop Bets

Here are three of the best prop bets for the Chargers vs Colts matchup, courtesy of NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Chargers vs Colts MNF Prop Bets Tonight

1. Austin Ekeler - Anytime Touchdown Scorer (-130)

With his ability to score through the air or on the ground, Ekeler is always a threat to find the end zone. LA's hybrid back is leading the NFL in total touchdowns for the second straight season and has racked up 34 scores in 30 games since the beginning of 2021, including 14 TDs in 14 games this year. All of Ekeler's touchdowns this season have come in his past 11 games, nine of which have produced at least one score. He shouldn't have a problem finding the end zone again versus a Colts defense that's allowing the eighth-most points in the NFL (24.1 per game).

2. Justin Herbert - Passing Yards: Over 270.5 (-113)

Herbert has been one of the best passers in the NFL since debuting in 2020, averaging 290.6 passing yards per game over his first three seasons so far. That trend has continued this year, as he's currently averaging 287.1 passing yards per game. His numbers have bounced back from a brief midseason slump, as he's topped 270 passing yards in five straight games while averaging a whopping 313.8 per game during that stretch. With the chance to clinch a playoff berth tonight, look for Herbert to have another big game against a Colts defense that just got shredded for 426 passing yards by Kirk Cousins.

3. Michael Pittman - Receiving Yards: Under 62.5 (-113)

Pittman may be averaging 62.7 receiving yards per game, but the bulk of those yards came early in the season. He's gone under this total in nine of his last 11 games, averaging 56.5 receiving yards per game during that span. It's hard to imagine him reversing that trend with backup QB Nick Foles under center in Week 16, as Foles has yet to throw a pass for Indianapolis this year. Pittman probably doesn't have much chemistry with Foles, likely leading to another quiet stat line.
