The New York Giants (2-10) will travel to the City of Brotherly Love to take on the Philadelphia Eagles (5-7) in a Week 14 NFC East clash on "Monday Night Football." Philadelphia is currently listed as a 9.5-point home favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

If you're looking to place a few alternative wagers on this one, here are four of the best prop bets for Monday night's game between the Giants and Eagles.

1. Carson Wentz Passing Yards: Over 238.5 (-112)

Carson Wentz has eclipsed 238 passing yards just six times this year, but the Giants' defense could give the 26-year-old signal-caller ample opportunities rack up passing yards stats here. New York's secondary really struggled away from MetLife Stadium, allowing 312.8 passing yards per contest across six road games in 2019.

2. Any Time Touchdown/Match Winner Double: Alshon Jeffery/Philadelphia Eagles (+195)

Alshon Jeffery has had an up-and-down year in 2019, but he draws a great matchup here. He leads the Eagles' wideouts with nine red zone targets on the year. If Jeffery finds the end zone, Philadelphia has a decent shot at winning, as since 2017, the Eagles are 11-6 in games that he records at least one TD reception.

3. Sterling Shepard Receiving Yards: Over 43.5 (-112)

Sterling Shepard hasn't produced like some expected he would since returning to action in Week 12, but he's got a shot to eclipse 42 receiving yards here. He has yet to finish a game with less than six targets this season. Additionally, Shepard has averaged 52.9 receiving yards per game across the 44 contests he's played with Eli Manning, who is starting for the injured Daniel Jones.

4. Total Touchdowns - Away Team: Over 2 (+124)

The two-time Super Bowl MVP has started two games this year and in both of those starts, New York found the end zone exactly twice. The Eagles, meanwhile, have surrendered 23.7 points per game this season, and just gave up 37 to the Miami Dolphins. Facing an Eagles' defense that has given up 22 passing TDs this season (tied for the 10th-worst total in the NFL), the Giants certainly have a chance to rack up at least three TDs on Monday night.
