8 Best Prop Bets for New England Patriots-Buffalo Bills Monday Night Game

NFL primetime games often pit the best teams in the league against each other in front of a national audience for a chance to prove themselves as one of the NFL's elite. On Monday night, the game between the Patriots and Bills is far from that idealized state. The Patriots are favored by 14 despite the game being in Buffalo and by all accounts they should easily run away with the victory. It's Tom Brady vs. Derek Anderson, which isn't exactly favorable to the Bills. So if the game's going to be boring, the only thing to do is dig up some prop bets.

1. Josh Gordon to have 50+ Receiving Yards and the Patriots to Win (+118)

This one seems like a no-brainer right? Well, while it's likely that the Pats win, it's going to be freezing cold in Orchard Park Monday and Brady doesn't exactly perform great when it's below freezing. Still, Gordon has had 50 or more yards in two of his four games this year and is coming off a 100-yard game against Chicago.

2. LeSean McCoy to Score First TD (+1100)

The first hurdle to jump here is McCoy has to actually play in the game, but after he cleared concussion protocol on Sunday it looks like he'll suit up against New England. McCoy has yet to score a touchdown all season, which is why he's +1100, but the odds were going to be long for any Bills player on this one. 

3. Tom Brady to Throw for 300+ Yards and the Patriots to Win (+128)

Over the years, Tom Brady has owned the bills. In 31 games against Buffalo, he's 28-3, throwing for an average of 251 yards per game. However, he's thrown for 300+ in three of his last four games in Buffalo. With Sony Michel out, he'll have to sling the ball around a bit and likely have success. 

4. Buffalo Bills to Score Every Quarter (+550)

This one is a lot to ask of the Bills. Buffalo has not scored in all four quarters of any game this season, but have scored in three quarters twice this season. The Bills are currently last in the league averaging 11.6 point per game and have scored seven touchdowns all season so don't expect too much. 

5. Rob Gronkowski to Score 2+ TDs (+650)

Gronk is from Buffalo and he absolutely dominates the Bills. In his 13 career games against Buffalo he's scored 12 touchdowns and averaged 79 yards per game. In Orchard Park he's even meaner, scoring seven touchdown in seven games. Gronkowski isn't 100 percent healthy, but he is going to play tonight and surely get targets in the end zone. 

6. Derek Anderson to Throw for 250+ Yards and the Bills to Win (+790)

At the very least, these two things go hand in hand. If the Bills are going to somehow win, it'll be because Derek Anderson had a good game. For reference, Anderson hasn't thrown for over 250 yards since October 10, 2016 when he made a spot start for the Carolina Panthers. He threw for 175 yards and 3 interceptions in his first start with the Bills. He did throw for 287 yards in his only other appearance against the Patriots.... in 2007. 

7. Patriots to Win by 25-30 Points (+750)

Winning by four touchdowns is tough against any team in the NFL, but the Bills have already had it happen to them twice. They lost 47-3 in Week 1 against Baltimore and lost 37-5 in Week 7 against Indianapolis. The Patriots aren't exactly know for being nice to their opponents, so if the Bills can't score it might get ugly. 

8. Bills by 14+ Points (+2600)

This would be the biggest surprise of the season by far, but the Bills have done it before. They blew out the Vikings 27-6 in Week 3 of the season in the most puzzling game of the year. However, the Bills have only scored 14 or more points twice this year, so temper your expectations of a grand upset.
