Monday Night Football's clash between the 1-7 New York Giants and 2-7 San Francisco 49ers is a classic example of two teams playing for next to nothing to gain in the NFL postseason, and everything to gain for sports bettors looking to cash in on the last game of the Week 10 NFL slate. Here are the five best prop bets for the Giants-49ers Monday night clash in the Bay Area.
All prop bets available via FanDuel Sportsbook.
5. Matt Breida to Score First 49ers Touchdown

There's been a lot of chatter surrounding the emergence of 49ers tight end George Kittle and new quarterback Nick Mullens in recent weeks. Breida's lingering injuries, meanwhile, have left him off the radar since his early-season numbers brought him into the national spotlight. That could change tonight with Breida expected to play.
4. Odell Beckham Jr. Over/Under 97.5 Receiving Yards

Odds: Over 97.5 (-108)
Odds: Under 97.5 (-118)
Despite scoring only two total touchdowns on the season, Beckham has still managed to haul in 100 or more receiving yards in five of the Giants' eight games. He's also on a streak heading into Week 10 with 143 receiving yards in Week 8 and 136 yards in Week 9.
3. Nick Mullens to Throw for 250+ Yards and the 49ers to Win

Former undrafted free agent Nick Mullens was one of the biggest surprises of the entire league in Week 9. He exploded for 262 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions on better than 72.7 percent completion and a 151.9 QB rating in his first career NFL start, which ended in a 34-3 win against the Oakland Raiders in Week 9. If the 49ers come out on top, you have to like +225 odds that Mullens helped them get there with 250 or more yards through the air.
2. Both Teams to Score 2+ Touchdowns in Each Half

Granted, neither the Giants nor 49ers offenses have been consistently impressive this season, but this an especially interesting prop with the possibility of parlaying it with another dual-team scoring prop offered by FanDuel Sportsbook. Given you can also bet both teams to score 25 or more points at +540 odds, you could double down with the featured one (two TDs scored by each team per half) for some even better value. Assuming each team converts at least one of their PATs on any of those four or more potential touchdowns, you'd be hitting both legs each of prop together.
1. Saquon Barkley to Score 3+ Touchdowns
Sure, Barkley hasn't scored three touchdowns in a single game all season, and he's scored two touchdowns only once, but as soon as you see the 31/1 payout line, there has to be some leap of faith involved. Barkley is a -110 shot to score one TD, +450 to score two touchdowns and then a massive bump to +3100 to sneak in a third, so this one is all about value.
