The final game of the NFL's Week 16 schedule is a Monday Night Football clash between the Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints.

Here's three of the best prop bets for this MNF showdown, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Dolphins vs Saints MNF Prop Bets Tonight

1. Ian Book - Passing Yards: Under 179.5 (-110)

With quarterbacks Taysom Hill and Siemian in COVID-19 protocol, 2021 fourth-round pick Ian Book will make his first NFL start against the Dolphins. Unfortunately for him, Miami's defense has been playing a lot better as of late, allowing 159 or fewer passing yards in each of its last three games. The Saints' receiving group has also been depleted all year and now even Tre'Quan Smith is questionable for tonight's matchup. Considering how Book began the year as New Orleans' No. 4 quarterback, expectations should be kept low for the rookie QB.

2. Jaylen Waddle - Receiving Yards: Over 64.5 (-110)

Standout rookie wideout Jaylen Waddle will rejoin Miami's lineup tonight after missing Week 15 due to COVID protocol. Now, the 23-year-old gets to go up against a Saints defense that's surrendered the ninth-most receiving yards to wide receivers in 2021. Waddle has been Tua Tagovailoa's favorite weapon all season, which is proven by him seeing at least nine targets in five of his last six games. With Waddle having hit the over on this prop in six of his last eight outings, it seems like a pretty safe bet that he'll do it again.

3. Alvin Kamara - Rushing Yards: Over 56.5 (-110)

With Book making his first start under center, it could be a pretty busy game for Alvin Kamara. The Saints haven't been shy to hand him the ball, proven by his 27 carries just two weeks ago. While Miami's run defense has improved a lot as of late, they haven't faced a running back as good as Kamara in some time. With the fifth-year RB rushing for just 18 yards on 11 carries in Week 15, he's going to want to bounce back and he'll have a great chance to do so with New Orleans' depleted offense.
