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

Eagles vs Texans TNF Prop Bets Tonight

1. A.J. Brown - Any Time Touchdown (+110)

A.J. Brown has been exactly as advertised for the Eagles. Not only is the one-time Pro-Bowler on pace for about 1,600 yards, but he's already matched last year's touchdown total with five in six fewer games. There's a good chance that Brown can continue that scoring success against the Texans. Facing Houston six times as a member of the Tennessee Titans, the former Mississippi product found the end zone in all but one of those outings, amassing six total TDs. With the Eagles looking to establish a sizeable lead early on, don't be surprised if Brown crosses the goal line yet again.

2. Dameon Pierce - Receiving Yards: Over 18.5 (-110)

The Texans have been thrilled with Dameon Pierce's performances so far this season. While he's excelled on the ground, he's also been a decent pass-catching option, averaging 14.0 yards on 2.9 receptions per game. With the Eagles being 14-point favorites, the Texans will likely be forced to pass the ball more often. As it stands, Philadelphia allows 5.8 yards per reception as far as running backs are concerned, meaning Pierce would need about four catches to hit the over on this prop. Throw in the fact that No. 1 wideout Brandin Cook's playing status is up in the air and the Texans don't have many pass-catching weapons, Pierce should see enough work to hit the over on this prop.

3. Miles Sanders - Rushing Yards: Over 79.5 (-110)

Miles Sanders has looked great out of the backfield this season, averaging a career-best 80.4 rushing yards per game. That average has increased to 85.3 rushing yards in his last four outings and, now, he has a great chance to continue his run. The Texans are the only team in the NFL to have allowed more than 1,000 rushing yards to RBs (1,114). Houston also allows 5.6 rushing yards per carry (second-worst), which looks promising for Sanders, who averages 16.3 carries per game. Using a bit of math, the 25-year-old would need about 14 carries to hit the over — a total he's seen in five of his last six games. With the game script likely favoring a run-heavy performance from the Eagles, back Sanders to hit 80-plus rushing yards tonight.
