  • Leonard Fournette has -125 odds to score a touchdown against the New York Giants
  • Leonard Fournette has -110 odds to go over 64.5 rushing yards on Monday Night Football.
  • The New York Giants are giving up 4.6 yards per carry to opposing running backs.

TAMPA BAY, Fla. – The New York Giants are set to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in this week’s edition of Monday Night Football. Oddsmakers have installed the Buccaneers as 11-point favorites at home, and have pegged this game with a 49.5 point game total.

In a game that the Buccaneers are expected to control handily, Tampa Bay running back Leonard Fournette should cruise past his rushing yard prop of 64.5 yards (-110) and cash in on his anytime touchdown prop (-125).

Leonard Fournette came out of the Bucs bye week and effectively seized the backfield handling over 90% of the running back snaps against the Washington Football Team. Fournette turned 19 touches into 92 yards last week against Washington.

Online legal sports betting sites have given Fournette -110 odds to go over 64.5 yards on Monday with plenty of chances to hit this number based on sheer volume alone running out of the Bucs backfield.

An 11-point spread for the Bucs favors a run-heavy game script in the second half, should the Bucs get up early.

New York Giants Rush Defense

The New York Giants have not been successful against defending the running back position this season. The Giants are allowing 4.6 yards per carry to opposing running backs.

If that statistic holds true for this game, Fournette will be able to reach in rushing prop total in as little as 15 carries.

Sportsbooks for NFL betting have also given Fournette -125 odds to score a touchdown on Monday Night Football. Given the Bucs implied team total (30.5 points), expect the Bucs to have multiple scoring opportunities.

Even further, the Giants have given up seven touchdowns to running backs this season.
