Monday Night Football Odds

Will you be looking to double up or simply save your week? All season, you’ll get a Monday Night Football breakdown from the team at VegasInsider, starting with the Broncos at Seahawks, then all season long.

Seattle is our host to start the season. This game became an instant must-see when the former team traded with the later club to acquire the services of their current starting QB. Almost 2-time Super Bowl Champion Russell Wilson will be calling plays against a team where he holds the all-time passing record.

MNF Odds

It’s been a while since these teams have played. The two cities are 1,300 or so miles apart, which isn’t even a long flight. Their affiliations being what they are, this is a possible future Super Bowl matchup play. This one is on Sep. 12, opened at -4.5 for Wilson, and he's -220 on the Money Line. That home dog will get you +180, and the total is 41.5.

Broncos vs Seahawks Game Matchup

Denver went 7-10 last year (8-9 ATS) with Teddy Bridgewater at the helm. They averaged less than 20 points a game. You better have a stout defense if you’re not even putting up three TDs. The Broncos were just that, third in points allowed averaging less than 19.

The Seahawks finished 7-10 last year (9-8 ATS). Last season’s version was a middle-of-the road team on both sides of the ball, and the record shows that. Wilson’s QBR for the season was fifth among starters at 103.1.

Sometimes, looking at last season can help you decide which way to go on a play. The Broncos won their last game but lost four of five down the stretch. Seattle won four of their last six to help turn that record around a wee bit after a 3-8 start.

Monday Night Football is an American tradition, and an average of over 13 million viewers watched MNF football last year. What teams are actually playing isn’t really an important aspect for most sports bettors. Where you are in your league standings, how many parlays you have tied to the game, and who’s left on your fantasy roster are all as important as the teams involved.

Some players never touch those individual night games. If the initials end in F, TNF, SNF, MNF, they stay clear of any action. Others will sometimes do the unthinkable, attempting to make up all their losses from the previous weekend in one fell swoop.

Rolling with double or nothing isn’t usually a recipe for enjoying a broadcast. Sometimes, if you’re having a winning week, that solo game can be a perfect spot to pounce on a live-action play. Maybe a big favorite gives up an early score, and that double-digit line is now down to four.

Other Ways to Bet on Monday Night Football

One wager that’s always exciting is which player will score the first touchdown of the game. Since there’s no need to bounce from game to game, when there’s only one contest on the schedule, playing that first-TD proposition is always fun, especially when you cash.

Seattle may have lost their play caller, but they still have Tyler Lockett, who can score from anywhere on the field. Rashaad Penny averaged over six yards a carry last year and made it into the end zone six times. Wilson may be getting older, but his legs still make him a threat to run for it all anytime his team is in the red zone. If Melvin Gordon gets the handoff anywhere near the end zone, he’s tough to stop, as he scored eight of them last season.

Single game parlays make up more of the action when it’s the only game on TV. Props that can be matched together, including who will score, number of receptions and yards rushing, can all be combined on one ticket dramatically increasing the odds payoff. Of course, as with all parlays, if even one play loses, the entire ticket is trashed.

MNF Betting Tips

How many times have you seen someone try to save an entire weekend with one play? If you struggled on Saturday with your NCAA plays and then most of those NFL opinions you had were wrong too, Monday isn’t your problem. Every week during the NFL season, even for the best sports bettor, is a unique experience.

Sometimes, you just ain’t seeing it! Even when, from the beginning of your handicapping week, this game was your top selection. Honestly, if you’re having a run like the one described, how much credibility does your best bet for this week really have?

Are you heading into Monday Night Football on a heater? That ball, the way it’s shaped, it bounces funny. Sometimes, they roll your way, and your account is flush. Having that weekend heading into MNF? Even if this game was your best bet, you need to know when it’s time to be steady with your units and when it’s time to pounce.

We’ve all had times when everything goes right with a play, and you cash fists full of tickets. The side, the total, your props, the final leg in multiple parlays, they are all winners. There’s no such thing as house money. Making a big play when you’re using profits needs to be less gambling and more investing.

One way to check your big bet on your Monday Night Football Game is the sick test. Simply ask yourself how sick you will feel if this bet loses. When you’re okay either way, you just might be doing the right thing.

Monday Night Football FAQ

When does Monday Night Football start?

This season, MNF opens with the Denver at Seattle game and runs all the way until Week 17 and the Bills at Bengals. In Week 2, there will be two games.

How can I watch Monday Night Football?

ESPN went all-in on their Monday Night Football broadcast by signing the Joe Buck and Troy Aikman show away from Fox. Games on ESPN (and ABC) are excellent since you just need a decent signal, and you’re watching anywhere.

Buffalo, a team without a Super Bowl, are slight favorites at +600 over Tampa Bay (+700) and the Chiefs (+900) to win this year’s NFL title.
