A Super Bowl rematch is set to cap off week 11 of the NFL regular season. The Philadelphia Eagles travel to face the Kansas City Chiefs in Arrowhead. Both teams are coming off a bye week so coaching is really going to matter. Both teams are pretty healthy going into the game, with Jalen Hurts finally off of the injury report for the Eagles.
With most recent primetime games being less than thrilling television, this one should be well worth staying up late. Each week, Canal Street Chronicles will preview some of the best props and wagers for every Monday primetime game. Thank you to our friends over at DraftKings Sportsbook for the wagering lines for the CSC Monday Night Football week 11 preview and props.
CSC MNF week 11 props and best bets
Chiefs game line -1.5(-136)
Yes, the often-repeated statistic about Andy Reid off of a bye week has been said ad nauseam this week but it is still true. Reid is 27-4 off of a bye. The Chiefs are very healthy going into this game while the Eagles are likely going to be missing one of their best targets in Dallas Goedert. The Chiefs offense has looked less than mighty lately. The bye week might have given them enough time to install more plays for their receivers. Travis Kelce has been the only reliable option in the offense, but they will need someone else to step up. Andy Reid will have some specific plays setup with the extra time to prepare. The Chiefs win over the Eagles by more than two points.
Patrick Mahomes over 285.5 passing yards(-115)
If the Chiefs are going to win this game, it is going to have to be on the arm of Patrick Mahomes. The Eagles boast the best run defense in the entire NFL so it will be difficult for Isiah Pacheco to find any running room. On the other side of the defense though, the Eagles are one of the league’s worst. The Eagles’ secondary is the fifth worst in the NFL, surrendering over 250 yards per game. A bye week Patrick Mahomes against one of the league’s worst defenses is likely going to mean tons of production for the passing game. Mahomes goes over 286 passing yards against the Eagles.
D’Andre Swift over 81.5 rushing + receiving yards(-115)
Without Dallas Goedert, expect D’Andre Swift to work the middle of the field against the Chiefs. Swift is averaging over three receptions per game and almost 20 yards with those catches. Along with this production, Swift is averaging over 68 rushing yards per game. The Chiefs are mediocre against the rush as well, surrendering 112 rushing yards per game. Expect Swift and the Eagles offense to take advantage of this matchup to keep the Chiefs on the sideline. Swift is going to touch the ball at least 15 times this game and should easily go over 82 yards production.
Long shot of the night
Rashee Rice anytime TD scorer(+240)
The Chiefs offense has to find some help in the passing game. Travis Kelce is the only pass catcher who has been consistent so far this season. This shows in the stats as well with the Chiefs only scoring 23 points per game so far this season. Although Skyy Moore and Marques Valdes-Scantling have been on the field much more than any other receiver, it is Rashee Rice that has garnered the most targets of any receiver. Rice likely has had set plays this season, but he should be able to see the field much more as the season wanes, especially off of a bye. In a great matchup, Rashee Rice will be targeted often and score this week.
