Holding on to a two-game lead with five games to play, Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals will face the Los Angeles Rams on Monday Night Football. The Rams are in second place in the NFC West, and a victory for the Cardinals would make it a formality that they'll win the division. It's been a relatively quiet year for Arizona wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins because of injuries and the fact that he's playing in an offense that loves to spread the wealth, so which side of the over-under for receiving yards (58.5) should you back as you make your Cardinals vs. Rams NFL player props?

The latest Monday Night Football NFL props from Caesars Sportsbook also lists Hopkins at +900 to be the first touchdown scorer, and he's scored the first touchdown of the game twice in his last three starts. Which value plays are out there as you look to place your Cardinals vs. Rams prop bets? Before betting any NFL props for Monday Night Football, you need to see the Rams vs. Cardinals prop predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,200 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters Week 14 of the 2021 season on an incredible 132-94 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.

The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

It can also be used to crush NFL prop picks. Last season, the player over-under prop picks went 389-310, returning over $3,000.

With Rams vs. Cardinals on Monday Night Football, the model has evaluated the NFL player props and found five strong bets. You can only see them here.

Top NFL player prop bets for Cardinals vs. Rams

After simulating Rams vs. Cardinals 10,000 times, the model predicts that Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray goes under 264.5 passing yards. Murray has averaged an impressive 9.2 yards per pass attempt and 293.5 yards per game in four starts at home this season, but the Rams have made life difficult on the former Heisman Trophy winner since he entered the league.

Murray has averaged just 203.2 yards per game in five starts against the Rams and has just an 84.8 QB rating in those starts. Coming off of a bad-weather game in Chicago and missing the previous three weeks with an ankle injury, this will be the first time he's asked to throw the ball regularly in nearly six weeks. The model predicts he only throws for 232 yards on average.

SportsLine's NFL model also says that Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. goes over 46.5 receiving yards. Beckham joined the Rams roughly a month ago and largely looked like a luxury signing at the time with the Rams' offense firing on all cylinders. However, an injury to Robert Woods has put Beckham into a larger than expected role.

Through three games, he's caught nine passes for 127 yards and two touchdowns. He played 98 percent of the snaps against the Packers in Week 12 and 53 percent of the snaps in a blowout win over the Jaguars last week. In a more competitive game, you should expect to see a lot of Beckham. With so much attention focused on Rams star wide receiver Cooper Kupp, the model likes Beckham to finish with 53 receiving yards on average.
