The Las Vegas Raiders will play the franchise's first game in Sin City when they host the New Orleans Saints at $2 billion Allegiant Stadium on Monday Night Football. Established in 1960 as the Oakland Raiders, the franchise called Oakland and Los Angeles home before relocating to Las Vegas beginning this season. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the game will be played without fans in attendance. There are plenty of NFL picks available, but which ones should you choose?
For Monday Night Football, William Hill has set the Over-Under for Raiders quarterback Derek Carr's passing yards at 268.5, while the Over-Under for Josh Jacobs rushing yards is 65.5. Those are just two of NFL player props you can back with your NFL bets. Before making any Week 2 NFL prop picks, you need to see what SportsLine's Jen Ryan has to say.
A Fantasy football guru who also is a frequent guest on Football Diehards' show on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio, Ryan loves nothing more than to talk all things fantasy football and sports betting. In 2016 she was a finalist for the Best Football Series award from the Fantasy Sports Writers Association.
So far this season she is in the black with her NFL prop bets. She went 3-2 last week and is up +95 on the season. Now, she's honed in on Week 2 NFL picks and is only releasing her top player props here.
Top NFL player prop bets for Week 2
Ryan loves Eagles running back Miles Sanders to go over 81.5 rushing and receiving yards against the Rams. Sanders accounted for 1,327 yards from scrimmage in his 2019 rookie season, the most among first-year players and an Eagles rookie record. On Sunday, he faces a defense that last season was mediocre against the run, ranking 19th in rushing yards allowed per game (113.1).
"Just last week, Ezekiel Elliott gashed the Rams' defense for a combined 127 all-purpose yards," Ryan told SportsLine. "Los Angeles has allowed more than 81.5 yards on the ground and through the air to running backs in all but five games dating back to last season."

In addition, Ryan is high on a player to score a touchdown at +400 odds. "Why not bet him to catch one for a score with that kind of payout?" she tells SportsLine. She's sharing who that player is only at SportsLine.
