Week 2 of the NFL season is here as the Buffalo Bills are set to take on the Tennessee Titans in the first matchup of a double-feature Monday night. As exciting as the matchup will be, even more so the case is when you have a little skin in the game.
Here are three must-play props for tonight:
Must-play props for Bills vs. Titans
It’s a matchup of the two of the AFC’s top teams in the first of two Monday night games and now you can join the action with DraftKings, FanDuel, or one of the many other online sportsbooks.
Buffalo looks to keep it rolling after setting the tone of the season in the opening matchup of Week 1 while the Titans are looking to redeem themselves after being upset at home by the New York Giants.
Josh Allen | Over Total Passing Touchdowns
Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen put on an absolute show in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams, a trend that expects to continue against the Titans. Allen threw for nearly 300 yards while rushing for another 56 and scoring three total touchdowns — two by air and one by land.
The impressive evening came despite two interceptions thrown, signaling that the Bills — as an offensive unit — have surprisingly even more room to grow. That growth may be seen as early as tonight.
While the Titans allowed just 21 points last week, the Buffalo Bills are in another class ahead of the New York Giants. Josh Allen is not Daniel Jones, and he will certainly show that tonight.
Take the over on passing touchdowns from Allen.
Derrick Henry | Under Total Rushing Yards
Against the New York Giants, Derrick Henry managed just 82 yards. To say “just 82 yards” is inherently unfair, but such is the standard that Henry has set for himself. Tonight’s task will be no easier for Henry as he faces a Buffalo Bills defense that gave up only 52 total rushing yards in Week 1.
Nothing will be given by Buffalo, and despite the boatload of carries Henry is sure to receive, it’s not looking likely that he hits the over tonight — o/u currently listed at 85.5, according to DraftKings.
Stefon Diggs | Over Total Receiving Yards
As Josh Allen’s favorite target, Stefon Diggs also had himself an impressive game against the Rams in Week 1. The Bills receiver racked up 122 yards on eight receptions while snagging a touchdown to boot. All of that was against one of the top corners in all of football, Jalen Ramsey.
With the Tennessee Titans up tonight, Diggs has — on paper — a significantly less challenging night ahead of him. The Titans will be without starting corner Kristian Fulton and will rely on rookie Roger McCreary, second-year corner Caleb Farley, and Chris Jackson (seventh-round pick in 2020).
Yes, the Titans still have Kevin Byard, considered by many to be the top safety in football, but there is only so much he can do when the Bills also have Gabe Davis looking to take the top off of every defense.
Against a young, inexperienced, and injured Tennessee secondary, expect Diggs to have every opportunity to rack up yards.
