Last week, neither the New Orleans Saints nor the San Francisco 49ers looked all that sharp. The difference is, the Saints found a way to win, while the 49ers were absolutely embarrassed by the Seattle Seahawks. Will this week be any different? Our NFL handicappers take a look at the NFL props for our Monday Night Football picks!

Will Frank Gore Score a Touchdown?
Gore had an absolutely atrocious game last week trying to get going against the Seattle front seven. This week, he should find the sledding just a tad easier against a New Orleans defense that is still prone to giving up a ton of yards and a boatload of points. Unlike other situations in the NFL, there is no doubt who is getting the ball by the goal line for the Niners when they’re down close. The University of Miami grad is going to be a key in this game, and if he doesn’t find the end zone at least once, the 49ers aren’t going to stand a chance of winning this game. Don’t think that HC Mike Singletary doesn’t know that either. Go with Gore to Score a TD (+115 at Hollywood Sportsbook) on Monday night.

Vernon Davis Over/Under 60.5 Receiving Yards
There could be a very, very soft underbelly for the New Orleans Saints in the form of defending the tight end. Last week, TE Visanthe Shiancoe absolutely tore them up, and he was the only man that really had no defense against the Minnesota Vikings. This week, QB Alex Smith’s favorite target is going to be his tight end once again, as TE Vernon Davis is one of the most underrated players in the league at this point. Don’t be overly shocked to see him go absolutely bananas in this game, especially after having a solid start to the season last week. We’d be quite surprised if he didn’t get to Over 60.5 receiving yards (-115 at Hollywood Sportsbook).

Reggie Bush Over/Under 55.5 Rushing + Receiving Yards
Last week, we didn’t get a huge look at what RB Reggie Bush could do against a very strong Minnesota front seven. This week, with the 49ers posing less of a challenge, there could be significantly more touches in store for the one time No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft. Bush would love a big game to silence his critics amongst all of this Heisman Trophy garbage from 2005. HC Sean Peyton knows that he really needs to put the ball in Bush’s hands at least ten times in this one, whether it be in the passing game or as a running back. If he does that, we’ll take our chances with Over 55.5 rushing and receiving yards (-115 at Hollywood Sportsbook).
