Free MNF Prop Pick: Antonio Gates To Not Score a Touchdown @ JustBet Sportsbook

JustBet Sportsbook has a really interesting prop that I’m going to be looking at on Monday Night Football this week. TE Antonio Gates is a -115 favorite to score a touchdown in this game for the San Diego Chargers, and I think that it is a joke that this is the line. Remember that it’s not all about finding the prop bet that wins every single time, but finding the prop bet that wins often enough to be called a success. The oddsmakers are hoping that you’re going to fall into the trap of thinking that tight ends score a ton of touchdowns. Sure, the old Antonio Gates might have scored in this game more often than not, but this is a man that is a heck of a lot older than he used to be, and he doesn’t have the same skillset that he had back in the day either.

Gates has 438 receiving yards this year, and he has four straight games with at least five receptions. However, this is a man that has been consistent over the years. He has scored seven TDs in each of his last two seasons, and he has two scores this year. Gates did score a TD in each of his last three games of the season last year, but we are attributing more of that to luck than anything else, as he only had a total of eight receptions in those games.

Indianapolis hasn’t allowed a touchdown to a tight end this year, and the team has only allowed a total of four passing touchdowns in five games. Head Coach Chuck Pagano has himself a team that is flying all over the place, and there is a good shot that QB Philip Rivers is going to be held to just one touchdown pass or so in this game. If that turns out to be the case, I’m going to take my chances that Gates isn’t the man that he ends up finding. I need this prop to win right around 55% of the time to be profitable, and that’s what I’m shooting for in this game. Expect Gates to get shut down
