Monday Night Football Player Props – Bills vs. Titans (Week 6)
The Buffalo Bills will hope to have an emphatic encore after downing the Kansas City Chiefs. They get a chance to do it under the bright lights of Monday Night Football in week six, and it’ll come on the road against the Tennessee Titans.
Betting on that game could get tricky, but you can simplify things by simply betting on how the top players will perform. That has me eyeing some fun Bills vs. Titans player props.
Will Josh Allen and Derrick Henry light it up, or is there better value elsewhere? Let’s find out as I break down the best player props for Monday Night Football in week six.
Josh Allen to Score a Touchdown (+135)
This is the best price you’ll find at the top NFL betting sites, but it’s a good price for a guy who remains lethal with his legs.
Like, really lethal.

Josh Allen found paydirt on the ground last week, and that was his second rushing score of the season. He’s a solid bet again in week six, as he’s rushed in scores 8+ times in every season he’s been in the league.
It’s technically true that the Titans have been stingy against rushing quarterbacks so far, but they’ve still given up seven scores on the ground (two to quarterbacks).
Considering Allen basically is Buffalo’s top rusher, plus money for him to punch one in feels like a steal.
Derrick Henry to Score the 1st Touchdown (+500)
You can play it safe and bet on Henry to simply score at any point on Monday Night Football (-200). I won’t fault you for getting a likely “gimme” bet out of the way.
After all, Henry has managed to find the end-zone seven times in six games so far in 2021, and this is a guy that has topped 12+ rushing scores in his previous three seasons.
The guy has been a problem.
How dominant has Derrick Henry been?
Most Rush Yards over 40-game stretch NFL History:
Henry 4,792 (2018-21)
Jim Brown 4,759 (1963-65)
O.J. Simpson 4,739 (1972-75)
Terrell Davis 4,597 (1996-98)
Eric Dickerson 4,594 (1984-86)

I’ll go a bit bigger here, though, seeing as the Titans need to strike early if they want a chance of winning this one.
There is no getting around Buffalo’s nasty run defense. They’ve allowed the fewest rushing yards on the year, and they’ve (gulp) given up zero rushing touchdowns to running backs.
However, what sets the tone better for this game than Henry punching one in? That’d fire up the home crowd, and it’d also make bettors pretty happy when it comes to this fat +500 price tag.
Stefon Diggs Over 80.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
Let’s try this one again. I bet on Diggs topping a higher yardage mark last week, and he failed me.
I don’t mind going back to the well, though, as Diggs is still an explosive player who can rack up a big chunk of this yardage in one play.
He’s also seen 8+ targets four times during that span. On MNF, he gets to face a bad Titans defense that is dead last in yardage allowed to wide receivers, too.
Everything sets up nicely for Diggs here. He’s been weak in the yardage department so far in 2022, but I don’t think that can last much longer.
My Top MNF Player Prop for Week 6
I like the three Monday Night Football player props detailed above, but I’ve saved the best for last. There are sure to be countless more Bills vs. Titans player props worth betting on, but my number one player prop bet for this game is A.J. Brown to score a touchdown.
There is no denying his 2021 season has been awful. He’s been hurt, and the Titans have struggled to get anything going through the air. While it’s been ugly, Brown is an explosive receiver who scored 19 touchdowns over his first two seasons. There is just no way this drought goes on for much longer.
You can bet on any of my Bills vs. Titans player props individually, or put together a parlay. If you have interest in this game, though, be sure to also check out Dan Vasta’s Bills vs. Titans week 6 pick.
