Monday Night Football Betting Lines: New Orleans Saints Player Props
September 20th, 2010-  By Bryan Cross

The New Orleans Saints and the San Francisco 49ers tangle in Week two of the 2010 NFL Season on Monday Night Football.  The defending Super Bowl Champion Saints got a Week-one win over Minnesota and come in 1-0, while the 49ers were upset and blown out by Seattle to start the season off 0-1.

San Francisco gets New Orleans at home however, and 49er head coach Mike Singletary has pledged a better effort on both sides of the ball, after an inept performance last week.

USA Online Sportsbooks and NFL Betting Lines have installed the Saints as the betting favorite on the road this week to come into San Francisco and get a win.  Additionally however, oddmakers have formulated betting lines and prop bets for the players in the game on both side of the ball.  These prop bets give bettors the opportunity to generate action on outcomes not necessarily related to the direct result of the game, but provide a fun and exciting way to become more involved in this Monday night contest.

Both teams have player makers on either side of the ball, each with the opportunity to change the course of the game tonight.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees leads the Saints offense, after struggling slightly last week against a tough Minnesota defense.  This week, oddsmakers have set several prop bets relating to Brees’ performance against the 49ers.
