For the fifth game this season, the Seahawks (-6, 49) take center stage in prime time - their latest matchup against an Eagles team that needs a win Monday to keep pace in the tight NFC East race.

Here are our favorite trends, props, and bets for Monday night.

Betting trends

As we mentioned before, the Seahawks are playing in prime time for the fifth time this year. They're 2-2 against the spread in those previous four games, though they're a stellar 22-11-3 ATS under the lights since drafting Russell Wilson in 2012.

With Wilson under center, Seattle is 15-5-2 ATS as prime-time favorites, the best record in the NFL among teams with 10 such games played since 2012. The Seahawks are also 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games as favorites, including 10-2 ATS when favored by six points or less.

Seemingly every team has found success against the NFC East in recent years, but no club owns the division like Seattle. Since 2011, it's an NFL-best 17-4-1 ATS against the NFC East and a perfect 6-0 ATS against the Eagles, with all six victories coming by at least eight points.

Can Philadelphia reverse that trend here? It's not the best spot to do so. The Eagles are 2-6 ATS in their previous eight when catching six or fewer points as 'dogs. They're also 1-7 ATS after their last eight losses, which doesn't bode well after last week's loss to the Browns.

Player props

Miles Sanders over 17.5 receiving yards (-110)

Sanders has been in and out of the lineup this year, but he's been a featured member of the Eagles offense when he's in the game. He's rushed for 83.6 yards per game in seven contests and was targeted five times apiece in Philly's last two contests, though he only totaled 25 receiving yards across those 10 targets.

Expect him to bump up those totals against the Seahawks, who entered Sunday allowing the fourth-fewest rushing yards to opposing running backs (67.3 per game) but the fourth-most receiving yards (49.7) in 10 games. Sanders was stellar as a receiver a year ago and should see an increased role in the passing game Monday, too.

Tyler Lockett under 72.5 receiving yards (-110)

For all of the things that have gone wrong in Philadelphia, the team's pass defense is a bright spot after its struggles a year ago. The Eagles are allowing 209.3 passing yards per game, sixth-fewest in the NFL, and they've allowed the fifth-fewest yards per game to opposing receivers (147.1).

If they can hold that pace Monday, it likely won't leave enough of a share for Lockett, who's already gone three straight games under 70 yards receiving. In fact, he's fallen below that mark in seven of 10 games this year, with three big performances buoying his season average. Expect him to fall short again here.

Best bet

Under 49

I know, I know - betting the under on a Seahawks game was once as taboo as betting against them in prime time. But they've gone under in two straight as teams force Wilson into mental mistakes, while the Eagles are riding four consecutive unders against subpar defenses. Neither offense will gain enough traction to blow this one open.
