AFC East rivals the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills face off on Monday Night Football in a game that has serious playoff implications for both sides. It’s not often that these two teams are vying for the division together but that's exactly what's happening in Week 13.

A lot of the attention will be focused on the QB battle between Mac Jones and Josh Allen.

Let’s review the current prop odds for these two and see which side we like on Monday Night with odds courtesy of WynnBET Sportsbook

Mac Jones Passing Yards Total 209.5 (OVER -125/UNDER -115)

The Patriots have the luxury of having one of the best defenses in the league and haven’t needed Jones to pass the lights out. Even still, this total feels low for him despite facing a strong Bills defense. Jones has failed to go over this total in just four games this year. Three of those four games came back to back over the last three weeks so I get that faith has been shaken in Jones. But, he bounced back week last week and threw for 310 yards against the Tennessee Titians.

This being an important divisional matchup, I think Bill Belichick and Co. let Jones loose a bit more than usual and he eclipses this total. 

Josh Allen Passing Yards Total 238.5 (OVER -125/UNDER -115)

This is a much tougher call to make than Jones’ total. On the one hand, Josh Allen has failed to throw for more than 238 yards just twice all season. Once against the Dolphins and once against the Colts. 

But, on the other hand, the Patriots' defense is so good they can shut down anyone. They’ve allowed just 6.0 yards per pass which is third-best in the NFL and they lead the league in interceptions forced. At 218.3 yards allowed, their passing defense ranks third overall. 

This is more of a testament to how good the Patriots' defense is and not a knock on Allen. Worth noting that Allen has only once passed for more than 217 yards against the Patriots and that was the last time these two teams played in Week 16 of last year.
