Giving Props: Best player bets for the Vikings against Las Vegas

Let’s see if we can’t pad everyone’s bankroll

As we do every week that the Minnesota Vikings play, we’re going to take a look at some of the player prop bets that are being offered by the folks from the DraftKings Sportsbook and see if we can find a few that you can use to potentially help you pad your bankroll for the season. Some weeks we do alright, and some weeks not so much, but we’re going to keep trying to help you out anyway.

Here are the ones we have our eye on for this week.

Justin Jefferson, 74.5 receiving yards: Over (-115) or Under (-115)

Jefferson will be back on the field for the Vikings for the first time since he injured his hamstring against Kansas City in Week 5. As we learned in our Five Good Questions segment for this week, the Raiders are a bit of a mess at the cornerback position and that can only spell good things for the reigning Offensive Player of the Year. The development of Jordan Addison should help take some of the heat off of Jefferson as well. This one should, hopefully, be an easy one.

The play: Over

Joshua Dobbs, 31.5 pass attempts: Over (-125) or Under (-105)

Dobbs has had a rough couple of weeks for the Vikings, having turned the ball over six times in the last two weeks. Still, the most likely path for success for the Vikings is going to come through the air, given the Raiders’ corner situation that we’ve already mentioned and the fact that the Vikings’ run game has not been very good this season. This one could go either way, but I think the Vikings are going to lean on their passing game in this one.

The play: Over

Danielle Hunter, 0.75 sacks: Over (-135) or Under (+105)

Hunter is still among the league leaders in sacks and should be more involved in the conversation for Defensive Player of the Year than he currently is. The Raiders will be without starting left tackle Kolton Miller in this one, and that’s not a position that teams want to find themselves in against anybody, let alone against a player like Hunter. Between that, Brian Flores’ scheme, and the Raiders starting a rookie quarterback, things appear to be lining up for Hunter to have a big game on Sunday.

The play: Over

Those are the bets we’ve got our eyes on for this Sunday, folks. Are there any in particular that you’re taking a look at?
