One more time, everybody

For the final time this season. . .in all likelihood. . .it’s time to take a look at some of the best player prop bets from our friends at the DraftKings Sportsbook to see if there’s anything out there that we can do to help you potentially boost your bankroll. I haven’t compiled our record on all of these over the course of the season, but I’d like to think we’ve helped those of you who engage in this sort of activity at least a little bit.

With that, let’s see if we can find three prop bets that can help you out a bit, shall we?

Justin Jefferson, 98.5 receiving yards: Over (-115) or Under (-115)

For all the things you can say about the Vikings turning to Nick Mullens at quarterback, at least he certainly knows where Justin Jefferson is. Jefferson had 141 yards the last time these two teams got together and is currently 118 yards away from eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark for the fourth straight year, despite missing seven games (and most of an eighth). I firmly believe that the Vikings are going to do what they can to get Jefferson over that mark on Sunday, and I think they’ll be successful.

The play: Over

Ty Chandler, 47.5 rushing yards: Over (-120) or Under (-110)

The last time these two teams played, the Vikings completely abandoned the run. I don’t see them doing that this time around, and Chandler is going to be the primary beneficiary of that. Chandler’s also playing for his role on the team next year, and while I think the Vikings will be going with more of a pass-heavy look in this one, I don’t think they’ll ditch the run game to the extent they did the last time.

The play: Over

Harrison Smith, 4.5 combined tackles: Over (-115) or Under (-115)

It’s something we haven’t talked about a whole lot, but there’s a very good chance that this could be Harrison Smith’s last game as a Viking. He’s been one of the best in the league at his position since he was a rookie, and he’s had a long and distinguished career as a member of the Vikings. If this is it for #22, we can go ahead and highlight him here in the hopes that he can go out with a solid performance.

The play: Over

Those are the player prop bets we’re looking at for this week, ladies and gentlemen. Are there any that you’ve got your eye on?
