See our favorite best prop bets below

The Dallas Cowboys (5-1) head to Minneapolis, Minnesota to take on the Minnesota Vikings (3-3) in front of everyone on Sunday night. Kickoff from US Bank Stadium is scheduled for 8:20pm ET on NBC. Unlike last week, weather will not be a factor as this one will be played indoors.

The Cowboys played a wild one last time they were in action beating the New England Patriots 35-29 in overtime. Dak Prescott threw for 445 yards in the effort as the Cowboys offense was just too much for New England. The Vikings are also coming off a bye as they took out the Carolina Panthers 34-28 in their last action.

The Cowboys are slim 1.5-point favorites at the time of writing but are likely to move closer to -3 by the time of kickoff. The total is the highest of the slate at 55 so fireworks are expected.  As always, there are plenty of player props to consider.

Dak Prescott is a game-time decision which will has affected the number of props available for this game. We likely will not see many props for the Cowboys’ offensive players until a couple hours before the game.

Justin Jefferson Is Special

There were five wide receivers taken in front of Justin Jefferson in the 2020 NFL Draft. Now that we have hindsight, it’s pretty hard for most fans to say that was too low for him. Jefferson knew it then and he’s not afraid now to tell anyone who might not know.

“I definitely didn’t feel like the other WRs were better than me”

Only five wide receivers in the NFL are averaging more receiving yards per game than Justin Jefferson. He is just as unstoppable now as he was last season. He’s the Vikings’ top option at the position and he’s putting distance between himself and Adam Thielen seemingly every week.

With his status as top receiving threat for the Vikings comes added attention. We can expect Jefferson to see a lot of the Cowboys’ standout cover man, Trevon Diggs, so that does present an issue. Still, there is a way to move on Jefferson without taking an elevated reception or receiving yards number.

Personally, I like Jefferson to go over 26.5 yards for his longest reception. He’s gone over this number in four of six games this season and in one that he fell short he had a 26-yard grab. So far this season, only seven teams have given up more 20+ yard receptions than the Dallas Cowboys. Jefferson could easily get loose on one.

The Pick: Justin Jefferson Over 26.5 longest reception (-110) – Wager 1.1 units to win 1 unit

Who Scores?

One thing that goes great with Sunday Night Football is touchdown scorer props. They’re like peanut better and jelly. Honestly, they’re both great on their own but together, they are unstoppable.

This week, we’ve got a familiar face who has spent his fair share of time in the end zone.

Ezekiel Elliott has scored a touchdown in every game this season except two. One was against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers so it doesn’t even count because we would never bet him to score against them. With Dak Prescott possibly being limited and the Vikings’ defense being third worst in the NFL in terms of opponents yards per rush, it feels like a good week to back Zeke.

Pick: Ezekiel Elliott – Anytime Touchdown Scorer (-135): Wager .135 unit to win 0.1 unit
2021 Touchdown Scorer prop record: 11-14, +0.16 units
