The Minnesota Vikings will be meeting up with the Detroit Lions this weekend to wrap up their regular-season series. Minnesota came away with the win in the previous contest and they are looking to repeat those efforts.
There are a few exciting prop options for those who bet online to pay attention to in this game. We’ve sifted through the NFL betting odds to find the three best ones on the board for this NFC North showdown.
Odds: Vikings vs Lions Props
- Justin Jefferson Total Receiving Yards, O/U 93.5
- Jared Goff Total Passing Yards, O/U 265.5
- Amon-Ra St. Brown Total Receiving Yards, O/U 81.5
Justin Jefferson Total Receiving Yards, O/U 93.5
Justin Jefferson is not just the best wide receiver on the Minnesota Vikings, he might be the best in the league right now. Jefferson has surpassed the 93.5 receiving yards mark in eight out of his 12 total games played this season.
He’s also averaging 106.4 receiving yards per game. He’s been the top dog in this offense every single week and they are not nearly as productive without him available.
To make this prop even more enticing in the sportsbook, the Lions are the 27th-ranked passing defense this season. It’s going to be difficult for anybody in Detroit to match Jefferson throughout an entire game.
- Picks: Over 93.5 (-115)

Jared Goff Total Passing Yards, O/U 274.5
The Lions are starting to win games more consistently and Jared Goff has been efficient enough to get the job done. He’s given a pretty substantial 274.5-yard mark for this upcoming date with the Vikings and that might be a little too ambitious.
He’s been able to exceed this passing yard mark in four games. However, it is worth noting that the Vikings are statistically one of the worst passing defenses that the league has to offer.
They are allowing 283.6 yards per game through the air, which is the worst total in the league. Goff isn’t the most explosive passer, which still makes surpassing this prop a little difficult. Though it’s not entirely out of the park that he can pull it off.
- Picks: Under 274.5 (-110)
Amon-Ra St. Brown Total Receiving Yards, O/U 83.5
He’s missed a game this season but Amon-Ra St. Brown has been emerging as a genuine superstar for the Lions.
There could be some competition for targets if rookie Jameson Williams can play more snaps, but that doesn’t seem like a problem that’ll be coming around this weekend.
On top of St. Brown having the freedom of a top-tier wideout, he’s going against the worst-ranked Vikings passing defense as well.
He’s been averaging 75.5 receiving yards per game but has only been able to surpass 83.5 yards in four games, but three of those have come in the last four contests.
He’s trending up, so go over with your NFL picks.
- Picks: Over 83.5 (-115)
