Best Patriots-Vikings Parlay
This same game parlay comes from DraftKings, with the help of OddsShopper. This game is projected to play slowly and each team could lean on its running game. Don’t expect a lot of offensive fireworks in this game, so look to target the under here.
Leg 1: Kirk Cousins Prop: Passing Yards Under 249.5 (-115)
Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins has a narrative around him that he can’t play well in prime time on national TV. His record in prime time games is 10-18. The under for Cousins’ passing yards is interesting because the Patriots rank fourth in yards allowed to opposing passers.
Leg 2: Mac Jones Passing Yards Under 219.5 (+110)
In the six full games Mac Jones has played this season, the Patriots quarterback has been under this passing prop line half the time. He averages 31 pass attempts per game, and the Patriots now have both running backs healthy and can lean on Rhamondre Stevenson and Damien Harris to move the ball. Take the odds here, but can bump up the yards to the next tier.
Leg 3: Total Points Under 42.5 (-105)
This game will play slowly and lack scoring. The public agrees, as 62% of the bets and 84% of the money are on the Under, per Action Network.
