Consensus Pick of the Game
Vikings -3 (-110)
At 63%. there isn’t truly a clear cut consensus here. Leaning with the Vikings makes sense, as they are at home and really are the better team on paper.
The Vikings were led this season by Kirk Cousins and Justin Jefferson, as Jefferson established himself as the best wide receiver in the NFL with 128 catches, 1,809 Yards and 8 touchdowns.
The Giants will have the task of stopping this Vikings offense on the road on Sunday and with their surging pass rush, they have the recipe to hurry Kirk Cousins and make life difficult for the Vikings offense.
If QB Daniel Jones and RB Saquon Barkley can take advantage on offense for the Giants, this game will definitely stay close, with it possibly coming down to the last possession or even the last kick of the game.
I love the Giants to cover the spread in this one, and are one of my favorite underdogs to grab a win on the road and the 1st round upset.
My Best Bet
Giants +3 (-110)
Player Prop of the Game
TJ Hockenson o4.5 Receptions (-125)
Hockenson has a great matchup against the Giants and exploited that matchup in Week 16.
He had a whopping 13 catches in that game and went for 109 yards.
The Giants are going to be hyper focused on stopping Justin Jefferson which will open up a lot of space and opportunity for Hockenson to feast across the middle and underneath.
Kirk Cousins will be harassed by the Giants pass rush and will have to take check downs and underneath throws, giving Hockenson plenty of chances.
Ok that’s it! Enjoy Wild Card Weekend…it should be a good one 🙂
