Giants vs. Vikings Props: 5 To Consider For NFL Wild Card Weekend

Written By Evan Scrimshaw on January 15, 2023

NFL Wild Card odds on Sunday afternoon feature the New York Giants heading into Minneapolis for a duel with the Minnesota Vikings. With the Giants coming into this game looking for revenge after a Week 16 loss, and Minnesota setting a single-season record for one-score wins, this game will be a fascinating match. A run-heavy team in New York and Minnesota being much more effective throwing the ball adds to the intrigue around Giants vs. Vikings props.

Prop Strategy

With the Giants as three-point underdogs, it’s not likely that either team will be substantially ahead or behind, meaning this game may be played in a neutral script throughout.

The Giants are 25th in yards per pass attempt this season and fifth in yards per rush. Minnesota, on the other hand, is 10th in yards per pass and 26th in yards per rush.

With the Giants having two main rushers – Saquon Barkley and Daniel Jones – their rushing touchdowns are a bit more spread out than usual. With 10 Rushing TDs for Barkley and seven for Jones, anytime TD props are more risky than usual, especially on Barkley.

Potential Giants vs. Vikings Props To Target

Saquon Barkley Rushing Yards

Best available odds: Over/Under /

Saquon has only gone over this number two times in his last seven weeks. In part because of the spread in rushing, Saquon hasn’t gotten 20 rush attempts in any of those seven games, and only has 15 in three of those. If the Giants fall behind, he’s susceptible to be written out of the script, and even in positive game scripts like Week 17, he couldn’t break 60.

Daniel Jones Rushing Yards

Best available odds: Over/Under /

Another inflated number, Jones has only gone over it three of the last nine games. Jones scrambling is a valuable part of the Giants offense, but against PFF’s 2nd-overall rush defense, it’s too high a number for someone whose rushing attempts can vary from double digits to three in any given game.

KJ Osborn Receiving Yards

Best available odds: Over/Under /

In the last five weeks, Osborn is eighth in the NFL in receptions and seventh in yards, and has gone over this number three of five weeks. With an average of six receptions per game in this stretch and two 100+ yard games, Osborn could be a big beneficiary if the Giants decide to blanket Justin Jefferson with top CB Adoree Jackson now healthy. Jefferson blitzed Big Blue in Week 16.

Justin Jefferson Receiving Yards

Best available odds: Over/Under /

Jefferson has been a player with two very different types of games this season. In the last 8 games, Jefferson has had 4 games of 120+ receiving yards, and 4 games with less than 50 yards. Depending on how teams are playing Jefferson, he is either an incredible performer or functionally non-existent. The last time his total yardage was within 30 yards of this total was Week 9 – it’s consistently either much more or much less.

Richie James Receiving Yards

Best available odds: Over/Under /

James has gotten over this number three of the last four games, and in those four games, he’s averaging eight targets a game. With that in mind, and with a chance that the Giants may have to pass more than usual, James may be a less flashy, but more interesting, option in this game.

Best of luck with Giants vs. Vikings props.
