Which prop bets have the best chance of hitting when the Minnesota Vikings take on the Philadelphia Eagles in a Week 2 matchup on Monday night?
Week 2 of the NFL schedule has already featured a number of insanely entertaining games. Will the Monday night matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia be full of excitement as well?
Excitement or not, the Vikings will be attempting to beat the Eagles on Monday and start a season with a 2-0 record for the first time since 2016.
With a projected over/under point total of 50.5 points for this week’s game between Minnesota and Philadelphia, there should be a lot of opportunities for people to make a few bucks if people are looking to place some bets on the contest. When it comes to some of the player props, which ones could result in the best outcome?
Best Minnesota Vikings prop bets for Week 2 vs. the Philadelphia Eagles
Kirk Cousins Prop Bet:
- OVER 280.5 passing yards (-114)
For whatever reason, playing in Philadelphia always seems to bring out the best in Kirk Cousins. In three of his last road matchups against the Eagles, Cousins has thrown for at least 300 yards. He’s also thrown for more than 300 yards in each of his last three meetings with Philadelphia, so this seems like a great prop to put some money on.
Dalvin Cook Prop Bet:
- OVER 71.5 rushing yards (-114)
Dalvin Cook quietly had 90 rushing yards during Minnesota’s win over the Green Bay Packers last weekend. On Monday, Cook will get to go against an Eagles defense that allowed 6.5 yards per carry to the Detroit Lions in Week 1.
If the Vikings’ top running back doesn’t end up with more than 100 rushing yards on Monday night, it will be pretty shocking.
K.J. Osborn Prop Bet:
- Any time touchdown scorer (+360)
If anyone is looking to take a long shot on a player prop this week, K.J. Osborn finding the end zone against the Eagles might be the one to go with.
Dating back to last season, Osborn has touchdown catches in five of his last seven games, and of the seven touchdown receptions he had in 2021, four of them came on the road. If it hits, a wager on Minnesota’s No. 3 receiver finding the end zone could result in a wonderful reward.
