3 best prop bets for Minnesota Vikings vs. Miami Dolphins in Week 6
By Adam Patrick
What are some of the best Minnesota Vikings prop bets that could hit when they travel to take on the Miami Dolphins for a Week 6 matchup on Sunday?
Winners of three straight, the Minnesota Vikings will look to improve their 2022 record to 5-1 when they head to south Florida to take on the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
The Dolphins have lost their last two games, and they are expected to be starting a rookie quarterback against the Vikings, but that doesn’t mean they’re just going to be an easy win. Miami has plenty of firepower to get a victory on Sunday, and Minnesota still needs to be at their best in order to get a win.
When it comes to betting on Sunday’s matchup though, what are some of the best Vikings-related prop bets that have a good chance of hitting?
Best Minnesota Vikings prop bets for Week 6 vs. the Miami Dolphins
Kirk Cousins Prop Bet:
- OVER 23.5 completions (+100)
Let’s just keep this real simple. Kirk Cousins has finished with more than 23.5 completions in each of Minnesota’s last four games. Why would Cousins suddenly have fewer completions against a Dolphins defense that is 28th in passing yards allowed this season?
Dalvin Cook Prop Bet:
- UNDER 76.5 rushing yards (-115)
While Dalvin Cook is heading home to Miami for this matchup and he’ll have a lot of fans in the stands, he’ll be going up against a very tough Dolphins run defense.
Miami has only allowed one running back to gain more than 65 yards on the ground in their five games this season. As talented as Cook is, let’s not bet on him gashing the Dolphins on the ground on Sunday.
Adam Thielen Prop Bet:
- Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+160)
After hauling in a total of 24 touchdown catches in 2020 and 2021, Adam Thielen only has one trip to the end zone in five games this season. Thielen isn’t going to get many more matchups this year as favorable as Sunday against Miami, so betting on him scoring a touchdown against the Dolphins seems like a good decision to make.
