Which Minnesota Vikings prop bets have the best chance of turning into winners when the team takes on the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday?

In their first game since Week 6, the Minnesota Vikings will host the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday for a Week 8 matchup inside U.S. Bank Stadium.

So far this season, the Vikings haven’t lost a game in their home building. Will this continue to be true against the Cardinals this weekend, or will Minnesota stumble after returning from their bye?

As for the best Vikings-related prop bets to place before Sunday’s contest, we’ve got a few for you that could result in a lucrative outcome.

Best Minnesota Vikings prop bets for Week 8 vs. the Arizona Cardinals

Kirk Cousins Prop Bet:

  • OVER 0.5 interceptions (+135)

During his last time on the field, Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins was able to play turnover-free football. But on Sunday, Cousins will be going up against an Arizona defense that has forced seven turnovers in their last four games, and five of these takeaways were interceptions.

So given that Cousins has been taking more chances with his throws this season in the Vikings’ new offense, there seems to be a good chance that at least one of his passes this weekend will end up in the hands of a Cardinals defender.

Dalvin Cook Prop Bet:

  • OVER 17.5 yards gained on longest rush (+110)

Against the Miami Dolphins in Week 6, we finally saw Minnesota running back Dalvin Cook break a long run for the first time this year. Now that we know Cook is still capable of breaking away from a defense, he should be able to rack up some more big plays on Sunday against Arizona.

In their last three games, the Cardinals’ defense has allowed their opponent to rush for at least 17 yards on a single play six different times. Cook is capable of a big gain almost any time he gets the football in his hands, so it seems safe to believe that he can have at least one rushing attempt that results in a gain of 17.5 yards or more this weekend.

Greg Joseph Prop Bet:

  • OVER 7.5 kicking points (+100)

Attempting field goals inside U.S. Bank Stadium hasn’t exactly been a strength of Vikings kicker Greg Joseph this year. Joseph hasn’t converted a field goal inside Minnesota’s home stadium since Week 1, as he’s missed each of his last four attempts in the building.

With a week off to get some of the kinks out though, Joseph could perform much better on Sunday, especially since he’ll be facing an Arizona team that apparently brings out the best in opposing kickers this season.

In five of the Cardinals’ last six games this year, opposing kickers have finished with at least eight points. Will the same happen for Joseph on Sunday?
