Best prop bets for New York Jets vs. Minnesota Vikings
The New York Jets are looking to continue their chase for a postseason berth this week when they head to Minnesota for a tough test against the 9-2 Vikings. Minnesota, who continues to find ways to win, will present the Jets with some challenges but also give the Jets some advantages to exploit.
Let’s take a look at Jets X-Factor’s best prop bets for Jets @ Vikings.
All odds via Caesars Sportsbook
Mike White passing yards: over 247.5 (-111)
The Minnesota Vikings do a lot of things well, but their defense is one of the worst in the league. Minnesota’s defense is giving up 390.7 yards per game which ranked 31st in the NFL. Their passing defense is worse as they are giving up the league’s most passing yards per game at 276.1.
Mike White has shown the ability to accurately deliver the ball and make all the easy completions. Last week, White threw 235 yards in just the first half while the game was still close. He only threw 80 yards in the second half but the game was mostly over at that point. In his three starts where he has played close to a full game, he is averaging 324 passing yards per game.
I also believe playing in a dome this week should help White reach his passing prop total. Being out of the weather and wind will make it easier to throw effectively and give him plenty of chances to gain yardage.
I expect Mike White to have another solid day through the air and hit over 247.5 passing yards.
Elijah Moore anytime touchdown scorer (+275)
Elijah Moore had a breakout game last week in a season that has not gone his way. Moore only had two catches but they went for 64 yards and a touchdown. That was his first touchdown of the year and his most receiving yards in a game so far this season.
I think Moore is due for another touchdown this week, mainly because I did not think he was the problem for his lack of production. In my opinion, he has been getting open but simply has not been getting the ball at some points when he should.
With Mike White starting at quarterback, Moore should be getting the ball on time and when he is supposed to. This should give him chances for yards after the catch like we saw last week against Chicago and around the goal line.
I anticipate Elijah Moore having another strong game this week while finding the endzone.
