- Freezing temps and no Kirk Cousins? The Packers shouldn't be throwing much tonight, giving this Allen Lazard under value.
- With Marquez Valdes-Scantling back in action, this prop is our expert's top pick for Sunday Night Football.

Packers-Vikings Prop Bet
Allen Lazard Under 35.5 Receiving Yards
Lazard played nearly every snap against the Browns last week, running a route on 94% of Aaron Rodgers drop backs. He cashed in with a 2/45/1 receiving line. However — with Marquez Valdes-Scantling returning from a one-game absence — we can expect Lazard to see his routes run dip closer to the 75-80% range as the Packers No. 3 wideout.
For this Week 17 edition of Sunday Night Football against the Vikings, the Packers also may not throw much with freezing temperatures expected at Lambeau and Sean Mannion under center for Minnesota in place of Kirk Cousins. Green Bay should control this game from the beginning and lean heavily on Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon tonight.
I’m projecting Lazard closer to 27.5 receiving yards here and would bet this down to 33.5.

What Are NFL Player Prop Bets?
Bets on a player’s statistics or various outcomes can be considered a player prop. Betting on the over or under on a quarterback’s passing yards, over or under on a wide receiver’s number of receptions, and whether a running back will score a touchdown are all considered player props.
