Giants vs. Vikings Most Popular NFL Player Prop Bets

  1. Saquon Barkley to score an anytime touchdown (-120)
  2. Justin Jefferson to score an anytime touchdown (+115)
  3. Justin Jefferson to record over 95.5 receiving yards (-115)

*Odds and data are according to PointsBet as of Saturday afternoon.

Out of these odds, Saquon Barkley to score a touchdown is by far the best line.

Barkley's fair value odds are -160, or 61.5% implied odds. Meanwhile, the price at PointsBet is -120. That's a roughly 7% betting edge on Barkley to get into the end zone against the Vikings — like he did when they faced off on Christmas Eve.

A 7% betting edge implies that you're receiving a 7% discount on that line relative to its fair price.

There isn't much value on Justin Jefferson's most popular prop bets — he's too overvalued by the market and the public.

His fair value line is +122 while PointsBet prices its line at +115. That means you're paying a 1.5% premium. Make sure to always line shop to see if that market price ever exceeds +122, though.

And Jefferson's receiving yard prop should be closer to 83 yards, according to Giffen. At over 95.5 receiving yards, you're losing a substantial amount of value.
