The Minnesota Vikings will host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night in Week 17. This will be the second meeting between these two teams this season, with the first coming in Week 8 and ending 24-10 in favor of the Vikings. Minnesota will be going with Jaren Hall under center while benching Nick Mullens, and Green Bay looks to build on the 33-30 win over the Carolina Panthers from last week.

Here are our favorite player prop bets for Sunday Night Football in Week 17. All odds come courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Packers vs. Vikings player prop bets

K.J. Osborn — Over 2.5 receptions (-120)

Someone is going to have to step up with tight end T.J. Hockenson sidelined for the rest of the season. My guess is that Osborn gets more looks no matter who is under center. Last week, he was targeted seven times and brought in five of them for 95 yards and a touchdown.

Ty Chandler — Under 14.5 rushing attempts (+100)

Chandler and Alexander Mattison split backfield work last week against the Detroit Lions. Chandler had eight carries, while Mattison only had two. Quarterback Nick Mullens threw the ball 36 times, but even if Minnesota shakes up its gameplan with Hall under center, I don’t see Chandler nearly doubling his rushing attempts from last week.

Justin Jefferson — Over 81.5 receiving yards (-115)

Jefferson put the team on his back last week. He led the Vikings in receiving yards, coming down with six of his 10 targets for 141 yards and a touchdown. Green Bay corner Jaire Alexander is suspended by the team for this game after last week’s confusion with the coin toss. Taking the over on this prop is risky with Hall under center, but Jefferson is going to have an advantageous matchup no matter who draws the short straw and has to try and cover him and it should help him surpass this total.
