Minnesota at Denver: Picks for Underdog Fantasy
Week 11’s iteration of Sunday Night Football should provide some fireworks. The surging Minnesota Vikings are taking on the Denver Broncos, who are on a hot streak of their own.
Both teams are still well within the playoff hunt, and at this time of the year, every single game matters. We’re expecting both teams to come out firing, projecting a high-scoring affair that will leave fans excited and happy they stayed up late to watch the game.
With that being said, we’ve studied the board trying to identify our favorite player props for this highly anticipated contest. Here are our three favorite plays which can all be found on Underdog!
Josh Dobbs OVER 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (1.25X Odds Boost!)
This is by far our favorite play of the evening. Dobbs has been a breath of fresh air for the Vikings’ offense, proving himself worthy as a Kirk Cousins replacement.
He has thrown for three touchdowns over the last two weeks in limited time to prepare for these matchups. With an opportunity to gameplan for the Broncos, and a likely return of Justin Jefferson, we’re confident in Dobbs’ ability to throw two touchdown passes.
We’re hoping he hits this line by halftime to make this an easy cash!
Greg Joseph OVER 2 XP Made
This play goes hand-in-hand with our prediction for Dobbs. Because we’re expecting this to be a high-scoring affair, it’s only right for us to take this play.
Greg Joseph has hit extra points at a 92% clip on the year, making it count when it matters most. If Dobbs throws 2 touchdown passes, and another touchdown is scored in this one, Joseph should hit this over with ease.
Will Lutz OVER 1.5 Made Field Goals
Russell Wilson has made a lot of improvements over the past several weeks. He has looked more confident as a passer for the first time in Denver, bringing their offense to greater heights as of late.
However, the Vikings have a strong defense. We’re projecting Wilson to be able to bring them into Vikings territory, but falling a bit short of the goal line.
That’s where Lutz comes in. When the offense falls flat, Lutz should pick them up with field goals given his hit rate of nearly 90% on the year.
