SNF Props: Jefferson, Thielen Have High O/Us, Can They Both Hit?

  • Justin Jefferson has -114 odds to rack up more than 87.5 receiving yards.
  • Adam Thielen has -114 odds to put up more than 65.5 receiving yards.
  • Jefferson has -286 odds to finish with more receiving yards than Thielen.

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson have formed the backbone of one of the NFL’s elite receiving corps’.

Jefferson has taken on a role as the WR1 most of the time, exceeding Thielen’s receiving yards totals in four of their six games.

The NFL betting markets expect him to continue this trend, as his O/U line for receiving yards is far above Thielen’s.

Justin Jefferson Receiving Yards Odds

  • Over 87.5 -114
  • Under 87.5 -114

Jefferson has played six games this season, and in only two of them has he gone over 87.5 receiving yards. However, he is averaging 90.3 receiving yards per game - it’s just that his production is mildly inconsistent.

His lowest receiving number in a game this season came in Week 2, with 65 yards against the Arizona Cardinals.

The Dallas Cowboys, the Vikings’ opponents on Sunday, are one of the worst passing defenses in the NFL, giving up 295.0 passing yards per game - the fifth-worst in the league.

Adam Thielen Receiving Yards Odds

  • Over 65.5 -114
  • Under 65.5 -114

Thielen will also likely benefit from the woeful Cowboys secondary, and that could be why his O/U is higher than he’s hit in four of his six total games.

His two games above this yardage total came in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals and Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers. Every other game he’s played, however, has seen Thielen end up with 50 or less receiving yards.

Thielen Vs. Jefferson Head To Head Odds

  • Thielen To Have More Rec. Yds +177
  • Jefferson To Have More Rec. Yds -286

The odds for the head to head are heavily in favor of Jefferson, whose O/U is 22 yards higher than Thielen’s in this game.

However, with the Cowboys secondary being as bad as it is, it seems possible that both of them hit their O/U numbers. The Minnesota Vikings take on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football, which will be broadcast on NBC, and kickoff at 8:20 p.m. EST on Sunday.
