SNF Week 17 Prop Bets | Vikings vs Packers Props for Total TDs, Packers Team Total, & More

Sunday Night Football in Week 17 features a classic matchup between two NFC North rivals, the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers. Green Bay leads the NFL with a 12-3 record behind spectacular seasons from the ageless Aaron Rodgers and his favorite target, Davante Adams.

Minnesota is 7-8 and has a very slim chance to make the playoffs, needing to win out and receive help from other teams to steal a Wild Card spot.

The dream isn’t over for the Vikings yet, so expect Dalvin Cook and Justin Jefferson to get all the work they can handle to try and pull off an upset at Lambeau Field. The Vikings will be without Adam Thielen who will miss the rest of the season after ankle surgery.

This is do or die time for the Vikings, while the Packers need to win to continue to cement their case for the #1 seed in the conference.

Let’s take an in-depth look at how this important late season battle will play out.

Please note that all NFL gameday odds and lines are current as of 1:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, December 29.

Vikings vs Packers Prop Bets: NFL Week 17 SNF Prop Betting Picks

Packers Over 26.5 Points (-133) at FoxBet

Wager: 1.5 Units

It doesn’t really matter who’s on the field on offense for Green Bay so long as Rodgers is taking the snap and Adams runs a route. A puzzling Week 1 loss to the Saints raised questions on whether the team’s “chemistry” was off after the rollercoaster offseason surrounding the team’s two playmaking superstars.

Those questions have been answered. Green Bay is just fine. The offense is averaging 33.4 points per game over their last five contests and firing on all cylinders.

Adams is second in the league in catches and third in receiving yards, trailing Jefferson by 89 yards. What was once a backfield that belonged to Aaron Jones is now a powerful tandem, due to the emergence of AJ Dillon. All is well for the Packers offense.

Not to be forgotten, five-time All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari is listed questionable for this weekend’s game. He tore his ACL on New Year’s Eve a year ago and hasn’t had the smoothest recovery process, but a potential return to protecting Rodgers’ blind side would be icing on the cake.

Minnesota has a glaring weakness in their pass defense, allowing the sixth most passing yards this year. Last time out against Green Bay, Rodgers tore them up for 385 passing yards and 4 TDs,

In that game, Green Bay scored 31 points and lost. Few players take the game as personally as Rodgers does. I expect Green Bay to come out firing and put up a big number on the scoreboard while ending their division rival’s playoff dreams.

2nd Half Total Points Over 23.5 Points (-106) at TwinSpires

Wager: 1.25 Units

The Packers aren’t the only high-powered offense in this game. Both the Vikings and Packers rank in the top half of the league in scoring. Their Week 11 final tally of 65 total points is a testament to the shootout potential these two teams hold.

Minnesota has struggled to stay healthy this year, but head into Green Bay near full strength. Dalvin Cook has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list although the loss of Thielen hurts.

Kirk Cousins has once again been rock-solid this season. Green Bay’s defense poses a tough matchup for any team, but Minnesota has the tools to keep up. I think both teams score multiple touchdowns in the second half while the Vikings play from behind and the Packers hold their lead.

Total Touchdowns Over 5.5 (-103) at TwinSpires

Wager: 1 Unit

Minnesota has been fairly conservative with fourth-down play calling this season, as their 18 attempts on fourth down rank in the bottom half of the league. This is not the game to settle for punts and field goals.

Minnesota must win to survive. Green Bay shouldn’t have trouble finding the end zone. Head coach Mike Zimmer should be doing everything he can to win this game, as he is squarely on the hot seat due to the Vikings’ lack of playoff success during his tenure.

An added factor that could deter both teams from kicking is this weekend’s forecast in Green Bay. With a projected high of four degrees and winds above 10 mph, kicking conditions will be far from ideal.

Both teams should opt to keep their guys hot on offense, feeding their superstar skill position players to put six on the scoreboard.

Packers Money Line and Over 46.5 Total Points (+145) at FoxBet

Wager: 0.75 Units

It makes sense to tack on this parlay in what I expect to be a high scoring game where the Packers come out on top.

In 2020, the Packers and Vikings split their season series. Both games had a final total of 50 or more points between the two teams. Look for this trend to continue, Minnesota puts up a fight but ultimately says farewell to their playoff hopes on Sunday night.

NFL Betting News

  • Early money slightly leaning towards the over in the 49ers-Rams matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting good two-way action on the over/under for the NFC Championship Game matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 46 points has attracted 55% of the bets and 60% of the money thus far. Much moreso than the AFC Championship Game, the betting splits on the point spread and total in this game are much more evenly split, so the sportsbook does not have too much liability on either at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Los Angeles's -170 moneyline odds have attracted 60% of the bets and 70% of the money.

  • Early bettors give slight lean to the Rams over the 49ers

    Based on the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook, the favored Los Angeles Rams are getting slightly more betting attention in their matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Los Angeles's -3.5 point spread has received 65% of the bets and 61% of the handle thus far. Bettors are clearly torn in this matchup considering the Rams have arguably been playing better football through the first two playoff games, while the 49ers have won six consecutive games against the Rams, including a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory in Los Angeles.

  • Early money more than 4/1 on the over in the Bengals-Chiefs matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's over/under in the matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 54.5 points has attracted 75% of the bets and 85% of the money thus far. At this point, the sportsbook has big liability to the Chiefs point spread and the over in this matchup, as their most ideal scenario would be a Bengals cover in a low-scoring game at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Kansas City's -335 moneyline odds have attracted 58% of the bets and 61% of the money.

    CIN vs. KC Game Page

  • Early money 3/1 on the Chiefs over the Bengals

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs, as the majority of the action is backing the favored Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Kansas City's -7 point spread has received 61% of the bets and 76% of the handle thus far. Cincinnati is shaping up to be the biggest need of any side or any total this weekend, as the public seems to be enamored with the Chiefs after their thrilling Divisional Round win over Buffalo.

  • 49ers-Rams over/under reaches lowest number of the week

    After another line movement, the over/under for the NFC Championship matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams has reached its lowest total of the week.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the 49ers-Rams over/under on Sunday night was posted at 47.5 points. It was quickly bet down to 46.5 in less than 24 hours. However, it has once again moved toward the under, and now currently sits at 46 points. Given that there has not yet been buyback on the over, it is extremely unlikely we see the total get back to anywhere close to the 47.5 points it opened at.
