Vikings vs. 49ers
Kirk Cousins, Under 243.5 passing yards (-115)
Kirk Cousins will be facing the #3 ranked defense in the NFL without his one superstar on offense, Justin Jefferson, who is on injured reserve. This one seems inevitable. Give me the under for Kirk Cousins and 243.5 passing yards.
Brock Purdy, Over 243.5 passing yards (-115)
Brock Purdy has been gradually transitioning from game manager to franchise quarterback. Purdy passed for 250+ yards in three straight games before the Cleveland Browns brought that streak to a halt last week. The Minnesota Vikings defense won’t present nearly the same challenge. I’ll take the over for Brock Purdy and 243.5 passing yards.
Christian McCaffrey, Over 63.5 rushing yards (-115)
I expect the 49ers to dominate the Vikings with Justin Jefferson on the sidelines. The positive game script should give McCaffrey plenty of carries. Give me the over for Christian McCaffrey and 63.5 rushing yards.
Jordan Addison, Over 49.5 receiving yards (-115)
With Justin Jefferson out rookie Jordan Addison is the Vikings’ top wide receiver. Addison has gone over 50 yards in four out of six games. His volume of targets should increase considerably tonight. Give me the over for Jordan Addison and 49.5 receiving yards.
