The NFL's Week 13 slate kicks off with a Thursday Night Football clash between the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints.

Here's three of the best prop bets for this TNF showdown, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Cowboys vs Saints TNF Prop Bets Tonight

1. Taysom Hill - Passing Yards: Under 211.5 (-110)

After battling for the Saints No. 1 QB job during the offseason, Taysom Hill draws his first quarterback start of the season on Thursday. While Hill did hit the over on this prop in three of his four starts under center in 2020, he doesn't have the luxury of having Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara to throw to this week. The Saints have also been held to 211 or fewer passing yards six times this season and things won't magically get better with Hill starting. The Cowboys will be desperate to send a message following a two-game losing streak, which could spell trouble for the veteran gadget player.

2. CeeDee Lamb - Receiving Yards: Over 61.5 (-110)

CeeDee Lamb makes his return following a one-week absence and he has a pretty juicy matchup against the Saints. New Orleans has given up 333.0 passing yards per game at home, which is the highest average in the NFL by 45 yards. Amari Cooper will be at less than 100% following his battle with COVID-19, which means Dallas could lean on the second-year wideout more than usual. He's averaging 7.8 targets over his last five games, so anything extra on Thursday is the icing on top.

3. Mark Ingram - Receiving Yards: Over 21.5 (-110)

Mark Ingram is New Orleans' starting running back once again with Alvin Kamara (knee) sitting this game out. Ingram has looked solid as a pass-catcher during the last two games, catching 10 balls on 15 targets for 86 yards. The Cowboys are allowing 36.5 receiving yards to running backs this season, so hitting the over on this prop is certainly doable.
