The only prop bet missing from tonight's New Orleans Saints-Minnesota Vikings rematch of last year's playoff battle would be the odds on Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs winning the game on a touchdown pass on the last play of the game. Here are the five best prop bets for the "Sunday Night Football" game. 

5. Both Teams to Score in the First Quarter

Odds: -128

Even though when the Vikings defense really shows up to play they can hold the best of offensive opponents to well under their season averages, you have to like a first quarter score from an offensive juggernaut like the Saints. As for the Vikings, the Saints defense has been easy to score against all year and the Vikings offense has been humming lately. 

4. Alvin Kamara to Have 75+ Yards Receiving and the Saints to Win

Odds: +340

Minnesota's defense has been exposed more than once this season, and there's a great chance that if the boys in purple allow 75 or more yards receiving to Kamara, than the Saints will also come out on top.  

3. Kyle Rudolph to have 50+ Receiving Yards and the Vikings to Win

Odds: +340

Similar to this year's Vikings defense, Rudolph hasn't had the same kind of seasons we've become used to seeing. However, the talent is still there, especially with a quarterback like Kirk Cousins under center for Minnesota. Getting 50 yards could be a synch on just three catches if Rudolph plays his cards right. 

2. First Scoring Play: New Orleans Saints Touchdown

Odds: +180 

Between Drew Brees, Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara, how could you not like the Saints' chances of punching the ball in for a touchdown before any other scoring play? Especially when you're looking at a +180 line for any of those three guys to come through for you.

Odds: +600

You have to love seeing Kamara having better odds of scoring two touchdowns in one game than Vikings running back Latavius Murray at +500. Regardless of the opposing defense on the other side of the ball, Kamara heads into every game with a reasonable shot of putting up two scores through the air or on the ground.
