Sunday Night Football brings us one of the best rivalries in the NFL in primetime. Aaron Rodgers attempts to save the Green Bay Packers' season with their first road win on the year while the Minnesota Vikings look to take another step toward the playoffs behind possibly overpaid QB Kirk Cousins. And if you aren't sure who's going to win a game with a 3-point spread in the home-Vikings' favor, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, then let's take a look at the five best prop gets for tonight's matchup.
4. Stefon Diggs First Touchdown Scorer (+950)

Stefon Diggs has had some monster games lately, catching two touchdown passes in the last three games with almost 250 yards receiving in those contests. Cousins should be looking his way early and often as they've finally clicked, after the Adam Thielen show lasted the first eight weeks of the season. At almost 10-to-1 odds, it's entirely worth a shot here.
3. Davante Adams Second-Half Touchdown Scorer (+290)

Davante Adams is Rodgers' guy. This game should be a close one at least into the second half, meaning the Packers' QB will be looking to his No. 1 receiver. If we get to see some of Rodgers' patented second-half drives, then look for Adams to be his main target and likely snag a second-half touchdown.
2. Kirk Cousins Under 291.5 Passing Yards (-118)

Cousins has only thrown for more than 291 yards once in the last five games. Although he threw for more than 400 yards against the Packers earlier in the season, that was in the midst of him playing much better. He has since cooled off and doesn't seem like the same quarterback recently. This should be a grind-it-out game where Cousins might not have as many opportunities as you would expect. I know it's crazy, but I'll bet he throw for 295 yards in this one.
1. Adam Thielen to Score 2+ Touchdowns (+550)

Thielen has arguably had one of the best years by a wide receiver in years, matching Hall of Famer Randy Moss in for a few Vikings' records. Although he has had a tough last two weeks, Cousins should be able to reestablish this deadly connection tonight. He had 12 catches for 131 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Packers at Lambeau, and should see similar or even more success tonight at home. With more than 5-to-1 odds for two TDs, this is one I'm happily taking my chances on.
