The Minnesota Vikings (6-3) travel to Dallas to take on Dak Prescott and the Cowboys (5-3) in a Week 10 showdown on "Sunday Night Football." Dallas is currently listed as a 3.5-point favorite at home, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

If you're looking to place a few alternative wagers on Sunday night's game, here are four of the best prop bets you can put your money on.

1. Any Time Touchdown Scorer: Ezekiel Elliott (-190)

The Cowboys have leaned heavily on Ezekiel Elliott this season and, at this point, no one should expect them to change the game plan. The two-time Pro Bowl running back has found the end zone at least once in six of Dallas' eight games this season and leads his team in total red zone touches with 41 (39 rush attempts, two receptions).

2. Total Points Odd/Even: Even (+108)

This prop bet is as close to a coin-flip as you can possibly get, but the Vikings and Cowboys have a penchant for finishing their games with even combined point totals, especially when the latter plays host. The Cowboys and Vikings have combined for an even point total in each of the last four games they've played in Dallas.

3. Home Team Total Points: Over 26.5 (-110)

Dallas has scored at least 30 points in three of its four home games and is averaging 31.8 points per game (PPG) at AT&T Stadium this year. The Vikings, meanwhile, have scored 26 or more points in two of their five road games and are averaging 23.0 PPG away from home this year. That should help push the Cowboys to keep pressing on offense.

4. Winning Margin (5-Point Bands): Dallas Cowboys 1 to 5 (+430)

The past three meetings between the Cowboys and Vikings has been decided by four points or fewer with the Cowboys owning a 2-1 advantage during that span. Both teams are run oriented (Vikings: 153.0 rushing yards per game, Cowboys: 149.2 rushing yards per game) and have stingy defenses (Vikings: 320.9 yards allowed per game, Cowboys: 318.1 yards allowed per game). Expect a close game Sunday night.
