Thursday Night Football: Mims breaks down his keys to Redskins vs Vikings and shares his favorite Kirk Cousins prop bet

Robert Mims

These are my keys to the game tonight between Minnesota and Washington:

Vikings are 5-2. Skins are 1-6.

The Skins are coming off a shutout loss to the Niners.

Vikings won a divisional game in a high scoring contest against the Lions.

Vikings are the favorite at -16.5.

The over/under total is 41.5.

The money line is Vikings -1200 and Skins +800.

The Vikings are the home team.

There are many story lines about this game. Kirk Cousins starting at quarterback against his former team. Case Keenum in a similar position. Both will want to prove the teams that they left should have committed to them. Adrian Peterson was the dominate runner in the NFL for more than a decade while with Minnesota.

The prop bet that looks appealing is Cousins over 245 in passing yardage. The price at -112.

The QB match up of Keenum against Cousins should get attention. Cousins should win. He is minus 148 while Keenum is +120. Cousins has gone over 300 yards in his last two games.

I have a lean toward the Vikings to win this game. My play would be to lay the points.

I am 9-4 in my selections on NFL Monday and Thursday. Follow me on Twitter. Use the #GTLivechat and I will follow you back. Share your thoughts about tonight’s game.
