MINNEAPOLIS - The New England Patriots and the Minnesota Vikings face off on Thanksgiving, and there’s more to the receivers involved in this matchup than just Justin Jefferson.
Jakobi Meyers (NE) Receiving Yards Odds
- Over(51.5) -115
- Under(51.5) -113
Jakobi Meyers only has two games with less than 51.5 receiving yards this season, although he did miss weeks three and four.
The Patriots are not a WR-centric team, and the online gambling sites know it. Both Hunter Henry at the TE slot and Rhamondre Stevenson at the RB spot take up significant target share.
Rhamondre Stevenson (NE) Receiving Yards Odds
- Over(28.5) -114
- Under(28.5) -114
Stevenson has had more than five receptions in three of his last four games, and five or more targets in his last five games.
Hunter Henry (NE) Receiving Yards Odds
- Over(22.5) -113
- Under(22.5) -115
Henry has only gone over 22.5 receiving yards in one of his last four games, and three games total on the season.
Justin Jefferson (MIN) Receiving Yards Odds
- Over(87.5) -114
- Under(87.5) -114
Justin Jefferson is the main man in Minnesota, although he’s coming off of one of his worst games of the season, racking up only 33 yards against the Dallas Cowboys last week.
That game is one of only three in which Jefferson put up less than 87.5 receiving yards. He has more games over 100 yards in the air than he does under 87.5 yards. The NFL sportsbooks seem to trust the Patriots defense (second-lowest points allowed) to keep him in check.
T.J. Hockenson (MIN) Receiving Yards Odds
- Over(44.5) -117
- Under(44.5) -112
T.J. Hockenson and Adam Thielen are tied in terms of the exact projections they have, but Hockenson has some shading towards the over that puts him just above Thielen.
In three games with Minnesota, Hockenson has put up 149 yards as a receiver, and gone over 44.5 twice.
Adam Thielen (MIN) Receiving Yards Odds
- Over(44.5) -114
- Under(44.5) -114
Thielen is averaging 49.2 receiving yards in the ten games he’s played this season. In that time, he’s gone over 44.5 six times, and under four times.
Will Justin Jefferson hit the over?
