One of the easiest transitions into sports betting is through player props, as fantasy applications are helpful for evaluating betting opportunities.

One way to consistently find defined edges is by utilizing PFF's player props tool. The ability to adjust both number and price means you are always certain of the expected value for each prop bet.

Let’s dive into the best player props to bet for Sunday Night Football.

Vikings WR Justin Jefferson over 6.5 receptions (-120)

Jefferson hasn't had to deal with a sophomore slump, as the Vikings wideout’s 80.8 receiving grade ranks 10th among wide receivers with at least 100 snaps.

While Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs is having an electric campaign, he is only projected to line up across from Jefferson for 22 of 59 snaps on Sunday, which is why Jefferson has an “excellent” 88.9 matchup grade for the game, per PFF’s WR/CB Matchup Chart — fifth-best among all qualified receivers this week.

PFF's Player Props Tool reveals betting opportunities within player prop markets.

PFF’s Player Props tool gives Jefferson a 58.3% chance to catch at least seven balls, and at -120 odds, it carries a positive expected value according to PFF's model.
