QB Brett Favre is heading back to the city that he was once the wonder child in, as he takes his newest team, the Minnesota Vikings into Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers. Check out our NFL prop selections for Sunday Night Football’s huge clash!

Brett Favre Total Passing Yards Over/Under 234.5
Things are getting better and better for No. 4 in Minneapolis, especially with WR Randy Moss in the fold. We know that Favre barely reached 100 yards passing last week against the Dallas Cowboys, but this is a totally different scenario. This is back in Green Bay. On top of that, Green Bay’s front seven is going to be keying in on RB Adrian Peterson, which really could make for a huge game for the Vikings’ passing game. Favre threw for four TD passes last year when he came to Lambeau Field, and we tend to think that he will get somewhere near this number with plenty of time to spare in this one. DB Al Harris is still banged up, just as there are a number of other Packers dealing with various injuries. Go with Favre Over 234.5 passing yards (-115 at Hollywood Sportsbook) on Sunday Night Football.

Greg Jennings Over/Under 5 Receptions
Logic would suggest that Jennings should be flying over this five reception mark due to the fact that he is one of the only targets that QB Aaron Rodgers really has to throw to at this point. However, Jennings has only reached this point once this entire season. The bad news for us in this prop is that it happened to be last week that he got there. The good news is that the Miami Dolphins’ defense was prone to a ton of deep balls. The Vikes shouldn’t be as prone to that tremendous long ball down the field like Miami was, as this is a defense that focuses more on the pass with just four ferocious rushers in the front line. As a result, we aren’t so convinced that Jennings is going to be getting there. Go with the man from “The U” Under 5 receptions (-115 at Hollywood Sportsbook).

James Jones Over/Under 2 Receptions
Call this more of a gut shot than anything else. Last week, Jones was thrown at three teams but didn’t end up making any receptions. He did have four catches the week before against the Washington Redskins after TE Jermichael Finley got hurt. This really has become one of the only threats that Rodgers has underneath on the inside, so if the Vikes are going to be keying in on Jennings and WR Donald Driver, this could be the man that ends up taking all of the pressure off with short to medium routes. We’ll take a shot on Jones going Over 2 Receptions (-160 at Hollywood Sportsbook) in this battle against the Vikings.
