On Sunday, the New York Giants travel to Minnesota to take on the Vikings. Obviously, we need player prop picks for this one to make it profitable. Handicapper Gray Gutfreund gives us his favorite anytime TD pick for this one.

New York Giants vs. Minnesota Vikings Player Prop Pick: There's No Stopping Saquon Barkley

The New York Giants were one of the NFL's biggest surprise stories in 2022. After an abysmal 4-13 season in 2021, this was expected to be a rebuilding season for Big Blue. But, new head coach Brian Daboll had other plans.

Running back Saquon Barkley has looked as great as he ever has, and he's a huge reason why the G-Men are still playing football halfway through January. New York will look to keep the good times rolling this Sunday, and the Minnesota Vikings will have a hard time stopping Saquon in this one.

New York Giants vs. Minnesota Vikings Player Prop

Saquon Barkley Any Time Touchdown Scorer (-120) (Bet $120 to collect $220) Get these odds right now at FanDuel

This might be a popular or "chalk" play, but who cares? FanDuel is offering us a beautiful price of -120, compared to many other sportsbooks where this is closer to -140. That already feels like a win in my book.

Plus, we're getting one of the most electrifying players in football against one of the worst defenses in the postseason. Barkley scored in 10 of his 16 games this season, and every single one of these touchdowns came on the ground.

Saquon's scoring frequency put him in some elite company this season. His 10 games with at least one endzone trip were good enough to have him tied for 3rd most in the league. Only Austin Ekeler (11) and Christian McCaffrey (11) had more games with a touchdown from scrimmage in 2022.

The Vikings offer a nice matchup for #26 and the Giants this Sunday, too. Minnesota conceded a rushing touchdown in 12 of their 17 games this season, including one to Saquon when these teams met just three weeks ago.

Minnesota had the NFL's 23rd-ranked defense by EPA this season. And, they had the 30th-ranked scoring defense. The Giants had no problems moving the ball against this defense in Week 16, as their 445 yards of offense in that contest were the most they totaled in any game this season. I'd expect the G-Men to be able to move the ball with ease on Sunday, which should open up plenty of opportunities for Saquon to punch one in.

Barkley ranked 6th in Rushing Attempts and 5th in Rush TD inside the 5-yard line this season. His 50% success rate inside the five ranked 4th out of 15 players with double-digit carries in that portion of the field. When the Giants enter striking range on Sunday, look for Saquon to find paydirt.
