The Seahawks have emerged as the league's top rushing team and much of that has to do with the performance of Chris Carson. Carson is Seattle's leading rusher with 704 yards for an average of 70.4 YPG.

Handing the rock to Carson seems to be a winning formula for Seattle. When Carson has hit double-digit carries of 13 or more the Hawks are 6-1. When he's carried less than 13 (six, seven and eight) they are 0-3. During Seattle's current three-game winning streak he's carried the ball 13, 16 and 17 times.

Carson has definitely solidified himself as the lead back as next highest carries total during their winnng streak by a fellow RB has been eight (Rashad Penny). With Penny listed as questionable with an ankle injury, Carson could also potentially handle a heavier workload.

Contrast that to the backfield of the Vikings, which is a little more balanced between Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray.

In their past four games together the Cook/Murray duo have a carries split of 9/4, 10/11, 9/4 and 10/10. Further, only one time all season has Cook carried the ball more than ten times and that came in Week 1.

On the season, Carson has only finished under 55 yards in three of his ten games. One of those three he finished just shy with 51 once.

Pick 1: Chris Carson To Have More Carries Than Dalvin Cook & To Rush For At Least 55 Yards

Prop #2: Tyler Lockett To Have At Least 4 Receptions

Receptions Odds at BetOnline
At Least 4 Receptions +104

The Seahawks' passing game has been most successful when Russell Wilson looks to the team's top WR Tyler Lockett. The two have connected often as Lockett leads the team in targets (55), receptions (44), yards (713) and TDs (9).

Going up against a Vikings run defense which ranks seventh in YPG could be enough to see some extra involvement from Seattle receivers.

Hitting on four receptions would be just slightly over his average of 3.67 receptions per game. However, in three of his past four games he's hit his season-high of five receptions. Overall Lockett has finished with four or five catches on six occasions.

With fellow WR Doug Baldwin listed as questionable with a hip injury, Lockett could be relied upon even further in Seattle's passing game.

Pick 2: Tyler Lockett To Have At Least 4 Receptions

Prop #3: Kyle Rudolph To Have At Least 3 Receptions & 30 Receiving Yards

At Least 3 Receptions -208
At Least 30 Receiving Yards -294
Parlay -143

While Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs get most of the headlines in the Vikes' passing game, TE Kyle Rudolph is typically efficient in a supporting role himself.

Rudolph has 46 catches on the year which ranks him eighth overall in the league for TEs.

You'll have to lay a little juice here but it's rare to be able to find any value when selecting totals this low.

While Rudolph rarely goes off for a huge day, he's caught at least three passes in eight of 12 games this season – twice he's caught four, three times five and on two occasions he's caught seven.

In the past two games, Rudolph has finished with 38 and 63 receiving yards – 63 was a season-high and he's reached at least 30 on eight occasions. What's great about Rudolph is that he's typically used for mid-range passing situations.

Rudolph averages 10.1 yards per catch. His longest reception in ten games this season has been at least 16 yards as well. If form holds true he could be more than halfway to the receiving total of this prop with just one catch.
