The Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks meet Monday in week 13 NFL action at CenturyLink Field.
The Minnesota Vikings look for a statement win after winning six of their last seven games. The Minnesota Vikings have split their last six road games. Kirk Cousins is completing 70.6 percent of his passes for 2,756 yards, 21 touchdowns and three interceptions. Cousins has two or more touchdown passes in 11 of his last 20 games. Stefon Diggs and Dalvin Cook have combined for 1,335 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Adam Thielen has 27 receptions. The Minnesota Vikings ground game is averaging 142.5 yards per contest, and Cook leads the way with 1,017 yards and 11 touchdowns. Defensively, Minnesota is allowing 18.6 points and 338.6 yards per game. Eric Kendricks leads the Minnesota Vikings with 86 tackles, Danielle Hunter has 8.5 sacks and Anthony Harris has three interceptions.
The Seattle Seahawks look for another win to build on their four-game winning streak. The Seattle Seahawks have won three of their last five home games. Russell Wilson is completing 67.3 percent of his passes for 2,937 yards, 24 touchdowns and three interceptions. Wilson has two or more touchdown passes in 18 of his last 23 games. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf have combined for 1,462 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns while Will Dissly has 23 receptions. The Seattle Seahawks ground game is averaging 136.9 yards per contest, and Chris Carson leads the way with 879 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Seattle is allowing 23.9 points and 370.3 yards per game. Bobby Wagner leads the Seattle Seahawks with 105 tackles, Mychal Kendricks has three sacks and Tedric Thompson has two interceptions.
The Vikings are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC, 21-10 ATS in their last 31 games in December and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 Monday games. The Seahawks are 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 Monday games, 11-5-1 ATS in their last 17 vs. NFC and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games. The Vikings are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Seattle and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The over is 14-6 in Seahawks last 20 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Vikings last 6 games overall.
The Minnesota Vikings are 1-5 ATS in their last six games as a road underdog. The Seattle Seahawks are 1-5 ATS in their last six games as a home favorite. The Minnesota Vikings have had an extra week to prepare for this game, which is obviously huge, but you're never sure which team you're going to get, particularly when it comes to Cousins at the quarterback position. The Seattle Seahawks are feeling themselves with wins in seven of their last eight tries, and we're starting to see that defense become more and more consistent. The Seahawks seem to be getting better each week, while the Vikings are a box of chocolates. I don't want to have money on Cousins in a hostile environment. I'll lay the field goal with the home team.
