The Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings face off on Sunday in a big-time NFL rivalry at US Bank Stadium. When these two teams faced off last November, it was the Vikings that won 28-22.
Green Bay comes into this game with an 8-2 record overall and in the last game they were able to come away with a 17-0 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. The offense in the last game didn’t look the best at times, but the defense was quite impressive. The Packers are averaging 21.6 points while their defense is giving up 18 points per game. Aaron Jones is out for this game with an injury which a few years ago would have been a bigger deal, but they have AJ Dillon in the backfield. In the last game, Dillon finished with 66 yards and two touchdowns.
On the other side of this matchup is the Minnesota Vikings who have been ultra inconsistent this season but they are coming off a big win on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Vikings are averaging 24.6 points while their defense is giving up 23.4 points per game. Kirk Cousins is having another big year for the Vikings throwing for 2,434 yards, 18 touchdowns, and two interceptions. Justin Jefferson is coming off another big game, and the Vikings are going to need him to have a big game in this one.
The Packers are 6-0 against the spread in their last six games against the NFC. The Vikings are 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 games against the NFC. The underdog is 9-4 against the spread in the last 13 meetings. The under is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings. The under is 6-1 in the last seven meetings in Minnesota.
When these two teams have faced off, the under has been a strong play, and it’s going to be the case again in this game. The Packers defense is much improved, and Cousins will struggle a bit. I also expect the Packers offense is going to have issues with the noise. Back the under to cash.
