Dallas vs. Minnesota,

Score: 17 - 15
Point Spread: +4/-110 Minnesota
This is a 10* SIDE OF THE WEEK on the Minnesota Vikings.
REASONING: Dallas has been unbelievably impressive obviously, as the combination of a rookie phenom QB Dak Prescott and RB Ezekiel Elliot have the Cowboys at 10-1. Minnesota’s run game has been non-existent this season and QB Sam Bradford has been just adequate. The Vikes rank dead last in almost every offensive category. The defense and special teams have been exceptional though and are the main reason that Minnesota is 6-5 and still very much in playoff contention. Desperation breeds motivation and success often leads to complacency. So far everything has gone the Cowboys’ way this season, but we think the desperate home side will give them everything they can handle today. The Vikes have 28 sacks, which rank seventh in the NFL, and the secondary has 12 INT’s, ranked third. Bradford continues to be extremely effecient, as he’s completed 71.3 percent of his passes, with 12 TD’s to just three picks. Also note that Bradford catches a bit of a break today, as the Dallas pass rush is tied for 25th in the league in sacks. The Cowboys are just 1-3 ATS in their last four “Thursday night” games (including 0-1 this season), while the Vikings are 16-6 ATS in their last 22 at home, including 4-1 ATS this season and 11-6 ATS in their last 17 against teams with winning records. Bradford has been given the green light to go deep and he’s facing the perfect defense to do it against. Head coach Mike Zimmer is a defensive specialist and we think the Vikes can put significant pressure on Prescott tonight. Grab the points, play on the VIKINGS.
