Point Spread: -4½/-105 Minnesota
I believe the Vikings are the better team overall here.
The Vikings will be the side I’m playing in this one. The Packers have struggled against the pass, especially on the road and Kirk Cousins should have a solid game against them. He had two INT's in the first meeting this year but has thrown one at home all year, compared to 10 TDs. I do see him bouncing back from the tough showing in the first meeting this year. Minnesota has gone a perfect 6-0 here at home for the year and they are 4-1 in their last five games overall.
The Vikes will miss Dalvin Cook but Alexander Matisson should be back and Mike Boone gives them some solid depth. The Vikes will be facing a Green Bay defense that is 24th in the league against the run. The Green Bay offense has struggled of late as they have averaged just 19.2 ppg over their last six games and they have put up just 20.8 ppg on the road. That will not get it done against a Minnesota team that has averaged a solid 27.7 pg at home. We also note that the Vikes have allowed just 14.2 ppg at home for the year. Take Minnesota to win this game by at least a TD.
