Minnesota has been a profitable play as a home favorite

The Minnesota Vikings are 15-4 SU and 14-5 ATS in their last 19 games as home favorites. After knocking off the Green Bay Packers as home underdogs last week, the Vikings look to cash in as home favorites this Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.

SHARK BITES
  • The favored team is 7-0 SU in its last seven games in this matchup.
  • The Ravens are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games in October.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Vikings’ last eight games after consecutive wins.

With Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater both sidelined with injuries, Case Keenum has stepped up in the starting role. Keenum has led the Vikings to a 3-1 SU and 2-2 ATS record over their last four games, and suddenly an NFC North title looks like an achievable goal with Aaron Rodgers out for the season in Green Bay. Minnesota is 24-10 ATS in its last 34 early afternoon games.

A promising 2-0 SU and ATS start has gone by the wayside as the Ravens are 1-3 SU and ATS over their last four games. The once-reliable Joe Flacco is now the lowest-rated starting quarterback in the NFL with a 66.1 passer rating and an ugly 4-to-8 touchdown-to-interception ratio. If the Ravens hope to snap their current 0-5 SU streak on the road against teams with winning records, Flacco’s play will need to improve.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

Sportsbooks, including Bovada, had set the Minnesota Vikings as 4.5-point favorites on the opening line for this contest. The total was hovering around 39.5 earlier in the week (check for the current OVER/UNDER lines at MyBookie).

A 29-12 result in favor of the Vikings was the prediction by the OddsShark handicapping pick engine earlier this week. View the computer score prediction and who will win the pick on the moneyline for all upcoming NFL matchups here.
