Sunday Night Football Betting Preview: Packers vs. Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings will christen their glamorous new stadium in Week 2 against the rival Green Bay Packers, as another chapter will be written in this ever-growing NFC North rivalry.

Shark Bites
  • The Packers are 10-2-1 SU in their last 13 games against the Vikings.
  • The Vikings are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games against teams with winning records.
  • The Packers are 11-3 SU in their last 14 games as road favorites.

The Vikes (1-0), who opened as 2-point underdogs, are coming off a season-opening 25-16 triumph over the Tennessee Titans. At the time of writing, Minnesota was day-to-day with their quarterback announcement.

Shaun Hill guided Minny to Week 1’s win, but his performance didn’t inspire much confidence in the coaching staff. Newly acquired signal-caller Sam Bradford is waiting in the wings, and another week of learning the playbook will likely help his starting chances.

Green Bay (1-0) held off a late charge by Jacksonville to start the campaign on the right foot in a 29-25 victory at EverBank Field. Aaron Rodgers was his usual dominant self, and star wide receiver Jordy Nelson didn’t miss a beat in his first action since missing the entire 2015 season with a knee injury.

The total, which opened at 44.5, will generate significant interest from UNDER bettors. In the last three meetings between the clubs, the UNDER is a perfect 3-0.

Green Bay will be out for revenge after Minny claimed the NFC North banner last year. The purple and gold hadn’t won the title since 2009 before then.
