Vikings Haven’t Been A Great Bet At Lambeau

After a shockingly strong start to the season, the Minnesota Vikings have plummeted into mediocrity with a 2-7 SU record in their past nine. Backing the Vikings has been a perilous proposition but it may be even worse when they travel to Lambeau Field, as they have gone 2-5 ATS in their past seven in Green Bay.

SHARK BITES
  • The UNDER is 4-0 in the past 4 games between the Packers and the Vikings.
  • The Packers are 11-3 SU in their last 14 games on Saturday.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 7 of the Vikings' last 8 games as underdog.

The Vikings offense has been anemic of late with the team averaging 14.8 points in its past four outings. It didn’t appear that Adrian Peterson’s return is going to spark much of a change, as he rushed for 22 yards on six carries in his return to Minny’s lineup last week. The offensive line was terrible at run blocking for AP, as he was hit within a yard of the line of scrimmage on four of his six carries.

Green Bay has been red-hot, entering this contest on a five-game winning streak with an average scoring margin of plus-13.3 points in that span. The speculation of Aaron Rodgers’ demise was greatly exaggerated, as the Packers quarterback has completed 69.3 percent of his passes with 10 touchdowns and no interceptions in the past five.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Green Bay Packers were listed as -6.5-point favorites at Bovada and other online Sportsbooks, with the total listed at one point at 43.5.
