SNF Betting Preview: Vikings at Packers

Adrian Peterson Vikings

The NFC North crown is on the line when the Minnesota Vikings travel to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers Sunday night. The Vikings enter the game as an underdog and that is just where they like to be as Minnesota is 7-0 ATS in their seven games as a road dog.

Shark Bites
  • The Vikings are 0-5-1 SU and 1-5 ATS in their last six games at Lambeau.
  • The Packers are 8-2 SU in their last 10 against NFC North opponents.
  • Eddie Lacy had one of his three 100 yard rushing performances of the season against the Vikings.

The last two games have seen the Vikings dominate opponents with a combined score of 87-34 in favour of Minny. Though Teddy Bridgewater deserves his credit, five touchdowns passes and no turnovers in those two games, the Vikings defense has been phenomenal. The Vikings D has recorded nine sacks, four interceptions and forced three fumbles in those games.

The Packers are coming off one of the worst ass-kickings of the year when they lost 38-8 to the Cardinals last week. Aaron Rodgers was abused in that game as he was sacked eight times and had his lowest quarterback rating since December 2012.

When these teams met for the first time this season it was the Packers defense that took the game over as they held Adrian Peterson to 45 yards on 13 carries and sacked Bridgewater six times. 

Opening Odds & Computer Pick
