SNF Odds Preview: Vikings vs Giants

Adrian Peterson Vikings

The Vikings have been one of the NFL’s best bets this season, posting an 11-3 ATS record. They’ll be looking to make their backers’ wallets even fatter when they host the New York Giants on Sunday Night.

It’s a sad state of affairs for a Giants team who’ve lost four out of their last five games. They’ll be without their human highlight reel receiver Odell Beckham who’s suspended for the game and their playoff aspirations could go up in smoke with a loss in this one. One positive for the Giants is that they’ve gone 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine road games.

Shark Bites
  • The Giants are 3-1 ATS in their last four games against the Vikings.
  • The Vikings are 12-3 ATS in their last 15 games after an ATS win.
  • Giants receiver Rueben Randal has 638 yards and six touchdowns this season.

The Vikings have been a great bet in the last full month of the NFL regular season over the past few years as they’ve gone 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games in December. At home, in particular, the Vikings have gone 8-1 SU and 7-2 ATS in their last nine December home games.

It’s possible that the Giants might be running into the Viking at the right time though, as December hasn’t been a strong month for Adrian Peterson. In his three games this month, the most rushing yards he’s recorded in a game has been 69.
