Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings | 8:15pm | ESPN
All eyes will be on U.S. Bank Stadium on Monday night when Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers square off against Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings for the second and final time in the regular season. The end result ramifications of this matchup are huge with Green Bay invading the Twin Cities owners of a one-game lead atop the NFC North standings, while the Vikings are attempting to claim a better playoff seed instead of holding onto the sixth and final playoff spot in the NFC. Tune to ESPN at 8:15 p.m. ET to see how it all plays out with the home based Vikings looking to defeat the Packers as hosts a fourth straight time as 4.5-point favorites with the game total lined at 46.5.
While it was far from pretty, Matt LaFleur’s Packers withstood a fourth quarter rush from the Chicago Bears to hold on for the 21-13 win and cover as 4-point favorites per the closing NFL odds. Though the defense allowed for Mitch Trubisky and company to rack up 415 yards of combined offense, it came up big when it mattered most in the red zone where Chicago put points on the board in just one of its three overall visits. Most bothersome however was Green Bay’s offense struggling to once again find a rhythm. Rodgers only threw for 203 yards and 1 TD while completing less than half of his 33 overall passes. Minnesota is one of the best offenses in the league at converting in the red zone (No. 4), so Green Bay must be better in Week 16 if it plans on winning the division. The Packers check in 4-2 SU and ATS away from Lambeau Field.
Winners of two straight both SU and ATS after going into Tinseltown and demolishing the Chargers, the Vikings return home with a head of steam looking to remain perfect when taking the field in front of the hometown faithful. That said, the Vikings head back to the Twin Cities not knowing if their most deadly offensive weapon will be available after Dalvin Cook was forced from the game with an apparent shoulder injury. Even so, Minnesota was still able to run the ball down the Chargers’ throats once he left. That bodes extremely well for the offense considering it’s predicated upon doing as such to be successful offensively. Minnesota has been nothing short of fantastic in its own building to date in going 6-0 SU and 4-2 ATS winning by an average of 13.5 points per game; it’s won and covered the last three times it hosted their archrivals.
Early betting reports look to have the wagering public siding with the Packers plus the points. Minnesota initially hit the board as 5-point favorites to come out on top of this matchup, but the number to beat now checks in at -4.5 with 61 percent of the early bet count backing the current NFC North leaders. The Vikings have been installed favorites to defeat the Packers at home only three times dating back to the 2009 season, and Mike Zimmer’s troops stand 2-1 SU and ATS in those matchups winning by an average of 7 points per game with the loss coming in the form of an ugly 30-13 defeat back in 2015. The total is yet to move off the 46.5-points it was initially released at. Green Bay scored the 21-16 win and cover in the first skirmish back in Week 2 with the 37 combined points cashing under tickets for the fourth time in the last five overall meetings.
