Vikings vs Packers Predictions
These two teams faced each other back in Week 11 where it came down to Minnesota kicking that last second field goal to grab the 34-31 home victory. In that Week 11 matchup, both teams combined for 875 total yards. Minnesota’s Quarterback Kirk Cousins played great, throwing for 341 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions, but unfortunately, per the announcement on Friday, he won’t be able to play in this game due to health protocols.
Now, Quarterback Sean Mannion, a seven year backup in the NFL, will get the start over rookie Kellen Mond.. Mannion only has two career starts in the league, one in 2017 and one in 2019. Mannion will now how the toughest task of his career ahead of him. He has to take this 7-8 Vikings team to Lambeau Field to face this 12-3 Packers team.
Green Bay will be hungry for a win, because they need to get that first-round bye in the playoffs while also officially eliminating the Vikings.
The good news for Minnesota is that Dalvin Cook should be back on the field after missing last game due to health protocols. In just 11 games played this season, Cook has put up over 1067 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns and if they can somehow upset this Packers team it will because of him playing a monster game.
Our player prop of the day will actually be on Dalvin Cook, so if you want free access to this player prop once it’s released, then just text “Cook” to 702-234-0597. These prop bets are been red hot and this one should be another winner.
The Vikings on the road this NFL Season have the 7th best offense in the league that are scoring an average of 27.4 points, but they’ve been subpar on defense giving up an average of 27 points per game.
Minnesota are 5-10 against the spread in their last 15 games when playing on the road against Green Bay and the total has gone over in 4 of the Vikings last 5 games against an opponent in the NFC.
Green Bay’s game plan will be to attack Minnesota on the ground, because the Vikings defense is ranked 28th in the league with 130.5 rushing yards allowed per game. Back in Week 11 against the Vikings running back Aaron Jones was not around due to MCL injury but he’s now healthy and ready to big up big numbers.
