NFL Week 11: Packers vs. Vikings Money Line Predictions

Packers-vs-Vikings-Week-11Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings Preview

Kick-Off: Sunday, November 22nd 2015 at 4:25pm ET
Location: U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota
TV: FOX

THERE’S no better game on the schedule in week eleven than this one. The Minnesota Vikings 7-2 (8-1 ATS) will play host to the Green Bay Packers 6-3 (5-4 ATS) in a battle for first place in the NFC North.

The Vikings have been on a tear. Since a week five bye, Minnesota have gone undefeated (5-0). However, the wins came against the Chiefs, Lions, Bears, Rams and Raiders – not the toughest competition to say the least.

Are the Vikings for real? We’ll find out this week, as the Packers are never easy to beat.

Green Bay were 5-1 heading into their week seven bye, but they’ve since gone 1-2 with losses to the Panthers and Lions. Last week’s loss to Detroit (18-16) at Lambeau will be tough to bounce back from.

What are the betting odds for the Packers vs. Vikings

The odds are from Bovada.lv and Bodog.eu – Bodog is open to Canadian bettors only.

The money line and point spread action has been basically split. Green Bay are getting slightly more bets, but a lot of those are public bets. Surprisingly, about 80% of the bets on the game total have been on under.

Stats pack

Let’s quickly breakdown how these two teams match-up on paper.

The Vikings are playing good old cut throat football. They have one of the best running games and they don’t give up many points. Those stats are great, but the Vikings schedule has been kind up to this point.

Green Bay rank above average in most categories, but they don’t excel anywhere except TO margin. We all know turnovers aren’t consistent, so the fact the Packers defense allows so many yards is worrisome.

There are several players on each team listed on the injury report. Teddy Bridgewater and Aaron Rodgers are both banged up, but will be starting. Adrian Peterson has been limited this week, but will play as well. Eddie Lacy missed last week and could miss this week, although James Starks is the RB1 now anyways.

Packers at Vikings best bet

This is going to be a wild game and definitely the one game this week you don’t want to miss.

I’m betting on the Packers money line for several reasons. First off, the Packers are 9-1-1 against Minnesota since 2010. That’s an incredible H2H record against a division rival in the NFL and one you can’t avoid. I also expect GB to bounce back from the brutal loss to Detroit.

Minnesota can’t be counted out, though. The Vikings are a perfect 4-0 at home, but this will be their first real test at home this season. It wouldn’t surprise me if the Vikings were exposed. If Rodgers, Randall Cobb and the rest of the Packers pass attack are playing well, Bridgewater and the Vikings won’t be able to keep up.

The Vikings haven’t been able to pass against many opponents this season. The Packers aren’t great against the pass, but they should keep Bridgewater limited, especially now that Stefon Diggs has cooled down. The only hope the Vikings have on offense is Peterson, but he isn’t 100% after a heavy workload in week ten.

Green Bay will likely win the turnover battle too. Rodgers only has three INTs on the year, while Bridgewater has thrown 6 INTs already. Minnesota’s defense only has 6 INTs this season (21st), while the Packers rank 6th with 11 INTs. One of or two timely interceptions could open this game wide open for Green Bay.
