In a rematch from Week 17, division rivals clash as the sixth-seed Minnesota Vikings (10-6) take on the third-seed Green Bay Packers (11-5) Saturday at 8:00ET. NFL odds are found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Vikings needed to win their final four games to earn a spot in the playoffs, and they did. They finished the season at 10-6 SU and 8-7-1 ATS, including a win over these same Packers in Week 17. Their winning formula has been to play defense and hand it off to AP as much as possible.
Going into last week, the Packers had won four in a row to put them in a position to earn a bye and the #2 seed with a win. By losing, they earned a rematch against those same Vikings. For the year, they are 11-5 SU and 9-7 ATS. The Packers string of four straight covers was snapped last week as well, although they have covered in six of their last eight games.
Green Bay is a 7 ½ point favorite. These rematches typically don’t see a team winning twice in a row. The question is whether or not the Packers can win by more than a touchdown. Figure this game to not be that close. Take the Packers -7 ½ at www.sportsbookroom.com.
