Vikings vs. Packers Moneyline Free Pick

NFL Monday: Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers

So it begins. The Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers battle it out on Monday night with both teams looking to make it to the playoffs this season in the NFL. The Vikings are one of the “hot” teams for NFL betting fans to make it to the Super Bowl. They have two very good running backs in Chester Taylor and budding superstar Adrian Peterson. They have an improving quarterback in Tarvaris Jackson and their defense should be better than last year.

For the Green Bay Packers this game will be all about Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers and Green Bay’s front office are praying that Brett Favre fails miserably in green and white when he takes the field for the first time in the NFL regular season for the New York Jets on Sunday. If Favre fails, the pressure won’t be as hot on Aaron Rodgers. From a football betting point-of-view, Favre was always a good option. Football wagering fans haven’t seen enough of Rodgers in real game time situations to lay money on his team without worry.

Here are the BetUS NFL lines for this game:

Minnesota Vikings + 2 ½ – 110 + 120 O 38 – 110

Green Bay Packers – 2 ½ – 110 – 140 U 38 – 110

Here are a few online wagering trends that might help us find a good online bet in this game:

The Minnesota Vikings are 5 and 1 in their last 6 games in Week 1 of the NFL Regular Season.

The Minnesota Vikings are 11-5-1 against the spread in their last 17 games versus a team from the NFC North.

The Green Bay Packers are 5 and 1 against the spread in their last 6 games at home.

The Green Bay Packers are 8 and 3 against the spread in their last 11 games versus a team from the NFC North.

This game is going to come down to two factors. First, will Green Bay’s defensive front seven be able to handle both Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor? Taylor is an underrated running back. He should get close to ten carries in this game. Peterson will get close to fifteen.

If Minnesota can get their run game going, then Sidney Rice and Bernard Berrian could open things up on the edges for vastly improved quarterback Tarvaris Jackson. Jackson looked very good in the pre-season. He could have a huge year.

That’s the first factor. The second factor is Aaron Rodgers. Exactly how is Rodgers going to respond in his first games as a starter for the Packers? He flashed brilliance during pre-season but also showed that he’s no Brett Favre. One game he was great. The next game he looked terrible. None of that matters now. Rodgers will have to be terrific for the Packers to win this game.

The best online bet to make in this game is on the Minnesota Vikings to win straight-up at +120. The Vikings are the better team and there’s no telling how well Rodgers will play. Keeping both Taylor and Peterson down is going to be a tough task for the Packers.

I’m taking the Vikings on the money line in this game.
