Week 10 Packers vs. Vikings NFL Predictions

NFL Week Ten Gambling – Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings

The Green Bay Packers (4-4 SU, 4-3-1 ATS) and the Minnesota Vikings (4-4 SU, 3-5 ATS) played each other in the opening game of the season. On Sunday they meet up once again, in an NFC North contest that is set to get underway at 1 PM ET at the Metrodome (artificial turf) in Minneapolis.

Sunday, November 9
BetUS NFL Betting Odds: MINNESOTA -2.5, Total 45.5

NOTABLE STAT: Green Bay has allowed 4.9 yards per rushing attempt
KEY NFL FOOTBALL BETTING TREND: The Packers are 10-3-1 ATS in its last 14 road games

In the BetUS NFL football betting odds, the Vikings are listed as a 2.5-point favorite, with a posted total of 45.5 points.

Here are some NFL football betting trends as they relate to this matchup:

* GB is 2-3-1 ATS in its last six games
* GB has won 17 of its last 25 games SU
* GB has lost four of its last six games SU
* GB has played 13 of its last 17 games OVER the total
* GB is 10-3-1 ATS in its last 14 road games
* GB has won 10 of its last 14 road games SU
* GB has played six of its last nine road games OVER the total
* MINN has covered three of its last 11 games
* MINN has won four of its last six games SU
* MINN has played four of its last five games OVER the total
* MINN has covered two of its last six home games
* MINN has won seven of its last nine home games SU
* MINN has played four of its last six home games UNDER the total


* GB has won the last five meetings SU
* GB has covered four of the last five meetings
* GB has won and covered four of the last five meetings SU as the road team
* Six of the last eight meetings in Minneapolis have gone OVER the total

The Packers have won the last five meetings between these teams, including a 24-19 win in the season’ opening week, when Aaron Rodgers got red-hot, hitting 18 of his 22 attempts. Rodgers has firmly established himself as the starter – and the future – in Green Bay, signing a lucrative contract extension just this past week. All told, Rodgers has registered a 64% completion rate, with 15 TD’s and just seven interceptions, and Green Bay is no longer apprehensive about putting the ball in his hands and asking him to make plays. he went up against a very capable Tennessee defense last week, and still threw for 314 yards, which is his second highest total ever.

Now that we’ve said all that, we have to point out that now that Minnesota has replaced the ineffective Tarvaris Jackson with Gus Frerotte at quarterback, they have more offensive capability. Frerotte is not in his prime, but he is a veteran, and he has thrown five TD passes the last two weeks (to be fair, he also had five INT’s). But between the two running games, Minnesota is the one much more likely to exploit the other’s defense, as they have the better workhorse (Adrian Peterson, with 823 yards and 4.7 ypc) and by far the better defensive line (allowing 3.1 ypc, to 4.9 for Green Bay). Peterson, we might add, is on a better per-game pace (102.9 ypg) than he had last season. Jared Allen and Kevin Williams (seven sacks apiece) will exert sufficient pressure in Rodgers, so Ryan Grant, who has rushed for 281 yards in the last three games, had better be unusually effective.

We think the battle at the line of scrimmage, the revenge motivation on the part of Minnesota, and what promises to be a raucous pro-Viking crowd to rattle Rodgers, make the difference here. So we will lay the points with Minnesota, the 2.5-point favorite in the BetUS NFL pro football sports betting odds.
