Minnesota Vikings at San Francisco 49ers Final Betting Prediction
The Vikings should cover the spread because they’ve done so in 4-of-5. But before dumping on Minnesota ATS, take a hard look at the moneyline.
Simply put, the Vikings should be a 2 to 3 loss team, not a 5 loss team. Minnesota had no business losing to the Cowboys on Oct. 31 or Cleveland on Oct. 3.
The NFL Week 2 loss to the Arizona Cardinals happened because the Vikings missed a last second field goal. If those three games had gone differently, the Vikings would be sitting atop the NFC North.
The 49ers are a different story. 2 of the Niners’ last 3 wins were against Jacksonville and Chicago. San Francisco impressively beat the Los Angels Rams, but it appears that the Rams may not be as good as they looked in the early season upset victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
No way San Francisco should offer -3. The Vikings have a great shot to cover the spread because they’ve done so in 4-of-5. But why not go for the big money? Play Minnesota moneyline to cash big.
