Why bet on Green Bay versus Minnesota?

The Packers have hit their stride. After starting the season playing terrible football, things finally gelled. 

Green Bay has beaten and covered against Chicago, the Los Angeles Rams, and the Miami Dolphins. The reason? Green Bay’s offense is clicking.

The Pack scored 28 against the Bears, 24 versus the Rams, and 26 versus Miami. Green Bay is playing like a team possessed.

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers Final Betting Prediction

Rodgers doesn’t have bad games in the cold at Lambeau. That’s the first thing to remember. The second is that Green Bay’s defense isn’t the only unit playing well. The Packers shut down Tua Tagovailoa and the Miami offense, holding one of the highest-scoring O’s in the league to 20 points. 

Minnesota is a quality team but the Vikings rank twenty-eight in rushing yards per game. The Packers’ defense is going to do to Kirk Cousins what it did to Tua, hang back and goad Kirk into bad throw after bad throw.

Also, the Vikings have gotten blown out twice this season on the road. The first came in a 7-24 game versus Jalen Hurts and Philadelphia. The second game was a 3-40 pasting they suffered against the Cowboys. 

Minny’s pass defense is terrible. We should expect Rodgers to hook up with his receivers all day. Green Bay blows by the spread with an easy win and cover.
