Moneyline: Vikings +110, Eagles -130
Our picks, best bets
Pick against the spread: Vikings +2
Minnesota limited Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers to just a single touchdown in Week 1, while Justin Jefferson had his way at the expense of the opposing secondary. For every point that the Eagles may score on Monday night, the Vikings are just as well equipped to fire back and then some. The x-factor may be the Eagles’ rushing defense, which allowed the fifth-most rushing yards in Week 1 (181). Minnesota should be prepared to keep the Eagles' defense honest on the ground, and thus keep this a tightly contested game.
Over/under: Over 50.5
The last time these two teams met was back in October of 2019 when they both combined for 58 total points. Both teams have offenses that can attack through the air and on the ground, and the high point total is set for a reason. Oddsmakers are betting this is a closely contested but high-scoring affair. The Eagles scored the second-most points in Week 1, but Minnesota has the personnel to match every score. We’re taking the over on the high point total set for Monday night.
