Sunday Night Football betting splits
Packers vs. Vikings
Spread: Vikings -1
The Vikings are slight favorites at home in this matchup. It’s a bit surprising given the injuries and who is starting at QB for Minnesota. Jaren Hall will start over Nick Mullens after that experiment didn’t work out. The Packers have a ton of issues on defense and Jaire Alexander and Eric Stokes won’t play. But if Green Bay can get to the rookie QB, that should be enough to force mistakes. The Packers still have the advantage on offense with Jordan Love, who has played well against the Vikings’ type of defensive scheme. As a result, we’re seeing 64% of the handle and 60% of the bets on the Packers to over at +1.
Over/Under: 43 points
Most of the handle is on the under at 72% and more of the bets are on the over at 69%, so this is a tricky line to figure out. We know Christian Watson and Dontayvion Wicks will likely be out for Green Bay on offense. But the Packers have their full stable of RBs with Aaron Jones finally looking healthy. The Vikings are without TE TJ Hockenson sidelined and WR Jordan Addison is banged up, but expected to be active. I can see why people are betting the over. Neither defense is any good and Green Bay’s could be worse than usual if that’s even possible. Both sides should put up points and this total isn’t very high. A 24-20 score gets us there and that seems very feasible. Give me the over.
Moneyline: Packers -102, Vikings -118
The Packers are getting 62% of the handle and 59% of the bets on the moneyline to win straight up. Green Bay has the better quarterback and that may be the main reason people are backing the Pack. But we’ve seen the line move in favor of the Vikings slightly from -115 to -118. This feels like a game the Packers squeak out. It really comes down to Hall and if he can avoid pressure and make throws to Justin Jefferson.
