Vikings vs Packers
Vikings +6 over Packers (win)
Vikings/Packers Over 49.5 (win)In the first meeting this year the Packers picked this Vikings team apart. Minnesota couldn’t get their offense going until it was too late, but today the weather favors the Vikings. Minnesota is fresh off the bye week and are healthy. The winds are going to be high in this game which plays to Minnesota’s strengths. Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison should have big days running the ball. Aaron Jones is out for Green Bay so the running game does take a hit. Aaron Rodgers isn’t as mobile as he once was so I do think Minnesota can win this game. The problem for the Vikings is Aaron Rodgers is always the best player on the field and Minnesota is missing their top three cornerbacks in this game with the other one being just a rookie. The wind might be blowing around, but it will be hard for these guys to stop the Green Bay receivers and hard to come up and make cold weather tackles as well. This should be a great game. I think the Vikings have a great shot at winning if they stick to the game plan. Take the Vikings and the Over.
Bills – 4 over Patriots (loss)The Bills are built for this type of weather. Josh Allen has a cannon of an arm, he can run and he has the big hands to hold onto the ball when the winter conditions start rolling in. Cam Newton is a diva. This Patriots offense has been brutal all year and without a couple key receivers I just don’t see them all of a sudden moving the ball today. This is simply not the Patriots year. The New England Defense is seriously undermanned and the Bills should win both sides of the ball. Take Buffalo.
Titans -6.5 over Bengals (loss)Cincinnati is going up against a great defense today and will be without their top running back Joe Mixon. That’s only half of the bad news. The Bengals Offensive Line will be without their center, their left tackle and right tackle. Good luck. Joe Burrow is just a rookie and we have yet to see him play in conditions with high winds and colder weather. The Titans are built for this type of game and we should see Derrick Henry have a get right game this afternoon and the Titans should move the ball at will against this defense. Take Tennessee.
