Vikings vs Packers Prediction & Player Prop of the Game: Can Rodgers and Co. stay alive?
The Vikings travel to Lambeau Field to take on their division rival, The Green Bay Packers.
This game is very important to both sides, as the Vikings are still looking to move up as close as possible to the number 1 seed and the Packers are simply fighting for one of the last Wild Card spots.
It should be a fun one in Lambeau, so who is going to come out on top?
Here is my analysis, a Game Prediction, and my favorite Player Prop in this game.
Let’s dive in!
3 in a Row for the Pack
The Packers season looked dead in the water a month ago, sitting at 4-8 and talks of Aaron Rodgers being benched started circulating.
Since then, the Packers have won 3 in a row and are flirting with a playoff position, if they can keep winning.
Aaron Rodgers has been doing enough to get the job done and is finally clicking with Allen Lazard and Rookie Christian Watson.
The Packers have also been running the ball really well with their 1-2 punch in Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon.
If they can keep their offense balanced and Rodgers can continue to gel with his wide-outs, anything can happen.
The Vikings will have a plan for that and will look to bury their division rival, at home.
Vikings for Real?
It’s weird to ask if a 12-3 team is ‘legit’ but for some reason, the Vikings have alot of doubters.
Either way, they are the NFC North winners and are playing awesome football right now, and look poised for a playoff run if they can just keep it going.
Justin Jefferson has taken that next step in becoming arguably the best wideout in the league and has elevated Kirk Cousins to looking like the 100 million dollar man that the Vikings paid for.
While this game doesn’t mean anything for the Vikings for the division, they still have their sights on the number 1 seed in the NFC and with Jalen Hurts being out for the Eagles yet again this week, this could be the Vikings chance to invade.
So, as you can see, both of these teams have it all out in front of them in this game, albeit for different reasons.
The Cherry on top is that these teams hate each other and have had some amazing matchups throughout their rich history.
Sunday will surely be added to the list.
- Vikings +3 (+100)
- Packers -3 (-122)
- Vikings (+162)
- Packers (-194)
- Over 48.5 (-110)
- Under 48.5 (-110)
The Packers have continued to prove more and more people wrong over the past month.
Silenced all the noise and have just gone out and won.
At home, in another must-win situation, I think they get the job done again.
It should be an awesome game to watch and I expect it to come down to the wire but the Packers NEED this game.
The Vikings would like to win it but I am going to side with team that NEEDS to win, not the one that would LIKE to win.
Packers -3 (-122)
Vikings +3 (+100)
