Our picks for Packers vs. Vikings
Pick against the spread: GB -2
I think the Packers' defense has a better chance of slowing down Kirk Cousins and forcing the Vikings to run than the alternative. Yes, that makes that Minnesota will be running Dalvin Cook, but for whatever reason, they still try to force the pass whenever they can and it is going to hurt them this game against the Packers secondary. I think the Packers' offense is still going to be solid, even without Aaron Jones, and I think they are going to pull away with the victory.
Over/under: UNDER 49.5
This is going to be a great test for the Packers' secondary. They are giving up the third-fewest passing yards a game and are going to have to contend with slowing down the wide receiver duo of Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson. The Vikings have the ninth-most passing yards per game in the NFL and so I think this game is won on the ground. This will slow the game down and we will see the UNDER be hit.
Preferred player prop: Davante Adams OVER 97.5 receiving yards
The Vikings have allowed Keenan Allen, Marquise Brown, CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, DK Metcalf, and Rondale Moore to top that number this season.
