Our picks, best bets
Pick against the spread: Packers -3
Someone needs to investigate how the Vikings have a 12-3 record after looking at their stats. Minnesota’s defense ranks 31st in yards per play (6.0), and the offense is in the bottom half of the league offensively in that category. The Packers won three straight games, and let’s side with the team more desperate for a win with homefield advantage.
Over/under: Over 48
These are two pretty bad defenses as the Packers and Vikings both rank in the bottom six in yards per play on that side of the ball. Minnesota is second-to-last in yards per pass attempt allowed (7.5), and Green Bay is 29th in yards per rush attempt (5.0). It’s obvious to see how both offenses should attack the opposing defenses, and they’re set up for success.
Player prop: Dalvin Cook Over 72.5 rushing yards (-115)
The Vikings should run the ball a ton in this matchup, and Cook exceeded 85 yards in three of his last four games against the Packers. He rushed for 90 yards on 20 carries against Green Bay in Week 1, and it’s highly likely he sees another big workload on Sunday afternoon.
