Game Analysis & Picks
The Packers and Vikings will meet for an NFC North battle in Week 1 of the season. Green Bay is once again the preseason favorite to win the NFC North at (-175) even with the loss of Davante Adams. Minnesota comes into the year at (+250) to win the NFC North and will be looking to win the conference for the first time since 2016. I love Minnesota this year and in this game. The Vikings are looking to be the new rulers of the North Division and have plenty of talent behind elite playmakers Dalvin Cook and Justin Jefferson. The Packers have so many question marks at the receiver position, and I predict it takes a few weeks for even the reigning-MVP Aaron Rodgers to get in a good rhythm with his new WR group. The Vikings get off to a hot start this year and beat the Packers, take Minnesota to cover the +1.5 spread at (-109), and take the Over 47.0 (-110).
Minnesota Vikings Over 2.5 Touchdowns (-103) – I expect the Vikings to have a big day at home against Green Bay Sunday afternoon. I can easily see Jefferson and Cook starting the season off with a couple touchdowns. Not to mention the Vikings have guys like Adam Thielen and K.J Osborn, who are more than capable of finding the end zone as well. Expect Minnesota to put up some points and take Vikings Over 2.5 touchdowns (-103).
