Since its season-opening debacle in the Superdome, the Pack has been on a roll — both on the field and at the sportsbook. Green Bay is 9-1 ATS, including 4-1 ATS on the road. Aaron Rodgers returned from COVID quarantine this past week and helped GBay blank the Seattle Seahawks in Lambeau — handing Russell Wilson his first-ever career shutout.
Rodgers nearly got his second 300 yd passing game of the season in the home win. With a career record of 16-9-1 vs the Vikings, Rodgers has fared well, including 2-straight wins on Minnesota’s home-turf, scoring a combined 66 points. The Pack will be without RB Aaron Jones, who’s out until at least early Dec. with a knee injury.
Minnesota is led by Kirk Cousins who has complied some nice numbers (2434 passing yds, 18 TD/ 2 INT). Unfortunately, the Vikings have found creative ways to lose a host of close games and underachieve along the way. Nonetheless, they have rebounded of late, going 3-1 ATS in their last four.
After two disappointing losses to the Cowboys and Ravens, Minn held sway to beat the Chargers in L.A. behind Cousins’ 294 yd/2 TD showing. Kirk has gone 3-3-1 vs the Pack in his career. The Vikings defensive front line and linebacker corp will need to put pressure on Rodgers if they hope to avoid a trio of consecutive home defeats to GBay. The Minn defense is led by talented LB Eric Hendricks with 92 tackles, 4 sacks and 2 INT’s.
Minn is 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games, including four straight under the total. However, the last two head-to-head meetings with GBay both went over the number.
The Pack is 3-1 ATS in their last four overall vs Minn. The road team has won the last 3 contests in the series.
