Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers:
Line: Packers by 9.0
Analysis: There are a lot of unknowns coming into this game, the biggest of which is whether Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will play. If he doesn’t, the Vikings will have Christian Ponder under center and that changes the outlook considerably. Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer faced Aaron Rodgers twice as a defensive coordinator and beat him both times (and knocked me out of a suicide pool one of them). Expect him to keep the game close and low scoring. The Packers also gave up 235 yards rushing to the Bears last week yet somehow managed to win the game. I think they’ll do so again, but 9 points is a lot of wood. Take em.
Straight pick: Packers
Spread Pick: Vikings + 9.0
OU Pick: Under 48.5
