Bet The Minnesota Vikings Because…
Minnesota has won a blistering seven straight games and eight of their last nine including their hard-fought 30-23 win over NFC North division rival Detroit last weekend to cover the chalk as a 2.5-point road favorite. Quarterback Case Keenum passed for 282 yards and two touchdowns while veteran running back Latavius Murray added 84 rushing yards and one score.
Bet The Atlanta Falcons Because…
Following their uninspiring three-game losing streak to open the month of September, Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons have now won three straight games and four of their last five games overall. Atlanta throttled the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers 34-20 last weekend to cash in as a 10.5-point home favorite as Ryan passed for 317 yards and one score and veteran running back Tevin Coleman added 97 rushing yards and two scores in the win.
Minnesota Vikings Vs Atlanta Falcons Free Pick
While the betting public is almost perfectly split down the middle on this one, I’m a bit surprised the figure is so close. While 48 percent of public bettors like the Falcons to get the home win and narrow ATS cover, I don’t see it happening even though the Falcons at are home against the Vikings.
I am betting with the 52 percent of the public are backing Vikings to cover the field goal betting line in this contest. Minnesota is now statistically the better team on both sides of the ball and I believe their outstanding defense will find a way to limit Atlanta’s offense, much like the Panthers and Patriots did in Atlanta’s last two losses! The underdog in this series is 3-0-1 ATS in the last four meetings and the Vikings are 3-1-1 ATS in the last five.
