Expert ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
The Vikings defense is the best in the NFL and they will make it hard for Wentz who replaced Minnesota’s QB during the offseason. This will be a thank you for keeping our Super Bowl hopes alive after we lost Teddy kind of game.
My final score prediction is Minnesota 24, Philadelphia 20.
