Why Bet On The Vikings
The Vikings were an early Super Bowl favorite with their stout defense, the acquisition of Kirk Cousins, and the return of Dalvin Cook. Now Minnesota sits at third in the NFC North at 1-1-1.
Last week the Vikings lost at home as a 16.5-point favorite to the lowly Bills. I don’t see Minnesota making the same mistakes as last week. Combine that with a couple of big injuries on the Rams D and the Vikings might be a smart NFL Week 4 ATS pick.
Why Bet On The Rams
The L.A. Rams are the favorite to win Super Bowl 53 with their high octane offense and top-tier defense. This week the offense will have to do the heavy lifting with CBs Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib out due to injury.
Opposing defenses are focusing on stopping star running back Todd Gurley, the reigning NFL Offensive Player of the Year. That leaves QB Jared Goff to find one of his three reliable wideouts: Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, and Cooper Kupp. This team is an offensive juggernaut second to only Showtime Mahomes and the Chiefs.
Vikings vs. Rams ATS Pick & Other Betting Predictions
The Rams are one of three undefeated teams in the league. The Vikings are on the road after a big home loss to a HUGE underdog. Combine that with a short week and all signs point to a Rams win and cover.
