For the second week in a row we’re treated to a good old-fashioned NFC North rivalry as the Packers host the Vikings from Lambeau Field.
Green Bay have enjoyed an extended break following their season opening win in Chicago against the Bears and have since opened as -3.0-point favourites at home. The offence was hardly what we’ve come to expect with Aaron Rodgers under center, but Mike Pettine’s defence put the whole league on notice as the Packers held Chicago to just three points on the road.
Minnesota also changed things up as they made easy work of the Falcons at home. The Vikings dropped back to pass only 10 times during the game, much to the delight of head coach Mike Zimmer.
Running back Dalvin Cook enjoyed a monster day against Atlanta running for 111-yards and two touchdowns, but the Vikings will need to get creative this week if they wish to penetrate Green Bay’s interior defence.
The Packers did a great job of dialing up pressure on Mitch Trubisky last week, particularly in the late stages. The secondary also played with real energy on the road, which should provide a big contest against Minnesota’s elite receivers.
There was nothing separating these two sides last year at Lambeau as a last-minute flag helped the Vikings to a game-tying field goal in the late stages.
Minnesota has a knack for bringing out the worst in Rodgers, and although a draw seems unlikely this time around, the Vikings’ 5-2 record against the spread looks to be the play.
Tip: Minnesota Vikings at $2.34
