The Packers are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games and 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games overall. The Vikings are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games and 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The under is 7-0 in Packers last 7 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Vikings last 7 games overall. The underdog is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 meetings.
The Green Bay Packers defense has found its footing, and they’re quickly looking like the team to beat with Rodgers back under center and a defense that’s third in both total defense and scoring defense. The Minnesota Vikings got a big win last week in LA, but they’re still a team that’s hard to trust with a defense that gets gashed more times than not, a team that struggles to finish games. I don’t have confidence in the Vikings. I’ll lay the small chalk with the Packers.
