The Green Bay Packers won’t have long to recover from last week's horrible showing against the Giants on Sunday night football, but at least this week will have the squad lining up against a similarly disheartened opponent when they host the Minnesota Vikings at 1:00pm EST from Lambeau Field on FOX. Vikings vs Packers odds at online sportsbooks and in Vegas have Green Bay betting favorites at home by 8-points against Minnesota while the over/under total is set at 46.5.The moneyline also favors a home win by the "Pack" laying -380 while a surprising road win for the "Vikes" would return a profitable +310 on a $100 wager. After their most recent loss to the Chicago Bears, the Vikings have reason to be doubtful about their chances of clawing their way into the playoffs. Bookmakers are also starting to wonder if the early Minnesota momentum might just not be enough. According to Vegas, as the NFC North grows tougher by the week, the Vikings are listed as 150/1 underdogs to win Super Bowl XLVII. This Sunday, however, Adrian Peterson and company will get one more chance to prove that they can hang with the offensive juggernauts that have dominated the division. Handicapping trends for Vikings vs Packers odds on Sunday have Green Bay betting favorites at home since recently going 5-1 SU, 18-2 SU when playing at Lambeau and 4-1 SU when playing Minnesota.
The Packers may be the sexier bet option, but that means nothing when it comes to betting on the NFL. Although Green Bay looks good enough to cover the spread on paper, it is important to note the Packers have also recently gone 2-4 ATS at home and 4-8 against the spread when playing Minnesota in Wisconsin. While it may be getting late for Minnesota to beat, catch up and leapfrog the two powerhouses ahead of them in the NFC North divisional standings (Green Bay, Chicago), that doesn’t mean they can’t cause trouble as the underdog. Vikings vs Packers odds have listed Minnesota as underdogs for the week 13 match-up having gone 6-5 SU, 4-6-1 ATS and a miserable 1-4 against the spread when plaing on the road. Handicapping trends also don't favor the Vikes to pull off the upset having gone 1-5 SU and 1-4 ATS when playing Green Bay at Lambeau.
