Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings Betting Odds

Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings betting odds have moved little in recent days after opening at Vikings -3 ½.  Those looking to place a bet on the Vikings might want to consider doing so at SBG Global, which, heading into Friday, had a line of -3SBG Global was one of the only books to offer a -3 point line on what will likely be the most "in demand" bet of the NFL season thus far.

The Vikings were now getting 70 percent of the action in this game so it doesn't surprise us that Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas would move the line up to -4.

As much as the two quarterbacks will be talked about before the game, the outcome could be determined by the play of the league's leading rusher. Peterson is averaging 6.1 yards per carry and already has four rushing touchdowns, numbers which could improve against Green Bay's 23rd ranked rush defense.

Part of the reason Green Bay felt comfortable with Brett Favre's initial retirement was the presence of Aaron Rodgers, and the second-year starter - who sat behind Favre for three years - has thrown four touchdowns without an interception.

He's only completed 56.7 percent of his passes, but Rodgers helped the Packers bounce back from a home loss to Cincinnati with a big effort Sunday in their road opener. He threw for 269 yards and two scores in Green Bay's 36-17 rout of St. Louis.

"(My offensive line) really gave me some time," Rodgers said. "I was able to move in the pocket."

Rodgers was sacked twice against the Rams after being taken down 10 times in the first two games, and he could have some help from Chad Clifton on Monday. Clifton, a 2007 Pro Bowler, sprained his right ankle against the Bengals and sat last week, but could play Monday.

The Vikings are fourth in total defense, allowing 259.7 yards per game, and have eight sacks, with Jared Allen's two leading the way. Allen also has two forced fumbles.

Some important Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings betting odds trends to consider:

Green Bay has won five of the last six in this series. 

Minnesota has won the last game in this series, but only by a single point.

Minnesota has only beaten Green Bay by more than the current spread once in ten meetings. 

The Packers are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. NFC North.

The Packers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog of 3.5-10.0.

The Packers are 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 road games.

The Vikings are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.

The Vikings are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 vs. NFC North.

The Vikings are 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games following a S.U. win.

The Vikings are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games after allowing less than 250 total yards in their previous game.

It is important to note that Brett Favre is on Minnesota's injury report for the first time this season.

The 39-year-old quarterback was listed Thursday as being limited in practice because of a foot injury.

After the Vikings beat San Francisco last Sunday, Favre complained of aching in his right foot, left knee, both shoulders and neck.

Gambling911.com will be all over the Green Bay Packers but at +3 ½, which is still being offered by most online sportsbooks at press time.

Bookmakers expect this to be one of the most heavily wagered on games of the NFL season to date when all is said and done.
