Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings Odds

The Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings odds were sitting at Vikings -4 ½ on Monday afternoon, quite a leap from the -3 ½ line previously being offered at online sportsbooks like BetUS.com.

The analysts at BetUS.com broke this one down for us:

"For all the nauseating talk surrounding Favre's first matchup against Green Bay, getting a handle on the quarterbacks should be the least of handicappers' concerns for the Monday nighter between the Vikings (3-0, 2-1 ATS) and Packers (2-1, 2-1 ATS).

"How Favre and Aaron Rodgers play matters, of course, but the more important battle is happening in the trenches. Namely, how is Green Bay going to slow down Minnesota's defensive line? How are the Packers going to slow down Adrian Peterson, the league's leading rusher?

The Packers have allowed 12 sacks this season, and that doesn't bode well heading into what will be a raucous Metrodome on Monday night. On the personnel front, left tackle Chad Clifton is expected to miss his second straight game with a sprained left ankle for Green Bay.

"If he can't go, the Packers will be forced to start Daryn Colledge opposite Vikes' sack machine Jared Allen. Green Bay's offensive line has proven to be mediocre at the best of times this season, so it could be in serious trouble against Minnesota.

"On the other side of the ball, the Packers have allowed three consecutive 100-yard rushers, putting pressure on their defense to step up against Peterson. The dynamic running back led the NFL with 357 yards on the ground before Sunday's games, and was second with four touchdowns. Peterson lit up Green Bay's defense in Minny's 28-27 win at the Metrodome when the rivals met last season, rambling for 192 yards in the Packers' payday as 2.5-point underdogs."

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.
