Minnesota Vikings vs. Philadelphia Eagles Tuesday Night Football Betting Odds

The odds on the Minnesota Vikings vs. Philadelphia Eagles Tuesday Night Football game haven’t changed much since this game was postponed from Sunday.  Sportsbook.com had Philadelphia as a -14.5 favorite with a total of 43.5.

A blizzard in Philadelphia has created a Tuesday Night Football matchup between the Vikings and Eagles. The extra rest could allow QB Brett Favre and RB Adrian Peterson to suit up after all. Favre (concussion) is still unlikely to play, but Peterson (thigh/knee) says he will start on Tuesday night. Philly’s star player, QB Michael Vick, also gets two more days to rest his injured leg. This will be the first Tuesday night NFL game since 1946.

If Favre is unable to go, the Vikings will once again put rookie Joe Webb under center. Webb’s first NFL start last week was a struggle, as he completed 15-of-26 passes for 129 and two interceptions. Peterson, who is second in the NFL with 1,481 total yards, missed last week’s game against Chicago with a bruised thigh. Rookie RB Toby Gerhart played well in Peterson’s absence, gaining 77 yards on 16 carries against a tough Bears defense. The Vikings offense has not tallied more than 300 yards in five of their past six games, carrying a 2-4 SU record over that span. The defense has played better of late, and now ranks sixth in the NFL in total defense, allowing just 308 YPG.

Philadelphia has no ordinary offense, piling up 404 YPG and 29.4 PPG this season. The Eagles have been on a roll in winning six of their past seven games. The last win came on Dec. 19 when they erased a 21-point, fourth-quarter deficit capped by DeSean Jackson’s game-winning punt return TD to stun the Giants. Vick has been incredible this season (103.6 QB rating, 20 TD, 5 INT), but RB LeSean McCoy has also been superb, leading the NFL with 1,587 yards from scrimmage.

Minnesota has lost six straight games in Philadelphia and five straight overall to the Eagles. The Vikings are also 0-8 ATS as an underdog this season.

83% at Sportsbook.com expect the Vikings to struggle in Phily again, as the favorite is a favorite everywhere it seems.
