The New York Giants (8-4 SU, 6-6 ATS, 7-5 O/U) and Minnesota Vikings (5-7 SU, 4-8 ATS, 6-6 O/U) will both be looking to extend their respective two-game winning streaks when they take to the gridiron at The Metrodome, but only one team will walk away victorious and my NFL sports betting picks on this matchup will point gridiron gamblers in the right direction toward making a potentially winning wager on what looks like an entertaining affair waiting to happen.

NFL Odds

New York Giants -3

Over/Under 43

Here is a look at the key head-to-head trends surrounding this matchup.

•Giants are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Minnesota.

•Underdog is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.

•Road team is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings.

New York 411

•Giants are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games as a road favorite of 0.5-3.0.

•Giants are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.

•Giants are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games as a road favorite.

The Giants are coming off a convincing 31-7 rout over the Washington Redskins that helped them snap a three-game ATS losing streak by cashing in against the NFL Odds a 7-point NFL sports betting picks selection.

Running backs, Brandon Jacobs (103 yards) and Ahmad Bradshaw (97 yards) each rushed for two touchdowns.

Minnesota 411

•Vikings are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 home games.

•Vikings are 0-5 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.

•Vikings are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog.

Minnesota rolled to a convincing 38-14 win over Buffalo in their Week 13 matchup to easily cover the spread as a 5-point NFL sports betting picks home favorite as gifted running back Adrian Peterson rushed 16 times for 107 yards and three touchdowns.

Analysis: I know the Minnesota Vikings picked up a win by spanking the lowly Bills last week, but the fact of the matter is that were they playing any team with half of a pulse, they likely would have taken another loss as Tavaris Jackson threw three interceptions to almost foil Adrian Peterson’s big day.

I like the way New York is playing right now as they are looking eerily similar to their Super Bowl team of a couple of years ago. New York is running the ball down their opponents throats while getting just enough passing production out of Eli Manning in order to keep defenses honest while getting some absolutely jaw-dropping play from its powerful defensive line.

Prediction: I like the G-Men to win this contest outright and cash in as my NFL sports betting picks selection by keeping Adrian Peterson mostly in check and beating the snot out of either Brett Favre or Tavaris Jackson.

NFL Picks: New York Giants -3 Points

FanDuel "Act of God" Clause Could Cancel College Football Futures

Many sportsbooks have stopped taking bets on college football in light of the Big 10 and PAC 12 cancelling their fall seasons.

With the Big 10 and PAC 12 officially cancelling their college football slate this fall, one has to wonder how this will impact the sportsbooks bottom line.  Of course, attempts to play in the spring would likely more than make up for any losses down the road.
