Minnesota is coming off a crushing 24-28 loss at Green Bay as their NFL football betting record fell to 2-4 both straight up and against the spread. Quarterback Brett Favre could finally miss a start at quarterback this week as he is listed as doubtful due to an ankle injury.
Favre has been bad all season and threw 3 interceptions at Green Bay including a devastating “pick six” and drew criticism from coach Brad Childress. Adrian Peterson has been the bright spot of the offense with 684 yards and the defense has been solid ranking 6th overall. Favre’s turnovers have been the decisive factor in the bad start.
New England has a betting on NFL football record of 5-1 straight up and 3-2-1 against the spread. The Patriots have gone over the total in 4 out of 6 games. The Patriots are riding a 4 game winning streak and are ranked 1st in scoring.
The defense is slowly improving and ranks 22nd for points allowed. Last week the Pats held on for a 23-20 win at San Diego. Tom Brady ranks 5th in the NFL for quarterback rating at 96.0.
Minnesota has paid out in 10 of their last 13 with the NFL gambling odds after coming off a straight up loss. The Vikings have gotten the money in just 1 of their last 7 games on the road.
