Pro football betting handicappers are also becoming concerned about a Green Bay Packers team that has lost their last 3 NFL sports betting matchups.
NBC Sunday Night Football will feature Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings at the Green Bay Packers in a NFC North rivalry matchup. Sports-Gambling opened with Green Bay as a 3 point home favorite and with an over/under of 44.5.
The Minnesota Vikings have a NFL betting record of 2-3 both straight up and against the spread. Minnesota won a virtual playoff game last week at home over Dallas 24-21 to stave off a 1-4 start to the season.
Brett Favre is coming off his best performance of the season but the cloud of this week’s NFL investigation into his personal conduct does not garner the right kind of attention or focus needed. The Vikings rank a poor 27th in scoring and most of their offense has come from Adrian Peterson’s 553 yards rushing. The defense ranks 5th in the NFL.
The Green Bay Packers have a NFL gambling record of 3-3 straight up and 4-2 against the spread with 5 of their games going under the number. The loss of running back Ryan Grant has put the burden of the offense on quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who has not responded well and has seen erosion in his effectiveness.
Special teams remain a major concern with Green Bay.
Minnesota has gotten the money in just 3 out of their last 17 pro football betting matchups as a dog of 3 points or less. Green Bay is 17-8 against the spread versus the NFC North.
The Vikings have gone over the total in 8 of their last 10 when coming off a straight up win while the Packers have gone over the total in 7 out of their last 9 as a home favorite of 3 points or less. The road team has paid out in 12 of the last 16 games in this series with the dog biting in 17 out of the last 22 between these two teams.
Minnesota has gotten the money in 8 out of their last 10 trips to Green Bay and the series has gone over the total 4 straight times.
