LINE: Packers -6.5. O/U: 43
Minnesota Vikings 7-7 SU,8-6 ATS
The Vikings are a mess. Last week Sam Bradford had a decent day (32-for-42 for 291 yards). However, the running game only had 34 yards, the offensive line allowed five sacks, and the defense surrendered 411 total offense. Week 15’s 34-6 loss to the Colts was arguably their ugliest defeat of the season.
They last faced their NFC North Division rival in Week 2, and they came out on top, 17-14. At that point of the season, as we may all remember, the Vikes looked invincible with Bradford rising and the defense being very menacing.
Minny will enter the game ranking 26th in passing (234 per game) and dead-last in rushing (70.5 per game).

Green Bay Packers 8-6 SU,6-7-1 ATS
The 30-27 win over the Bears extended their wining streak to four and kept their playoff hopes alive.
The offense was everywhere for the Pack, as they reached 451 total yards. Rodgers, just like he always does, connected with Jordy Nelson for much of the contest, generating seven catches for 124 yards. However, it was Ty Montgomery that had the most attention when the game concluded. The second-year back had 162 rushing yards on 10.1 yards per carry, along with two TD runs. The Vikings defense allowed Andrew Luck to complete 21 of his 28 passes and 33-year-old back Frank Gore to run for 101 yards.
The defense, meanwhile, will have to step up their pass defense. In their previous matchup, although they hit Bradford 16 times, he was still able to go 22-for-32 for 286 yards and two touchdowns.

Vikings vs Packers Betting Prediction: Packers -7
The Packers are getting healthy and the Vikings are floundering. This is one of those games that can go bad fast as the Vikings don’t have the ability to match the Packers in a high scoring game. It will only take a few deep passes by Rodgers and the Vikings will be making off season reservations for Hawaii.
