Even though the New Orleans Saints are unbeaten, many people believe the Vikings are the best team in the NFL. They are 5-point pro football betting favorites against Arizona with a total of 48.
NFL betting has this being a matchup of two future Hall of Fame quarterbacks. Brett Favre is having an MVP season while Kurt Warner continues to play at a high level when he is healthy. He missed last week’s game due to a concussion but he is hopeful to play in this game. Arizona will be hoping that Warner passes all of the tests so that he can play. They are simply not the same team with backup Matt Leinart at quarterback.
Minnesota has been so good this NFL betting season that they can clinch the NFC North with a win and a Green Bay loss. The Vikings are loaded offensively with Favre throwing it to Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin and Visanthe Shiancoe and they have the best running back in the league in Adrian Peterson. "We know what we're doing with the pass game. We trust what we're doing with the pass game, the protection game," head coach Brad Childress said. "Let's move it this way."
The last time Minnesota and Arizona played was last December as Adrian Peterson had 165 yards in a 35-14 Minnesota NFL betting victory. The Vikings have excellent NFL betting numbers this season. They are 3-0-1 in NFL betting in their last 4 games overall and 5-0-1 in pro football betting in their last 6 vs. the NFC. They are also 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. The Vikings are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games as an NFL betting favorite. The only concern if you are backing the Vikings in pro football betting is that the Vikings are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games in December. Minnesota is 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings against Arizona.
Arizona has been a very good NFL betting underdog. The Cardinals are 7-1 vs. the NFL betting line in their last 8 games as an underdog. The Cardinals are 11-5 in NFL betting in their last 16 games overall.
