It seems every week that the public expects the Vikings to turn things around but so far it has not happened in NFL betting. Perhaps this is the week against an Arizona team who can’t find a starting quarterback.

The Vikings are laying more than a touchdown in this game. It might be that the public simply hates Arizona more than they love the Vikings. Arizona simply can’t get a quarterback to play well. Last week they lost 38-35 to Tampa Bay and neither Max Hall nor Derek Anderson played well. Anderson at least made some plays while Hall did nothing. The problem with Anderson is that he also makes bad plays and he did so against Tampa Bay as he threw two interceptions. Arizona’s defense didn’t play well either and they could have a tough day against Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota offense.
The Cardinals offense does look better with Anderson at quarterback. It also looks better now that Steve Breaston is back. His return takes some of the pressure off of Larry Fitzgerald. The Cardinals still can’t run the ball and that doesn’t figure to change against Minnesota’s defense. Arizona might be able to find some success throwing the ball as Minnesota’s secondary is not very good.
Brett Favre will probably get the start again at quarterback. He has been starting every game for more than a decade and he actually played half way decent last week. He has plenty of weapons with Percy Harvin and of course, the great Adrian Peterson. The Minnesota offense is way overdue for a breakout game and Arizona’s defense should be the perfect tonic.
Minnesota has won 7 of the last 10 in this series and they are 6-4 against the NFL betting online point spread. The teams played last year in Arizona and the Cardinals won 30-17.
