The Vikings have looked superb so far with Adrian Peterson and Brett Favre while the 49ers have been stout defensively under head coach Mike Singletary. NFL betting has the Vikings as a TD favorite in this game.
NFL bet numbers have Minnesota favored by 7 points with a total of 40.5 against the 49ers. The NFL bet matchup should be interesting as Minnesota’s offense goes up against San Francisco’s defense. While head coach Mike Singletary is happy to be 2-0 he knows that going to Minnesota and winning will be tough. “I think the biggest thing for us is each and every day we want to continue to get better.” He said, “This week, we have the Minnesota Vikings at hand. It’s very exciting for us. Once again, it’s a tremendous challenge and I’m just looking forward to go there and see where we are.”
Last week in the NFL bet win over the Lions, Brett Favre made his 271st consecutive start, breaking the record of 270 that was set by Vikings defensive end Jim Marshall. Running back Adrian Peterson had 92 rushing yards and now has 272 rushing yards through the first 2 games, breaking the Vikings record for the most rushing yards in the first 2 games of a season.
Wide receiver Percy Harvin had two runs for 14 yards, 3 kickoff returns for 79 yards and 5 receptions for 41 yards and a touchdown in the NFL bet win over Detroit.
San Francisco has been a very good NFL bet underdog of late. They are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog. The 49ers are also good in September for gamblers making an NFL bet as they are 4-1 in NFL betting in their last 5 games in September.
Minnesota has struggled somewhat at home against the NFL bet number as they are 1-4 in NFL betting in their last 5 home games. The one advantage for Minnesota in this NFL bet matchup is that the home team is 5-1 in NFL betting in the last 6 meetings.
Looking at the NFL bet total trends we see that the last four San Francisco road games have gone under. Four of the last five Minnesota games overall have gone under the NFL bet total.
