SBG Sportsbook NFL Pick - Packers to Cover Over Vikings

NFL football icon on fieldNFL football betting fans rejoice! Thursday is fast approaching and we couldn’t have asked for a more interesting game to have. The Minnesota Vikings +9 (-110) are facing with The Green Bay Packers -9 (-110).

Before Week 4, amidst the entire controversy surrounding the Vikings organization, this game was dreaded, as Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, despite not having a stellar start of the season, are still a team to be respected. However, in comes Teddy Bridgewater. The Vikings upcoming QB surprised us all with a huge victory against the Falcons. That same team that obliterated the Bucs a week before.

The Packers, on the other hand, at first were showing signs of weakness that had NFL Football Betting enthusiasts hesitant on the Packers’ season. But Rodgers is a pretty good Quarterback and those who doubt got a taste of his talent during the Packers huge win against the Bears, at Soldier Field mind you.

So, what does that mean for this Thursday’s game? Well, it might be a close one. And the outcome of the game will all depend on the matchup between Quarterbacks. The Up and coming Bridgewater against the seasoned Rogers.

There is two factors to be considered here, first Teddy Bridgewater’s injured ankle. The Vikings’ QB has been dealing with a sprained ankle that could limit or prevent him from playing, but early reports coming from Minnesota state that he will play, but there’s always the possibility of him being sidelined. Secondly, the Packers’ running game has not been able to produce for Green Bay, and Minnesota could be able to find a way to neutralize them on the ground forcing the Packers go to Rodgers.

But, it should be noted that in NFL football betting, Rodgers is player that could tip the scale entirely on the Packers favor. If we were to pick for this game, we would go with the Packers to cover the spread.
