Randy Moss makes his return to New England this week as the Minnesota Vikings visit the Patriots in football betting.
Moss would have been the headline story this week for this game in NFL football betting but Brett Favre stole his spotlight. Favre has an ankle injury so his status is up in the air for Sunday but whether he plays or not, the Vikings will be underdogs at New England.
For some unknown reason the odds makers took this game off the board. It is likely that New England will be a five point favorite in the game at Sbgglobal. I mean who really cares if Favre plays or not. He is not worth taking a game off the board. The Vikings would actually be better off if Favre doesn’t play. Tarvaris Jackson is not a great quarterback but at least he doesn’t throw stupid interceptions that cost his team the game. Favre has said he may try and play this week. That is too bad for the Vikings if that is the case.
While the Vikings are finding ways to lose with Brett Favre, the Patriots are finding ways to win with Tom Brady. The Patriots are 5-1 this season even though their defense is nothing special. Brady doesn’t have Moss to throw to anymore but he still finds ways to get the job done.
Vikes Worth a Play if Jackson Starts
If Favre can’t go in this game then the Vikings are worth a play. Minnesota has been competitive all season but Favre has been giving games away. If Jackson gets the start then Adrian Peterson will have a big game and Jackson will play well enough for Minnesota to win. The Patriots have been winning games but it is not like they are blowing teams out.
