NFL betting holds a lot of intrigue on Monday night as Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings host the Green Bay Packers.
Things could not have gone much better for the Vikings in pro football betting than they have so far this season as they are 3-0 with Favre at the helm.
NFL betting has the Vikings as a 3 point favorite with a total of 45. Much of the hoopla on Monday in the ESPN televised contest will be focused on Favre facing his former team for the first time. It should be a great pro football betting matchup since Favre is playing well having thrown five TDs and only one interception while Adrian Peterson is leading the league in rushing. There is no question that this is a huge game in NFL betting and will draw a lot of attention. "It’ll be a big game for a lot of reasons," said Favre, "They are a good football team. We’re going to have to play better than we did today to win it – to win any games."
Green Bay has Aaron Rodgers and he continues to play well. He has thrown four TD passes this NFL betting season and has no interceptions. He was very efficient last week as the Packers routed the Rams in NFL betting. "(My offensive line) really gave me some time," Rodgers said. "I was able to move in the pocket." He will get tested on Monday by a Minnesota defense that is fourth in total defense as NFL betting stats show.
The Vikings have not started an NFL betting season at 4-0 since the 2003 season. "I think everybody knows what’s at stake, and more importantly we’re on a roll right now," linebacker Ben Leber said. "I know that we want to go out and fight for Brett and get a win for him, but at the same time we want to be 4-0. It’s been a huge motivation for us to be 4-0 and just keep this streak going. That’s our main concern."
As you look at this pro football betting matchup there are a lot of reasons to like Green Bay. The Packers are 7-1 in NFL betting in their last 8 vs. the NFC North. The Packers are 15-5-1 in pro football betting in their last 21 road games.
Minnesota has some troubling NFL betting trends. The Vikings are 2-6 in NFL betting in their last 8 vs. NFC North. The Vikings are 1-4 in NFL betting in their last 5 games as a home favorite.
