At the onset of the offseason Green Bay made several front office and coordinator changes. However, head coach Mike McCarthy remained. Yet the Packers sloppy play has the heat increasing on McCarthy. Following last year’s flop, the head man may have been the lone survivor. But the Packers current Pro Football betting struggles could make him the first to get fired. It’s playoffs or bust for the coach and bust looks more probable. In the same way Minnesota has been a disappointment. Indeed, they were the NFC North favorite. But the Vikings are still in the wild card playoff hunt.

Green Bay Packers
Slumping Green Bay is fighting to stay out of the NFC North basement. Fashion the Packers mark of 4-5-1 straight up and against the spread with 6-4 over the total. Last week the Pack blew a 14-3 lead in a 27-24 loss at Seattle. It was the fourth time in six games that Green Bay failed to get the cash. In spite of the losing record the Packers do have improved metrics from 2017. Overall the Pack ranks eighth in the NFL for offense and 12th for defense. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a 102.2 rating with 19 touchdowns.
Minnesota is 5-4-1 straight up and against the spread with a 5-5 mark on totals. Last week the Vikings lost their biggest game of the season 25-20 at Chicago. As a result, Minnesota fell two games behind the Bears for the NFC North lead. Of major concern is a rushing attack ranked 31st in the NFL.
Stats to Consider
Green Bay has dropped in value as a Pro Football betting road dog lately. On the whole the Packers have paid in just two of their last six getting points on the road. Additionally, 10 of their last 12 in that role have gone over the total. Balanced against that is the Vikings subpar record laying points at home. Minnesota has paid out in just two of their last six as a home chalk. Six of their last eight as a favorite at US Bank Stadium have gone under the total.
Team vs. Team
Minnesota has been the superior sportsbook online value against Green Bay. To show the Vikings have covered four of the last six meetings in this head to head series. And six of the last eight between these teams have gone under the total. At Minnesota the Vikings have been even more valuable on the board against the Pack. Consider that the Purple Gang has paid in five of their last seven home tilts with Green Bay. Further, the last four in this series at US Bank Stadium went under the total.
Matchup to Watch
In this situation we have two inconsistent teams. Starting with defense does Minnesota have the Pro Football betting matchup edge. Soon McCarthy will find that there is no longer anyone to blame but himself. As has been noted the Vikings have the series edge at home.
