Minnesota Vikings vs Green Bay Packers Odds
The Minnesota Vikings come off their bye week with a huge task on their hands - defeating the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.
Not surprisingly, the Pack opened as 14-point home chalk in this NFC North battle which has seen primarily OVERs recently (6-1 past 7 head-to-head meetings). The OVER has also prevailed for NFL totals bettors when the Vikes come off a bye (11-2 past 13 years).
