Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings NFL Week 1 Odds and Best Bets

Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings NFL Betting Odds and Preview

Matt LaFleur had one of the best rookie seasons for an NFL coach in history. LaFleur led the Packers to a 13-3 season and berth in the NFC Championship Game. Following two consecutive losing seasons, Green Bay fans were grateful. But a lot of that goodwill was tossed out the window at San Francisco. To illustrate the Packers were mauled in a 37-20 NFL betting loss. They were outed as nowhere near Super Bowl ready. In like manner, the Minnesota Vikings were dominated at the 49ers the week before. Now, these playoff losers open the 2020 season.

Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings CashBet Wagering Analysis

By reason of their generational fan base and national following does Green Bay attract top online sportsbook action. Few teams are as popular with gamblers as the Packers. Tradition, history, and recent success feed into that. Minnesota is not nearly as popular. Summing up the Vikings are often a source of frustration with gamblers. Minnesota has been frequent chalk to win the Super Bowl. Commencing with that playoff loss to the 49ers is a perpetual letdown. Both of these teams are seen as even in the eyes of gamblers. Home field price may cancel Packer popularity.

Clouds in Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood

 Last spring Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers begged management for a playmaking receiver. Instead Green Bay drafted his eventual replacement.

Consider that 13 receivers were drafted in the first two rounds. Not one of them by Green Bay.

Of major concern is a defense that was mauled and rendered helpless at San Francisco. Lack of fight and effort was noticed. And a source of irritation to LaFleur. It is true that Green Bay rapidly improved. But the football betting breaks and bounces all went their way. Contrarily that’s hard to duplicate two years in a row.

Cousins Charged to Deliver on Promise

Minnesota caught pro football betting Attention by drafting 15 players. Admittedly the Vikings say their roster is going through “evolution.” Quarterback Kirk Cousins was acquired two years ago as the missing Super Bowl piece. Although he improved down the stretch its unfulfilling. Despite the fact, he finished strong Cousins is charged with winning it all.
