Vikings vs Broncos Prediction

Both teams have been Under teams this season with Minnesota 7-3 to the Under and Denver 5-4.

While Minnesota has been an Under machine overall when looking at NFL team trends, they are 2-0 to the Over their past two games. They’re also scorching hot from an against-the-spread perspective, having gone 5-0 ATS in their past five, all wins.

Since Denver’s defense has tightend up, so too have Under bets been cashing in their games. The Broncos are riding a 4-0 Under run. All three of their ATS wins have also come in their past three games, all wins.

A prime-time game finally went Over the total on TNF, but that still makes the Under 25-8.

When it comes to our Vikings vs Broncos picks we’ll go with the road underdog Vikings. Dobbs has been incredibly efficient with the football this season only throwing five interceptions and none so far with Minnesota. He, as well as tight end TJ Hockenson just had career days last week and star WR Justin Jefferson could make a return.

Brian Flores has the Vikings blitzing at the highest rate in the league (49%) and Russell Wilson has not performed well in that setting this season. The Broncos have also been a poor team to back in a favorites role being 2-10-1 ATS as a favorite in their last 13 games and 7-15-1 ATS as a favorite in their past 23.

Vikings vs Broncos Picks: Vikings +2.5
