Packers vs Vikings Betting Picks and Preview
NFL Week 7: Packers @ Vikings
Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings Sun. Oct. 23, 2011 4:15 p.m. EST
At this point in the NFL regular season, the consensus is that the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers are without a doubt the best all-around team in the NFL. With an offense that seems unstoppable with quarterback Aaron Rodgers under center and a defense that has been good enough to hold leads all season long, the Packers are the only undefeated team left in the league and could be ready to run the table.
In Week 7, the Green Bay Packers will be put in another easy-win situation in which they should cruise to victory and improve their flawless record to 7-0. The only disadvantage that the cheese heads will have in Week 7 is that they will have to play this NFC North division showdown against the Minnesota Vikings on the road.
Even though the Vikings have been able to give the Packers a run for their money the past two years with former cheese head Brett Favre under center, this season is much different as Donovan McNabb has turned out to be a bust and head coach Leslie Frazier has decided to give rookie Christian Ponder a shot under center.
I’m not quite sure why Frazier picked this week to make the change considering that the Vikings will be playing against the best team in the league, but that is what he has done as Ponder will get the start against the Packers.
As of right now, the Green Bay Packers have been favored to get the win over the Minnesota Vikings with a -9 point spread. Take the Packers at -9.
