Arizona Cardinals vs. Minnesota Vikings NFL Betting Online Picks
The Minnesota Vikings have been having a tumultuous, up and down season. They kicked things off by posting a 1-0-1 record through their first two games of the season, which wasn’t the worst thing they could have managed. However, since then, they’ve posted a 1-2 record. And although they’re coming off a win over the reigning Super Bowl champions, NFL betting online fans are still having a hard time measuring up this year’s Minnesota squad. So, what can we expect out of Kirk Cousins & Co. in this Sunday’s Arizona Cardinals vs. Minnesota Vikings matchup? Let’s take a look at the sportsbook betting odds to get a better idea.

The Cardinals fly into this Week 6 matchup sporting a 1-4 record that ranks them as the 3rd worst team in the NFC West. Had Arizona lost this past weekend’s matchup to the Niners, they would be the worst team in the division. Luckily, rookie Josh Rosen played well enough to earn the Cardinals their first win of the season on the road. Now they look to get another win against a much better team than San Francisco. The Niners were without Jimmy Garoppolo and didn’t have much of a chance of keeping up with the Cardinals. It was surprising to see Arizona rack up 28 points in their win however, since they had been struggling to put points on the board all season long. Nevertheless, Minnesota represents a respectable challenge for this offense. One that will help us truly measure what Arizona brings to the table.
Players to Watch: Josh Rosen (386 passing yards, 2 TD, 1 INT), David Johnson (242 rushing yards, 4 TD, 1 F), and Christian Kirk (234 receiving yards, 1 TD, 19 REC).
The Vikings are one of the more interesting teams in the NFL. Although most NFL football betting fans claim that the Vikings have one of the best defense in the NFL, other might not agree. After all, we saw Minnesota’s defense fail to show up in last year’s NFC Championship game. On top of that, Minnesota let the Los Angeles Rams score 38 on them in their Week 4 loss to Sean McVay’s crew. Nevertheless, the Vikings showed they are still an elite team by upsetting the Eagles 23-21 on the road. Now we’ll get to see just how tough this Minnesota defense is as they prepare to face an ailing 49ers squad.
Players to Watch: Kirk Cousins (1,688 passing yards, 11 TD, 2 INT), Latavius Murray (106 rushing yards, 0 TD, 0 F), and Adam Thielen (589 receiving yards, 3 TD, 47 REC).
