One of the best football betting online matchups of the year is upon us as the Panthers are set to host the Vikings this weekend. This matchup is extremely intriguing on paper as both of these teams match up very well against one another. Furthermore, the fact that the end of the season is in sight means that both of these teams will be giving it their all this Sunday. So, let’s take a look at what the NFL teaser odds are predicting for this Minnesota Vikings vs. Carolina Panthers matchup.

Football Betting Online Odds:

The Vikings charge into this Week 14 pairing sporting a 10-2 record that ranks them as the best team in the NFC North. The biggest threat to the Vikings at the moment is the Detroit Lions, who are 6-6 on the year and own a win over Minnesota. However, it seems extremely unlikely that the Vikings will close out the 2017 regular season by losing 4 in a row. Now with the way their defense has been playing and not with the tremendous luck the franchise has been having with their backups. The football betting online odds are pegging Minnesota as a favorite over Carolina. Mostly because of the fact that the Vikings wield a much better offense than the Panthers.
Minnesota enter this Sunday’s pairing with the NFL’s 11th best scoring offense, 5th best total offense, 13th best passing offense and 6th best running attack. Comparatively, the Panthers come into this matchup with the 16th best scoring offense, 18th best total offense, 25th best passing attack and 5th best running game. Since the Vikings rank 2nd in total defense, 10th against the pass and 2nd against the run: it’s no understatement to say that Minnesota has the better defensive unit as well. In conclusion, there’s no question that the Vikings are the better team in this matchup.
The Panthers pounce into this one with an 8-4 record that ranks Carolina 2nd in the NFC South. Recently, this past weekend to be exact, the Panthers came up short against the Saints 31-21. This put a nail in Carolina’s hopes of winning the division, since New Orleans now leads the South at 9-.3. Additionally, the Saints own 2 wins over the Panthers, making Carolina’s path at redemption impossible. Nevertheless, the Panthers can still clinch a Wild Card berth – something they’ll be looking to do this weekend.
Players placing a bet on the NFL parlay odds this weekend should consider betting the spread on this one. Minnesota has posted a 9-3 record against the spread this season while the Panthers are 2-2-1 ATS at home. With this in mind, it’s clear that backing the away team on the spread is one of this Minnesota Vikings vs. Carolina Panthers matchup’s better betting options.
