Online Football Betting Odds:
Minnesota charges into this Week 13 contest sporting a 6-4-1 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the NFC North. With the 8-3 Chicago Bears currently leading the division, Minnesota isn’t too far behind a No. 1 ranking in the division. But since Minnesota is 2-2 in their last 4 matchups, they’ll need a bit of a turnaround to climb the divisional ladder. On top of that, they’re pegged against one of the top dogs out of the AFC. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear this is one heck of a matchup. The Vikes are currently averaging 24.1 per game, which is less than the 27.9 that New England delivers each game. Defensively things are even tighter with Minnesota giving up 22.4 per matchup and the Pats allotting 22.6 to their opponents. Ultimately this matchup will come down to whoever can make better plays over the other.
Players to Watch: Kirk Cousins (3,289 passing yards, 22 TD, 7 INT), Latavius Murray (455 rushing yards, 5 TD, 0 F), and Adam Thielen (1,138 receiving yards, 8 TD, 1 F).
New England Patriots
The Pats rush into this Sunday’s action sporting a 8-3 record that pegs them as the best team in the AFC East. With the 5-6 Miami Dolphins being the biggest threat in the division for New England, it’s safe to say that the Pats have the AFC East all locked up. As for this weekend’s contest, the Pats are 4-2 in their last 6 against Minnesota and will be vying to maintain that trend in Week 13. Ultimately it’s hard to imagine a team led by Kirk Cousins actually getting the better of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, especially with the latter playing at home.
Players to Watch: Tom Brady (3,031 passing yards, 19 TD, 7 INT), Sony Michel (586 rushing yards, 5 TD, 1 F), and James White (567 receiving yards, 6 TD, 67 REC).
