NFL Football Betting Odds:
The Vikings pounce into this MNF contest sporting a 6-5-1 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the NFC North. With the 8-4 Chicago Bears currently leading the division, it’s pretty clear that the Vikings still have a shot at winning the NFC North. Especially when considering that they’ll be closing out the season by facing Chicago at home. Granted, Minnesota will need to pull off this road upset come Monday. Fortunately for Minnesota, the Seahawks are 3-2 at home this season, so they’re not as dominant at home as they have been in year’s past. Nevertheless, the NFL football betting odds are still pegging Minnesota as an underdog here. All in all the Vikings aren’t putting up as good of numbers as Seattle is. Right now the Seahawks are scoring 26.6 per game and are giving up 21.6 to their opponent’s. For comparison, Minnesota is scoring 22.9 and allotting 22.5 to their opponents, placing them at a disadvantage this Monday night.
Players to Watch: Kirk Cousins (3,490 passing yards, 23 TD, 9 INT), Latavius Murray (466 rushing yards, 5 TD, 0 F), and Adam Thielen (1,166 receiving yards, 9 TD, 98 REC).
The Seahawks rush into this Week 14 match sporting a 7-5 record that ranks them 2nd in the NFC West. With the 11-1 Rams having already clinched the division, Seattle’s playoff hopes rest on a Wild Card berth. Fortunately for Seattle they’re currently sitting on the 5th seed in the NFC. If things stay as they are, Seattle will be facing Dallas in the first round of the playoffs, adding further intrigue to this MNF matchup. Right now the Vikings are in the running for a Wild Card berth but if they snatch the division out from under the Bears, they could end up facing Seattle in the opening round of the postseason.
Players to Watch: Russell Wilson (2,716 passing yards, 29 TD, 5 INT), Chris Carson (704 rushing yards, 4 TD, 3 F), and Tyler Lockett (713 receiving yards, 9 TD, 44 REC).
