Vikings to win (-140*) has a 58% probability
The Packers may have won the last two games between these two, but with additions including Yannkick Ngakoue and Michael Pierce, our model has the Vikings as the likely winners in this one.
Packers +2.5 has a 50% probability
Right now our model can’t split these two at the spread, which just shows that it is agreeing strongly with the sportsbooks. Our spread pick right now is the Packers due to the fact that there are slightly better odds out there. If the spread moves from 2.5 either way, it’s worth a play to the team that move favors.
Total Points u45.5 has a 52% probability
The last three results between these teams have all fallen under 45.5 points and with our data currently projecting a 21:23 final score, the under is definitely the play here.
