NFL Free Pick: Take Green Bay. According to latest NFL trends, the Packers are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven meetings with the Vikings and 4-0 ATS in their last four games versus a team with a losing record. Green Bay is also 4-1 ATS in its last five games overall, 25-9 ATS in its last 34 division games and 9-4 ATS in its last 13 games versus NFC opponents. On the other side, the Vikings are -14 against the spread in their last five games versus NFC opponents and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall.
The Vikings were forced to turn back to Christian Ponder at quarterback because Josh Freeman has a concussion. It won't matter. Adrian Peterson is banged up and their defense won't stop Aaron Rodgers, even without Jermichael Finley, James Jones and Randall Cobb.
