Chargers vs. Vikings Pick

NFL Preseason Picks San Diego Chargers vs. Minnesota Vikings 8/28/16

Will the Minnesota Vikings be able to pick up another preseason win when they host the San Diego Chargers at 1PM ET?

According to the oddsmakers at BetDSI, Minnesota is favored to win today’s game, as the Vikings are getting odds of -6 points against the Chargers. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 41 points.

Bet on NFL Preseason Week 3

The Vikings have won their first two preseason games, beating the Bengals 17-16 and then beating the Seahawks 18-11. The Vikings won last week without Teddy Bridgewater or Adrian Peterson seeing any action. Bridgewater should play today, but Peterson won’t be. The key to Minnesota’s wins have been defense. They held the Seahawks to just 140 passing yards while picking up six sacks.

The Chargers are coming off a 19-3 win over the Cardinals last week. They will be without Philip Rivers in today’s game, but San Diego had 239 passing yards in last week’s win over Arizona. The issue for them is still running the ball, as they had just 46 yards on 27 carries. That has been a problem dating back to last season and doesn’t look much better.

The Vikings have been able to win without their stars and at least have Bridgewater today against a suspect defense. For San Diego, they will still be without their QB and they can’t run the ball. That should allow the Vikings to control the scoreboard early on. Look for Minnesota to get past the Chargers without much difficulty today.
