Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Patriots are 5-point favorites to beat the Vikings. The total, meanwhile, sits at 49 points. As of this writing, 57% of the public betting tickets are on the Patriots to cover the point spread.

Minnesota Vikings

Kirk Cousins completed 29-of-38 passes for 342 yards and three touchdowns in the Vikings' Week 12 win over the Packers. Cousins had his way with an injury-ravaged Packers secondary, throwing just nine incompletions. He hit Dalvin Cook and Stefon Diggs for long touchdowns, with his final one coming on a red-zone strike to Adam Thielen in the third quarter. Cousins had been under some heat after a rough three-game stretch, so it's a needed bounceback. The Vikings get a matchup with the Patriots in Week 13.

New England Patriots

Tom Brady (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice. We can't remember the last time Brady was a full participant at practice. He's not in danger of missing Sunday's showdown with Minnesota. It's not an ideal matchup for Brady, though he'll still be in play as a lower-end QB1 for the final week of the fantasy regular season.

NFL Betting Trends

Minnesota

The over is 5-1 in the Vikings’ last six road games.

New England

The under is 6-1 in the Patriots’ last seven games played in the month of December.

Prediction

The under is 5-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams, is 4-0 in the Patriots’ last four games overall and is 9-3 in New England’s last 12 games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in its previous game. The under is also 4-1 in the Vikings’ last five games played in December. This hasn’t been Brady’s best season and while the Vikings were better statistically a year ago on defense, they still have a unit capable of slowing down a banged-up New England offense. I like the under.
