PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, 63% of public bets are on the Vikings but 56% of the money in this matchup is on the Packers to cover the 9 points.

INJURY REPORT: For the Vikings, safety Andrew Sendejo (ankle), Tramaine Brock (foot), receiver Jarius Wright (foot), offensive tackle Riley Reiff, and center Pat Elflein (shoulder) are all questionable for Saturday night.

Meanwhile, Aaron Rodgers was placed on injured reserve after the Falcons eliminated the Packers from playoff contention with their 24-21 win over the Buccaneers on Monday night. Brett Hundley will re-enter the starting lineup so Rodgers (shoulder) can get on the mend.

Jake Ryan (knee), Quinton Dial (knee), Nick Perry (shoulder), Jahri Evans (knee), Clay Matthews (hamstring), and Davante Adams (concussion) are all questionable.

OUR PREDICTION: The under has been a great bet in this series, cashing in five of the last six meetings between these two teams. The under is also 16-5 in the Vikings' last 21 games versus divisional opponents, is 11-5 in their last 16 games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game, and is 34-16 in their last 50 games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game.
