These are my keys to the game tonight between Minnesota and Washington:
Vikings are 5-2. Skins are 1-6.
The Skins are coming off a shutout loss to the Niners.
Vikings won a divisional game in a high scoring contest against the Lions.
Vikings are the favorite at -16.5.
The over/under total is 41.5.
The money line is Vikings -1200 and Skins +800.
The Vikings are the home team.
There are many story lines about this game. Kirk Cousins starting at quarterback against his former team. Case Keenum in a similar position. Both will want to prove the teams that they left should have committed to them. Adrian Peterson was the dominate runner in the NFL for more than a decade while with Minnesota.
The prop bet that looks appealing is Cousins over 245 in passing yardage. The price at -112.
The QB match up of Keenum against Cousins should get attention. Cousins should win. He is minus 148 while Keenum is +120. Cousins has gone over 300 yards in his last two games.
I have a lean toward the Vikings to win this game. My play would be to lay the points.
