Monday Night Football: Mims picks Packers vs Vikings and likes an Aaron Jones prop bet

Robert Mims

These are my key factors for the game between the Green Bay and Minnesota:

  • The Packers are 11-3 and the Vikings are 10-4.

  • This is a battle that will decide the division winner and the wild card team.

  • The Packers are coming in after defeating the Bears 21-13.

  • The Vikings defeated the Chargers 39-10.

  • The Vikings are the favorite at -5.5.

  • The over/under total is 47.

  • The money line is Vikings -210 and Packers +180.

  • The Vikings are the home team.

  • Green Bay won the 1st matchup with Minnesota by a score of 21-16.

Kirk Cousins is playing exceptionally well. He has completed 73% of his passes in his last 5 games. Aaron Rodgers is playing subpar for his standards. During the last 5 games. He has 7 TDs and no interception. Four of those TDs came against the Giants.

The prop bet that will make this game interesting is the rushing yardage of Aaron Jones. His total is listed at 58.5. The price is -112. I project that he goes over.

I have a lean toward the under. Any team in a division game that mean something will play a chess match against each other. Dalvin Cook is out, so the Packers can concentrate on stopping the pass. I am 18-10 in my selections on NFL Monday and Thursday. So far 90% of the bets on Fanduel are on the Packers
