Minnesota needed a victory in its season finale against the Packers just to get into the playoffs and it came up big in a 37-34 shootout as a three-point underdog at home. It will now have to do it again this week as an underdog on the road. The Vikings finished the regular season 10-6 after winning just three games in 2011 so anything is possible on a team that does not know the word quit.

Tons will be on the line on Sunday afternoon at the HHH Metrodome for NFL betting fans, as the Minnesota Vikings play host to the Green Bay Packers in what might amount to be one of the most crucial regular season games that we have seen in years.
Minnesota started the season like a house on fire with four straight-up wins in their first five games, but those flames have been doused with just one victory in its last four. The Vikings are now an even 6-5 SU on the year and 4-6-1 against the spread. The total has gone OVER in three of its last four games.
The Chicago Bears jumped out to a 7-1 start, and they had a nice lead in the NFC North. The team has dropped two straight, and they are now tied atop the division with the Green Bay Packers. Minnesota is only one game behind, and the Vikings will be looking to even things up with the Bears as they visit Soldier Field this weekend. Let’s take a look at this key divisional matchup.
The battle on the NFL odds in the NFC North will be hot and heavy on Sunday afternoon at the Metrodome, where the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions battle it out for playoff positioning.
The Vikings are really falling from grace and have been over the course of the last several weeks. They were beaten by the Seattle Seahawks last week 30-20 on the road, which knocked them to the wrong side of the playoff picture for the first time all year long.
Minnesota comes into this matchup looking to keep pace with Chicago in the NFC North after posting a surprising 5-3 straight-up record in the first half of the regular season. It is 3-4-1 against the spread this year with the total staying UNDER in five of its last seven games.
The turnaround in fortunes has been led by a resurgent Adrian Peterson, who has successfully returned from a torn ACL to rush for a league-high 775 yards so far.

Longest Touchdown of the Game Over 41.5 Yards (-115): It’s a risky play to make in this one, but it seems to be the play that is going to cash more often than not. We have seen WR Percy Harvin do some insane things on special teams, and we have seen defensive players like DB Ronde Barber take a pick 75 yards back for a touchdown without batting an eyelash.
The Minnesota Vikings hope to continue to be the surprising team of the NFC on the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football this week when they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Bucs might be just 2-4 this year, but they are showing some spunk for sure and will pick off teams like this one if they aren’t careful.
NFC North foes battle it out in what is becoming one of the most intriguing games of the week in NFL betting action, as the Detroit Lions will fight it out with the Minnesota Vikings.
Sure, we’re only a few games into the season, but the Vikings all of a sudden might find themselves in the thick of the playoff race, especially if they can figure out how to win this game. Taking QB Christian Ponder in the first round of the NFL Draft was considered a massive reach, but perhaps Minnesota knew what it was doing.
