Play of the Day: Green Bay Packers to COVER -2.5 vs. Minnesota Vikings (-120)
Since Aaron Rodgers became the full-time starter in 2008, the Packers have a higher winning percentage, against the spread as a home favorite, than any other team in the league. Simply put, Rodgers and the Packers don’t disappoint in that spot very often. Additionally, Green Bay is 41-28 ATS in divisional games over the same span, whereas the Vikings are a pedestrian 15-15 ATS against the NFC North under Mike Zimmer. Gary Kubiak made it pretty clear that the Minnesota offense will run through Dalvin Cook this season and optimally, Kirk Cousins won’t have to outgun Rogers in a shout out. This Packers run defense held the Bears to 46 rushing yards in Week 1, though and held Mitchell Trubisky to 208 yards through the air. If that’s the formula again on Sunday, Kubiak is going to hope Cousins can shoulder more of the load than he did against Atlanta.
Despite what looked like a convincing win over Matt Ryan and the Falcons, the Minnesota secondary actually surrendered 272 yards through the air. The run defense looked formidable, though, which could spell another disappointing week for Aaron Jones and the Green Bay run game. It feels like the team with better quarterback has the edge here. Also consider that the home team is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings between these teams and Minnesota is just 3-7 ATS in the last 10 trips to Lambeau Field.
