Let’s take a closer look at these two teams and we’ll start with the underdog Arizona Cardinals.

Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals are 1-4 overall and 3-2 ATS. The Cardinals have one of the worst teams in the NFL but are coming in off a win after beating the 49ers last week which was their first win of the season and they are doing a much better job of covering the spread.

Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings are 2-2-1 overall and 3-2 ATS. The Vikings ended their two-game losing streak by beating the reigning Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles on the road last week and will look to continue their winning streak against one of the worst teams in the NFL this week. Minnesota is 3-2 ATS overall, 0-1 ATS after a win, 1-1 ATS at home and 1-2 ATS as a favorite.

Kirk Cousins leads the team in passing with 1,688 yards for 11 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Latavius Murray leads the team in rushing with 106 yards. Adam Thielen leads the team in receiving with 47 receptions for 589 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Minnesota is averaging 22.6 points per game. They are averaging 65.8 rushing yards per game which ranks 31st in the NFL. They are averaging 321.4 passing yards per game which ranks 3rd in the NFL.

The Vikings are allowing 26.2 points per game which ranks 23rd in the NFL. They are allowing 99.4 rushing yards per game which ranks 13th in the NFL. They are allowing 278.6 passing yards per game which ranks 25th in the NFL.

Minnesota gets the win, but the Cardinals get the cover

The Cardinals have an above average defense with their weakness being their defense against the run, which ranks 31st in the NFL, but they are going up against the 31st ranked rushing offense in the NFL. The Vikings have given up a lot of yardage through the air this season and Josh Rosen continues to improve as a passer. The Vikings are a better team, but they are not good enough to give up double-digit points to anyone in the NFL. I look for the Vikings to get the win at home, but I like the Cardinals with the points which is why they are the pick in this game. Make sure to bet this match-up on BookMaker.
