The Minnesota Vikings sent a strong statement across the league with a win over the Dallas Cowboys last week, and in the process, managed to keep in step with the Green Bay Packers in the NFC North. The Denver Broncos are coming into the game with fresher legs, having taken two weeks of full rest. The Broncos and the Vikings are +50000 and +1600 to win Super Bowl 54, respectively.

Betting on the Denver Broncos (3-6)
The Broncos are coming off a bye, which they entered right after beating the Cleveland Browns at home back in Week 9, 24-19. While stopping the Browns’ talented offensive unit is no longer quite a remarkable feat as it, limiting Cleveland to just 1-for-5 in the red zone was proof that there’s life in Denver’s stop unit and that it holds the biggest key to the team’s success. On the season, the Broncos are allowing just 18.9 points, sixth-fewest in the NFL and 309.7 total yards per game, which is fourth overall in the league. Brandon Allen also put up a better-than-expected performance in the win over Cleveland, as the former Arkansas Razorbacks quarterback went 12 of 20 for 193 yards and two touchdowns without getting intercepted. The Vikings’ defense could be the first to rattle the former sixth-round pick, so the Broncos’ defense will likely have to do the heavy lifting again.
The Broncos are 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last five games.
Betting on the Minnesota Vikings (7-3)
After a tough loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on the road in Week 9, the Vikings finally scored a notable victory away from home this season with a 28-24 win over the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday, 28-24. Kirk Cousins was efficient with his play in that game, passing for 220 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 23-of-29 completions. Much of his success should also be attributed to Minnesota’s offensive line that allowed just a sack. Cousins may not have to worry much about pass rushers coming at him this weekend, as the Broncos are only 26th in the league with just 19.0 sacks. Cousins could get plenty of help from Minnesota’s running game, which is third in the league with a production of 153.0 rushing yards per contest. That’s not good news for the Broncos, who are giving up the 17th-most rushing yards per game.
The Vikings, who are scoring 26.2 points per outing, are 4-2 ATS in their last six games overall.
The Vikings win, 24-19.
