Betting on the Green Bay Packers (-1.5)

Regular Season Record: 0-0

Losing wide receiver Davante Adams is huge for the Packers, but so long as Aaron Rodgers is the one running the show on offense on the field for Green Bay, this team will demand respect from defenses. Rodgers is coming off an MVP season in 2021 when he passed for 4,115 yards and 37 touchdowns against only four interceptions. With Adams gone, Rodgers is believed to be intent on involving the running backs more in the passing attack. That means the pair of Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon will be essential pieces in both Green Bay’s air and rushing games. Veteran addition Sammy Watkins and rookie Romeo Doubts are also field-stretchers whose ceilings will be a little higher than most players in their tier because they have arguably the best quarterback of all-time passing the ball.

The Packers are 5-1 against the spread in their last 6 games in September.

Betting on the Minnesota Vikings (+1.5)

Regular Season Record: 0-0

Minnesota missed the playoffs in 2021, but 2022 should be better. With a new head coach in Kevin O’Connell, who was the offensive coordinator of the Los Angeles Rams when the team won the Super Bowl last season, Minnesota’s true potential could finally be unlocked this year. Last season, the Vikings averaged 25.0 points per game and 262.8 total yards per contest. Kirk Cousins passed for 4,221 yards, Dalvin Cook rushed for 1,159 yards, and Justin Jefferson went off for 1,616 receiving yards. Jefferson could be the one with the biggest explosion in Minnesota this season, as he looks fit for KOC’s system. Minnesota also invested a lot of draft capital in defensive pieces, which bodes well for the team’s stop unit that allowed 25.1 points per game in 2021.

The Vikings are 20-7-1 against the spread in their last 28 games as a home underdog.
