Betting on the Minnesota Vikings (2-1 Preseason Record)
In what is perhaps his last game before his regular season debut for the Vikings, quarterback Kirk Cousins did considerably well, passing for 182 yards on 17-of-28 completions during a 21-10 win over the Seattle Seahawks at home. While Cousins looked ready to go, Minnesota’s offensive line needs some fixes done, as its weakness in quarterback protection reared its ugly head again, with Minnesota taking four sacks for a loss of 33 yards in the Seattle game. That said, the Vikings are not playing their starters much, so these are the kinds of struggles that ate expected of the team. Last season, the Vikings had the eighth fewest sacks allowed with 27.
The Vikings are 5-5 ATS in their last 10 preseason games. The under is 4-1 in their last five contests in August.
Betting on the Tennessee Titans (0-3 Preseason Record)
There have been lots of optimism for the Titans’ offense following the hiring of offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur, but if there were any improvements in Tennessee’s offense, barely any of those showed up last week, when the Titans got bludgeoned by the Pittsburgh Steelers’ stop unit in a 16-6 road loss. The Titans will look to bounce back, but they probably will have to do so minus quarterback Marcus Mariota, who will likely take a rest in that game. Instead, Tennessee will give the keys of the offense to Blaine Gabbert, who had 158 passing yards with a touchdown on 16-of-24 completions against Pittsburgh.
The Steelers are 6-4 ATS in their last 10 home games in August.
Tennessee rebounds from a bad loss to Pittsburgh and defeats Minnesota, 22-20, to nab their first preseason win.
