Green Bay has lost three in a row, including their first loss at home to Detroit in 24 years. Minnesota now leads them by a game in the NFC North and have won five in a row.

Opening Odds & Line Movement

Open: -1 -105 at Pinnacle
The Packers opened this NFC North showdown as 1-point favorites on the road, but the NFL odds have given the Vikings some love as they are now favored by one at home. The Green Bay offense hasn't been clicking lately, outside of a fourth-quarter near-comeback in a loss at Carolina, and now QB Aaron Rodgers might be a little nicked up. The Vikings aren't doing anything special, playing hard-nosed football. They lead the league in rushing, thanks to RB Adrian Peterson, while ranking ninth in defense. The Vikings are also one of five teams in the league with fewer than 10 turnovers at nine, although the Packers lead the league with six.

 

Injuries
The Packers put Rodgers on the injury report on Wednesday with an injury to his right shoulder, but that shoulder would have to fall off to have Rodgers miss this game. It might just be tired as Rodgers threw 61 times against the Lions, but it's worrying that the Packers still lost. WR Ty Montgomery will likely play through an ankle injury, but WR Jared Abbrederis is out for several weeks with banged-up ribs.

Minnesota QB Teddy Bridgewater has his own shoulder injury after coming back from a concussion, but he practiced in full and will play this weekend. Peterson was limited in practice because of his hamstring, but he'll also be fine to go this weekend. T Matt Kalil missed practice with a toe injury, but again, he should play on Sunday. 

 

Trends
The Packers are 5-4 ATS this season, and they're 3-2 ATS on the road. The Vikings have been the best ATS team in the NFL this season with a record of 8-1, and they're a perfect 4-0 ATS at home. The total has dipped from 45 to 44.5, and the Vikings have gone under six times, along with two pushes. The Packers have also gone under six times.

The Packers are 8-1-1 SU and 6-4 ATS in their last 10 meetings with the Vikings, who are 4-6 SU and 5-5 ATS in their last 10 home games against Green Bay.
