Rams @ Vikings (11/19/17)
(Vikings -2.5 total 46)
Chaos loves to bust my chops about me loving to take overs, and this season I’ve been more siding with totals going under. Looking at what I believe is the best game on the card coming
up, here is my breakdown for your free pick of the week.
The Vikings have gone over in 3 straight games, and are 6-4 in their last 10. They’ve also scored 20 points or more in their last 5 straight games, and they’ve hit 33 points in their last 2 straight.
The Rams on the other hand, lead the league in PPG (32.9) and have also gone over the total in 6 of their last 10 games. They’ve scored 27 points or more in their last 4, including putting up
33 points against both Houston and Arizona (two teams that we typically see has defensively sound teams).
Minnesota DE Everson Griffen, who is tied for 3 rd in the league in sacks, was limited in Thursday’s practive with a foot issue, so expect that to slow him down on Sunday.
The last 10 meetings between these two teams, the over is 7-3.
I’m taking the over in this one. I got the total at 46 points. Two good defensive teams, both who could easily find the endzone for a score themselves.
