5 Packers-Vikings Prop Bets & Betting Lines To Back On MNF
The NFC North title, a first-round home game and even a first-round bye in the NFC Playoffs are all in play when Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings play host to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football.
The Packers (11-3) are 6-1 against the spread against winning teams this season, but the home team has covered in six of the last seven meetings between this teams, which bodes well for the Vikings (10-4).

All odds current as of publication but subject to change. Check out the latest Packers-Vikings odds here.
PICK 1: Vikings -4
Green Bay’s offense has gotten by on big plays, and the defense on turnovers. Overall, the units rank in the bottom 10 in yards gained and allowed. Cousins has just one home INT all season (in a game where he also tossed four TDs). The Vikings have won eight of 10, the two blemishes on the road by one score to the Chiefs and Seahawks.
PICK 2: Under 46 Points
The Under has hit in eight of the last 10 meetings between these teams, and in five straight in Minnesota. Dalvin Cook’s likely absence won’t help the Vikings’ rushing attack, but each defense matches up well enough against the counterpart offenses. The Under is on a 7-0 run when the Packers face an NFC North opponent.
PICK 3: First Quarter — Over 7.5 Points
Both teams are used to hot starts, so how about both of them getting off to one? Combined, the Packers and Vikings average 13.6 ppg in the opening 15 minutes — that number is 18.4 ppg the last three weeks. The Packers and Vikings each have scored first in their last three games.
PICK 4: Highest-Scoring Quarter — Second
The Vikings average 8.8 ppg in the second quarter, among the best in the NFL. The Packers are in the middle of the pack when it comes to putting up points in that frame. But among the four quarters, the second quarter is when the Packers and Vikings allow the most points, and it’s not even close.
PICK 5: First Turnover — Vikings
Rodgers doesn’t throw INTs (two all season), and Cousins is among the best at avoiding picks, as well. But the Vikings fumble the ball — a lot. They’ve only lost 11, but have committed a whopping 28 of them, one off the league high. The Packers have just 10 fumbles, seven lost.
