Point Spread:

  • Vikings -3.5 (-110)
  • Cardinals +3.5 (-110)


  • Vikings -184
  • Cardinals +154


  • 48.5 points
    • Over -115
    • Under -105


Even with Kevin O’Connell as their new head coach, the Vikings have still been in multiple close games this year.

The final margin of each of Minnesota’s last four matchups this season have been within one score, so even if you want to make a wager on Sunday’s contest, it might be best to place a bet on the Vikings’ moneyline instead of hoping that they can cover the spread.

With that being said, Minnesota should be able to get the job done this weekend against an underachieving Cardinals team. Arizona has some playmakers on offense, but the Vikings should be prepared enough to stop them, given their extra week of rest.

Prediction: Vikings win
