After a terrible start to the season, the Minnesota Vikings have risen from the dead and have a legitimate shot to go on a run in the NFC.
They can keep the good times going this weekend when they take on the Green Bay Packers in an NFC North showdown. Check out my full betting preview here to find out whether or not I'm backing them with my money in Week 8.

Best Any Time TD for Vikings vs. Packers
- Cam Akers
- T.J. Hockenson
- K.J. Osborn
Now is the perfect time to invest in some Cam Akers bets. Alexander Mattison's work load is decreasing and Cam Akers' is coming off his season-high in snap percentage. He played 39% of the Vikings' offensive snaps on Monday night. He also has been the much more effective running back this season, averaging 0.5 more yards per carry this season compared to Mattison.
If you're going to bet on a Vikings' running back to find the end zone, bet on Akers.
T.J. Hockenson now has the most targets and receptions on the Vikings with Jefferson sidelined. He's also coming off his best performance of the season, hauling in 11 receptions on 12 targets for 86 yards. He may just be the best value on the board to find the end zone against the Packers.
Jordan Addison may be scoring the touchdowns lately, but K.J. Osborn has been getting plenty of targets and receptions in Jefferson's absence. He has hauled in at least five receptions in three-straight games and he's long overdue to find the end zone. He's worth a bet to do exactly that on Sunday.
