The Vikings pulled off an incredible upset over the 49ers led by Jordan Addison's career day and now take on the Green Bay Packers with a chance to keep climbing in the NFC North race.

Green Bay fell to Denver in Week 7, marking three straight losses for the Packers. The Monday Night Football victory gives the Vikings three wins over their last four, largely on the strength of a rapidly-improving defense.

Oddsmakers believe Minnesota can make the division race interesting, now just two games behind Detroit. Let's check out the opening odds before explaining how you can claim an INSTANT $200 bonus from DraftKings betting just $5 right now!

Vikings vs. Packers Week 8 Opening Odds

The Vikings are short road favorites with the total points set at 42.5, implying a defensive battle that comes down to the wire.

Five consecutive Minnesota games have gone under the total and three of Green Bay's last four contests did the same, so both teams have defenses playing well with relatively struggling offenses.

These squads split their season series last year, though the Vikings are 4-2 in the previous six matchups. Jordan Addison took a massive step forward in his rookie season last night, catching seven passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns.

He's now scored six times in seven games, potentially giving the first-rounder value in the prop market.
