Cardinals vs. Vikings Picks
Chris Raybon: This is a spot to back the Vikings. Coming off a loss, Mike Zimmer-coached teams cover the spread twice as much as they don’t, going 30-15 ATS (67%) in his career.
As impressive as the Cardinals looked against Tennessee, some of their underlying metrics provide a reason for pause. Kyler Murray made some impressive plays, but overall, the Cardinals were only 19th in offensive success rate (47%) and 25th in passing success rate (41%), according to Sharp Football Stats.
And per our Action Labs data, Week 2 dog off loss +6 or less are 57-33-2 (63%) ATS since 2005.
Minnesota still ended up ranking an above-average 14th in overall DVOA last week. Ultimately, I think these are two average teams and that Arizona is getting an overreaction bump after mashing an unprepared Titans squad.

Cardinals vs. Vikings Prop Picks
DeAndre Hopkins Under 90.5 Rec Yards (-115) at DraftKings
Sean Koerner: It’s never fun betting the under on future Hall of Famers, but someone has to do it.
I would imagine 80%+ of the action has been on the “over” in this market, and as a result, the line has been inflated to the point that I believe we need to come in on the under.
Hopkins saw only a 20.6% target share in Week 1, thanks to the Cards’ ancillary WRs — Rondale Moore, A.J. Green and Christian Kirk — having larger roles within the offense. The extra competition for targets makes me think this line is a tad too high.
If Hopkins ends up going for 12/230/3 this week, I would be the least-surprised person on Earth, but I’m projecting him to go under this number 58% of the time.
- Bet to: 88.5
