The public is targeting this Sunday Night Football game heavily amid COVID-19 issues in the Minnesota camp.

Vikings starting quarterback Kirk Cousins will miss this contest after contracting the coronavirus earlier this week. Cousins is unvaccinated and will need to test negative twice after at least five days of quarantine.

Veteran quarterback Sean Mannion, who has only two career starts in his NFL career, going 0-2, will take the helm with the Vikings’ playoff chances on the line. A loss here would eliminate the Vikings from postseason contention.

As a result of these factors, a ridiculous 95% of the money is on the Packers to cover.

The public is also hammering these three player props.

Vikings vs. Packers Most Popular NFL Player Props

  1. Davante Adams to score a touchdown at any time (-160)
  2. Dalvin Cook to score a touchdown at any time (+140)
  3. Aaron Jones to score a touchdown at any time (-115)

*Odds and data are according to PointsBet as of Sunday afternoon.

Adams has scored a touchdown in seven of his 13 games with Aaron Rodgers as the quarterback, including each of his last three games.

Minnesota has the No. 11 ranked pass defense in the NFL, according to DVOA. However, they only have the 22nd-best run defense. For that reason, I see more value in Aaron Jones’ touchdown prop and at a better vig. Jones has scored in six of 13 games with Rodgers at quarterback.

Meanwhile, Cook’s touchdown prop is a stayaway. While the Packers are a pitiful 31st in the NFL at run defense, don’t expect the Vikings to put together too many long drives with Mannion behind center. There’s a decent chance Minnesota never gets into the end zone in this one.
