Sunday Night Football Betting Guide

Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.

Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full story here.

Mike Zimmer is one of the best coaches in the league at getting his team prepared to go on the road — he is 16-11 against the spread as road underdog, per our Bet Labs data — but facing the Cowboys’ top tier O-line without stud DT Linval Joseph (knee) will be one of Zimmer’s toughest challenges yet.

Johnson — a fourth-rounder out of Iowa in 2017 who has played 476 defensive snaps in his career — is a big drop-off from Joseph, a two-time Pro Bowler. Pro Football Focus gives Johnson a grade of 58.5, 93rd among DTs and 16.4 points below Joseph.

Opponents were already targeting the Vikings up the gut with success (Minnesota is ranked 25th in middle adjusted line yards allowed). Why? Because whomever lines up at the other DT spot next to Joseph is always going to be the weak link for a line that boasts a pair of monsters at defensive end like Danielle Hunter and Everson Griffen.
