So, is the Sunday Night Football betting value with the red-hot Seahawks? Or is this a buy-low opportunity on the Vikings.

Big Money

Unsurprisingly, the biggest bets are also backing Kirk Cousins and Company, evidenced by the 89% of money wagered hitting the Vikes on just 45% of the spread tickets.

This leaves little doubt as to where the largest-sized wagers are landing in this matchup.

Model Projections

Our Fade Covering Teams PRO System, which finds value by fading teams overvalued in the market, pegs Minnesota as a match for tonight’s game against Seattle.

This system has a 315-246-17 (56%) against-the-spread win rate since 2005, providing some reasoning as to why the sharps are so heavy on the road underdog.
