Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers Odds

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers odds continued to sit at Packers -3 Saturday afternoon at SBG Global.

This one goes off at Sunday, 4:15 pm Eastern - Fox

There is no question that the biggest game in NFL betting Week 8 takes place in Green Bay as the 4-2 Green Bay Packers host the 6-1 Minnesota Vikings and Brett Favre.  Packer fans have been waiting for this game for a long time and now it is here as Favre returns to Lambeau Field for the first time as a visiting player.  Favre led the Packers to seven division titles, 11 playoff appearances and 13 winning seasons but he is likely to be loudly booed on Sunday.

Green Bay is a 3-point favorite with a total of 47.5 at SBG Global.

Favre is trying to just get past this week against his former team but it will not be easy. It also won't be easy to get a win against a Green Bay team that is playing very well. Favre played well in the first meeting between the two teams earlier this season in Minnesota that the Vikings won as he completed 24 of 31 passes for 271 yards and three touchdowns. Green Bay's defense has looked better since then though as they have given up just 288 total yards and three points in since. The Packers rank third in total defense and fifth in scoring defense. "It's good to have two big wins," linebacker Aaron Kampman said. "We haven't done that back to back (with) dominant performances on the defensive side of the ball. Obviously it's going to help us going into a very large game, large stage again at Lambeau Field."

On the other side of the ball the Packers are getting great play out of quarterback Aaron Rodgers.  He is second in the league with a 110.8 rating and has passed for 1,702 yards with 11 TDs. "He deserves everything that he accomplishes," Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy said. "He's just doing a really good job of running the offense and I can't say enough about that."

The key in this game on Sunday will be giving Rodgers time to throw. The Vikings lead the league with 24 sacks and sacked Rodgers eight times in their first meeting.

Green Bay has won three straight and 12 of 15 against Minnesota at home.  Minnesota has not won at Green Bay since 2005.  The Vikings are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as an underdog. The Vikings are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 meetings in Green Bay. The Packers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a NFL betting favorite.

The Over is 7-2 in the Vikings last 9 games as a road underdog. The Over is 10-4 in the Packers last 14 games as a home favorite. The Over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between the two teams.
