An all NFC clash in Minneapolis between two playoff-chasing teams in the Rams and the Vikings. LA lead their division after Arizona lost to the Colts last night, whilst Minnesota sit just outside the playoff bubble at 7-7. Will Matt Stafford & Co claim sole possession atop the NFC West, or will Minnesota do their postseason aspirations a favour with an upset win?
Alexander Mattison will step in for Dalvin Cook, who misses this game after being added to the Covid-19 list earlier in the week. Mattison has started in Cook’s sted three times already this season, each resulting in at least 90 rushing yards and no fewer than 22 rushing attempts. I don’t expect Minnesota to move away from their run-heavy game plan in what is close to a must-win game for the Vikings.
Spread: Vikings +3
Game Prediction: Rams 27-26 Vikings
Best Bet: Alexander Mattison over 17.5 rushing attempts & over 67.5 rushing yards @ 17/10 with Bet365 Bet Builder. [0.5]
