Vikings vs Packers Week 13 NFL Handicapping Advice
Green Bay Packers: Keeping pace with division leader
Green Bay is 7-4 following its lopsided loss to the Giants last weekend and has fallen one game behind the Bears for the lead in the NFC North and are just one game ahead of the Vikings in the standings. The Packers have won four consecutive games against the Vikings and could really use a fifth straight win over Minnesota to keep pace in the division with the Bears. Green Bay still has the first Wild Card spot.
Minnesota Vikings: Two games out of first in NFC North
Minnesota is sitting at 6-5 on the season and could make a major move in the division standings with a win over the host Packers Sunday. The Vikings are not a good road team, playing to a 1-4 record in 2012, which could go against their favor this weekend. After starting the season 4-1, the Vikings have dropped four of their last six games. Minnesota has a record of 2-1 in the NFC North so far this season.
Divisional games dot the schedule on Week 13 of the NFL season and the one between the Vikings and the Packers could be one of the more exciting games of the weekend. Both teams need a win to keep pace with the Bears in the NFC North as the seasons winds down. The online sportsbook at Bodog.ca has the Packers as -9 (+110) home chalk, which is why we will bet on the Cheeseheads Sunday.
