NFL Week 17 Prediction – Minnesota Vikings vs Green Bay Packers


The last round of the 2015 standard season is a delight with the NFC North title in question in a victor take-all matchup in primetime. The Packers are the lords of the division and until another group thumps them from that roost, they will keep on decision. The Vikings have an open door, however winning in Lambeau is something they’ve experienced considerable difficulties heading into NFL Week 17 Prediction.

NFL Week 17 PredictionBoth teams have already punched their playoff ticket, but the winner of this game gets the NFC North title, which comes with the No. 3 seed and a home game in the wild-card round. Both teams also enter following blowouts last week, though they were on opposite sides of those results. Green Bay got worked by Arizona 38-8 as a 6-point underdog. The loss ended a 4-1 SU and ATS streak by the Packers. Meanwhile, Minnesota manhandled a Giants squad that knew it had nothing to play for. With the second-best spread-covering record in the NFL, the Vikings romped to a 49-17 home win laying seven points to improve to 12-3 ATS. The teams met Nov. 22 in Minnesota, with the Pack rolling 30-13 as 1-point dogs, the win that started Green Bay’s 4-1 streak.

NFL Week 17 Prediction on this game – With the bar being set so high by the Packers, it’s easy to think their time could be coming to an end after what happened in Arizona last week. But that was just one game – and a bad one at that for the Pack. A bruised offensive line struggled, Rodgers was sacked eight times and turnovers turned into touchdowns. It was the perfect storm. Green Bay has been in this position before, the last two seasons to be exact, playing for the division title on the final day of the regular season. They knocked off Chicago two years ago and upended Detroit last season, so the pressure and anxiety of playing in a winner-take-all game is nothing new. The health of the Packers offensive line could have Rodgers on the run most of the night, but he is more elusive than people think. The game should be closer than the first meeting, but it’s tough to pick against the Packers in a building where they’ve lost just once to the Vikings since 2005.
