Thursday Night NFL Predictions – Washington Redskins vs. Minnesota Vikings Betting Odds


The Minnesota Vikings are at home to face Washington Redskins on Thursday night in a NFL Predictions game that can be seen on the NFL Network. The Minnesota Vikings played ok last week but still didn’t come through and lost fourth straight game to fall to 1-7 while the Washington Redskins won in overtime against the San Diego Chargers to improve to 3-5. A matchup between a 1-7 team and a 3-5 team normally doesn’t get a lot of attention but anytime you get a chance to watch RGIII and Adrian Peterson it is normally entertaining.Here is a look at Thursday’s game and NFL predictions.

NFL PredictionsWashington Redskins 3-5 SU, 3-5 ATS-The Washington Redskins found a way to win last week against the San Diego Chargers and despite their 3-5 record the team is only 1.5 games behind the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East. Robert Griffin III has played better in the last couple of games but the defense still can’t stop anyone. They were fortunate last week to hold the San Diego Chargers out of the end zone and get to overtime. The NFL Odds makers have listed Washington Redskins -2.5 favorites heading into the NFL Predictions matchup on Thursday night.

Minnesota Vikings 1-7 SU, 3-5 ATS -The Minnesota Vikings played well last week but still couldn’t get the win against the Dallas Cowboys. Christian Ponder threw for a TD and ran for another score and Adrian Peterson rushed for a TD. Peterson is having another good season but his success hasn’t meant much. “I don’t really care about the yards,” said Peterson, “I want to get some Ws. I don’t want to rush for 2,000 yards and be sitting at home watching others play.”

Series Notes -The Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings have split their last ten meetings both straight up and against the NFL betting odds. Three of the last four have gone over the total. This has been a weird series as the road team has done really well. The Washington Redskins have won four of the last five at Minnesota. Thursday Night NFL Betting Odds Washington Redskins vs. Minnesota Vikings early total set at 49 Points.

NFL Predictions -The total on this game will likely be in the low 50’s but based on how these two defenses are playing it probably should be in the 60’s. I will take the Thursday night game over the total at Diamond sportsbook.
