Philadelphia Eagles at Minnesota Vikings Pick

Betting Odds

Opening Line: Eagles -5.5
Over/Under: 51

Philadelphia won their fifth-straight game last week, 34-20 over Detroit in a snowstorm. Minnesota fell 29-26 to Baltimore last Sunday, losing in the final minute.

The Eagles offense is in high gear, ranking 1st in rushing (158.5 ypg) and 3rd in total offense. Minnesota allows an average of 401 ypg and look to be in tough here. RB LeSean McCoy leads the NFL in rushing and has set a career high with 1,744 yards from scrimmage. The Vikings run defense isn't what it was in the Williams Wall days and they allow 4.2 ypc. Look for McCoy to be involved early and often as HC Chip Kelly knows how to get the best out of him (unlike his predecessor Andy Reid). QB Nick Foles is 6-1 as the starter and is having a fantastic season. His 120.0 QB rating is the third best all time and despite throwing a pick last week, his TD/INT ratio sits at 20-1. Minnesota's pass defense has been poor all year and Foles should be able to find open receivers downfield. WRs DeSean Jackson and Riley Cooper have become a dynamic duo and Jackson is having a career year. DEs Jared Allen and Brian Robison each have seven sacks and must be accounted for on every passing play.

The Vikings offense will be minus their best player this week. RB Adrian Peterson has an injured foot and his absence will be felt. RB Toby Gerhart replaced him last week and acquitted himself well but he doesn't do enough to worry this Eagle defense. QB Matt Cassel against the Ravens as QB Christian Ponder was out with a concussion. It's not clear who will get the nod this week but Cassel is the safe bet. With Peterson out, Minnesota will look to rely more on the pass. While Philadelphia's pass defense has slowly improved in 2013, they still rank 31st in the league (285.3 ypg, 2.8 better than Vikings). Rookie WR Cordarrelle Patterson is coming off a big game and the Eagles will have to give over-the-top help on the speedy youngster. WRs Greg Jennings and Jerome Simpson aren't big threats. This passing game really misses TE Kyle Rudolph (IR). Philly lacks a big-play sack artist but get contributions from several players. The Eagles have held their last nine opponents to 21 points or less.

ATS Game Pick

This contest features two teams at opposite ends of the NFL landscape. Philadelphia is streaking and looking to win the NFC East division. Minnesota is scouting QBs in the NCAA right now, knowing they will snag one with a presumed Top 5 pick. The absence of Peterson kills the best chance the Vikings had to pull an upset and with the number so low, we'll back an Eagles team (5-1 SU/ATS on the road) that is just too much for Minnesota on both sides of the ball.
