NFL Betting: Vikings vs. CardinalsPublished December 10, 2015 by Sol FH
The Minnesota Vikings are on the road against the Arizona Cardinals live at 1:25 GMT.
Week 14 of the NFL regular season kicks off tonight with the Vikings at the Cardinals. The Vikings were embarrassed last week, losing 38-7 at home against the Seahawks and are in a troubling position looking forward to the post-season. The Vikings’ ability to win important games has once again come under scrutiny this past week, and they face a Cardinals team that is 10-2 and becoming one of the favorites for the playoffs.
Minnesota will be without many of their best players this week, out with injuries. Linval Joseph, Harrison Smith and Anthony Barr did not practice this week and will be off the roster tonight. To add insult to injury, the Vikings are 1-15 when playing on the road and broadcast on national TV. The Vikes do have one excellent thing going for them and that is of course Adrian Peterson, but as we watched last week, the MVP candidate can be stopped. We will need to see a much better game from Terry Bridgewater if the Purple and Gold are to beat the Cardinals. Bridgewater is no stranger of the Cardinals, having helped Minnesota beat them in his first NFL action back in 2014 preseason when he came in with the Vikings trailing 28-24 and led them to victory 30-28.
The Cardinals are dominating the NFC West and have won six straight games. They are in front of the Seahawks, whom crushed Minnesota last week and for Arizona, tonight’s game looks like the best-case scenario. They are relatively healthy, look to be improving every week, and are favorites to win tonight according to all odds posted by bet365 and other leading online sportsbooks.
