49ers Preview: Fluke or Fortune?
The 49ers have been an overall solid team this year. In any other division they would receive a lot more recognition but because they are in the NFC West, they are overshadowed by the Cardinals and Rams.
After a dominant 31-10 victory over the division rival Rams, the Niners continued their dominant ways with a nearly identical 30-10 victory over the Jaguars. In both games, the Niners established the run game early and protected the ball. If they can continue that trend then they are a team built for the postseason.
Vikings Preview: What is this team?
Every week I attempt to pick this team to win or lose and every week I get it wrong. They are an enigma to me. One week they almost lose to the Lions and the next week they can beat the Packers. I don’t understand them.
On the one hand, they have an explosive offense. They use it to run screen after screen and stall out every drive some weeks but when they use it to throw deep and gain big plays it works. They did this against Green Bay and ran through their strong defense with relative ease. Stop running screens and short passes and let Kirk cook!
Odds & Free Betting Analysis for This NFL Game
Spread: I actually think I like the Vikings this week if they can do what they did against Green Bay. The 49ers are a talented team but realistically they are not as good as the Packers and if Kirk can get some deep balls going with Justin Jefferson, the Vikings could be looking really good.
Moneyline: I want the Vikings of course. It won’t be a blowout win or anything but it should certainly be a good win if they can stop the “throw a screen to Cook every other play” mindset. It’s healed this team back all year and made them too predictable on a low percentage play. Keep the Niners guessing and they can win this game.
Total: it all depends on the Vikings game plan. They are every bit as capable as any other team to put up 40 on a game any week but they have to play call properly to get there. If they can avoid bubble screens all game then Over for sure and I think they will finally start to pull away from that.
