Vikings vs Eagles predictions
There is not a lot separating these teams in the latest Vikings vs Eagles odds.
Both teams were expected to win their first games, but neither went according to the script. The Vikings, favored by less than a field goal against the Packers at home, held the Packers to a paltry seven points on defense while moving the ball at will on offense.
Justin Jefferson ran amok, hauling in nine catches for 184 yards and two touchdowns against a Packers defense that looked devoid of a plan to contain him. Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison each averaged 4.5 yards per carry, giving the Vikings a total of 126 yards on the ground over 28 rushing attempts.
Philadelphia can pack a punch on offense. A.J. Brown immediately made his presence felt at receiver, catching 10 of Hurts' 18 completed passes for a total of 155 yards.
With that said, the versatility of the Vikings' offense should pose all kinds of issues for an Eagles defense that ranked just 19th in defensive scoring last year and was gouged by Detroit in the second half of their Week 1 showdown.
The Eagles went just 3-5 at home last year. Expect them to get off on the wrong foot again here.
Prediction Vikings +2.5
Vikings vs Eagles Best Value Bet
- AJ Brown over 74.5 yards (-115)
