Our NFL tip deals with the potential reactions that Minnesota can have after the woodshed walloping they suffered by Seattle. How much of this will translate into the short work week by a physical team? Vikings also have to travel to Arizona and play a potent offense on the road. Current lines are -7 1/2 on the home team with a total of 45. How will HRWager weigh in on the path to profit for Thursday Night Football?
NFL Tip : Shorthanded
Offenses rule the roost in short weeks if they have a dimension they do really well. Here both teams have a facet that shines brightly. Arizona can fling it with the best of them as Carson Palmer is playing near an MVP level this year. On Minnesota’s side, AP can rush against almost anyone provided they give him the ball. Seattle with a stacked line proved near impossible to rush against but the paltry amount of times he touched it was not the optimal path for them. While Arizona is above average on defense, they are still nowhere near the Seahawks performance last week. Minnesota should be able to even get some jailbreak rushes this Thursday.
Other key point is that Minnesota really suffered on the defensive side. They were beat up by Seattle. Also a number of their starters missed portions of the game after getting their cage rattled. Even elite athletes have a really hard tie rebounding in the short work week from that toil. Arizona will have more time to pass and should have few hiccups on their offensive side of the ball.
Easy choice once again. Selective wagering is the key and this game has an exploitable element. Big game for both and the offenses are in better shape to carry the game. Total of 45 is too low for the linesmaker’s needs. Invest on the over 45 for the Vikings at the Cardinals for the best chance for your bankroll to bloom for the weekend. Good fortune to us all and we will see you next time here at the HRW.
