NFL 2019 Week 8 TNF: Redskins vs. Vikings Betting Prediction 10/24/2019
This Thursday night we’ll have a match that doesn’t seem to have much appeal. The Washington Redskins will travel to Minnesota to face the Vikings, who will be looking for their sixth win of the season.
Washington Redskins Betting Analysis
In a match that seemed from another era, the Redskins were defeated by the 49ers 9 to 0. There were no touchdowns on Sunday for any team in a game in which rain was the protagonist. Anyway, it was the fourth game in a row for the Redskins with 13 or less first downs, this offensive does not walk and adds 12 turnovers in the last 5 games. They have one of the worst 5 offensives of the season and a defense that is not good either. While the attack converts 25% of their third downs, the defense allows conversions on 50% of the occasions. Unsustainable. It is difficult to have any success against the defense of Vikings, one of the top 10 in the league in almost all departments and plays with high intensity at home.
Minnesota Vikings Betting Analysis
The Minnesota Vikings have won 3 games in a row with their offensive hand that has surpassed 445 total yards on all 3 occasions, with a Kirk Cousins who has thrown 10 touchdown passes for an interception in this lapse and Dalvin Cook who already has 5 games of 100+ yards in the year, 725 land yards in total, at a rate of 5.5 yards per haul. Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen have combined for 950 yards in the season with 10 touchdowns by air. Cook has scored 19 of the team’s 24 touchdowns. In defense, Danielle Hunter has 7 sacks in the season, with at least 1 in 6 of the team’s 7 games. The Vikings will arrive with a good mattress of victories at the end of the season where they will play the division at home. For now, they are 1-2 in the division and 5-0 out of it.
Chris Thompson, Adrian Peterson, Josh Norman, and Montae Nicholson are questionable this week by the Redskins while the Vikings have been without Adam Thielen in training and will not be this week. Adrian Peterson will be forced to play against his ex-team.
Tomorrow’s Vikings victory is very clear. The Redskins come from scoring 0 points and it seems pretty difficult to score 2 touchdowns this week, especially with Adrian Peterson dragging an ankle injury.
