Straight Up (Sebastian Morera)
The Vikings enter this weekend’s action sporting a meager 1-3 record that ties them alongside the Detroit Lions for last place in the NFC North. Considering they’re giving up 31.3 points per game, it’s safe to say that the Minnesota defense of the past is long gone. This weekend they’ll be going up against Russell Wilson, who is making a case for the MVP award. We can fully expect Wilson and the Seahawks to run up the score this weekend as they advance to 5-0.
Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The Minnesota Vikings (1-3) visit the undefeated Seattle Seahawks (4-0) in a clash of hopeful NFC contenders. The Vikings finally got off the schneid with a 31-23 victory over the Houston Texans last week. Minnesota hopes to build on that foundation and make some noise in Seattle. The Seahawks have won their last three games by an average of 6.66 points, and as we all know that’s the Number of the Beast. The Beast is Dalvin Cook.
Cook leads the NFL in rushing with 424 rushing yards and six touchdowns so far in 2020. Seattle’s defense against the run is ranked third, but I believe they’ll struggle against Cook. The Vikings’ bone-crushing back has compiled 311 yards and three TDs on the ground over his last two games. Cook is a freight train, and Minnesota’s destination is 2-3. The Vikings will hand Russell Wilson and the Seahawks their first loss of the season.

Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
The Minnesota Vikings finally won in Week 4 and that can be the fuel they needed to face the unbeaten Seattle Seahawks.
RB Dalvin Cook has been sensational and the duo of WR’s Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson is becoming a serious threat (217 yards combined in Week 4).
Minnesota averages 26.5 points per game and the total has gone over in six of Minnesota’s last nine games on the road.
Even in an off-game Russell Wilson’s numbers are good. In Week 4 against the Dolphins Wilson threw for 360 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception.
That’s why the Seahawks are averaging 35.5 points per game (second best in the league) and they will be facing one of the worst secondaries so far.
The total has gone over in four of Seattle’s last six games against Minnesota. Go over once again in a thriller.
