There will be seemingly endless betting options for the Packers vs. Vikings, but there will always be those betting options that stand out. If you are looking to make a wager on the Packers and Vikings, then here are some of the best bets to make.
Betting Against the Spread
NFL point spreads usually attract the most attention when it comes to this league, and that’s probably the best bet to make on the Packers vs. Vikings. Because both of these teams are expected to compete for the top of the NFC North Division, the spread is not very large.
Green Bay is currently a two-point favorite on the road over Minnesota, and the odds for each side of that wager are set at -110. This means that the Packers would have to win by at least three points to cover the spread, while the Vikings can lose by one and still cover.
Betting the moneyline is another popular football bet to make, and there is actually a good opportunity in this game. Sometimes the moneyline doesn’t have a very big payout for one side, but with a small spread, then this can be a good option.
The Green Bay Packers are set to have moneyline odds of -135 in Week 1, and the Minnesota Vikings are at +125. All you have to do with this wager is pick the winning team, and the betting lines will tell you how much you can win.
If you make a $13.50 wager on the Packers, you would win $10. If you bet $10 on the Minnesota Vikings, your payout would be $12.50.
Another great betting option when it comes to the NFL is betting the over/under. You will hear people refer to this bet as betting the total, but your two options to choose from are “over” or “under.”
The Week 1 betting lines for this type of bet are set at 49.0 points at BetUS Sportsbook. Both of the sides have lines set at -110, and that’s a pretty standard line for this type of wager.
If the Packers and Vikings combine to score at least 50 points, then the over would be the correct pick. A final score of 48 points or less would mean that the under hits and 49 points exactly would result in a push.
You have plenty of time to get a pregame wager in for the Packers vs. Vikings as the odds come out months before kickoff. That doesn’t mean you are required to bet before the game starts, though, as live betting will also be another terrific option.
When it comes to live betting, the odds are going to be posted in real-time, and those could change based on the result of every single play.
You will have a wide range of betting options when making a bet while the game is taking place, but sticking to the three betting types listed above is what you will likely want to do.
Another good option when it comes to betting on the NFL is futures betting, although that type of bet won’t focus on just one single game. A futures bet is a wager placed on an outcome that is going to come at the end of the year, such as the eventual winner of the NFC North Division.
