Packers at Vikings Betting Preview
Now it’s time for our Packers at Vikings Betting preview.
This will be the first real test for Aaron Rodgers now that he is without Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Davante Adams after both found a new team during the offseason.
On offense, the Packers will have to rely on the rushing attack from AJ Dillon and Aaron Jones.
And, when it comes to Rodgers, he will have to rely on Allen Lazard for the passing game.
The Vikings with no significant changes on the offensive are starting their season with Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson as the main weapons for Cousins.
This is an offensive lineup that will have to get used to the plans of new head coach Kevin O’Connell.
On the other hand, Minnesota made some changes on defense.
In fact, the team spent most of their draft capital on 2 key picks: Andrew Booth Jr and Lewis Cine. Both of whom are ready to start in the secondary.
These two teams split their 2 games last year, with each squad winning a game each at their own stadiums.
