3 units on Minnesota +1.5 (+100) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: WIN

The fact the Vikings lost game one isn't surprising, as they have now dropped all three openers under head coach Brad Childress. But he has shown that from this point on he has his team ready to play. The Vikings are 4-1-1 after game one with him at the helm. Coincidence? Not when you go into your second game last year with your featured running back gaining 70 yards and scoring 37 points (and a similar scenerio two years ago). We expect the Vikings to show up for this one. Baltimore eeked out a 1 point win last week vs New England that featured the Pats playing three QB's that have a combined total of 238 yards in their NFL regular season history. Even with Baltimore featuring Boller and Smith throwing 27 of the 30 passes the team attempted, they managed to win by just 1 point. Childress has a history of mailing in the first one, but then getting more serious as the preseason progresses, and we will back the Vikings to get win number one in the '08 pre-season.
