1.5 units on Game Total UNDER 51.5 -115 (risk 1.5 to return 1.5) RESULT: LOSS
The Minnesota Vikings are 29th in the league in offensive yards, but have scored 23.3 points per game. That will not continue with the production they are getting on offense, or should I say lack of production. Adrian Peterson is becoming an afterthought, mainly because Minnesota is almost always trailing. He has gained just 150 yards on just 36 attempts in his last three games and is averaging just 4.5 yards per carry. He opened the season with a 78-yard run and had another for over 50. Outside of those two big runs averaging a woeful 3.5 yards per tote. The Dallas defense is playing much better, and thankfully there is no semblance of Megatron on the field for Minnesota this week, as he was a one man wrecking crew a week ago. Minnesota has not been a consistent offense. After scoring 30 points or more in their previous game, they are 26-9 to the UNDER in their last 35. Dallas has bounced-back nicely defensively after allowing 30+ in their previous game, playing four straight UNDERs. Since Leslie Frazier took over in Minnesota, the Vikings are 12-4 to the UNDER on the road with a total set in this middling range (42.5 to 49 points). I just don't see this one getting there, so take the UNDER.
