Minnesota at Houston

Sunday 10/04 01:00 PM Eastern

2 units on Minnesota +3.5 (-105) (risk 2 to return 3.9)  RESULT: WIN

Two winless teams go at it in this one, although Minnesota came close against Tennessee, which got a 55-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski with under two minutes left to beat the Vikings 31-30 on Sunday. The Vikings did have several bright spots on offense as Dalvin Cook rushed for a career-high 181 yards and a touchdown, and rookie Justin Jefferson had seven receptions for 175 yards and a score. Kirk Cousins showed some improvement from the week before as he was 16 of 27 for 251 scores, although he threw two interceptions. Houston managed only 51 yards of total offense in the second half and lost 28-21 at Pittsburgh to fall to 0-3. The Texans have allowed an average of 31.7 points per game, and the offense has been lacking also. Deshaun Watson got off to a good start against the Steelers until they started putting more pressure on him, and that resulted in a meager second half for Houston. The Vikings are 8-2-1 ATS their last 11 October games, and they still are 39-14 ATS their last 53 games following a loss. The Texans are 3-8 ATS their last 11 home games, including 2-6 ATS as home favorites. Take the Vikings.
