Minnesota at Las Vegas

4 units on Las Vegas +4.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)  RESULT: WIN

After a 6-0 start, the Vikings have lost three straight. I went against them the past two weeks as 5.5 and 4.5 point favorites and yes, ladies and gentlemen, I’m going for the hat trick. Once again the Vikings are favored and once again I predict they will fall to a worse team. It is definitely crisis-time in Minnesota. As I mentioned last week, the Vikings were doubting themselves after losing to the Giants and Green Bay. Then they go and get blown out by the hapless Chargers! They are reeling, my friends. Their defense is allowing over 450 yards and 34 points per game over the last three games. And Randy Moss seems to be sulking a bit. If you watched the game last week you saw, as I did, at least four key plays where he just didn’t try. I don’t care how good you are. If, as a highly paid professional, you give up on catchable pass because it wasn’t thrown to your liking, you should be benched. It’s absolutely ridiculous! Now, you’re saying – “but this is Oakland – they suck!” Yes, they have had a rough year. But, even the doormats surprise you once in a while in the NFL. Rick Mirer now has two games under his belt and I expect him to have a decent game this week. The Raiders should also have some success on the ground. I think they’ll be able to keep this one close. The Raiders haven’t covered a spread this year and I don’t think that can continue forever.
