Minnesota at New York

Sunday 10/21 01:00 PM Eastern

1 unit on Minnesota -175 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.57)  RESULT: WIN

Minnesota has gotten its offense in gear after its inexplicable 27-6 loss to Buffalo. The Vikings have averaged 27 points their last three games, including wins at Philadelphia and at home against Arizona. Latavius Murray saved the day for the Vikings by rushing for 155 yards on 24 carries and scored the first rushing touchdown of the season for the Vikes. Adam Thielen had 11 catches for 123 yards and Kirk Cousins went 24-of-34 for 233 yards as the Minnesota offense was clicking on all cylinders. New York won its second in a row after enduring a three-game losing streak, but the wins came against Denver and Indianapolis and the Jets will face a stiffer test this week on both sides of the ball. Rookie QB Sam Darnold was 24-of-30 for 280 yards with two touchdowns and an interception against the Colts, who actually outyarded the Jets 428-374. The Vikings have covered seven of their last 10 road games and the Jets are just 1-5 ATS their last six games after scoring at least 30 points their previous game. The Vikings are favored by just a field goal and they got a push by most accounts in their 10-point win over the Cardinals. Play the Vikings on the moneyline.
