2012 Season NFL Football Past Picks
December 30, 2012
Green Bay at Minnesota
Sunday 12/30 04:25 PM Eastern
2 units on Game Total OVER PICK (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
This game is going to feature a pair of offenses that will be the best units on the field when they have the ball, and I expect a lot of scoring as a result. The Packers have the top rated QB in the NFL, and that usually means consistent offense and converted third downs. That is exactly what the Packers have been doing. Green Bay has scored 20 points or more in 33 of their last 36 games. Adrian Peterson has put the Vikings on his back with an incredible display. In his last nine games he has rushed for 1,400 yards on 201 carries at 7 yards per attempt. That includes 210 against Green Bay on 21 carries at 10 yards per carry. The Vikings are 6-2 OVER in their last eight at home vs. a team with a winning record. Green Bay is 6-1 to the OVER after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their last game. The last 12 meetings between these teams in Minnesota have seen the OVER go 9-2-1. Take this game to go OVER the total.
