The Green Bay Packers face the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Night Football. The game will kick off at 8:20 pm at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The Packers come into the game with a 4-5-1 record. The Vikings are 5-4-1.

Green Bay is winless on the road, as they are 0-5.

According to ESPN’s Football Power Index, the Vikings have a 56.5% chance to win this game.

The Vikings are three-point home favorites against Green Bay in Week 12 and the trends heavily favor Minnesota. The Packers remain winless on the road this season (0-5) and are just 1-3-1 against the spread outside of Lambeau, making this a very attractive game to place a wager on, so if you will do that, first look at any of the top online sites here as they were previously reviewed by professional bettors and sports fans who bet occasionally and they have proved to be legit.

Minnesota is also 3-2 straight-up and against the spread at home, and historically have a massive home-field advantage in Minneapolis. They’re also 4-1-1 in the last six versus Green Bay and are the healthier team heading into Week 12; LB Anthony Barr should return to the Viking defense while the Packers will be without DT Mike Daniels and potentially TE Jimmy Graham. Lay the points with the Vikes.

Both teams tied in their first meeting this year. It was 29-29 in Green Bay, Wisconsin on September 16th.

Minnesota is undefeated in the past three games in the series. They won both games in 2017.

Green Bay has not won in the series in nearly two years. They won 38-25 on December 24th, 2016.

The Pack come into the game on a one-game losing streak. They were defeated 27-24 against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday Night Football on November 15th.

Green Bay has not won since November 11th. They defeated the Miami Dolphins 31-12 at Lambeau Field.

Minnesota also comes into the game on a one-game losing streak. They were defeated by the Chicago Bears, 25-20, on November 18th.

The Vikings have not won since November 4th. They defeated the Detroit Lions, 24-9.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has gone 238 of 385 for 3,073 yards. He also had 19 touchdowns and one interceptions.

Aaron Jones leads the Green Bay running backs with 84 carries for 534 yards and five touchdowns. Davante Adams leads the wide receivers with 72 receptions for 953 yards and nine touchdowns.
