The Minnesota Vikings shocked the world in their week 4 matchup with a dominating victory against the Atlanta Falcons. Rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater showed why he should be the Vikings leading QB; In his season debut, the former Louisville players was able to throw for 317 yards, ran for a touchdown and lead his team to a victory at home. However, during the game against the Falcons, Bridgewater suffered a sprained ankle and he is said to be questionable come Thursday night against the Packers. Furthermore, the Vikings rushing offense proved to their fans that they could still run the ball incredibly even without their leading running-back Adrien Peterson; back-up RB Matt Asiata ran for 78 yards and 3 TDs and rookie RB Jerick McKinnon ran for 135 yards in his debut… with stats like this the Vikings have yet again gained confidence in their rushing offense. Come Thursday night, if Teddy Bridgewater has a healthy status, do not underestimate this Vikings team as they will intensively compete against their arch divisional rivals, the Green Bay Packers.
The Green Bay Packers also had a successful week 4 against their divisional rivals the Chicago Bears. Before the game, Aaron Rodgers mentioned to the Packers fans on a radio show ‘’don’t worry it’s going to be ok and to R-E-L-A-X”, due to the Packers season performance so far. After that statement, Rodgers and the Packers shut down their NFC rivals 38-17…Way to go Packers!! Rodgers threw for 302 yards and a whopping 4 TD’s; Both Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson were able to 2 touchdowns and over 100 yards. Though the biggest struggle has been in their running game; RB Eddie Lacy has not been having the expected season; he carried the ball 17 times in week 4 but only rushed for 48 yards. Expect these numbers to increase for the Packers running back on Thursday night.

Free Sports Pick
The odds tables opened the Packers as a big favorite for this matchup with a -10 spread. Our team here at Vegas Sports Betting think differently depending on the health status of Teddy Bridgewater. If he is to play no doubt should you go withthe underdog team that being the Minnesota Vikings. Bridgewater only suffered a sprained ankle; we think that since he is young and this is a minor injury, Bridgewater should able to get healthy quickly and start come Thursday night. We then recommend to pick Minnesota Vikings +9 ½ given by Bovada. We also highly recommend taking this pick right now because when they confirm that Bridgewater is 100% healthy to play Thursday, the spread will alter by a big chunk.
Free Sports Betting Pick: Minnesota Vikings +9 ½ (may alter depending on Teddy Bridgewater’ health status)
