Erik's Past Picks
Scoot is in the perfect matchup to go over. It’s rare I see this much value. Took the over. Unit and a half
This is a battle of 2-14 teams but I think Det is actually better plus they are at home. As a modest ML favorite of -130 this is simply a philosophical play. I’ve said it all year long: Bet against Washington whenever you can
Fields is a one read QB. After that he takes off. Plus the Vikes BLITZ and he is worse than Zac Wilson against the blitz (go ahead and reread that sentence). This number is high but I’ll still go over. And I’ll hope for no kneel downs at games end
George is simply getting better by the game. The line hasn’t adjusted and with George getting minutes (especially with no Lauri M. tonight) he should go over.
Alexander Mattison is slowly but surely losing snaps in the backfield and let’s face it, you don’t run on the Bears. He will need either a) significantly more volume than projected b) two huge plays or c) 20 percent more plays than projected to go over this total.
I’m doubling up on Hockenson, taking his yards and receptions over. You don’t run on the Bears, TJ is the Vikes #1 option and he has thrived with Dobbs. Let’s just bet on the best guy (especially when the numbers are not inflated)
Hockenson is the main guy for Dobbs and with JJ still sidelined he should continue to thrive. You don’t run on the Bears, you throw it to your best player. I’m projecting 10-11 targets; we should catch 7-8 of them.
Chandler is now becoming a bigger part of the Vikings offense and the Bears are not great v RBs. He is being talked up by the staff and is projected to catch 2 passes. 11.5 is nice value.
Andy Reid is great off a bye. Because he self scouts. Rice is their best option at WR. The only time he has been under this number lately was in a strange game when Mahomes had less than 200 yards passing the week after he had the flu. Let’s go over
Beasley should get lots of opportunities against a Washington team that sometimes appears as though they don’t realize that there is a defensive end of the floor. Even in a blowout his minutes should be enough to go over.
The Sharks are not good. That’s the kindest way to say it. Vancouver has a bit of bully in them and this should be a rout.
Unless he is a crazy volume shooter he should go under. Minn front court plays great D and it’s a favorable matchup for us.
