WIN

ANALYSIS: I'm right with Larry Hartstein on this one. Let's take a 1 or 2-point Minnesota win out of the equation with the moneyline while backing the Vikings as Carolina remains without its best offensive player in Christian McCaffrey and best defender in linebacker Shaq Thompson. How important is McCaffrey to a regressing Sam Darnold? He has been sacked eight times the past two games without McCaffrey compared to being sacked three times the first two games when McCaffrey played a majority of the snaps. Minnesota ranks second in the NFL with 17 sacks. The Vikes are quite healthy with Dalvin Cook back.
