Minnesota 34 @ Carolina 28 | 10/17 | 5:00 PM UTC

Minnesota -135

WIN

ANALYSIS: Injury reports are moving this line, with good reason. To protect against a narrow Minnesota win, I'm playing the Vikings on the money line. The Vikings have three one-score losses and are better than their record, while Carolina struggled mightily against the only elite offense it has faced (Dallas). Not only is Kirk Cousins playing well (10 TDs, 2 INTs), but Mike Zimmer's defense has shined for the last 10 quarters.
