Sunday Night Football odds, spread, line: Packers vs. Vikings prediction, NFL picks by expert on 49-15 roll

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers can try to win a fourth NFL MVP award when the Green Bay Packers host the rival Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Night Football. The reigning MVP, Rodgers is the leading contender for the award again this season with a league-best 110.8 passer rating for the Packers (12-3). He would become just the fifth player to win the award in back-to-back seasons after Jim Brown, Joe Montana, Brett Favre and Peyton Manning. On Sunday Night Football, he faces a 7-8 Vikings squad that desperately needs a win to keep its playoff hopes alive. Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins is reportedly out due to COVID-19.

Kickoff is set for 8:20 p.m. ET. Green Bay is a 13-point favorite in the latest Packers vs. Vikings odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the Over-Under for total points scored is 42.5. Before you make any Vikings vs. Packers picks of your own, you see to hear what NFL and Green Bay expert R.J. White has to say.

White, a CBS Sports fantasy and gambling editor, ended the 2020 season on an 80-59 run on all NFL picks, returning more than $1,400 during that span. It’s no surprise, as White has cashed huge twice in the world’s most prestigious football handicapping competition, the Las Vegas SuperContest.

In addition, White is an amazing 49-15-1 (+3197) in his last 65 against-the-spread picks involving the Packers. Anyone who has followed him is way up.

Why the Packers can cover

Davante Adams is having another standout season. The five-time Pro Bowl receiver is third in the NFL in receiving yards (1,362) and tied for third in receiving touchdowns (10). He needs just 25 receiving yards to set a career-high.

In addition, the game features one of the league’s most penalized teams (Minnesota) against one of the least (Green Bay). The Packers have been flagged just 68 times this season, which is the second fewest in the NFL, behind only the Bengals. Meanwhile, the Vikings have been penalized 104 times; just four teams have been flagged more. 

Why the Vikings can cover

Minnesota will have Dalvin Cook available this week. The Vikings running back returned from the reserve/COVID-19 list this week after the league altered its protocols for return. Cook ranks third in the league in rushing yards per game (97.0) and yards from scrimmage per game (117.1).

In addition, Minnesota has had success against the Packers recently. The Vikings have won the last two meetings against Green Bay, including a 34-31 win just six weeks ago.
