Vikings vs Commanders Predictions

POINT SPREAD: Washington Commanders +3.5 (-112) at Unibet

This should be a fun game to watch, an NFC cross-divisional matchup in the NFL’s Week 9 lineup as the Minnesota Vikings bump helmets with the Washington Commanders, with the Vikings at 6-1 and in charge of the NFC South by three games as QB Kirk Cousins and dual-threat RB Dalvin Cook quietly continue to play solid football while in DC QB Taylor Heinicke and deep threat WR Terry McLaurin are reeling in wins.

During the last seven times the Vikings and Commanders have faced off, in six of those matchups the underdogs have covered the spread, plus whenever the oddsmakers want to give the home team at least a field goal or more (here it’s +3.5) it is a good idea to take them since football teams tend to do better in front of their fans and in the stadium that was built for them.

Minnesota has a more productive offense than Washington, but it is the other way around when it comes to defense, and that is all on paper and in the past so it is truly about how these two teams match up, with Vikings first time HC Kevin O’Connell taking on the crafty veteran

Commanders HC Ron Rivera in an open FedExField in Landover, Maryland where the weather could play a factor.

The oddsmakers think that this will be a relatively low-scoring affair and have set the points total bet at 43.5, so it is up to the bettor to figure out if this matchup will produce more or less total points than that knowing that six of the last seven games between the Vikings and Commanders have gone over the total points line.

Before you break open your betting kitty, be sure to do a little basic research into how these two teams typically score since that will give you some idea of how this matchup could end up on the scoreboard, the Vikings with an offense that generates an average of 24.7 points per game and the Commanders’ offense posting 17.8 points per game, that total of 42.5 under what is listed.

Over on the defensive side of the ball, Minnesota is a bit more effective against the teams they play and allows them to score an average of 20.6 points per game, whereas Washington’s defense keeps the teams they are playing to 21.5 points per game, that total of 42.1 again under what the oddsmakers are predicting, so we would take the under in this Week 9 points total bet.

Though Washington has won each of their last five games in November, Minnesota has won five games in a row, and the question here is whether the bettor believes that their favorite team can win this matchup outright, and so far in the history of these two teams facing off, the Vikings lead the Commanders 14-13.

For Vikings fans, it will cost you a $186 money line bet on your team to beat the Commanders and if they were to win you would receive a $100 payout plus your initial investment, and for the Commander faithful your $100 money line wager would win $156 with a Washington victory plus your original bet, a fun gamble to make when you know for certain that your team will win.

Keep in mind that this is Week 9 in the NFL season and a lot of these key playmakers are getting banged up already, so be sure to check the injury reports to see which ones are listed as questionable to play, like for the Vikings there are three game time decisions including WR Adam Thielen (knee) and for the Commanders there will be four coach’s decisions including WR Jahan Dotson (hamstring).
