Minnesota Vikings vs. Seattle Seahawks

Where: CenturyLink Field

When: Monday, December 2, 2019, 8:15 pm ET

We have an NFC non-divisional matchup to consider for Monday night when the Minnesota Vikings meet the Seattle Seahawks. The Vikings are tied with the Green Bay Packers for the top spot in the NFC North, and the Seahawks are one game behind the San Francisco 49ers for first in the NFC West. This will be the seventeenth time these franchises have met, and Seattle holds an 11-5 edge in their rivalry with the Seahawks winning their last five meetings.

Vikings Two Game Winning Streak

The Vikings are tied with the Green Bay Packers for the top spot in the NFC North, and this would be a big win for Minnesota. They have the Lions, Chargers, Packers, and Bears remaining on its schedule, and a win on Monday would be a good thing for the Vikings.

Seattle allows 282 passing yards per game and Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins 2756 yards with 21 touchdowns alongside three interceptions. He’s also rushed for 50 yards and a pair of trips to the end zone. He’s also been sacked 22 times, and Seattle doesn’t have that much of a pass rush, recording only 22 sacks this season.

Wide Receiver Adam Thielen is listed as questionable, but Cousins still has leading receiver Stefon Diggs and his 880 receiving yards with five touchdowns. Tight end Kyle Rudolph has seen five targets in each of the past five games and has 251 yards with five touchdowns this season.

The Seahawks allow 101.5 rushing yards per game, and the Vikings Dalvin Cook has been money this season, rushing for 1017 yards alongside 11 touchdowns plus an extra 455 receiving yards this season. Rookie running back, Alexander Mattison might see some time and has rushed for 394 yards and a touchdown this season.

(Update 12-2: Thielen is out with a hamstring injury).

Seahawks Four Game Winning Streak

Seattle has won four of its last five games and is just a game behind the 49ers in the NFC West Standings. After this home game with Minnesota, the Seahawks take to the road for a pair of games and closes the season at home with Arizona and San Francisco. Monday is an important game for Seattle.

Minnesota allows 268 passing yards per game and MVP candidate Russell Wilson has thrown for 2937 yards, 24 touchdowns, and three interceptions. Wilson has rushed for an additional 271 yards with three touchdowns and has been sacked 33 times this season. The Vikings have recorded 31 sacks and could make Wilson’s life miserable.

Wideout Tyler Lockett has had a big year, catching 63 balls for 831 yards with six touchdowns. Wilson also looks for DK Metcalf and he’s delivered with 638 yards and five touchdowns this season.

The Vikings allow 94.2 rushing yards per game and Chris Carson will be the one Seattle looks to on Monday night. Carson has rushed for 879 yards with four touchdowns plus an extra 220 receiving yards with two touchdowns. Rashad Penny has 296 yards with two touchdowns and could play a role on Monday night.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Vikings are a good football team with a stout defense, but I suspect the Seahawks and Russell Wilson will be too much for them to deal with. Wilson is likely going to win the MVP this season, and even with a stout pass rush against him, including getting sacked 33 times, he's come through time and time again. The Vikings offense is good but isn't better than the Seahawks offense, and Seattle will sit back and outscore the Vikes. Not having Thielen out there is another dagger for Minnesota's offense. I will lay the points and play Seattle to cover the spread.

Prediction: Seattle -3

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I think this game goes over the total. We have talented offensive players on both sides of the ball, and they are going to want to show out on Monday Night Football. Seattle has put 67 points on the board over the past two games, and the Vikings are coming off a bye week and have scored 55 points per game over their last two games. So this is likely to be a shootout, and the 49 points won't stand long. I will play the OVER in this game.

Prediction: Over 49
