Monday Night Football Matchup: New York Giants at Minnesota Vikings Pointspread: Vikings -5
Total: 43 points
After quarterback Teddy Bridgewater went down with an injury during training camp, a lot of people wrote off the Minnesota Vikings. And many of these observers were quick to criticize management for making the deal to bring Sam Bradford to Minneapolis. But he has thus far been pretty successful, leading the Vikings to a 3-0 record, and he will be under center once again on Monday night as the Vikes take on the New York Giants in a game that will begin at 8:30 PM ET at US Bank Stadium, the team’s new palace that cost over $1 billion to build. This game goes out live on ESPN, and BetAnySports customers as well as pay per head bookies, who can also enjoy Asian casino action and can make their deposits using the virtual currency of Bitcoin, can continue wagering even after the game begins, because of the phenomenon known as Live Betting Ultra.
The Giants really suffered some heartbreak last week, as they played well, but blew an opportunity to go to 3-0 with a 29-27 loss to the Washington Redskins. They were victimized in all kinds of different ways, including by the officials, who called eleven penalties on them, and Washington’s special teams, which burned them for 31 yards on a fake punt play.
Now they move ahead without Shane Vereen, who suffered a season-ending injury. He was valuable not only as a speed rusher, but as someone catching passes out of the backfield, and we are not sure who is going to fill that gap in the backfield.
The Vikings have turned to their defense, as most people in the BetAnySports audience probably assumed, and they have given up only 40 points in the first three games. To say they are missing key offensive personnel would be an understatement. Aside from Bridgewater, they are also operating without record-setting running back Adrian Peterson and their left tackle, Matt Kalil. Will that come back and bite them sooner or later? Well, maybe, but think about this – they have already captured victories over the Green Bay Packers and Carolina Panthers (the latter of which was on the road). So this is a formidable group indeed.
Bradford, who was the starter in Philadelphia last season and had to be at least a little upset that the team would trade him deep into training camp, has done more than just manage the offense. He has completed 68% of his passes with no interceptions through the first three games. Bradford’s arm has the ability to get this team downfield, and there are a couple of emerging stars, for certain. One of them is Stefon Diggs, the second-year wideout out of Maryland who has caught 20 passes for 325 yards thus far. Of course, running the football hasn’t been the easiest thing in the world for this crew, as no one has more than 53 total yards through these first three contests. The Giants have allowed only 3.2 yards per carry with their remodeled defense, so we will see if Minnesota is overly one-dimensional in this one.
