Week 9 NFL Free Picks

Preview and pick for the Sunday NFL matchup between the Commanders and Vikings.

Week 9 - Minnesota or Washington?

The Vikings are in Washington later today. On the surface, the game seems to be a head scratcher. Yet, we are more than confident enough to side with the Vikings today. They have quietly played some good teams and have shown they are a team that is going to make some noise in January. Minnesota Vikings free pickThey’re 6-1 and, aside from a Week 2 loss to the Eagles, have won their last five game against Detroit, New Orleans, Chicago, Miami, and Arizona.

The Commanders are 4-4 for the season. They beat the 2-6 Jaguars in their opening game and are currently on a three game winning streak after beating the 3-5 Bears, the 3-5 Packers and 3-4 Colts. Washington Minnesota predictionIt's easy to see that the Commanders have beaten four teams with a combined record of 9-20 and lost to four teams (Detroit, Philadelphia, Dallas and Tennessee) with a combined record of 20-10. Washington's three game winning streak was due to several head scratching plays, which might have turned them into a few more loses.

In the NFL football betting odds posted on this game by the folks at GTBets, Green Bay is the road favorite.

Minnesota Vikings               -3 (-114)
Washington Commanders + 3 (+104)

Over 43.5 points -109
Under 43.5 points -109

Checking out the real numbers for the week, the Commanders are the 6th worst team in points scored, and the Vikings just happen to be the 6th best team on defending points.

The Line is 3 and perhaps in some sportsbooks 3.5. We suggest you play it at -3 or buy it down to three. The Vikings are the better team and Kirk Cousins will be playing a little harder than usual, in order to show Washington’s ownership a thing or two about trading QBs.
