LOS ANGELES – The Minnesota Vikings will travel to play the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 10. The odds suggest the Chargers will end up with a win in a close game.
Betting The Spread: LAC -3.0
A lot of the noise surrounding the game is centered around Dalvin Cook and his legal issues. However, he is expected to play on Sunday and could be in line for a huge day against the Los Angeles Chargers’ porous rush defense.
The Chargers allow a league-worst 161.6 yards per game on the ground, about 25 more yards than the next worst team.
Chargers vs Vikings Spread Odds
- Los Angeles Chargers -3.0 -110
- Minnesota Vikings +3.0 -110
NFL betting sites have seen some line movement in the Chargers’ direction, possibly as a result of the Minnesota Vikings dealing with COVID-19 issues. However, the Packers and Cardinals have shown in the last few weeks alone that the market may move too much in response to COVID tests.
Some bettors may even decide to go with Minnesota on the moneyline for some extra value. Although the Vikings are 3-5 and the Chargers are 5-3, Los Angeles is the team with a negative point differential while Minnesota has a positive scoring margin.
Vikings vs Chargers Moneyline Odds
- Minnesota Vikings +145
- Los Angeles Chargers -170
However, taking Minnesota with the points is obviously a safer play as the Chargers haven’t covered a 3.0-point spread in any of the last three weeks, while only two of the Vikings’ five losses have come by more than 3.0 points.
Betting The Total: 53.0 Points
Those betting on the NFL may have picked up the trend in the Vikings’ away games. Minnesota is averaging over 30 points per game on the road this year which is a large reason why the OVER has hit in each of the last six Minnesota road games.
Vikings vs Chargers Total Odds
- OVER 53.0 -115
- UNDER 53.0 -105
The average Vikings game is total just 35.0 points at home, but an astounding 61.25 points on the road. Plus, the Chargers are often seeing higher-scoring games at home as their average total is 54.75 on their own turf compared to just 45.25 when on the road.
With the Vikings having a favorable matchup with their rushing attack and the trends of this type of game being high scoring on both sides, the total may simply be set too low, even if there’s shading on the OVER.
The game will begin at 4:05 p.m. EST and can be seen on FOX.
