Vikings vs. Packers 2022 NFL Week 17 Odds, Preview & Pick

By Jeff Stinger

One team stands in the way of the Green Bay Packers staying alive in the postseason hunt, and that is none other than the Minnesota Vikings. The first meeting between these two long-time NFC North rivals occurred way back in the first week of the regular season with the Vikings setting the tone for their absurdly successful campaign. Can the Packers stay alive for one more week, or will the Vikes put them out of their misery once and for all?

Nitrobetting is ready to equip its bettors with the latest news, NFL odds, and special features for the entire duration of the 2022 NFL season. This time, let’s take a closer look at the upcoming week 17 clash between the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers.

Why Bet on the Minnesota Vikings?

A 27-24 win over the New York Giants is just another day in the office for the clutch Minnesota Vikings, who’ve won a new NFL record 11 straight contests that were decided by a single scoring possession. Kicker Greg Joseph delivered another massive game-winning field goal; this time a 61-yarder to deal a huge blow to the Giants’ own playoff bid.

Kirk Cousins was fantastic under center, carving up New York’s secondary for 299 passing yards and three passing touchdowns. Top wideout Justin Jefferson (133 receiving yards, one TD), and tight end T.J. Hockenson (109 yards, 2 TDs) ruled the air this past weekend as stud running back Dalvin Cook was held to just 64 rushing yards on 14 carries.

With the offense still playing lights out, some credit has to be given to Minnesota’s defense that refuses to break after being bent time and again. Minny’s stop unit is middling at best, yet the team just finds a way to win every tight contest that it has been in. The Vikes’ only victory with a double-digit lead came against Green Bay in Week 1, but chances are that we’re in for another nail-biter with how Minny’s outings have been for the majority of their campaign.

Why Bet on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?

The Green Bay Packers needed five specific outcomes to work in their favor in Week 16 to keep their playoff dreams alive. As though Santa was a real Cheesehead, they were gifted with all four of those desired results, beginning with their huge 26-20 win over the Miami Dolphins on Christmas Day.

The Packers also benefitted from the losses to the Seahawks, Lions, Commanders, and the aforementioned Giants to remain mathematically alive for a wild-card spot in the NFC playoff race. Aaron Rodgers pulled out all the stops against the Dolphins, as his 238 passing yards, one passing TD, and one INT were just enough to pick up Green Bay’s third consecutive win.

While the Packers’ offense has yet to reach its full potential, it’s a good thing that their defense has picked up the slack during their current win streak. Over the last three games, their D has allowed just an average of 17 points to their opponents. Rodgers and Co. still need some help by way of losses to the other teams outside the playoff bubble as mentioned earlier. They’re hoping that their winning momentum will finally break the Vikings’ unprecedented string of good luck in close battles.

Vikings vs. Packers Expert Betting Predictions

The stage is set for the Packers to avenge their Week 1 loss to the Vikings, as this week’s clash is on their home field and they have a ton of momentum entering the contest. However, Minny’s magical season has been hard to deny. With the Vikings being underdogs in this specific game, we’re inclined to side with them over Green Bay in what we expect to be another narrow win for the Purple Eaters to the dismay of Packers fans in attendance.
