NFL Week 14: 4-Pack of Picks

3 of 5

Vikings @ Ravens -6.5 — O/U 42.5

Baltimore has averaged nearly 21 points per game; the Vikings defense gives up plenty more than that, 30.5 points per contest to be exact. On offense the Vikings may be better with Cassel under center. Adrian Peterson is still their best weapon. He’ll need over 200 and a couple TDs to keep the Vikings in the game. The Vikings have given it up via long passes, short passes, running plays, and any other way a team could move the ball. I look for Joe Flacco to have his best day of the season. He’ll stay away from Xavier Rhodes, the Viking’s RCB, and even without much of a running game to rely on, the Ravens win. The Ravens should handle the Vikings easily, the Champs are too talented. Prediction: Ravens -6.5 and over 42.5
