·1 min read

After opening up as an underdog against the Green Bay Packers last week, it happened once again in week two with the Philadelphia Eagles as a 2.5-point favorite over the Minnesota Vikings on Tipico Sportsbook.

The line also has the over/under at 51.5 points. This line signals that this is a pick-em game on a neutral field due to the home team getting spotted three points for the home field advantage.

Going into Monday night’s matchup, both teams had impressive offensive performances. The Vikings jumped out to a big lead over the Packers with a myriad of concepts, including a deep crosser to Justin Jefferson for an explosive touchdown.

On the Eagles side, they jumped out to a 17-point lead before allowing the Lions to get back into the game. They ran an incredibly balanced offense with quarterback Jalen Hurts throwing for 239 yards and the team rushing for 216 yards.

The interesting element of this matchup will be in the trenches. The Vikings defense garnered four sacks and 18 pressures against Aaron Rodgers while the Eagles have one of the more intimidating interior duos in Fletcher Cox and Jordan Davis.
