Beating the Spread Game of the week: Minnesota [email protected] Seahawks

Vikings vs Seahawks preview!

To bet this game go check out Betlion Kenia.

This is a matchup of two teams that entered the season with Super Bowl aspirations. The Seahawks and especially Russell Wilson still have those aspirations while the Vikings have struggled to a disappointing 1-3 start.

The Vikings are coming off a win over Houston last week but this is a game they must win to get back into playoff contention. The Seahawks have been red-hot on offense, but serious questions surround a defense that has underperformed so far. Let’s take a look at this important Week 5 matchup and some of the keys to winning this game for both teams.

Dalvin Cook has to have a big game for the Vikings to have a chance

Cook torched the Texans last week and he will have to have another huge effort on Sunday night if the Vikings are to have a chance to win this game. A big performance from Cook will set up Kirk Cousins’s play-action passing and will give the Vikings a chance to score a lot of points. A bad outing from Cook, and this game will be a wrap for the Seahawks.

The Vikings have to contain D.K. Metcalf

This seems to be almost impossible for any team and the Vikings are no exception to the rule. Minnesota has questions in the secondary so Metcalf will be a huge issue for the Vikings in this game. Plus, don’t forget guys like Tyler Lockett.

Prediction: This one looks to be an easy pick with Seattle winning but when you are betting a seven-point line it makes it tricky just because the Seahawks defense has not been great this season. I could see Dalvin Cook and Justin Jefferson going off for big games and covering, but the more likely scenario is Russell Wilson torches the Vikings secondary early and the Vikings are forced to go away from the run by the second quarter. Then, the game falls at Kirk Cousins feet which will lead to an easy Seahawks win.

Take Seattle and give the 7 points. Seahawks 34  Vikings 20
