Week 2’s Monday Night Football sees the return of the Vikings vs Eagles as the Eagles look to recreate their post-season success against their opponents, most recently the NFC Championship game of 2018. Successes for the home team against their opponents have been limited since then, though, with the Vikings taking victories both home and on the road in their last two encounters.

Vikings vs Eagles Highlights
Lincoln Financial Field is the setting for the Minnesota Vikings’ road trip this week, facing off against an opponent who has haunted them in the postseason over the years, but also one who has failed to find their feet since the success of the 2017 season.
A strengthened Vikings defense might hold the key to success in this game, with the introduction of 4 new defensive acquisitions after the departure of Xavier Woods and Anthony Barr in the off-season. Indeed, it might prove valuable in their success over the course of the season, with a limited divisional challenge outside of the Green Bay Packers. Under the guidance of a new coach and general manager, the Minnesota Vikings will hope to improve on a lackluster 2021 season that saw them finish 8-9 after a few very disappointing games on the road.
NFL betting odds are likely to support the home team covering the spread, with the Eagles returning boasting a strengthened wide receiver corps, a promising young quarterback, and the retention of a number of Philadelphia household names in defense. If you are looking to bet on NFL games, look to the Devonta Smith and A.J Brown pairing for receiving yards. For those seeking bigger odds, Eagles kicker Jake Elliot holds a 61-yard field goal personal record and can’t be ruled out if the opportunity arises.
