Vikings vs Commanders Highlights
It’s a tightly contested series that sees the Vikings lead by a single victory over the 27 games the teams have played in previous years. One statistic that will sit nicely in the minds of Vikings fans and players alike is that they have walked away victorious in 7 of their last 10 matchups with the Washington side, with the Commanders’ last victory coming back in 2016.
The Commanders will be looking to exploit the weakness of the Viking’s defense through the 2021 regular season, with Minnesota giving up the third most yards per game on average. But they were backed by an offense that gained nearly 40 yards per game more than the Washington offense managed to muster. After a tough road trip to Indianapolis in Week 8, and with a divisional matchup against the Eagles in week 10, the Commanders will be hoping to turn the tables on their recent form against the Vikings this year.
In the event that you decide to bet on NFL games, we suggest that you choose the Vikings to come out victorious. Although this could very well be a tightly-disputed affair should the active rosters allow it, the visitors bring a barrage of offensive talents that may prove too much for their counterparts, both through the air and in the running game. Back the Vikings to cover the spread on the betting markets for this one.
