Vikings to continue Packers woes on the road

In a week of divisional showdowns, Green Bay Packers head to NFC North rivals Minnesota Vikings looking to try and secure their first win on the road this season.

Packers mediocrity to keep trending

It has been a frustrating season for the Packers and their 4-5 record shows they have never really been able to find their stride.

As for the Vikings, they too have had a season that has struggled to find top gear but they have managed to grind out four wins in their last six games.

A defeat to the high-flying New Orleans Saints is certainly nothing to be ashamed about and a loss to Chicago Bears, although it will have hurt against an NFC North rival, is not uncommon on the road in the Windy City.

Ultimately the home advantage could make the difference and, if the Vikings can keep Packers running-back Aaron Jones quiet, then they should edge this one and are 1.57 to get the win.

Texans ready for clash of the Titans

Tennessee Titans have been one of the most inconsistent teams in the NFL this season; brilliant one week and infuriating the next.

Their 5-5 record proves just that and look at the teams they have managed to beat along the way – the Jaguars, Eagles, Cowboys and Patriots have all fallen to the Titans and even Sunday’s opponents the Houston Texans have been on the wrong end of the scoreline against Tennessee earlier this season.

However, a 38-10 thumping at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts last time out might have just knocked their confidence and another road trip is exactly what the Titans didn’t want.

Again, the home advantage could prove the decisive factor and top-of-the-table Houston are 1.93 to win with -6.5 on the full-time spread.
