I will be upset if there are no worries during Wild card weekend that starts today. It’s upset may not occur in Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers matchand maybe not with Los Angeles Loaders-Jacksonville Jaguarp. but seem to be convinced that Brian Daboll, Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley, and company.

What are the chances?

According OddsChecker USA83.3 percent of all bets on the Giants-Vikings moneyline were placed on Big Blue. 83.3 percent! It sounds absurd, but it may not be as crazy as it sounds. First, the 6-3 matchup was historically fairly even. Six seeds since 2002 are 22-18 years old during the wild card weekend. Remember, these are all road games. Not only are the three seeds supposed to be the better teams, but they also have their own field advantage, and yet most often six seeds walks away victorious.

Do you really trust the Vikings?

Second, at this point, the Vikings had been considered crooks for weeks. Every Viking the fan has already heard the points difference arguments. This is the only team in NFL history with which 13 or more wins and negative points difference. Hell, they are the only team with 12 or more wins to finish with a negative points difference. Many times they were embarrassed on the national stage. That said, when the games are close, Vikings usually do very well.

Keeping it close

Somehow, the Vikings have an amazing 11-0 record in games to one. They can’t be stopped when the going gets tough. Remember one of those 11 wins was on a 61-yard field goal to beat the Giants in Week 16. However, the Giants are rested now. They sat down with the entire starting lineup to prepare for this match. The Vikings handled it too, with Kirk Cousins ​​only playing 54 percent of offensive snaps, Justin Jefferson only 51 percent, and star left tackle Christian Darrisaw only played 54. Still, it’s not a whole week off. They were trying to win. This week they spent an important time preparing for the Chicago Bears. Given the Giants Week 18 roadmap, I wouldn’t be shocked if they’ve been preparing for Vikings for two weeks now. They’re going into this game with a plan so perfect that Batman could write one.

History on their side?

Minnesota has experience in this area but on the side. In 2021, five point guards appeared in the playoffs for the first time. They went 1-4 in those games. Daniel Jones will perform for the first time after the season tomorrow. This will be Cousins’ fourth appearance (third as a starter) and his last appearance was his first post-season win. He’s got that metaphorical splinter on his shoulder, and it’s no longer a burden.

Have a dog in the fight

The Vikings go into this match as three-point favourites. Throughout the season, we’ve seen that bettors are more likely to bet on the underdogs than on the favorites in the hope of a hefty payout. However, if that were the case, bettors would not focus on the Giants but on the Dolphins (+13.5) and Seahawks (+9.5). The fact that bettors are betting on the Giants three-point loser shows that they truly believe the team will come out victorious. While I worry that the Giants have only won two of their last eight games, the odds in betting, this outrageous one, are not formulated out of thin air. You have to follow the money and that makes the Giants’ chances of winning all the better for me.
