How To Bet On Cardinals Vikings – Minnesota Gets Back On Track

Arizona Cardinals @ Minnesota Vikings – Sunday October 21, 2012 1:00PM EST

Week six in the NFL was the nightmare that the Minnesota Vikings have been trying to avoid all season long. No matter how hard the Vikings’ defense tried, it could not contain Washington Redskins’ rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III. To add to that, the NFL betting experts watched as the Minnesota Vikings turned the ball over and gave Washington chances to score points. It was everything the Vikings had been able to avoid all season long, and it all came crashing down in one game. The good thing is that the Vikings get a chance to re-group and get back in the win column in week seven.

When the season started, the betting sites were not very surprised when the Arizona Cardinals named John Skelton as the starting quarterback. But when Skelton got hurt in the first game, the team had to call on the embattled, and well-paid, Kevin Kolb. For the first time in his tenure with the Cardinals, Kolb finally earned the starting job and unseated Skelton as the number one quarterback. When Kolb was injured in week six against the Bills, Skelton came into the game and was completely ineffective. In week seven, the Cardinals will learn what it means when people say that you don’t know what you got until it is gone.

Why the Vikings Will Win

The Minnesota Vikings have shown that, not only is the team capable of playing relatively mistake-free football, but that style of play is actually the game plan for the team all season long. The sportsbook experts are willing to give Minnesota one bad game. But if the Vikings start making a habit of bad games, then Minnesota will drop to the bottom of everyone’s Super Bowl poll. In this game, all Minnesota needs to do execute its game plan without a hitch, just like the Vikings have done four previous times this season. For the Vikings, it should be as easy as it sounds.

Why the Cardinals Will Win

One of the best attributes of Kevin Kolb is his mobility. But that mobility would also cause Kolb to make mistakes that a pocket passer would not make. John Skelton is a pocket passer that throws an incredibly accurate ball. Skelton has several weapons he can use to get the ball down field and punch it into the endzone. As long as Skelton remains calm and distributes the ball effectively, the Arizona defense can do its part by keeping the Minnesota offense in check.

The Bottom Line

The Minnesota Vikings have the chance to prove that week six was just one of those weeks and that the Vikings are, indeed, for real. With Arizona suffering key injuries at quarterback and running back, it is likely that the Minnesota defense will be able to limit the Arizona offense and help the Vikings to win the game.

Pick: Minnesota Vikings
