Titans Vikings Betting Tips – Vikings Keep Winning Streak Alive

Tennessee Titans @ Minnesota Vikings – Sunday October 7, 2012 4:25PM EST

It was difficult to count how many times the Monday Night Football broadcast team said, in disbelief, that the Bears needed to go 3-1 just to tie the Minnesota Vikings for the NFC North lead. The football betting experts are more than willing to concede that no one saw the Minnesota Vikings coming. But the way that Minnesota is winning football games is really not that difficult to picture. The Vikings do not turn the ball over, it plays great defense and it has one of the best running backs in the history of the game. When you break it down, it really isn’t that difficult to believe at all.

The Tennessee Titans have had to hand the ball back to veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck because no one is really sure how long Jake Locker will be out with a separated shoulder. The betting websites are reporting that it is not Locker’s throwing shoulder, which is good news. But a separated shoulder still hurts and Locker cannot be in the pocket knowing that if he lands wrong with a 300-pound defensive lineman on him, then it is going to hurt. So the Titans will go with Hasselbeck until Locker can return, and that really is not such a bad thing.

Why the Vikings Will Win

Minnesota quarterback Christian Ponder is only averaging one touchdown throw per game, but he has zero interceptions. Running back Adrian Peterson is only averaging around 80 yards per game and he only has two touchdowns, but he has not fumbled the ball this season. The online casino players know that protecting the ball is a key to winning games. When you throw in the fact that the Vikings have the eighth ranked defense in the league and can get mad pressure on the opposing quarterback, then you get an idea as to why the Minnesota Vikings are 3-1.

Why the Titans Will Win

The fans in Tennessee do not cringe when the team has to put Matt Hasselbeck in at quarterback because there isn’t much of a drop-off from Locker to Hasselbeck. Some may say that, for now, it is an upgrade. But Hasselbeck is also prone to injury, and that is not going to help a Tennessee team that is struggling to block at the offensive line. The Titans need more consistent play from its offensive line if the team is going to win football games.

The Bottom Line

The Minnesota Vikings are not playing some mystical kind of football that no one can figure out. The Vikings protect the football and play good defense. It is actually a very simple formula, but it requires the proper personnel to carry it out. The Titans are still struggling for an identity, and losing its starting quarterback is not going to help.

Pick: Minnesota Vikings
