NFL Betting Preview: Minnesota Vikings vs. San Francisco 49ers
October 23, 2023
The San Francisco 49ers will travel to Minneapolis, Minnesota to face the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football in week 7 of the NFL season with the game taking place at U.S. Bank Stadium and airing nationally on ESPN and ABC at 8:15 PM ET.
San Francisco enters this game with a record of 5-1 following a 17-19 loss on the road against the Cleveland Brown while failing to cover the 9.5-point spread as a road favorite in week 6 of the NFL season. The 49ers scored 17 points while compiling a total of 215 yards offensively which included 125 passing yards and 108 rushing yards while allowing 19 points and 334 total yards defensively which included 192 passing yards and 160 rushing yards. Brock Purdy led the team in passing, completing 12 of 27 attempts for 125 yards with a touchdown and an interception while rushing for seven yards. Christian McCaffrey led the team in rushing with 11 carries for 43 yards while adding three receptions for nine yards and a touchdown. Brandon Aiyuk led the team in receiving, catching four of ten targets for 76 yards.
The Minnesota Vikings enter this game with a record of 2-4 following a 19-13 win on the road against the Chicago Bears while covering the 3-point spread as a road favorite in week 6 of the NFL season. Minnesota scored 19 points while compiling a total of 220 yards offensively which included 181 passing yards and 46 rushing yards while allowing 13 points and 275 total yards defensively which included 141 passing yards and 162 rushing yards. Kirk Cousins led the team in passing, completing 21 of 31 attempts for 181 yards and a touchdown. Alexander Mattison led the team in rushing with 18 carries for 44 yards while adding four receptions for 28 yards. T.J. Hockenson led the team in receiving, catching six of eight targets for 50 yards.
BookMaker has the San Francisco 49ers listed as 7-point favorites on the road against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night in week 7 of the NFL season. Minnesota has won six of the last ten while San Francisco has won two of the last three meetings. Both teams are 5-5 ATS in the last ten while the 49ers are 2-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. San Francisco is 4-2 ATS overall, 1-2 ATS on the road, and 4-2 ATS as a favorite this season while the Minnesota Vikings are 2-3-1 ATS overall, 0-3 ATS at home, and 0-1-1 ATS as an underdog on the year.
San Francisco has looked like one of the best teams in the NFL this season, however, their offense revolves around Christian McCaffrey who may be out for this game I am going to assume he does not play as he has not participated in practice this week and if that is the case I look for this game to follow the trend in the series and be a low-scoring affair as the under has hit in seven of the last ten and two of the last three matchups. Buy the .5 point and take the under 45 total points for this matchup on Monday night.
