Vikings vs Commanders Prediction Week 9

Early NFL predictions and picks are from ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI).
Vikings: 52.1% to win
Commanders: 47.3% to win

Oddsmakers and ESPN's FPI both see this being a close contest, but have Minnesota ultimately pulling it out. I'm in agreement that Washington could make this a serious game. The Vikings' offense hasn't been as explosive as expected, which means the Commanders should be able to play their grindy, run-first style of football and keep Minnesota's playmakers off the field. The Commanders' defense has stepped up in recent weeks as well, allowing 21 points or fewer in each of their last three contests. I like Commanders +3 (-115) here with the Vikings' offense being a tad inconsistent so far.
