Vikings vs Eagles Prediction & Pick
This game is slated as a pick 'em for a reason. Both of these teams feature dynamic QB-WR duos and defenses capable of making big plays. That is why the support of the crowd will play such a big role in this matchup. Philadelphia has posted a 8-2 record in its last 10 home games against Minnesota.
Jefferson ran wild in Week 1, so it'll be up to cornerbacks Darius Slay and James Bradberry to keep him under control on Monday night. If they can succeed in that task, the Eagles should be able to get into the end zone enough times to earn a close win. A late field goal by kicker Jake Elliott will seal it.
Final Score Prediction: Vikings: 28 | Eagles: 31

Vikings vs Eagles Best Bet
All NFL betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
As mentioned above, this game features no shortage of offensive stars. Hurts, Cousins, Jefferson, Brown, Dalvin Cook and Miles Sanders are just a few names that stick out. Points are going to be scored against two defenses that ranked outside the top 15 NFL teams in total DVOA rating in 2021.
Keep in mind the over has hit in each of Philadelphia's last five home games and it has hit in nine of Minnesota's last 11 away games. Combine stellar offenses with perfect September weather and it's no wonder this total is set pretty high. It's still worth backing as the best bet in this close contest.
Bet: Over 51.5 Points (-105)
