Thoughts: The Vikings defeated Green Bay last week to end the regular season and secure a playoff berth. That game was played in Minneapolis but Saturday’s game with take place in Green Bay. I don’t see Minnesota beating Green Bay two weeks in a row so look for the Packers to win this one. On the flip side, the spread is very high so give me the Vikings with the points as well as the over.
