Let’s take a look at tonight’s game and see where we can find an angle:

My initial thought on this game: GROSS. Both teams rank bottom of the league in offensive efficiency (PIT: 28th/MIN: 20th). Minnesota ranks 11th in points per game (PPG), while Pittsburgh sits at 21st. Despite their histories, their defensive rankings are not great. Minnesota ranks 25th in opponent PPG and Pittsburgh is 21st in the NFL.

Both teams have statistically bad defenses and their offensives are lackluster at best. Adam Thielen is out, Dalvin Cook might be out, and Big Ben looks like he’s already retired. My gut was to go with the over because of the poor defenses, but I just can’t trust Big Ben to do anything worthwhile right now for his offense. 

Minnesota is averaging 25.7 points per game, and has scored less than 24 just three times this season. The Steelers are 19th in defensive success rate vs. the pass and they rank 14th vs. the run. I expect the Vikings to pass the ball with ease, even without Adam Thielen. Don’t forget, they still have Justin Jefferson and both KJ Osborn and Tyler Conklin have had success when targeted in the pass game. Trust the Vikings offense vs. the Steelers defense.

Pick: Vikings Team Total O23.5
