Minnesota Vikings vs Cleveland Browns 10-29-17 Betting Predictions
When: 9:30 AM ET, Sunday, October 29, 2017
Where: Twickenham Stadium, London
Betting Line: Vikings -10
TV: NFL Network
The Vikings look to win their fourth straight game and pad their lead in the NFC North when they face the winless Browns on Sunday at London’s Twickenham Stadium. Four of Cleveland’s seven losses have come by a field goal, including a 12-9 overtime setback against Tennessee last week.
The Vikings (5-2) have endured injury woes on offense, as quarterback Case Keenum has played well in place of Sam Bradford (knee) while running backs Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon have stepped up since rookie Dalvin Cook (knee) was lost for the season. The Vikings’ defense has been terrific, holding four straight opponents under 275 total yards to rank fourth in the league in total defense. Minnesota gave up a season-low 208 yards in a 24-16 win over Baltimore last week.
The Browns (0-7) have been there own worst enemy with a NFL-high 19 giveaways. The Browns benched quarterback DeShone Kizer, only to go back to the rookie out of Notre Dame after Kevin Hogan struggled in his only start. Cleveland ranks ninth in the league in total defense, but the turnovers have put the defense in tough spots and caused the defense to rank 24th in scoring defense.
Vikings vs Browns Betting Prediction
The Vikings are a big favorite at 10 points in this London contest. While the Browns have looked horrible on offense the defense has kept them in games. On the other side the Vikings should be able to grind away and win this game so why take chances. I like the game to be a close low scoring game and while I am not taking the Browns to win here I think they are a live dog and will make a small side wager on the money line.
