The Latest Guidance On Realistic Tactics
After such strong showings in the openers, the respective coaching staffs have to feel like they are ahead of schedule. For bettors, that means assessing which team’s backups and third-stringers have the edge. Trevor Siemian (11/17, 165 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT in Week 1) and Kyle Sloter (9/11, 69 YDS, 1 TD) will handle the majority of the snaps for the Vikings, while Cody Kessler (14/17, 139 YDS, 1 TD) and Tanner Lee (4/8, 37 YDS) lead the Jacksonville offense. The explosive Corey Grant and less explosive TJ Yeldon will get a lot of work on the ground for the Jags, as Murray, Mack Brown, Roc Thomas, and Mike Boone tote the rock for Minnesota. The Vikings were able to pound out 147 yards at a 4.0 YPC clip last week, while the Jaguars only managed 72 yards on 28 carries (2.8 YPC), despite Fournette averaging 4.8 YPC. On the defensive side, the Vikings again have the edge. They have one of the deepest rosters in the NFL in terms of defensive talent, while the Jags will be missing both Jalen Ramsey and Dante Fowler, who were suspended by the team following an incident at practice. Fowler was involved in a post-practice altercation Sunday, while Ramsey delivered a profane rant directed toward the media filming the incident. https://t.co/AMXof2OqGO — SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) August 13, 2018 While Ramsey and Fowler wouldn’t have played much of the game anyway, their absence bumps everyone up a notch on the depth chart, which means the third and fourth-stringers could wind up playing more than they would have otherwise. Given all of the above, laying the points with the Vikings may appear to be the smart play at first glance, especially when you look at the teams’ recent preseason records: Minnesota is 11-3 straight-up in its last 14 preseason games, dating back to 2015, including a sterling 5-1 mark at home, while the Jaguars are just 5-8 SU in that time. But with the Vikings laying 4.5 points, betting Jacksonville ATS is the better option.
