Minnesota Vikings (6-4) vs. Denver Broncos (3-5)
As NFL Week 11 kicks off on Sunday at Denver’s Empower Field at Mile High, Minnesota Vikings with an impressive 6-4 record are scheduled to meet up against Denver Broncos who currently stand 3-5 in what promises to be a dramatic match-up between strategies and resilience. Fans and bettors, particularly those engaged in live betting, eagerly anticipate seeing how this game plays out under NBC’s primetime broadcast.
As one looks into Minnesota Vikings’ performance, their offense has been quite balanced. Led by Alexander Mattison in the rushing department, their running game has been steady but unspectacular, amassing 461 yards over 10 games with an average 3.5 yards per rush attempt average. Jordan Addison has emerged as an essential piece in their aerial attack with 45 receptions for 603 yards and 7 touchdowns under his belt – stretching out field plays while creating plays after catch essential for Vikings success.
Denver Broncos have struggled at times but possess undeniable talent. Running back Javonte Williams, limited to only seven games this season, racked up 357 rushing yards at an impressive average of 4 yards per attempt despite playing only seven. But the real standout on offense for Denver has been Courtland Sutton, leading their receiver corps with 33 receptions for 380 yards and six touchdowns; not exactly eye-popping stats but his impactful play has had significant influence over Denver’s offensive output in critical situations.

Kirk Cousins QB vs. Russell Wilson QB

Unfortunately, however, taking 26 sacks has become an ongoing problem that compromises his game this year.

Minnesota Vikings Betting Trends
The Minnesota Vikings have been outstanding against the spread (ATS), going 5-0 in their last five games and having 6 out of their 8 total point total games go UNDER their total point count total. This trend, along with their perfect record against straight up (SU), indicates a team winning games with disciplined defensive play.
Denver Broncos Betting Trends
The Broncos display an unpredictable betting record. They have gone 6-12 against the spread in their last 18 games, suggesting difficulties turning games into wins. Their home ATS record (2-4 in their last 6) doesn’t inspire confidence either; yet their history of going over against NFC teams might point towards an open and high-scoring affair.
