Stephen Nover's NFL Total of the Week
(NFL) Green Bay vs. Minnesota, 09/13/2020 1:00 PM, Score: 43 - 34
Total: 45.00 | -108.00 Under
Bookmaker: PinnacleSports
Result: Loss
These two teams know and hate each other. The intensity level is at its peak. It's shown on the defensive end where five of the past six meetings have gone under. This includes both games last season, which had a combined 37 and 33 points, respectively. 
The Vikings are in double revenge. Minnesota's defensive line usually gives the Packers problems especially Danielle Hunter. Now the Vikings have added Yannick Ngakoue to pair with Hunter. The Vikings have a top safety tandem in Harrison Smith and Anthony Harris. Minnesota's defensive weakness are youthful and untested cornerbacks. Defensive guru Mike Zimmer has a history of coaching up cornerbacks, though.
Minnesota has a run-oriented conservative offense. Kirk Cousins is not a gunslinger. The Vikings will be staying on the ground. The Packers have switched to that style, too, under Matt LaFleur. Green Bay could be minus Billy Turner, who is its third best offensive lineman. He suffered a knee injury during practice and isn't likely to play. The Packers are thin in the offensive line and have bad receivers behind Davante Adams. 

Note, too, that the total has gone Under in 17 of the Vikings' last 20 home division games, a powerful 85 percent angle.
