Week 16 Tuesday NFL Game – Vikings at Eagles Picks & Betting Odds & Lines

Our Pick – Philadelphia Eagles (-14) over Minnesota Vikings

A (very) rare NFL matchup this week to finish out week 16 action as the Vikings play at Philadelphia on a Tuesday(!) because of the snow out on Sunday night.  This game is being broadcast on NBC, bumping “So You Think You Can Dance” from its normal Tuesday night spot.

Game Overview

This is not a particularly important game for the Vikings since they cannot make the playoffs, and the Eagles are trying to keep alive the hope for a first round bye in the 2010 NFL Playoffs with a win over the Vikings this week and a win in Week 17 over the Dallas Cowboys.

Philly has everything to win and Minnesota has nothing to lose. The Vikings should really try to tank this game to improve their chances in the 2011 NFL draft in the Quarterback Bowl that features Andrew Luck as well as some very good depth at the incoming collegiate QB field.

Weather should still be somewhat of a factor as it is still cold and while Brett Favre and Adrian Peterson have not been ruled out yet, they are both listed as Questionable.

If either of those players are out for the Vikings, prepare for even more of a blow out that we expect already with a full healthy roster.

I predict 35-17 win for the Eagles in this bizarro Tuesday NFL matchup.
