MINTY BETS: We've got a Sunday Night Football game guys between the Seattle Seahawks hosting the Minnesota Vikings.

The Seahawks are a seven point home favorite, and the total is set at a high, high 57 and 1/2. I'm gonna go first here.

The Seahawks are 4-0 now, straight up, and against the spread.

And I don't like to bet on a quarterback who is completing 75% of his passes, is third in passing yards, and is first in passing touchdowns.

The man has recorded 16 passing touchdowns and only two interceptions, while his opponent Kirk Cousins has only recorded six touchdowns and six interceptions.

It does make me a little nervous that the Seahawks are three and nine against the spread when favored by seven points or more.

But this season, they've won three out of four games by seven points or more, so give me the Seahawks minus seven.

Let's go to Matt. What's your pick for this game?

MATT GOTHARD: Well we all know that I love two things more than anything in the world of betting.

I love big money line underdogs, and I love Kirk Cousins.

So you know I have to be confident about this pick when I say I'm taking Seattle minus seven.

There's no way that the Vikings are going to be able to move the ball against this Seattle run defense.

And if they're not going to be able to run the ball, that's a lot to ask of Mr. Kirk this year. He has looked very rough.

There's no way I'm gonna bet on my guy. Usually I wouldn't bet on this game, but because we do Sunday Night Football, I'm taking Seattle minus seven.

There's no magic this Sunday night.

MINTY BETS: Ooh. OK, Jared, is it a sweep? Are we unanimous?

JARED QUAY: I'm just in awe right here that Gothard is betting against his boys.

Gothard's a Vikings guy! He's a money line-- you know what? I don't know if I wanna touch it now.

No, honestly, I think Russell Wilson's playing tremendous, and the Vikings defense isn't going to stop him.

The other X-factor is the Seahawks defense isn't very good this year.

And with that being the case, give me the over here. Overs have been hitting a lot right now.

And I just don't want to touch it, because I do think it can be competitive, possibly overtime.

So I'm gonna just take the over it with the points here.
