Contrarian bettors often find value by "buying on bad news", so are professionals using this strategy for today's Vikings vs. Giants game and backing Minnesota?

Diggs has 13 receptions and 209 receiving yards on the season.

The elite Vikings defense caused trouble for Jones all afternoon as the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft completed just 21-of-38 passes for 182 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

With a grade of 61.7, Kirk Cousins ranks as the 24th quarterback in the league. Let us know in the comments section below or on social media. The passing game is back in synch with the run.

After the game, Thielen voiced his pleasure with the Vikings' play-action success.


Following a 52-yard kick-off return by rookie Corey Ballentine, Jones hit fellow rookie Darius Slayton for a 35-yard touchdown to cap off a 50-yard drive. The Giants couldn't even try to run inside the red zone, so thanks to the leaky line they ended up moving backwards. On the season, Rudolph has only five catches for 32 yards and has only been targeted seven times.

President Donald Trump called the quarterback to "briefly congratulate him and the Vikings on the win in New York", Minnesota TV station WCCO reported.

All things considered, plus the fact that Kirk Cousins was having a rare productive game, this could've been a lot worse than it actually was for the Giants.

Exactly what a happy player says, right? Minnesota will not always have the home-field gain, nevertheless, they really do love a 5.5-point gain from this disperse. Oshane Ximines, David Mayo and Nate Stupar got starts.

Bailey added two field goals after Jones' TD pass and Barr got his safety, pushing the lead to 18-7.


Giants starting RB Wayne Gallman, in for Saquon Barkley, was lost to a concussion in the first quarter.

Cousins - who had drawn the ire of his top receiver, Thielen, after struggles in recent weeks - got back on track against the Giants' porous defense.

Unfortunately for them, Pat Shurmur called a predictable rush up the middle with rookie running back Jonathan Hillman on the one-yard line that the Vikings snuffed out easily for a safety.

That won't change on Thursday night with Tate in and Shepard out, but at least the veteran wide receiver won't see a lack of targets this time around. But this make-up group was able to hold the Vikings offence to just two touchdowns through the full 60 minutes.
