Vikings @ Eagles NFL Thursday betting picks – September 14, 2023

Vikings vs Eagles NFL Week 2 betting picks

Thursday Night Football returns for Week 2 of the NFL with an exciting matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Minnesota Vikings at Lincoln Financial Field. Here are our free NFL betting picks for Thursday, September 14.

Vikings @ Eagles spread pick: Minnesota +7

Neither of these teams played to their potential in Week 1. The Vikings lost a winnable game, and the Eagles barely eked out a victory in a contest they were expected to dominate. With a Thursday game on short rest, we anticipate more mistakes from both sides. Consequently, we’re inclined to take the heavy underdogs to keep it close. While the Vikings have a struggling defense, the Eagles’ offense appeared out of sync last weekend, and it might take a couple of weeks to find its rhythm. On the flip side, the Vikings looked explosive in their passing game, whereas the Eagles surrendered the fourth-highest number of passing yards among all teams in Week 1.

Minnesota Vikings +7


A.J. Brown receiving yards pick: Over 72.5

A.J. Brown has significantly bolstered the profile of the Eagles’ offense. Although the star receiver had a modest 79 yards in Week 1, he’s more than capable of surpassing that figure. The Vikings struggled last week to contain another big-bodied receiver, Mike Evans, who torched them with a 28-yard touchdown catch late in the game as the Buccaneers saluted in Minnesota. Brown, a more talented player than Evans, should exploit his size advantage and dominate on Thursday against a vulnerable Vikings secondary.

Vikings anytime TD scorer pick: Alexander Mattison

While Minnesota running back Alexander Mattison didn’t have an exceptional performance in Week 1, he was on the field a lot and managed to score through the air. He is likely to see significant playing time in this game – especially in goal-line situations, where his physicality makes him a prime option. Despite the Eagles boasting a strong run defense, Mattison can make an impact in the passing game, and given our expectation that the Vikings will score in bunches, this represents a great value bet.
