What is going on with the Vikings? Adam Thielen runs his mouth, Kirk Cousins apologizes, Zimmer ain’t happy about any of it, and Diggs wants out.
Add all that drama with the fact that Delvin Cook got shut down last week by the Bears and what do you get? An offense that is closer to imploding than one that will figure it out.
The Giants defense is doing ok vs the run (The Vikings bright spot) and pretty poor against the pass (The Vikings $28 million dollar problem)
Too confusing, let’s back it up the brain cells.
Vikings are playing their second game in a row on the road, outdoors. The G-Men are playing their second in a row at home.
The Giants seem to be piecing it together, and the Vikings seems to be falling apart. This one could go either way, but I don’t expect the winner to run away with it. It’ll be close, so we’ll take the 5 points.

NY Giants pulled off a backdoor cover last week. But, with Saquon out until further notice that delivers a big hit to their stock.
Daniel Danny “Dimes” Jones looked good in his first regular season action. Dimes keeps it rolling at home this week.
Washington Defense is bad. Really bad. Their offense is slightly better. Slightly. Nothing to see here in Washington until further notice.
Danny Dimes leads NYFG to an easy -3 Cover. Taking the Under 47.

New York heads into this one with a newly appointed field general in Daniel Jones. Does that spark the Giants offense? The Dog thinks so. So long as the Giants make Saquon a major part of the game plan, they will have fixed their two biggest problems.
This line is too big to not take NYG. TB got out with a W on the road last week against a Panthers team that isn’t looking so good. They might give one back; they might prove they’ll be competitive. The Dog going with NYG ATS +6.5
By no means is this one going to be a shootout though. How much is Pat Shurmur going to open the playbook for Daniel Jones? Bucs running game looks pretty average at best. The Dog says this one plays out as such.
Both teams will be so worried about getting the W that watching this one will be like watching paint dry. A conservative
chess checkers match. A field position, punt-fest, clock management symposium with either team winning by a FG or less.
Back to back for the Bills @ MetLife Stadium. Bills Mafia was shut out in the first half last week but had enough fight to come from behind with 17 2nd half points to get the dub. If they can carry some of that 4th quarter momentum into this game, they might be tough to beat. But The Dog doesn’t see that happening.
Let’s face it, The New York Football Giants have the easiest problem to fix coming into week 2. Feed the most effective player in the NFL. 14 touches for Saquan last week?!?!?! What was that? Who cares, easy fix.
FEED THE BEST PLAYER IN THE NFL….. and feed The Dog.
G men get ahead early and don’t let up.

Now, who has service? I need you to place this bet for me.
