There are a few different ways to approach NFL London Game picks. The first option is a favored team. The Minnesota Vikings are the “road” favorite for this game. The Vikings’ offense is led by Justin Jefferson and Dalvin Cook. If the Saints’ defense can hold up, the Vikings should be able to win this game.
Jacksonville has an interesting history in London, as the Jaguars have played every game there since 2012. The Jaguars are +1.5 underdogs this year. The Jaguars have a 3-4 record in London games. Regardless of the game, there is a good chance the Jaguars will win the game.
The Atlanta Falcons are 4-0 ATS, but they’ve lost their best player Cordarelle Patterson to injury. While the Patriots are 9-0 all-time against Atlanta, they are just 4-0 since Brady joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In the other game, the Minnesota Vikings are the favorite. However, the Vikings’ quarterback situation could derail their momentum.
The NFL has a very interesting philosophy when it comes to sending games overseas. The league often sends its least exciting games, like Jets-Falcons, to games in other cities. It hopes that teams will agree to play London games because of the potential of gaining more international fans. They will likely do this by sacrificing home-field advantage.
The NFL has been traveling to England since 2007 and this year is no different. There are four games in England as part of the NFL London campaign. Two of the games will be held at the Wembley Stadium and Totten ham Hotspur Stadium. The winner of Sunday’s game will enter the season with a 4-1 record.
The New York Giants and Minnesota Vikings are the only two teams to have met in London in over three decades. They are 2-0 in their last regular season meeting, and would move to 3-0 if they win this game. Both teams are coming off of a big win last week. The Vikings, meanwhile, won a 28-25 victory over the Saints last week.
The Seattle Seahawks have been terrible on offense so far this year. However, they did show some life against the Raiders and haven’t lost in the London game yet. However, their last London game was 24-16 and bookmakers have yet to catch on to that. The Jaguars, on the other hand, are 4-4 and hope to win their second straight game.
