Every season the top rated teams typically play each other either in the postseason or the regular season. Tonight, for your viewing pleasure HC Eternal's Dallas host HC Eder's Minnesota on MNF FNL Edition, and damn, what a game this will be.
Many pundits are backing one or the other to go all the way and lift the first PS4 SML Superbowl and the odds are interesting for this massive showdown in Jerry's House.
Dallas start as 5 point favourites.
Why? Because they have been defending better than Minnesota.
Let's look at the obvious:-
70 plus points virtually guaranteed.
Jeff Demps and Adrian Peterson will both go over 100 yards.
QB's Romo and Barkley comp % over 72%.
Dallas defense best in the SML.
And now, the intangibles:-
DeMarcus Ware and Brian Robison have 20 sacks between them, but neither will be a major factor tonight. These top D Ends will be too concerned about containing the run rather than pass rushing.
Dallas O line has man-handled all before them, and if they play well Dallas will win.
Minnesota MUST stop Demps getting outside.
Ditto for AP.
Bryant and Witten, particularly off play action are hotter than Jennings and Patterson.
Expect more zone coverage than usual from both teams - AP and Demps have been torching linebackers on swing passes and screens.
Whatever happens tonight, i guarantee it will mean absolutely nothing to a playoff game further down the line, if these two were to meet again this season. Whilst Dallas are slight favourites to win this one, both teams are even money to win the Superbowl.
As you all know i have become a multi-millionaire thanks to football betting over the years and some have even claimed i am psychic. Here's my all important prediction:-
Dallas 41 - 35 Minnesota
And, if you want proof of clairvoyance - Jeff Demps will fumble tonight for a Vikings score!
Enjoy the game little people. Lets all hope they start in White and Purple, but both end up in red.
