We reached week 10 of the 2022-23 NFL season and, in the blink of an eye, we are in the second half of the season, with all teams looking to close the regular round in the best possible way searching for their ticket to the postseason.
For now, we can only highlight two teams that have been playing at a level above the rest so far this season, Philadelphia Eagles, who remain undefeated, and it is only a matter of time before they get the ticket to the postseason, and the Minnesota Vikings, who have lost only one game and come to this week 10 with 6 consecutive victories.
Minnesota and Buffalo have met 14 times in league history, with the Vikings holding an 8-6 series advantage. However, the Vikings have lost four of their last five games against the Bills dating back to the 2002 season.

Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet the Bills
The Buffalo Bills were riding an excellent winning streak before losing to the Jets in week 9. We’ll see if the Bills can stop the Vikings and spoil their streak, as Buffalo tries to get back to winning ways and maintain their undefeated run at home.
Bills quarterback Josh Allen is one of this season’s top MVP candidates after an outstanding first half of the season. However, an elbow injury suffered in the final minutes of last week’s loss to the Jets has set off alarm bells in Buffalo.
With a team as powerful as the visiting Vikings, the Bills need their best offensive weapon for this game. Allen has accumulated 2,403 yards and 19 touchdowns through the air this season plus 392 yards and four touchdowns on the ground.
Allen’s possible absence for this game leaves the door open for veteran Case Keenum, who has just two starts in the league since 2019, to enter the game.
Why Bet the Vikings
On the other hand, we have the team (not counting the Eagles) most inspired in this first half of the season, Minnesota Vikings, who, as mentioned, come in with an excellent streak of 6 consecutive wins and comfortably leading the NFC North with a 7-1 record.
Minnesota’s most notable win during their current streak is against the Miami Dolphins from Week 6. The Vikings defeated the Dolphins 24-16. Their only loss of the season came in Week 2 against the Eagles.
We do not doubt that the main architect for the Vikings to having this great season is their experienced quarterback Kirk Cousins, who, in the words of his coach “This guy, no matter if he gets knocked down, always comes back and leads us to a win“
Cousins has an excellent record of 197/304 pass completions this season for 64.8% with 13 touchdown passes and 6 interceptions. This is supported by the running of Dalvin Cook, who has 608 cumulative yards and 5 touchdowns, which are the main offensive weapons for the Vikings this season.
Free Buffalo Bills vs. Minnesota Vikings Betting Pick
As we mentioned, the future of this game could be decided by what happens with Bills quarterback Josh Allen.
But we should also highlight the fact that, despite the Vikings having a 7-1 record, they have not faced strong teams (only the Eagles), this season.
At MyBookie.ag we can see that there is a Moneyline that favors Buffalo Bills at -193, while Minnesota Vikings start at +156.
Even though Josh Allen may not be available for this game, our pick is a Buffalo Bills win, and we also suggest the SPREAD bet at -3.5 on the Bills.
Look for a straight win on the Moneyline Buffalo Bills. If you put $100 on the Bills at -193, you’ll be looking at a $51.81 win with a total payout of $151.81.
