The Minnesota Vikings (11-2) head to Bank Of America Stadium to take on the Carolina Panthers (5-8) in this Sunday Night match up scheduled for 8:20pm ET. The Vikings secured a playoff spot last week with a win over the Bengals where Favre went 17 of 30 for 192 yards, and got a solid performance from Adrian Peterson, who rushed for 97 yards and a touchdown. Favre may have to get it done for the second straight week without one of his favorite targets, rookie receiver Percy Harvin, who is been battling migraine headaches. The Vikings, who have already secured a playoff spot, can clinch the NFC North for the second straight season with a win on Sunday or a Green Bay loss. The Panthers coach John Fox has elected to start quarterback Matt Moore for the thirds straight week over veteran Jake Delhomme, who has thrown 18 interceptions to eight touchdowns and has a broken finger. Moore has completed 35 of 62 for 421 yards and one touchdown this year. Betting lines, trends and predictions are listed below for this Vikings vs Panthers week 15 match up.

Minnesota vs Carolina Betting Predictions:
Final Score – Vikings 24 @ Panthers 13
Spread – Lay it down on the Vikings to cover the spread this week. Brett Favre and the sixth ranked Vikings offense will get the job done against the Panthers 21st ranked defense. With Jack Delhomme out, the Panthers are going to rely on running back DeAngelo Williams who will be up against to big of a challenge against this fourth ranked Vikings rush defense. Look for another big game from Adrian Peterson and help carry the Vikings offense to a double digit win against this Panthers rush defense, which ranks near the bottom of the league. Bet on the Minnesota Vikings to beat the 9 point spread this week (-110).
Over/Under – I like the total to stay under the 43 points. In the last 9 games played by these teams the total has gone under the number, and head to head under is 4-1 in their last five meetings. Look for both teams to keep the ball on the ground the majority of the time, causing the clock to keep rolling and bringing this one under the number. Bet on the under in this game (-110).
