VIKINGS at RAMS
8:20 p.m., Rams by 6 ½, 50
HANK’S HONEYS: Ten teams have crossed two time zones to play in a West Coast Thursday nighter and they’ve all lost, not just SU, but ATS. But as weird as it sounds backing a team that just got throttled at home by the Bills against an offense that can’t be stopped, we think the Vikes keep this close. Under Mike Zimmer, Vikes have been great ATS as dogs (20-9) and after a loss (17-8) and they’re getting a load of points. Aqib Talib is out, Marcus Peters is hurting and the Rams have had problems getting to the quarterback off the edges. Kirk Cousins is a different QB when given time and he’ll be getting back Dalvin Cook to help him out in the running game.
IF I WERE A BETTING MAN: Vikings and the over.
