Week 17 NFL odds: Packers vs. Vikings

USA TODAY Sports

Green Bay a road favorite against an amply-motivated Minnesota squad.

Despite playing at home for their playoff lives, the Minnesota Vikings are 3.5-point underdogs against the Green Bay Packers Sunday. Kickoff of the regular season finale is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. ET at the Metrodome.

The Vikings enter Sunday's game tied with Chicago for the NFC's final playoff spot. Minnesota controls its own destiny; a win against Green Bay and the Vikings are in. With a loss, the Vikings will need some help to fend off a handful of challengers, with the Chicago Bears set to step into the fray with a win over Detroit. On top of the playoff implications of Sunday's game, Vikings running back will be chasing Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record. Peterson needs 208 yards to match the mark.

Green Bay is not without motivation for Sunday's game. A win would give the Packers the NFC's second playoff seed, a first round bye, and a home game in the Divisional Round. Green Bay defeated Minnesota 23-14 at Lambeau Field on December 2 in the teams' previous 2012 contest, and has won nine of its last ten games.
