NFL experts are predicting another 49ers victory this weekend over the Vikings.

The undefeated San Francisco 49ers will have their second road test of the young 2012 season when they face the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday at the Mall of America Field, though many NFL experts see the Niners continuing their winning ways.

CBS Sports' Pete Prisco is predicting a 24-20 49ers victory this weekend. He feels the 49ers could have a letdown after two weeks of big time wins, though not enough to equal a loss.

Over at ESPN, they are heavily in favor of the 49ers, with every single NFL expert polled picking San Francisco over Minnesota this week.

Walter Football is predicting a dominant victory in the Niners favor, going on the road and taking out the Vikings 23-6. They also note that 92 percent of all Vegas bets on this game so far have been in the 49ers favor as well.
