The Cincinnati Bengals host the Minnesota Vikings for a rare Saturday NFL match-up. Both teams are 7-6 with the Vikings sitting in the playoffs as of now and the Bengals sitting three spots out. A win would be massive for both sides while a loss could be detrimental to either team's playoff chances.
Let's check out who the experts are picking in this AFC/NFC showdown.

The Pick: Bengals 27, Vikings 17
Breech didn't have a write-up for this game but he has the Bengals winning by double-digit points. This wouldn't be shocking considering the Bengals offense and defense played well this past week and the Vikings offense scored just three measly points.

The Pick: Bengals 23, Vikings 17
Prisco's reasoning for picking the Bengals is that he doesn't think Nick Mullens will be able to do enough for the Vikings in his first start. Prisco also thinks that Jake Browning will play well in his fourth start.
