One week after man-handling the Chicago Bears, Mike White and the New York Jets will take on the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday, Dec. 4 at 1 p.m. ET.
A win would be massive for the Jets, who are only a game out of first place in the AFC East. Meanwhile, the Vikings will be looking to maintain their standing as the No. 2 seed in the NFC.
See how I have this one playing out in my New York vs Minnesota best bets and predictions.

Jets vs Vikings Prediction
Vikings 30, Jets 28
Vikings fans seem concerned about their team’s ability to prevent Mike White from having another efficient outing, and I have to agree with them. Minnesota’s defense ranks 31st in passing yards gained per attempt, and White made things look easy in last week’s rainy outing against Chicago.
In his first start since Zach Wilson was benched, White completed 22 passes for 315 yards and three touchdowns, showcasing a rapport with receivers that was otherwise missing all season.
With that said, there’s still plenty of reason to believe that the Vikings will win this one. Save for two single-digit outings, Minnesota has scored 20+ points in every game this season, and they’ve been lights out at home.
I don’t doubt that New York will keep it close, but ultimately, I’ve got the Vikings taking this one in what could be a big day for their secondary receiving options.

Over 45.5 Points (-110) at Caesars
WAGER: 1 Unit
This game has sneaky shootout potential. Minnesota’s passing defense is highly susceptible to what White brings to the table, and the Jets will have to pick their poison on defense between Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen, Dalvin Cook, and T.J. Hockenson.
