Bet Jamaica Daily Sports Roundup: October 5

by Dirty on October 5, 2009

Today in the Daily Sports Roundup: The Packers head to Minnesota to take on the Vikings and their old quarterback, and the Rangers get set to battle the Devils.

Colliding on the gridiron . . .

It’ll be Brett Favre vs. the Packers on Monday Night Football as the Vikings play host to their division rivals in the primetime matchup. Undefeated Minnesota (3-0 straight-up, 2-1 against-the-spread) is coming off a 27-24 win over the Niners last weekend. Favre went 24-of-46 for 301 yards passing in that contest with two touchdowns, including a game-winning strike to Greg Lewis with two seconds left on the clock. Adrian Peterson ran for 85 yards on 19 carries in the Week 3 victory.

Green Bay, meanwhile, improved to 2-1 SU (2-1 ATS) on the season with a 36-17 win in St. Louis in Week 3. Aaron Rodgers was good on 13-of-23 pass attempts for 269 yards in that victory, with two touchdowns. Ryan Grant rushed for 99 yards on 26 carries in that game. The oddsmakers, though, have the Packers pegged as 4-point road underdogs for Monday night, with the total for the game at 45.5. Green Bay and Minnesota are both 2-1 on the OVER/UNDER.

Taking a trip around the rink . . .

As well, there are a couple of games on the National Hockey League’s schedule for Monday night, with Columbus at Vancouver, and the Rangers at New Jersey. The Devils will be looking to bounce back from a 5-2 home loss to the Flyers on Saturday night. Martin Brodeur stopped just 22 of 27 Philly shots in that contest, while Brian Rolston and Jamie Langenbrunner had the Devils’ goals. New York beat Ottawa 5-2 on Saturday, with Brandon Dubinsky scoring twice in that victory.
