Giants vs. Vikings 12/24/22 Preview Games and History
These two teams have been battling it out against one another for almost 60 years, with the sides first clashing heads back in 1964 when the Vikings beat the Giants 30-21.
The Giants had very little luck in the early days of this fixture, winning only one match out of the first 7, with that game being a taut 24-23 win that saw the Giants scrape by on the skin of their teeth.
The Giants have yet to fully recover that poor start in the series, though, despite having much stronger spells in the 1980s and 2000s. The Vikings now lead the series 17-12-0 overall and also have higher points scored in total, with 663 to the Giants’ 549.
Now it will be interesting to see whether the Giants can claw back a little more in this Giants vs. Vikings 12/24/22 game.

Then, just three years later, they met in the same fixture, and this time the Vikings didn’t have even a single point to spare as they scraped by 23-22.

Giants vs. Vikings 12/24/22 NFL Betting Tips: The Season So Far
The Giants’ all-round game has been solid this season, but it’s hard to identify many strong points with which they can scare opposing teams. When they do win, it’s hardly resounding, but they haven’t been embarrassed too much, either.
At the beginning of the season, they looked like they might be the league’s mentality monsters team, but there’s not been anything of note on that front recently, either.
The competition in the NFC East has admittedly been stronger than many predicted at the beginning of the season, so in different conditions, we might be singing more praises for the Giants’ performances this season. But it’s hard to pinpoint much top-level talent on this side at all, even if injuries have made things harder than they otherwise would have been.
There have been fewer bigger success stories in the league this season than the Minnesota Vikings. Their 10-3 record is up there with some of the best. However, the more anxious fans point out that many of those victories have had to be fought tooth and nail to the very end.
Minnesota might like their wins to come more comfortably, but a team that can take home wins even win the pressure is ramping up bodes well for good times in the postseason if they make it that far.
Giants vs. Vikings 12/24/22 Prediction
The Vikings have had a much better season, so expect the Minnesota Vikings to win in the Giants vs. Vikings 12/24/22 game. But a runaway win is unlikely, considering how close Minnesota’s games tend to be, whichever way the final score goes.
