I'm new to Viasat and need to secure my home network, which is already compromised. Since Viasat doesn't offer any security solutions, I need to find an off-the-shelf VPN provider that will work on the Viasat router. I've heard great things about ExpressVPN but they can't guarantee it will work on Viasat routers.

So you want to run a router based VPN? You might need to go with a third party router which offers more functionality!

Agreed. Found out that I can switch the Viasat to bridge and use a third party/VPN-friendly router as the wifi router.

Correct. Lot of benefits to doing that. Running a VPN through a router is just one of them.
