Welcome to Vegas Sports Betting Minnesota Vikings season preview where we will discuss the odds of them winning the Super bowl offered by the best online sportsbooks.
According to the odds tables offered by our sportsbook affiliates, the Minnesota Vikings are considered the worse team in the NFC conference. During the off-season, the team lost several players from their roster which may affect the team negatively; for that reason Vegas sports betting considers them one of the worst team in the NFC. Offensively, the team suffered a big blow losing tight end John Carlson and back-up running back Toby Gerhart. Then again, their depth chart presents a solid lineup of players that are that can definitely score point and be a big threat to defenses; this involves RB Adrien Peterson, TE Kyle Rudolph, leading receiver Greg Jennings, Cordarelle Patterson as second and Jerome Simpson as third…pretty solid we would think! Though, the offensive area that the Vikings were struggling with last season was at the quarterback position ; Nor Christian Ponder or Matt Cassel were able to accomplish the necessary tasks for the team; they even brought in QB Josh Freeman but he had a horrible performance in his debut. So this year, the team drafted QB Teddy Bridgewater from Louisville to take on that role; Head Coach Mike Zimmer has much work to do with his young rookie quarterback before he could even start. As for their defense, well this was the area where the Vikings were struggling the most; last season, the team was practically dead last in yard allowed per game, right on top of Dallas. For that reason, the Vikings decided to switch the defense around by letting go of DE Jared Allen, DT Kevin Williams and CB Chris Cook; however signed DT Linval Joseph from the New York Giants, CB Captain Munnerlyn from the Carolina Panthers and DE Corey Wootton from the Chicago Bears. It will be exciting to see how the defense will adjust with this turnaround of players. We at Vegas sports betting believe that there is a small hope this team could take a wild card spot. It all depends on the QB play and to what level new Coach Mike Zimmer could bring the defence to. The best odd offered by Bovada sportsbook that you should consider is having them make the playoffs.
