Odds, Schedule And Predictions

1

Not 24 hours after the Minnesota Vikings finished their 2021-22 season, coach Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman were fired. Will Kirk Cousins return as the starting quarterback? With plenty of young star power, it’s clear Minnesota needs to make a move this offseason and their personnel decisions will be one to watch closely. It seemed like the path to the NFC North was going to open up for the Vikings with the rumors that Aaron Rodgers was done in Green Bay, but now it appears he’s there to stay. The Vikings may be one of the more aggressive teams this offseason.

Below, you can find Minnesota Vikings odds for 2022. Included is a weekly outlook, odds for every game this season, futures, and more.

Vikings 2021 recap

Record: 8-9, Second in the NFC North

Record ATS: 9-8

Over/under record: 11-6

The Vikings learned two things on 2021: Justin Jefferson is a certifiable superstar and Mike Zimmer is not their guy. The Vikings were well in playoff contention during the last couple weeks of the season, but ultimately came up short. With their roster, it felt like a disappointment and Zimmer took the fall for it. A 4-2 mark in the NFC North wasn’t enough to change the mind of ownership. Kirk Cousins sat near the top of many stat boards this season, but whether or not Minnesota will retain him is up in the air.

Minnesota Vikings futures odds

Futures are long-term bets that can range from an offseason to a full season (or beyond). Team win totals, award winners, and player performance are common futures.

Vikings Super Bowl odds

The Minnesota Vikings have been eliminated from playoff contention.

Vikings prop bets

Prop bets are based on individual performance, typically surrounding players. Dalvin Cook was one of the best running backs in the NFL in 2020, making him a bettor’s favorite with prop bets. For example, Cook’s projected rushing total in the Vikings’ Week 11 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys was 96.5 yards. Those who thought he would rush for 97 or more yards would be the over while those who thought he would rush for 96 or fewer yards would take the under. Cook picked up 115 yards that game, giving those who bet over his rushing total the win.

How to bet on the Minnesota Vikings

Moneyline

The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:

  • Vikings -125
  • Eagles +180

The Vikings are considered favorites in this matchup (indicated by -125), requiring a $125 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). The Eagles are the underdog in this matchup, paying out $280 total for a $100 bet ($180 in winnings). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.

Point spread

Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:

  • Vikings -1.5 (-110)
  • Cardinals +1.5 (-110)

In this example, Minnesota is favored by 1.5 points, indicated by “-1.5.” If the Vikings win the game 31-28, the Vikings (-1.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Cardinals keep the game within two or win outright– say they win 37-34– the Cardinals (+1.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.

Point total (over/under)

The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, the Vikings’ Week 5 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks had a projected point total of 54.5 points. Minnesota lost the game 27-26, resulting in 53 total points. Those that bet under the point total would have cashed out that week.

Minnesota’s defense was a liability for most of the season, showing that they were susceptible to being lit up from Week 1. However, outside of a couple games, the Vikings were also capable of piling up points thanks to a trio of weapons in Dalvin Cook, Justin Jefferson, and Adam Theilen. The combination of a lethal offense and vulnerable defense led to Minnesota often seeing higher than league average point totals, often between 48 and 54 points.

In-play and live betting

Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Vikings (-130) were favored against the Broncos (+175) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Vikings to win would win $7.69.

However, say the Vikings fell to a big 24-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to costly turnovers or special teams gaffes). Odds may swing in favor of the Broncos, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Vikings to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take Minnesota (+130) at halftime and the Vikings pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $7.69 (plus the initial $10 bet).

This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Broncos (+175) in that game, but Minnesota jumps out to a 14-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on Minnesota (-210) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.

Parlays and teasers

You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.
