Minnesota rallied late to beat Detroit on Sunday, 28-24, but failed to cover the 6.5-point spread. Kirk Cousins connected with K.J. Osborn for the game-winning touchdown with 1:10 remaining. Cousins was 24 of 41 for 260 yards and 2 TD to 0 INT in a bounce-back performance after the Monday-night dud at Philadelphia. Minnesota travels to London to face the Saints in Week 4.

Week 4 Preview: Vikings at Saints Spread, Total and Moneyline

The Minnesota Vikings are favorites facing Jameis Winston’s Saints in the first London game of the season. The Saints were shut out for three quarters at Carolina, ultimately losing 22-14 as 2-point favorites. The over/under for this contest is set at .

It will be interesting to see which direction the market takes this total. My money would be on the OVER 44 with the offensive talent on the field. The Vikings opened as -125 road favorites with the Saints at +105.

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.

Futures

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 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.
