Minnesota Vikings Odds, Bet Types, and Team History

The Minnesota Vikings went 7-9 in 2020, finishing third in the NFC North and missing the playoffs with their worst finish in six seasons. Minnesota took a step back after reaching the postseason in 2019, though this aligns with the team’s history under head coach Mike Zimmer as he’s yet to lead the Vikings to consecutive playoff appearances in his tenure.

This season could be a make or break year for QB Kirk Cousins . He threw for 4,265 yards and 35 touchdowns in 2020 but is just 25-21-1 as the Vikings starter. There’s no QB competition in Minnesota, but drafting Kellen Mond in the third round might put the pressure on Cousins.

Regardless of who is under center, the Vikings have the pieces to once again be one of the league’s top offenses. Running back Dalvin Cook had a career year with 1,557 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns, averaging five yards per carry. Minnesota also has two No. 1 options at receiver. Adam Thielen caught 74 passes for 925 yards and 14 touchdowns while Justin Jefferson racked up 1,400 yards and seven touchdowns on 88 catches as a rookie.

The defense was the problem, finishing 29th in points per game allowed. That unit should improve with linebacker Anthony Barr returning after playing just two games in 2020. Minnesota also added experience to the secondary and defensive line with Patrick Peterson, Bashaud Breeland and Sheldon Richardson.

The Vikings open the 2021 NFL season at the Cincinnati Bengals.

Vikings Offseason Movement 2021

Trades: Mason Cole (C, from Cardinals)

Draft picks: Christian Darrisaw (OT, Virginia Tech), Kellen Mond (QB, Texas A&M), Chazz Surratt (LB, North Carolina), Wyatt Davis (G, Ohio State)

Re-signings: Anthony Barr (LB, one year), Dakota Dozier (G, one year)

Free-agent signings: Dalvin Tomlinson (DL, two years), Patrick Peterson (CB, one year), Stephen Weatherly (EDGE, two years), Nick Vigil (LB, one year), Sheldon Richardson (DL, one year), Xavier Woods (S, one year)

Free-agent losses: Riley Reiff (T, to Bengals), Anthony Harris (S, to Eagles), Shamar Stephen (DL, to Bengals), Eric Wilson (LB, to Eagles), Ifeadi Odenigbo (EDGE, to Giants)

Vikings Team Rivals

Minnesota last won the NFC North in 2017. The Vikings went 7-9 in 2020 to finish third in their division. Minnesota may have been able to contend for a playoff spot had it been more consistent last season. The team started 1-5 before rallying to get back to 6-6 only to then lose three of its final four games.

The Green Bay Packers won the NFC North at 13-3, capturing the division for the second consecutive year. The Chicago Bears finished second at 8-8 and clinched a wild card berth while the Detroit Lions finished in last for the third straight year, going 5-11.

Betting on the Minnesota Vikings

Minnesota Vikings Point Spreads

Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Vikings went 7-9 overall, but fared worse against the spread at 6-10. Minnesota’s seven wins came at a margin of 5.7 points while its nine losses were by an average of 9.4 points. Here’s an example:

  • Lions +2.5 (+110)
  • Vikings -2.5 (-110)

In this situation, the Lions are 2.5 point underdogs against the Vikings. If Minnesota wins the game by three or more points, a $100 wager on the Vikings would come with a payout of $90.91. If Detroit won the game outright or lost by two points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.

FAQ: Everything you need to know about point spreads

Minnesota Vikings Over/Unders

Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:

Let's say the Packers play the Vikings and the over/under is set at 47 points. A wager on the over would require Green Bay and Minnesota to score 48 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 46 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 47 points scored.

In 2020, Minnesota averaged 26.9 points per game (11th in NFL) and allowed 29.7 points (29th in NFL). The Vikings had one of the league’s best records last year when it came to exceeding point totals, going 11-5 against the over.

FAQ: Betting the point total, explained | What is a push?

Minnesota Vikings Moneylines

Moneylines are a betting term that can sound like jargon, but they're really one of the most simple wagers in all of betting. They're simply bets on which team will win the game. The margin of victory is irrelevant with moneyline bets: A bet on the Vikings moneyline would pay out cash regardless of a last second win or a 40-point blowout.

The odds can be weird at first, though. Think of them in terms of $10 increments: If the Vikings moneyline was set at -150 -- indicating they were the favorites (see the minus sign) -- then you'd have to pay $15 for every $10 you want to win. It's the opposite for underdogs: A Vikings moneyline of +160 would pay out a profit of $16 for every $10 wagered.

Minnesota Vikings Props

Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out a hypothetical example below:

  • Kirk Cousins 2021 passing yards: 4,450.5

FAQ: How prop betting works

Vikings Futures

Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end of season success. Examples of futures are:

  • Minnesota Vikings odds to win the NFC North
  • Minnesota Vikings odds to win the NFC
  • Minnesota Vikings odds to win the Super Bowl
  • Dalvin Cook’s odds to win Offensive Player of the Year

If you’re confident that the Vikings will win the NFC North or have a deep playoff run in them, this is the place to be. For a full list of NFL futures, click or tap here.
