Minnesota Vikings Player Stats
The 2020 season was a tough one for Minnesota Vikings fans, as the team had its worst performance in a half-decade, finishing 7-9 and failing to make the playoffs. The offense had impressive moments, but the defense really struggled all year long, giving up the fourth-most points in the league.
Oddsmakers are expecting a bit of a bounce-back season for quarterback Kirk Cousins and crew, and they could be in the mix for a playoff berth. See all of the Vikings above, as well as their full schedule, against-the-spread (ATS) performance, key injuries, team trends, depth charts, and more.
Minnesota Vikings Point Spreads
The Vikings really underperformed expectations last season, going just 6-10 against-the-spread (ATS). A lot of the struggles came at home at U.S. Bank Stadium, where the team went just 2-6 ATS -- tied for the worst mark in the league in that spot with the .
If you're a beginner bettor, spread betting will likely be the bet type you'll see the most in sports coverage and at sportsbooks. These are wagers on the margin of victory in a game.
Here’s a brief example of a spread for a Vikings game:
- Vikings -2.5 (-110)
- Bears +2.5 (-110)
The Vikings in this situation is listed as -2.5, which can be read as them being favored to win by 2.5 points. Of course, a team can't win by a half point, and that number is just so sportsbooks don't -- or have the game fall on exactly that number and have to pay out refunds to bettors.
Minnesota Vikings Over/Unders
Because the Vikings had such a solid offense but putrid defense, it's no surprise that in 2020 overs in their games hit a high rate. They were the third-best over team in the league behind the Titans and Raiders to the over.
, if you're unfamiliar, are popular bets at U.S. sportsbooks that are based around the combined point total in a game. It's not important which team wins or the margin of victory in the game -- it's all about points on the scoreboard.
Let's say the Vikings vs. game has a total of 49.5 points. That's the number set by oddsmakers at sportsbooks, and bets revolve around that number. As a bettor, you have a decision to make: whether to bet the over or under. If you decided on the over, you'd win if Minnesota and Green Bay combined for 50 or more points. An under bet, though, would hit if the teams scored just 49 or fewer points.
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 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
Adam Thielen and Dalvin Cook are always incredibly popular draft picks in fantasy football leagues given their statistical output on the field. If that's your thing, take a look at player props, which are bet types completely about a single player and how they perform.
Some examples of Vikings props you'll find on an NFL Sunday include Thielen to catch over/under a set amount of passes, Cook to score a touchdown, Kirk Cousins to throw over/under a certain amount of yards, and more.
With things in Green Bay a bit uncertain, the NFC North might be wide open this year. And you can bet on which team, including the Vikings, will win it and get into the playoffs. That type of bet is called a futures bet, and it refers to any wager settled at the end of the year.
