Minnesota Vikings NFL Betting

Last year, as in most years, the Minnesota Vikings were a hot futures pick. With a battleship full of draft choices in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Vikings were a hot property. But the Vikings may have been too clever by half. Minnesota completely revamped their defense for 2020, and it took too long for the new players to get up to speed. The Vikings flopped out of the gate with a 1-5 start and never dug out. Minnesota finished 7-9 straight up and 6-10 against the spread. Most irritating to fans is that Minnesota was in playoff position at 6-6 but then wilted with a 1-3 stretch to end the campaign. Gamblers were aggravated by seven consecutive failures on the board to close out 2020. But these same bettors are coming back for more. Minnesota is the second choice to the Packers to win the NFC Central.

Head coach Mike Zimmer returns for his eighth season at the helm of the Vikings. He has a career record of 64-47-1 with three playoff appearances. Zimmer led the Vikings to the 2017 NFC championship game with quarterback Case Keenum, but they were annihilated at Philadelphia. Minnesota believed that quarterback Kirk Cousins was the final piece of the Super Bowl puzzle. However, Cousins has never matched Keenum’s peak of coming within one game of the Super Bowl. Zimmer has a defensive background, which made last year’s rankings of 27th for overall defense and 29th for points allowed quite disappointing.

Kirk Cousins has been something of a tease to fans and gamblers at Minnesota. Last year his quarterback rating was a solid 105.0 with a 35/13 TD/INT ratio. Yet Cousins never quite gets the Vikings to their ultimate destination. He is known for imploding when it matters most.

Running back Dalvin Cook rank for 1557 yards and 16 touchdowns last year. It was the second consecutive 1000-yard season for Cook. He also caught 44 passes. Wide receiver Justin Jefferson enjoyed a stellar rookie season with 88 catches, 1400 yards, and seven touchdowns.

Minnesota had a good but not great 2021 NFL Draft. Nobody stood out, but team needs were addressed. Virginia Tech offensive tackle Christian Darrisaw was their first round pick.

The Vikings have never won the Super Bowl despite 30 playoff appearances since 1968. From 1969 through 1976, head coach Bud Grant led the team to its only four Super Bowl appearances.  Minnesota went down to the Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Oakland Raiders. Legends such as Fran Tarkenton, Chuck Foreman, Alan Page, Carl Eller, and Paul Krause all wore the purple and gold with pride and excellence.
