Minnesota Vikings Betting

Defense and special teams led the way in the Minnesota Vikings’ 28-12 win over the Atlanta Falcons in their season opener. Minnesota scored all its points off Atlanta miscues, racing out to a 28-0 lead after three quarters before relenting in the final frame. It was what Minnesota was looking for after a frustrating 2018 campaign that saw the defense take a step back, and the Vikings will look to carry that into their tilt with the Green Bay Packers on Sunday afternoon. Both teams are tied atop the NFC North at 1-0.

Minnesota Vikings Week 2 Preview

These teams met at Lambeau Field in Week 2 of the 2018 campaign, and both sides ended up disappointed. Green Bay took a 20-7 lead into the fourth quarter before Minnesota came storming back with Kirk Cousins throwing three touchdown passes to tie the game at 29 all headed into overtime. The Vikings had all the momentum against a deflated Packers’ team from there, but they were unable to put the final nail in the coffin as Daniel Carlson missed two field goals in overtime. That led to the game ending in a 29-29 tie, and Minnesota failed to cover as a short favorite per the NFL betting odds.

Carlson was cut after the game, and Minnesota’s search for a kicker has continued into this season. Dan Bailey finished the year as the Vikings kicker, but he was not sharp last season and his training camp struggles led to Minnesota dealing a draft pick to Baltimore for Norwegian Kaare Vedvik. Vedvik was even worse though, and the Vikings cut him and kept Bailey heading into this season. Bailey did not attempt a field goal in the opener, but he hit all four of his extra points. He’ll be under the microscope in Minnesota’s return to Lambeau.

Minnesota’s offensive line was a problem throughout the 2018 season, but the big boys up front played well in the season opener. Dalvin Cook and Alex Mattison combined to run the ball for 5.2 yards per carry against the Falcons, and that will give them confidence heading into this game. The Vikings did not run the ball effectively in either of their meetings with the Packers last season, and they want to fare better this time around. Green Bay’s defense looked much better against Chicago than it did last season though, so that battle in the trenches is worth watching.

On the other side of the ball, Minnesota will look to pressure Aaron Rodgers effectively, just like its front did in 2018. The Vikings defensive line was able to sack Rodgers four times in each game, with Danielle Hunter getting to Green Bay’s signal caller three times total. The front seven had a strong outing against Atlanta with Hunter, Linval Joseph, Everson Griffen, and Anthony Barr all recording sacks.

Minnesota Vikings Week 1 Recap

Kirk Cousins had an incredibly easy afternoon in Week 1. Cousins only had to throw the ball 10 times because of how quickly Minnesota forced Atlanta to turn the ball over, ending the day with the fewest passing attempts of any quarterback that started on Sunday. He connected with Adam Thielen for a touchdown and scampered for another, and if he can get that much help in every game, he’d take it.

Cook was the workhorse running back Minnesota had hoped to see this offseason. He tallied 111 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries, showcasing his rare blend of vision and speed with some fantastic runs against Atlanta’s front. Advanced metrics indicated that Cook ran behind the worst offensive line in the league last season, so the team loved to see him thrive behind a revamped unit.

With respect to the offense, the defense was the hero of the day. Minnesota set up its offense at Atlanta’s 21 and Atlanta’s 41 on its first two drives, allowing the Vikings to quickly go up 14-0. The secondary was great in slowing down Atlanta’s vaunted passing attack, with Xavier Rhodes and Harrison Smith playing very well.

Once the Vikings got their footing, they had as dominant a stretch as any team has ever had. Born in 1961, the Vikes had humble beginnings. They won just five games total over their first two seasons but saw gradual improvements that resulted in their first winning season in 1964. Bud Grant was named head coach ahead of the 1967 season and the following year the Vikes reached the postseason for the first time.

In 1969 the Vikings defeated Cleveland for their first and only NFL Championship, earning a spot alongside the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl IV. Entering as a 12-point favorite against the AFL champs, the Vikings were subdued 23-7. The loss didn’t deter the Vikings. They endured just one losing season during 1970s and reached the Super Bowl on three other occasions. However, they couldn’t get over the hump, losing all three games.

With Randall Cunningham throwing darts to Randy Moss, the Vikings led the NFL in scoring and posted the most victories in club history by going 15-1 during the 1998 campaign. As a heavy favorite to reach their first Super Bowl since the 1976 season, the Vikes were upset at home by Atlanta. They reached the NFC Championship Game three other times since then, including in 2017, but they have yet to get back to the Super Bowl, where they own the most appearances without a win.

The Vikings have been a consistent threat in the NFC over the last four years. They haven’t had a losing season, twice reached double figures in victories and claimed a pair of NFC North titles. The pressure is on Cousins to get them to their first Super Bowl since 1976 and that could be tough since he’s never won a playoff game in his career.
