Minnesota Vikings NFL Betting

This was not how the Minnesota Vikings were supposed to begin their 2020 season. The Vikings were coming off a playoff season in which they scored a memorable upset win at the New Orleans Saints in overtime. With a whopping 15 picks in the 2020 NFL Draft they were said to have made a huge haul for their future. Head coach Mike Zimmer got the ultimate vote of confidence with a contract extension. General manager Rick Spielman tried to sound hip and new age as he bragged about the Vikings “roster evolution.” And then Minnesota was annihilated in their first two games. Fans, gamblers, and the football community are now asking if the 2020 season is the Titanic or a big jumbo jet not quite ready for takeoff?

Minnesota Vikings Week 3 Matchup

On Sunday, September 27 the Minnesota Vikings will host the Tennessee Titans at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Kickoff time is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET with television coverage on CBS. The line for this game moved rapidly from a pick to Tennessee -2.5. That is in response to the start of each team but particularly the Vikings and their poor play after two weeks of action.

Tennessee is 2-0 straight up but 0-2 against the spread with a 1-1 mark on totals. The Titans are coming off a 33-30 home win over the Jacksonville Jaguars as 7-point chalks with the game soaring over the total of 44.5. Tennessee was actually outgained by the Jaguars 480 to 354 in total yards but the Titans had a +2-turnover margin. Tennessee quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw for 239 yards and four touchdown passes. Tannehill has a passer rating of 120.7 after two games.

Tennessee has covered the spread in four of their last six games as road favorite. Seven of the Titans last 10 games as road chalk went under the total. As a home dog the Vikings are 14-4 with the odds. Minnesota has gone under the total in six of their last eight when getting points at home.

In this head to head series the Vikings have covered five of their last six against the Titans. Only four of the last 10 games between these teams have gone over the total. At Minnesota the Titans have failed to cover their last three visits.  The last two games between these teams at Minnesota went under the total.

Minnesota Vikings Week 2 Recap

So far, the Minnesota Vikings are 0-2 both straight up and against the spread with a mark of 1-1 on totals. Last week the Vikings were manhandled 28-11 at the Indianapolis Colts as 3.5-point dogs with the game going under the total of 49. Minnesota’s NFL metrics are an utter nightmare. The Vikings rank 30th for total offense and 29th for overall defense.

Minnesota ranks next to last in the NFL for points allowed and 29th for takeaways. The Vikings rank dead last for passing yards and 30th for turnovers. So much for Spielman’s “roster evolution.”

Last week at Indianapolis the Vikings were outgained by a disturbing 354-175 margin in total yards. Indy held a 24-12 domination in first downs. The Vikings could manage only two of nine for third down conversions. The Colts suffocated the game with a 38:25 time of possession. Rookie Jonathan Taylor ran for 101 yards and a touchdown to lead the Colts. Indy wide receiver Moe Alie Cox added five catches for 111 yards.  Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins was 11 of 26 for 113 yards with three interceptions.

Kirk Cousins has been atrocious to start the 2020 season. Cousins quarterback rating is only 61.0. He is averaging 203 yards passing per game and has a two to four touchdown to interception ratio. Wide receiver Adam Thielen has been one of the few assets on offense with nine catches for 141 yards good for 15.7 yards per catch and two touchdowns. Linebacker Eric Kendricks has a whopping 23 tackles with two tackles for loss.
