Minnesota Vikings NFL Betting Online

Without an upper echelon quarterback and Justin Jefferson sitting out at least one more game before returning to the huddle, the Minnesota Vikings sorely needed to defeat the Bears under the Monday night lights to further solidify its spot in the playoffs before going on bye. Unfortunately, the team tripped and stumbled all over itself en route to dropping a nauseating 12-10 decision to their division rivals that saw them fail to cover the closing 3-point NFL odds. More importantly, it allowed the rest of the NFC dregs to gain ground on them in the NFC playoff standings. JJ will be back in action when the team returns to the gridiron to take on the Las Vegas Raiders in the desert, but will his presence be enough for SKOL to hold onto its playoff spot? Only time will tell…

Minnesota Vikings Week 13 Matchup

The Vikings head into their bye week a .500 team that’s gone 7-4-1 ATS and cashed under tickets at a lucrative 9-3 clip. The showing has been good enough for second place within the NFC North which equates to the No. 7 seed in the NFC. The loss to the Bears now puts them in jeopardy of falling out of the playoff picture with the Rams, Saints, and Packers owners of five wins and being hot on their trail. The remaining schedule reads as such: @Raiders, @Bengals, Lions, Packers, and @Lions. Vegas has been frisky of late, but the Bengals are a completely different animal now that Joe Burrow has been taken out of the equation. The Lions and Packers can both be had at home, and that Week 18 road tilt in Motown might not mean much to the home team once it comes around. With that, Minnesota is still on solid ground to head back to the postseason which is bolstered by the fact that their odds of punching a ticket at the online sportsbook currently clock in at -120. Though the opportunity is there to chase down the Lions for division supremacy only sitting two games back with two remaining against Detroit, the +750 payoff isn’t nearly enticing enough for me to suggest getting involved. No more than a pizza money investment should you feel the need to throw caution to the wind and take a shot!

Minnesota Vikings Week 12 Recap

So it looks like Joshua Dobbs has turned back into a pumpkin for the second time this season. The Vikings sorely needed to come out victorious in the Week 12 betting concluder under the Monday night lights, but his four interceptions prevented the team from doing exactly just that. Minnesota’s replacement for Kirk Cousins ended up playing to a grotesque 54.3 QB rating by way of throwing for 185 yards and a touchdown with those four errant throws proving costly. In all honesty, a hat tip must go in the direction of the Vikings coaching staff for the team to have even held a 10-9 lead late in the game after losing the turnover battle 4-2 and allowing Chicago to rack up 18 first downs in a game it only amassed 317 yards of total offense. The key to the near win was the play of the defense which sacked Justin Fields three times and held his offense to a 0-of-2 showing in its pair of red zone appearances. Still, the effort was ugly all around and Kevin O’Connell already came out and stated that the team would reassess its stance at the quarterback position moving forward with both Jaren Hall and Nick Mullens finally healthy enough to get back under center. It was fun while it lasted with Dobbs under center, but his time there for his new team has likely run its course. The online sportsbook absolutely loved seeing Minnesota never in a position to cover the closing NFL odds with it aligned with 73 percent of the bets and nearly 60 percent of the money. It also banked on yet another prime time under with 61 percent of the handle locked in on the over and the 22 combined points coming nowhere close to the 44-point impost. If you can believe it, games played under the lights this season have gone an insane 29-9 to the under for a 76 percent hit rate!!

The Minnesota Vikings were founded as an NFL expansion franchise in 1961. The Vikings were born as a shot at the American Football League, which intended to place a franchise in the Twin Cities with prospective owner Max Winter. But when Winter was offered an NFL franchise, he left the AFL at the altar.

The Vikings have never won a Super Bowl. However, they had an era of glory from 1968 through 1978 that cemented their bond with the state and its fans. The Vikings made four Super Bowls from 1969 through 1976 but were never able to claim the championship.

Bud Grant coached those great Viking teams and is the most revered name in team history. Grant is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Grant’s first Super Bowl team was led by the swashbuckling quarterback Joe Kapp. And then QB Fran Tarkenton led the Vikings in their other three Super Bowl appearances.

Most of all, the Vikings were known for their tremendous defenses in those days. Paul Krause, Carl Eller, and Alan Page were Hall of Fame legends on that era's Purple People Eaters defenses.

Since that golden age, the Vikings have had several good teams and some close calls. But they have never made it back to Super Sunday. Since 1998 the Vikings have lost four NFC Conference Championship Games.
