2018 NFL Season: Minnesota Vikings Betting Recap

Photo of the pickswise logo

After reaching the NFC Championship game last season the expectations were high coming into this season for the Minnesota Vikings. They failed to reach expectations and a loss in their last game of the season against the Chicago Bears forced them to miss the playoffs. But the real questions for bettors was if they put money in their pocket or if they lost money. Let’s breakdown how the Minnesota Vikings Betting Recap for the season.

Minnesota Vikings Against The Spread

If you bet on every game for the Minnesota Vikings this season they might have made you a little bit of money, but depending on odds chances are you broke even, or maybe even lost a little bit of cash. On the season they were 8-7-1 against the spread. At U.S. Bank Stadium they were 4-3-1 against the spread and on the road they were 4-4 against the spread. On grass this season the Vikings were 2-2 against the spread and on turf they were 6-5-1.

Minnesota Vikings Over Under

This was a year that the under was the play for the Vikings and if you bet the under on this team every game, they made you some good money. The over was the play in six games for the Vikings and the under was the play in ten of the games. At home the over was the play in two games and the under was the play in six games.

That really isn’t shocking because the Vikings defense was a lot stronger at home this year, which helped keep a lot of the games under the total. On the road the under was the play in four of the games and the over was the play in four games. On grass the over was actually the play in three of the four games but on turf the under was the play in three of the 11 games. The average final total of Vikings games this season was the two teams combining for 43.8 points.

Next Years odds

Most people believe the Vikings will make it back into the playoffs next year and they currently sit with 20-1 odds to win the Super Bowl. Other teams with 20-1 odds are the Chargers, Packers, Eagles, and Steelers.

In terms of winning the NFC, the Vikings currently have 8-1 odds which is tied for third best in the NFC with the Chicago Bears. The two teams that sit in front of the Vikings are the Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints.

Next Years Outlook

The outlook for the Vikings is good heading into next season and if they can clean up a couple of areas it should be a successful year. The offensive line really struggled to keep Kirk Cousins upright and that can’t continue to happen if they want to make another Super Bowl run.

There are also some questions about what they will do some of the key pieces on defense like Anthony Barr and if he leaves who they will sign to try and fill his shoes. How the team answers these questions will decide what type of year they have next year.
