Minnesota Vikings betting odds and NFL lines

 It is still unclear if the Minnesota Vikings will break the mediocre spell this NFL season.

Minnesota Vikings betting odds and NFL lines Mediocre is the word best describing the football exhibited by the Minnesota Vikings in the past few seasons. During the last five NFL season the Vikings have always finished with between six and nine wins - never more, never less. Head coach Brad Childress is an offensive expert, but the quarterback situation of the team remains shaky, with QB Brad Johnson gone to the Cowboys. RB draft pick Adrian Peterson will likely carry most the load in 2007.

 The defense is in good position, finishing first overall in rush defense last season. But it is highly unlikely that the run defense would be able to compensate for all the weaknesses the Minnesota Vikings have exhibited through the last NFL season. And with defensive coordinator Mike Tomlin hired away from Pittsburgh, the biggest strength from last year may be gone away.

 In the Preseason, Minnesota took advantage of four New York turnovers in the second week of preseason action, returning two for touchdowns as the Vikings hammered the Jets 37-20 at Giants Stadium. Drew Henson was 4-for-9 for 33 yards, and Adrian Peterson had eight carries for 70 yards and a major for the Vikings.

 But event the betting odds on the Minnesota Vikings are mediocre, at best. The win against the Jets did little to improve the opinion of the oddsmakers towards the Vikings and the online betting website Bodog Sports (new window) has posted the following betting odds on the Minnesota Vikings for the 2007 NFL season:

Minnesota Vikings odds to win the NFC: 20/1

Minnesota Vikings odds to win the NFC North: 5/1

Odds on the Vikings to win the 2008 Super Bowl: 50/1

How many NFL regular season wins betting lines on the Vikings: over 61/2 wins (-115); under 61/2 (-115)
