Minnesota Viking Odds

Written by

A new era is beginning in Minnesota as training camp continues. Kevin O’Connell, fresh off a Super Bowl win as the offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams, was hired as head coach over the offseason. He’ll get his first chance to lead the way on the sidelines when the Vikings head to Las Vegas to face the Raiders in preseason action on Aug. 14.

According to the latest futures odds, the team has a shot at getting back to the postseason, but actually competing for a Super Bowl title is likely out of reach for now. Minnesota kicks off the season at home in Week 1 against the division-rival Green Bay Packers. Here’s a closer look at the latest Vikings betting odds and angles.

Minnesota Vikings odds: Spread, moneyline and over/under

NFL Preseason Week 1: Vikings road dogs at Vegas in preseason opener

The Vikings play their first preseason game on the road against the Raiders on Sunday, Aug. 14. Kickoff is set for 4:25 p.m. ET with NFL Network handling broadcast duties.

Preseason games can be tough to project, but O’Connell and company could look to hit the ground running in his head coaching debut. The Raiders are favored and opened up their preseason with a victory over the Jaguars in the Hall of Fame Game.

  • Moneyline: Minnesota opened as a +120 road underdog, but the odds have since moved to Vikings +145 and Raiders -170.
  • Spread: Oddsmakers have set the line at Raiders -3.5 with the odds at -110 on both sides.
  • Over/Under: Sportsbooks have their expectations in check on scoring as the current total is at 34 points.

Week 1 odds: Vikings open 2022 season as slight home dogs vs. rival Packers

The Packers were NFC North champs last season with a record of 13-4, but the team had a quick exit from the playoffs at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers. The Vikings were inconsistent all year and wrapped up at 8-9, which ultimately inspired some changes.

For the season at hand, Green Bay is once again the favorite to win the division, while Minnesota is second on the board in the latest futures odds.

  • Moneyline: Minnesota opened at +100 in Week 1 NFL odds but the number has since shifted to +110 with the Packers at -130. The NFC North rivals split two games last year. In Week 11, Minnesota won a 34-31 thriller at home. The Packers returned the favor in Week 17 with a convincing 37-10 home victory.
  • Spread: The Vikings opened as 1.5-point home underdogs for the Week 1 opener. The spread has since changed to Packers -2 with equal odds of -110 on both sides. Minnesota was 9-8 against the spread last year while Green Bay was 12-6.
  • Over/Under: The two clubs lit up the scoreboard in last year’s Week 11 meeting with 65 total points. For the second matchup, total scoring dropped to 47 points. Oddsmakers are expecting another relatively high-scoring game, with the opening line at 48 points.

Minnesota Vikings odds to win the Super Bowl

Last Updated: August 11

DraftKings released 2023 Super Bowl odds last January. At the initial release, the Vikings were at +5000. The number has since dipped to +3500, which leaves Minnesota at the 15th spot on the board.

In terms of NFC contenders, the team is seventh, so we can translate that to mean that Minnesota projects to at least be in the playoff chase this season. The Bills (+600) and Buccaneers (+700) are the current consensus favorites for Super Bowl 57.

Here’s what the team’s odds for winning the next Super Bowl look like at other top betting sites:

Minnesota Vikings futures odds for 2022-23

The Super Bowl is the star attraction for NFL futures betting, but there are several other ways to get in on the action. You can wager on how many games the Vikings will win, how key players will perform, and much more. Let’s take a look.

Regular season win total

DraftKings Sportsbook: Over 9 (-115)Under 9 (-105)

Last season, the Vikings finished at 8-9. DraftKings has set a benchmark of nine wins, so the oddsmakers are clearly seeing a chance for some improvement. Based on the latest odds, betting action has been leaning slightly toward the over.

Odds to win the NFC North

BetMGM Sportsbook: +260

The Packers have won the NFC North three seasons in a row, and at -165, they are favored to win once again. Minnesota, meanwhile, has a clear path to second place, and BetMGM expects the Lions (+850) and Bears (+1000) to bring up the rear.

Odds to win the NFC

Caesars Sportsbook: +2000

There are seven other squads in front of the Vikings, who are tied with the New Orleans Saints at +2000 in NFC odds at Caesars. The Buccaneers (+340), Rams (+450) and Packers (+450) are the current favorites to represent the conference in the big game.

Kirk Cousins NFL MVP odds

FanDuel Sportsbook: +4000

Cousins is tied for 15th on the NFL MVP odds board at FanDuel. While it’s possible that the Vikings’ offense could open up even further under a new head coach, players will be getting used to a new system. Josh Allen is the current top choice at DanDuel with odds of +700.

Season-long player prop odds

DraftKings Sportsbook:

  • Most passing yards: Kirk Cousins +1800
  • Most rushing yards: Dalvin Cook +1000
  • Most receiving yards: Justin Jefferson +800

Cook and Jefferson are among the top choices in their respective categories, while Cousins is tied for 10th in passing yard odds. Said another way, the Minnesota offense has the potential to produce some yardage leaders.

Lastest news and updates

The Vikings hired Kevin O’Connell, former offensive coordinator of the Super Bowl champion Rams, as head coach in February. During free agency, key signings included Za’Darius Smith and Harrison Phillips as the club worked on bolstering the defense. Among those moving on from Minnesota are Tyler Conklin and Xavier Woods.

At the NFL draft, the Vikings actually traded down to the last spot in round one, selecting S Lewis Cine. The team nabbed CB Andrew Booth and OG Ed Ingram in round two. Improving the defense was a clear area of focus over the offseason, and the talent level on offense remains high. We’ll see how that all translates with a new offensive-minded head coach.
