Minnesota Vikings 2023 Season Betting Analysis | MyBookie NFL Betting Preview
Minnesota Vikings | 63rd season as a member of the National Football League
Owner: Zygi Wilf
Head coach: Kevin O’Connell
Home field: U.S. Bank Stadium | Minneapolis, Minnesota
What is Minnesota’s Straight Up Prediction this Season?
The offense last season should rock. In fact, with the addition of Jordan Addison, it will be downright scary good.
Justin Jefferson is one of the league’s top wide receivers. Addison played for USC last season. Jordan is also the 2019 Belitnikoff Award winner for college football’s top receiver in 2021 while playing with Kenny Pickett at Pittsburgh. He’s got moves that will make a cornerback’s head spin.
Dalvin Cook is one of the league’s top running backs. Kirk Cousins is good enough to run the offense and the line is solid. So there won’t be any issues with the offense. The Vikings, though, should struggle on defense.
Minnesota signed former New Orleans Saints defensive end Marcus Davenport. The former first round pick is a good player when he’s healthy. But Davenport has never played an entire season without suffering an injury that leads to him sitting on the bench for multiple games.
More concerning than Davenport’s propensity to get injured is how well the cornerbacks will play. Left corner Andrew Booth Jr. had 12 solo tackles last season. The 2022 second round pick is unproven.
Right corner Byron Murphy Jr. had 29 solo tackles and 4 pass defenses for the Arizona Cardinals in 2022. Murphy Jr. only played in 9 games.
The safeties will be solid but the corner position is a huge question mark and the schedule is brutal. Cincinnati, Kansas City, Denver, and the Eagles are on the schedule.
So is Detroit twice, Green Bay twice, and the Bears twice. The tough schedule, and the questions on defense, should lead to the Minnesota Vikings to finish the regular season 8-9.
What will Minnesota’s Against the Spread Record be this Season?
Although the Vikings went 12-4 straight up last season, Minnesota finished with a 7-9-1 against the spread record.
Oddsmakers understand that the Vikings’ defense has questions. Oddsmakers also know about the Vikings’ tough schedule.
Minnesota could struggle keeping teams from moving the football both on the ground and in the air. We have to assume a similar ATS record, 8-9 or 9-8, happens this season.
What will be the Over Under Total Record for Minnesota Vikings’ Games in 2023?
In 2022, oddsmakers had no idea what over under total lines to set on Minnesota Vikings’ games. The over dominated the under 11-6.
The total record should be different in 2023. Oddsmakers got a chance to see Kevin O’Connell’s strategies. So did defensive coordinators, which means oddsmakers and D-coordinators will adjust.
We should expect a much more even total record. At the end of the regular season, Minnesota games will have gone 9 over and 8 under.
