The Minnesota Vikings are looking to make an extended postseason run in 2016 after recording an impressive 11 wins in 2015 and winning the NFC North division title.The Vikes have a future Hall of Fame running back, a still blossoming quarterback and a lockdown defense. Now, let’s find out how far that will carry Minny this coming season as well as their current betting odds.

Minnesota Vikings Season Winning Favorites, Division & Conference Odds


2016 Regular Season Win Total Odds

Over/Under 9.5 Wins Analysis: The only sure-fire road losses I see coming are against Carolina and Green Bay and possible one rod loss against either Detroit or Chicago simply because they’re division rivals. I think Minnesota Vikings also loses two games at home against Houston and Arizona, giving them just four regular season losses or five at most. The Vikes easily reach the 10-win plateau to top their O/U total.

NFC North Division Odds

+180Analysis: The Green Bay Packers are favored to win the NFC North after finishing one game behind Minnesota last season, but I like the Vikings to win consecutive NFC North titles, mostly because they’ve got the far better defense of the two. At a value-packed +180, the Vikings are the pick to bag the NFC North title in 2016.

NFC Championship Odds

+800Analysis: I like Minnesota a lot, but I can’t pick them to win the NFC title over Seattle, Carolina or Arizona. Still, at a value-packed +800, Minnesota is worth a wager. They’re legitimate because of their defense. If Teddy Bridgewater and the passing attack improve in 2016, then the sky’s the limit!

Super Bowl 51 Odds

+1800Analysis: At +1800, Minnesota is offering one helluva’ return should they manage to win it all. They’re a bit of a long shot to win it all, but it’s not completely unrealistic to see the Vikes win it all.
