2018 Minnesota Vikings NFL Betting Odds and Schedule
The Vikings are, according to sites for betting in the NFL, poised to match and surpass their deep 2017 run. The Vikes have their work cut out for them. First, they posted their best regular season record since 1998. Second, they secured a first-round bye for the first time since 2009. Third, Minnesota became the eighth Super Bowl-hosting city in the Super Bowl era to qualify for the playoffs. Fourth, they pulled off the so-called ‘Minneapolis Miracle.’ Against, ironically, the New Orleans Saints. Finally, they reached the NFC Championship game for the first time since 2009. Though they lost that to the Eagles, it was still a season of which to be proud.
However, the Vikes’ bid to outdo themselves will have to be done with an almost wholly new quarterback room. Success story Case Keenum signed with the Denver Broncos. Sam Bradford is gone to the Arizona Cardinals. And Teddy Bridgewater is Water under the Bridge.

The Vikings’ starting QB will be, barring any unforeseen event, Kirk ‘Kissin’’ Cousins. The Michigan State product showed great potential in six years with the Washington Redskins. The last three of which he passed for more than 4,000 yards. However, he never broke the glass ceiling. Or maybe he just was a big fish in a small pond. Certainly, sites for betting in the NFL trust this will turn out to be a symbiotic relationship. As reflected by the odds given the Vikes. Cousins’s new targets will include Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen. As well as Kendall Wright, signed from the Chicago Bears. And Tavarres King, signed from the New York Giants.
