Vikings Odds 2024 | Best Vikings Spreads, Props, & More

Last Updated: Aug 11, 2023

The Minnesota Vikings went 13-4 and won the NFC North last season, but faltered in the playoffs, losing in the Wild Card round to the New York Giants.

Can they take the next step in 2023-24, or are the Vikings due for more late-season disappointment? Let’s take a closer look at their odds for the upcoming NFL season.

Vikings Win Total Odds

  • Over 8.5 Wins (-130)
  • Under 8.5 Wins (+110)

Vikings Win Total Bet: Under 8.5 (+110)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit

Minnesota lived on the edge last season. Eleven of the Vikings’ 13 wins came by one score, breaking the previous record of 10 shared by the 1978 Oilers and 2019 Seahawks. Quarterback Kirk Cousins’ eight fourth-quarter comebacks were also a record.

Regardless of whether it was luck, skill or a combination of the two that got the job done, the Vikings seem like a prime candidate for regression this season, even with the NFL’s best receiver in Justin Jefferson at their disposal.

Vikings Make Playoffs Odds

  • Yes (+100)
  • No (-120)

Vikings Make Playoffs Bet: No (-120)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit

The Vikings are well-equipped offensively, even if Cousins is a bit Jekyll and Hyde. Jefferson is one of the most valuable non-quarterbacks in the NFL, and he will undoubtedly have another big season after catching a league-high 128 passes for 1,809 yards in 2022.

Minnesota somewhat addressed its deficiencies on defense in the draft, in addition to bringing in a new coordinator in Brian Flores, but there are still a lot of holes on that side of the ball. That could spell trouble, especially if some of Minnesota’s good fortune subsides.

Vikings Futures Prop Bets

Over 3.5 Regular Season Division Wins (+135)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit

Even if Minnesota regresses in 2023, they still hold their own within the NFC North. At the moment, there is no clear favorite, and the Vikings have a distinct advantage at U.S. Bank Stadium (8-1 last season). It’s reasonable to expect them to piece together a winning record against the Lions, Bears and Packers.

Kirk Cousins: Over 4,425.5 Passing Yards (+110)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit

Cousins likes to air it out, and Kevin O’Connell will let him. He finished with 4,547 passing yards (second-most in his career) and 29 touchdown passes on a career-high 643 attempts last season. Only three quarterbacks — Tom Brady, Justin Herbert and Patrick Mahomes — threw it more.

The Vikings, ranked ninth in our NFL offense power rankings, added a dynamic receiver in the first round of the draft in former USC star Jordan Addison. He should fit in seamlessly alongside Jefferson and tight end T.J. Hockenson for a team that likes to attack downfield.

Justin Jefferson: Most Regular Season Receiving Yards (+650)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit

What can’t Jefferson do? He led the NFL in receiving yards (1,809) in 2022 after finishing top 5 in each of his first two seasons. He’ll undoubtedly be in the mix again so long as he and Cousins stay healthy.

At +650, Jefferson has the best odds on the board, ahead of Cincinnati’s Ja’Marr Chase (+700). It’s worth a sprinkle.

How to Bet on Vikings Games in 2023

How to Bet Vikings Moneylines

NFL moneyline wagers are the simplest forms of NFL bets. All you have to do is pick a team to win a given game, and if they do, you win your bet.

Since winning is the only requirement to cash your bet, the odds for NFL moneylines can vary greatly depending on each team’s implied probability of winning (or losing) that game. Favorites are designated by a minus symbol (-200), whereas underdogs are represented by a plus symbol (+200).

If the Vikings are a (-200) favorite against the rival Bears, you would have to bet $20 to turn a $10 profit. If Minnesota was a (+200) underdog, you would profit $20 off a $10 bet.

  • 2022 Vikings Moneyline Record: 13-5

How to Bet Vikings Spreads

Betting the spread is the most efficient way to wager on NFL games, as it presents two evenly priced options. The spread, which is assigned a value by the books, is the number of points that the favorite is expected to win by over the underdog.

If the Vikings are 6-point favorites over the Packers, the spread for that game will be set up like this: Vikings -6 (-110) vs Packers +6 (-110).

In this scenario, the Vikings would have to win by more than six points for you to win your bet. If they were to win by a pair of field goals, your bet would push and you would recoup your initial wager.

Minnesota covered the spread only 41.7% of the time in 2022, but the Vikings should be decent moving forward with Cousins and Jefferson back in the fold.

  • 2022 Vikings Against the Spread Record: 7-10-1

How to Bet Vikings Over/Unders

If you don’t want to pick a side, you can still bet on Vikings games by wagering on the total number of points scored.

Sportsbooks set the amount of combined points they expect both teams in the game to score, and then you can bet on either the Over or the Under.

If you expect Cousins, Jefferson, and the Vikings to light up the scoreboard, then you’ll probably want to take the Over. If you think a specific game could be more defensive, then you would bet the Under. Minnesota’s games exceeded scoring expectations an NFL-high 66.7% of the time last season, and they should be priced high this year considering the talent back on offense.

  • 2022 Vikings Over/Under Record: 12-6
