Best Vikings Betting Lines 2023
The Minnesota Vikings finished last season with an 8-9 record, but still finished second in the NFC North.
Of course, an 8-9 record wasn’t good enough to make the playoffs, but finishing in second place proved just how bad the NFC North was last year between the Vikings, Lions, and Bears.
The Vikings will have their work cut out for them again this season. Aaron Rodgers will be returning to the Packers, and both the Bears and Lions improved on paper. However, so did the Vikings. Minnesota, if it can stay healthy, is a dangerous team to look out for this year.

Vikings Super Bowl 57 Odds
Vikings to Win Super Bowl (+4000)
Oddsmakers are projecting the Vikings to make the postseason this year, which is good news if you’re going to bet on Minnesota to make, and potentially win, the Super Bowl.
The offense has been pretty stable over the last few years with Kirk Cousins at quarterback, Dalvin Cook at running back, and Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen at wide receiver. Needless to say, the Vikings have offensive firepower.
However, Thielen and Cook missed multiple games due to injury last season. If they can stay healthy, the offense will continue to be dangerous.
As for the defense, the Vikings addressed that side of the ball in the NFL Draft, adding Lewis Cine at free safety and Andrew Booth Jr. as a potential starting corner.
If the Vikings gang up on the Bears and Lions, as they should, and put together a winning season, they should make the playoffs. From there, I guess anything is possible, but there are a lot of question marks.
For now, the Vikings are nowhere close to being a favorite. Cousins isn’t elite like the other premier quarterbacks in the league, but he has been able to limit turnovers. That’s always a plus.
Vikings NFC Championship Odds
Vikings to Win NFC Championship (+2000)
The Vikings aren’t better than the Buccaneers, Packers, Rams, 49ers, or even the Cowboys in the NFC.
Minnesota is kind of in that “unknown" category with teams like the Eagles and Saints. These teams could put together nice seasons or have average seasons that keep them out of the playoffs.
Realistically, the Vikings probably won’t be playing in the NFC Championship game. Don’t waste your money in this regard.
Vikings NFC North Winner Odds
Vikings to Win NFC North (+240)
There are many questions regarding the Packers this season. Green Bay won’t have star wide receiver Davante Adams, and some believe that will have an impact on Aaron Rodgers’ play this season.
Just like Tom Brady, Rodgers can likely win with whatever wide receivers he is working with. He made Jordy Nelson one of the best receivers in his era, for example.
The Packers are always dominating the division and have won at least 13 games in each of the last three seasons. I don’t think the Vikings will be good enough to get anywhere close to 13 wins, and the Packers should retain control of the NFC North.
Vikings Make Playoffs Odds
Vikings to Make Playoffs (-138)
With seven teams making the playoffs in each conference in 2022, there’s definitely some hope for the Vikings.
I mentioned the Buccaneers, Packers, Rams, 49ers, and Cowboys as the favorites to make the playoffs. Then we’ll need two more teams, likely between the Eagles, Vikings, and Saints.
The Saints are in a tough spot with Tampa Bay in their division, while the Eagles always seem to struggle in NFC East play, especially against the Cowboys. The Vikings would be a lower seed, but they have a roster that’s very capable of making the playoffs.
Vikings Win Total Bets 2023
Vikings: OVER 9.5 Wins (-110)
The Vikings will have the chance to prove how worthy they are of a postseason berth early in the 2022 campaign.
After a likely loss in Week 1 against Green Bay, the Vikings take on the Eagles in Week 2. If Minnesota wins that game, they’re going to be in good shape with the Lions up next. They could realistically start off 2-1.
After that, they’ll take on the Saints in London. If the Vikings beat the Saints, confidence will start rising when it comes to postseason aspirations. Minnesota also gets to take on Washington, the Jets, and the Giants on top of their divisional opponents.
After looking at the schedule, I like the Vikings to win at least 10 games. Anything extra would be the icing on the cake.
Vikings Prop Bets 2023
Justin Jefferson: Most Regular-Season Receiving Yards (+9000)
Jefferson is the favorite to finish with the most receiving yards in 2022, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Jefferson racked up 1,616 yards last season, which was also good for second in the league, finishing behind Rams star Cooper Kupp (1,947).
Jefferson made 108 receptions — good for fourth in the league — on 167 targets and was durable for the entire season, playing every game while achieving at least four receptions in every game but one.
Jefferson’s volume could help him become the best receiver in the league next season. These are solid odds, as no one would be surprised to see him lead the league in receiving.
Dalvin Cook: Most Regular-Season Rushing Yards (+1000)
Minnesota would be in for quite the season if Jefferson and Cook have the most yards in their respective areas, but it’s not out of the realm of possibility.
Despite only playing 13 games last season, Cook still had 249 attempts on the ground and 1,159 rushing yards. Imagine if he was healthy and able to rush throughout the entire season?
The Vikings added Ed Ingram in the NFL Draft and he’ll likely help out at the right guard spot. That’s a step in the right direction to help Cook get cooking again in 2022.
How to Bet Vikings Moneylines
NFL moneyline wagers are very straightforward and easy to understand. If you know how to make predictions about who will win a game, you basically know how to bet moneylines.
A team’s chances of winning a game fluctuate with each matchup, and as such, so do their odds. For example, the Vikings might be favored one week over the Lions. In that case, they would have a minus symbol (-170) next to their odds. Here, a $17 bet would win you $10.
Alternatively, if the Vikings are playing in Green Bay, they might be a (+145) underdog — notice the plus symbol. Here, a $10 bet would win you $14.50.

How to Bet Vikings Spreads
Spread betting is just as simple and straightforward as moneyline betting, though there is a bit more of a learning curve here. Instead of picking a team to win, you’re picking if a team can win by a predetermined amount.
For example, the Vikings may be 6.5-point favorites against the Lions. At a sportsbook, this would look something like this: Vikings -6.5 (-110) vs Lions +6.5 (-110).
In this case, Minnesota would need to win the game by seven points or more to cover the spread. If they lose the game or win by fewer than six points, then the Lions would cover the spread.

How to Bet Vikings Over/Unders
Over/Unders (also known as totals) are another common and simple NFL wager that you can make. Here, the winner of the game doesn’t matter. Instead, you’re picking how many total points will be scored in the game.
Oddsmakers will set a projected scoring total based on how many points they believe will be scored in a game. From there, it’s up to you to decide whether the total will be Over or Under the number they suggest.
Injuries and statistics play a key role when it comes to betting totals, so make sure you’re as informed as possible about a game if the total seems suspiciously high or low.
