Divisional odds for the Minnesota Vikings: Kevin O’Connell, the former offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams, has been named the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings after the team’s two-year absence from the playoffs.
In the following table, you can view the results, top bets among our NFL choices, and predictions for the Minnesota Viking’s 2022 NFL futures chances – including division, conference, and Super Bowl odds – are highlighted.
The Vikings’ offseason emphasis was obviously on upgrading the 30th ranked defense from 2021, with proven talent throughout the offense, including QB Kirk Cousins, RB Dalvin Cook, WR Justin Jefferson, and WR Adam Thielen.
Their first two selections in the draft were utilized to acquire S Lewis Cine (Georgia) and CB Andrew Booth (Georgia), as well as LB Za’Darius Smith and DT Harrison Phillips (Clemson).
With a new-look 3-4 defense that seems much better, the Vikings are confident that they can win games.

Minnesota Vikings’ 2022 win total: Best bet
The odds are provided by OKBET Sportsbook for a complete list. Lines were last updated Saturday, May 14 at 3:41 a.m. ET.
There is an Over/Under of 8.5 (O: +130 | U: +10)
Minnesota’s non-divisional opponents couldn’t have been better. When comparing the NFC East and AFC East, it is evident which division is weaker overall: The NFC East or the AFC East.
Divisional odds for the Minnesota Vikings: After the Vikings’ Week 7 bye, they face four 2021 playoff teams in five weeks, the most challenging section of their schedule. Minnesota has a unique edge in three of those games, contested at the raucous US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
The key to this wager is the four games the Packers have won versus the Bears and Lions in which the Over has been successful. If any club wins five games, it will be seen as a major accomplishment. The Vikings won’t need many more victories to reach nine if they can handle business against these two teams and beat dregs like the Jets and Giants at home.
TAKE OVER 8.5 (-130).
Minnesota Vikings’ 2022 Super Bowl odds
A 100 bet on the Minnesota Vikings to win the Super Bowl in 2022 returns a profit of 4,000.
There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that the Minnesota Vikings have never won a Super Bowl. To expect a first-year coach to resolve a half-century of agony for Minnesotans may be asking too much of a new coach.
Divisional odds for the Minnesota Vikings: Minnesota has the talent to compete for the Super Bowl, but the AFC has too many top teams that are better than the NFC has to offer.
The Vikings have the same mathematical chance of winning the Super Bowl as the Saints, Patriots, Raiders, and Dolphins, yet only a small percentage of football fans believe any of those teams have a realistic chance of winning the NFL championship.
The best bet here is to PASS, despite the number’s allure as a low-stakes play with high-reward potential.
How likely are the Minnesota Vikings to make the playoffs in 2022?
Will Vikings make the playoffs: Yes +105 | No -130
In terms of determining whether or not something will happen, the Minnesota Vikings will make the playoffs, you have to take a look at the competition. Because of Green Bay’s reliance on quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the Vikings might lose their division and still reach the playoffs if the Packers’ season ends prematurely.
Giants, Commanders, Bears, Lions, Falcons, Panthers, and Seahawks are all teams who, in my opinion, should be ruled out of postseason contention based on their present standing. The NFC West is expected to produce three postseason teams, therefore the Vikings, Saints, and Only the Eagles remain in the running for a wild-card spot.
Divisional odds for the Minnesota Vikings: As both New Orleans and Philadelphia go to Minnesota early this season, both games might have a significant impact on the team’s postseason prospects. In order for the Vikings to make the playoffs (+105), they must split their two games against these two teams, neither of which have an easier schedule than Minnesota.
Winning chances In the NFC North Conference.
- The Chicago Bears have a point spread of +900.
- To win 1,000, stake 100 on the Detroit Lions.
- New Orleans Saints -140 (bet 140 to win 60)
- Bet 100 to win 270 on the Minnesota Vikings (+170).
The Packers are the clear favorites, but the division could be wide open if something happens to Aaron Rodgers, who has already shown interest in retiring.
There’s a good reason the Vikings are a +270 favorite, but unlike many other games in which clubs are up against two or three other contenders in their division, it’s evident that just Minnesota and Green Bay have a shot.
The Packers win if Aaron Rodgers is healthy. If you can afford to lose a modest amount of money, you might consider betting on the underdog Minnesota Vikings winning the NFC North (+270).
Odds to win NFC
Odds: +2000 (bet 100 to win 2,000)
Even though I don’t consider the Vikings as a team talented enough to win the championship, I enjoy the flyer betting that anything can happen once a team gets into the playoffs.
While it’s a long shot, a tiny bet should be placed on the VIKINGS TO WIN THE NFC (+2000) despite the odds.
