The Teddy Bridgewater Era officially gets underway at TCF Bank Stadium on Sunday when the Minnesota Vikings line up against the Atlanta Falcons. Since you can gamble on just about anything these days, the folks from Bovada in Las Vegas have put together some over/unders on Bridgewater's performance in his NFL debut.
Here's where the numbers are at:
Over/Under 220 1/2 yards
Over 1.5 (+160, 8/5 odds)
Under 1.5 (-200, 1/2 odds)
Over .5 (-250, 2/5 odds)
Under .5 (+200, 2/1 odds)
You know, if I didn't know any better, I'd say that Vegas was expecting Teddy Bridgewater to have a relatively horrible debut on Sunday. The "smart" money is against him throwing more than one touchdown pass and at least one interception.
Honestly, I'd probably have to take the "over" on all three categories. Bridgewater might throw a pick, but he's also going to get the Vikings into the end zone a couple of times. I have a feeling that Teddy is going to be over that 220 1/2 yards that the number is set at, too.
What do you think? Is the Vikings' new starting quarterback going to be better or worse than the numbers you see here?
