NFL: Preseason-Los Angeles Rams at Minnesota Vikings Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The 2020-21 NFL Season is still some months off, but there are some new post-draft odds coming out that provide some insights into how betting markets view the Vikings chances this up-coming season.

Notes

The Vikings 25-1 Super Bowl odds has been a pretty standard one the past few years, and so far hasn’t changed looking ahead to this season, and represents odds for an expected playoff team.

NFC North division champion odds puts the Vikings and Packers as basically co-favorites, followed by the Bears, and a further gap down to the Lions.

Among the individual player odds, I found it surprising that Troy Dye was the only Vikings draft pick listed by Bovada for defensive rookie of the year.

The 800.5 over/under for Justin Jefferson’s receiving yards looks fairly encouraging. He is tied for the highest over/under in receiving yards with Ruggs and Reagor among rookie WRs. As a comparison, Stefon Diggs’ over/under for receiving yards is 1049.5.

Other than that, nothing else really leaps off the screen as unusual or noteworthy. For the most part an expectation of a similar season as last year and the last few really.
