Vikings Season Odds

After losing to Philadelphia in the Divisional Round of the 2008 playoffs, the Minnesota Vikings are hoping that a couple of key offseason additions will get them over the hump in ‘09.

As of this writing, the Vikings are still waiting to hear back from free agent quarterback Brett Favre. If Favre feels as though his surgically repaired arm can hold up over the course of an entire season, Minnesota will sign the grizzled vet and employ him as the starter.

If the Favre plan falls through, the Vikings already traded for former Houston Texans quarterback Sage Rosenfels and some within the organization still feel as though Tarvaris Jackson can develop into a quality NFL starter.

Outside of trading for Rosenfels, Minnesota didn’t make a lot of noise on the free agency this year. Instead, they concentrated on the draft, where they selected one of the most athletic prospects in the 2009 class in Florida wide receiver Percy Harvin. The team hopes that Harvin can pair with running back Adrian Peterson and wideout Bernard Berrian to give Minnesota one of the better offenses in the NFC.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL have made the Vikings 20/1 long shots to win Super Bowl XLIV. They’ve also given Minnesota 9/1 short odds to win the AFC and 1.5/1 odds to win the AFC East Division.

The Vikings are one of the more intriguing teams in the NFC. If they land Favre, they immediately become the favorites to win the NFC North, even over the now Jay Cutler-led Chicago Bears. Favre proved last year that he still has plenty in the tank, but once he suffered his arm injury, his production went in the toilet. If Rosenfels winds up being Minnesota’s starting quarterback, expect the Vikes to once again be a ground-control attack with Peterson and they’re stacked offensive line. Another thing to keep an eye on regarding this team is what kind of impact the suspensions of Pat Williams and Kevin Williams will have. They haven’t been officially suspended yet, but are expected to miss the first four games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. If they can hold it together while the Williames are out and improve defending the pass, the Vikings are going to be in the hunt this year – with or without Favre. Remember, this team won the NFC North last year with Gus Frerotte.
