Vikings' 2014 Win Total Odds

Minnesota Vikings 2014 NFL odds Adrian Peterson

LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - The Minnesota Vikings have a new coach and drafted a new quarterback but will they struggle again this season?

The Vikings had themselves a busy offseason. They fired Leslie Frazier as head coach and replaced him with former Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer. They also let go offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave and hired Norv Turner to replace him, all while firing Alan Williams and hiring George Edwards as defensive coordinator.

In free agency, they signed defensive tackle Linval Joseph (Giants) and cornerback Captain Munnerlyn (Panthers), both of which should start. They also added roster depth with the additions of Kurt Coleman (Eagles), Derek Cox (Chargers), Corey Wootton (Bears) and Terrell Manning (Chargers). Josh Freeman, Toby Gerhart, Jared Allen, Kevin Williams and Chris Cook were lost via free agency.

In the draft the Vikings used the ninth overall pick on UCLA pass rusher Anthony Barr and then traded back into the first round in order to select Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. In the third round the team drafted Oregon State defensive end Scott Crichton and Georgia Southern running back Jerick McKinnon. In the fifth round they got a potential steal when Stanford guard David Yankey fell to them at pick No. 145.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Vikings' win total for 2014 is currently sitting at 6. So will they win over or under that total?

Zimmer should have a positive impact on the defense and with Adrian Peterson still toting the rock offensively, Minnesota should be competitive. The problem is that Bridgewater or Matt Cassel will start at quarterback, which means the Vikings will either have inexperience and/or limitations at the most important position on the field. This roster has talent but the Vikes also play in a challenging division and I just don't see them winning more than six games having to play Green Bay, Chicago and Detroit twice. I'd lean under.
