Chiefs at Vikings Odds

When the Minnesota Vikings host the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday night, the Brett Favre era will officially begin.

After posturing for months on whether or not to stay retired or play in 2009, Favre eventually caved in to his desire to lace up the spikes again and signed a two-year contract with the Vikings on Tuesday. Given that he already knows Brad Childress’s offense, Favre will likely play at least a drive in Friday night’s game vs. the Chiefs.

Favre joins an offense that revolves around dynamic running back Adrian Peterson. Both Favre and Peterson will benefit from Minnesota’s solid offensive line, which features the left side of tackle Bryant “Mount” McKinnie and guard Steve Hutchinson. The offense will also be helped by the team’s selection of wide receiver Percy Harvin in April’s draft.

Despite dropping their preseason opener against the Texans, the Chiefs’ young defense looked good, holding Houston to just 280 total yards. Kansas City’s offense, however, struggled under new head coach Todd Haley’s direction, although receiver Dwayne Bowe did have five catches for 70 yards.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made the Vikings 3.5-point favorites in this contest. The over/under total has been set at 36.

The trends favor Minnesota in this matchup, as the Vikings are 5-1 against the spread after allowing 200 or less total yards. Kansas City is just 1-8 against the spread in their last nine preseason game.
