NFL Predictions: How many games will Vikings win in 2017? 8/16/17

How many games will the Minnesota Vikings win in 2017? Let's break down their odds.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Vikings' over/under for wins in 2017 has been set at 8.5. The team also has odds of 45/1 to win the Super Bowl, 18/1 to win the NFC Conference Championship, and 19/5 to win the NFC North Division this upcoming season.

The Vikings shelled out a lot of money to improve their running game in 2017. They inked former Lions offensive tackle Riley Reiff to a five-year, $58.75 million contract and then handed Mike Remmers five years and $30 million. They signed running back Latavius Murray to a three-year, $15 million deal, and re-signed receiver Adam Thielen as well. Among their free agent depatures were Matt Kalil (Panthers), Cordarrelle Patterson (Raiders), Adrian Peterson (Saints) and Captain Munnerlyn (Panthers).

The Vikings also added a slew of players in the draft. They traded their first-round pick to the Eagles in the Sam Bradford trade but in the second round they gave Bradford a new wepon in running back Dalvin Cook. They also took center Pat Elflein in the third and had back-to-back selections in the fourth round, where they took defensive tackle Jaleel Johnson and linebacker Ben Gedeon.

Our Prediction: I love the over 8.5 for the Vikings' win total. They have a considerably easier schedule than they had a year ago and their defense remains excellent under coach Mike Zimmer. If their offensive line can make significant improvements in front of Bradford, their offense shouldn't be a liability. This might not be an 11-win team, but I like the Vikings to win at least nine games this upcoming season.
