Vikings provide value on futures markets

Adam Thielen

The Minnesota Vikings are among the forgotten teams in the NFC and that means there are value bets available at your favorite sportsbooks.

A win away from the Super Bowl in 2017, the Vikings disappointed supporters who expected Minnesota to take the next step after adding Kirk Cousins prior to last season.

The enthusiasm in the NFC North has shifted to a rejuvenated Chicago Bears team and the back on the Green Bay Packers.

Let those markets hog the spotlight and steal some money from the books with these great futures bets.

Kirk Cousins: Over 4,050.5 Passing Yards
-120 odds at

This is the lock of the preseason. Cousins threw for 4,298 yards last year in what was considered a disappointing season. Barring injury, he’ll easily blow past that number this year.

This is a quarterback that threw for 4,917 yards on a mediocre Washington Redskins team three years ago.

With one season under his belt in Minny, the second season in the NFC North will be a great one for Cousins. He has all the weapons to far surpass the 4,000-yard mark with ease.

Adam Thielen: Over 1,185.5 Receiving Yards
-110 odds at

Thielen has eclipsed 1,200 receiving yards the last two seasons. There’s no reason to think he won’t do it again this year.

In his second-year playing alongside Cousins, you have every right to believe he’ll improve on last season’s total: 1,373 yards.

Lock in the Over now while you still can.

Vikings to win NFC North
+225 odds at

As much as I enjoyed watching the Bears defense last year, the jury is still out on Mitch Trubisky. It seemed like every throw he makes has a chance to be intercepted.

I’m not ready to put any money down on Aaron Rodgers and the Packers just yet either.

That leaves the Minnesota Vikings. Improvements on offense in Cousins’ second year and a bounce-back year for the defense.

The Vikings have a brutal schedule but success within the division can get them the NFL North title.

Love’em or Fade’em. You can bet these picks at MyBookie.
