While some fans are content just watching their favorite teams on the television at home or attending some of the games during the season, others can see that as an opportunity to make a few bucks putting their money down on (or against) their squads.
The Minnesota Vikings are no different. There are opportunities to bet on several things surrounding the squad, but the most interesting by far at this point in the season is looking at the betting line for season win total.
Fans can learn a lot about the expectations of their team by looking at the betting lines on popular sports gambling websites. Back in February, Pro Football Talk reported that the software many betting outlets use for their professional football line setting (CG Technology) had the Minnesota Vikings betting line set at 6.5 wins for the 2015 NFL season.

Since then, the betting line for the Vikings have gone up , but not by much. Here is a list of the Over/Under for Minnesota Vikings wins during the 2015 NFL Season according to three popular betting websites:
As you can see, the line has essentially been set at 7 wins for the Minnesota Vikings during the 2015 NFL season. That could change multiple times leading up to the actual start of season, but for now it appears as though all the analysis is pointing toward a seven win season.
Last season, the final betting line on the Vikings was 6.5 wins on Football Locks. The Vikings would have won the “Over” bet that year after winning 7 games during their 2014 NFL Campaign.
What do you guys think? Would you be willing to take the “Over” or the “Under” bet on the 2015 Minnesota Vikings at 7 wins? Let me know in the comments below.
