Minnesota Vikings Super Bowl Odds Jump To 33:1
By Adam Carlson
It wasn’t that long ago that I was discussing the odds that Las Vegas was placing on the 2015 season for the Minnesota Vikings. Oddsmakers found the team tied for the bottom of the NFC North and figured that 50:1 odds to win the Super Bowl were fair. Since then, the bandwagon of supporters in the media as well as the return of star running back Adrian Peterson have caused their odds to be re-evaluated.

Now, on the Bovada.com website, they have increased the odds that Minnesota Vikings will win the 2015 Super Bowl to 33:1. That means that for every dollar that you bet on Minnesota winning the big one, you’d earn $33 if they actually manage to bring home a Lombardi Trophy. This was the biggest change to Bovada’s betting board during the recent update.
That’s not the only interesting thing. The rise of the Vikings’ odds has caused a big change in how Vegas is thinking the NFC North will look for 2015. Here are the teams in order from most likely to win the Super Bowl to least likely including their current betting lines:
- Green Bay Packers (6:1)
- Minnesota Vikings (33:1)
- Detroit Lions (40:1)
- Chicago Bears (50:1)
Currently, the Minnesota Vikings are tied for 12th best odds on the list. They are also tied for the 7th best odds in the NFC. This is a glowing endorsement for the direction that the team is heading in with their youth, solid coaching, and stabilized quarterback situation.
As for the teams with the best odds to win, The Green Bay Packers remain as Bovada’s favorite to win the 2015 Super Bowl, with the Seattle Seahawks, Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots, and Dallas Cowboys making up the top 5.
