As the NFL Draft quickly approaches, one Las Vegas sports book has already projected the 2019 win totals for the Minnesota Vikings and the rest of the league.

In each of the last four years, the Minnesota Vikings have finished with at least eight wins during the regular season. With much of their same roster expected to return in 2019, it doesn’t seem like a crazy idea to think that the Vikings will have a similar win total next season.

According to a recent projection of each NFL team’s win totals for 2019, Minnesota is actually expected to win more games next season than they did last year.

Las Vegas sports book operator CG Technology recently revealed their projected win totals for every team around the league and they predicted the Vikings to finish with nine wins in 2019. Minnesota is tied for the third-most projected wins next season in the NFC with the Green Bay Packers.

The Los Angeles Rams (10.5), New Orleans Saints (10.5), Chicago Bears (9.5), and Philadelphia Eagles (9.5) are the only four NFC teams that CG Technology believes will have more wins than the Vikings in 2019. Unsurprisingly, the New England Patriots are at the top of the projections with 11 wins.

Despite their failure to make the playoffs last season, it’s clear that there is still a belief that Minnesota can find success in 2019.

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has his team in position to make the postseason each year. But there always seems to be a handful of close games that determine Minnesota’s degree of success each season.

If the Vikings can come out on the right side of these close matchups in 2019, they should be able to surpass their projected win total and find themselves back in the playoffs.
