Week 4 at the Houston Texans?

Now, this is a matchup that should be a little more favorable for the Vikings as the Texans are also sitting with an 0-2 record after the first two weeks of the season.

However, no team in the NFL probably had a tougher two-game slate to open up the year than Houston as they had to face the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs on the road in Week 1 and then in Week 2, they had to take on the reigning-MVP Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens.

Before the Texans host Minnesota in Week 4, first they have to head out on the road for a matchup with the 2-0 Pittsburgh Steelers. Getting a victory over the Steelers is going to be tough for Houston, so it’s possible that they could enter their game against the Vikings with an 0-3 record.

Out of their next few matchups, this one against the Texans is probably Minnesota’s best chance to get a win. This isn’t to say the Vikings can’t beat the Titans in Week 3. But if someone were looking to place a bet on when Minnesota will get their first victory of the season, Week 4 against Houston looks like it could be worth a wager.

Chance the Vikings win in Week 4: 60 percent
