On Saturday, the Minnesota Vikings will return to the field for their first matchup of the 2021 preseason when they take on the Denver Broncos inside U.S. Bank Stadium.

It will be the Vikings‘ first action since January when they closed the 2020 regular season with a 37-35 win over the Detroit Lions. It will also be Minnesota’s first game back inside U.S. Bank Stadium since December 20, 2020 when they suffered a Week 15 loss to the Chicago Bears.

Like the Vikings, the Broncos are a team that failed to make the playoffs last season. In fact, Denver hasn’t earned a postseason berth since 2015 when they won a Super Bowl.

Minnesota Vikings vs. Denver Broncos odds for Preseason Week 1:

Heading into Saturday’s Week 1 preseason matchup, the Broncos are currently favored by 2.5 points over the Vikings according to the latest odds from WynnBET.

If you just want to pick just a straight-up winner or a loser by betting the moneyline, WynnBET currently has Denver with -150 odds (bet $150 to win $100) compared to Minnesota at +115 (bet $100 to win $115).

WynnBET currently has the over/under for Saturday’s exhibition contest set at 34.5 points. The under is currently the favorite with -116 odds (bet $116 to win $100) compared to the over at -108 (bet $108 to win $100).

Minnesota Vikings Injury Report vs. Denver Broncos for Preseason Week 1:

Vikings receiver Justin Jefferson is still recovering from a sprained AC joint that he suffered last Friday. Minnesota anticipates Jefferson to be ready for the regular-season opener, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if they held him out of Saturday’s preseason game against the Broncos.

Minnesota Vikings vs. Denver Broncos Prediction for Preseason Week 1:

When it comes to placing a wager on an NFL preseason game, going with the moneyline is typically the best route to take.

For this matchup, taking the Vikings at +115 is the way to go. Since Mike Zimmer became the team’s head coach in 2014, Minnesota is 20-5 in the preseason, and during the six-year span between 2014 to 2019, the Vikings suffered one or fewer exhibition game losses in five of the six preseasons.

When it comes to winning preseason contests, Minnesota with Zimmer leading the way is one of the best bets anyone will find in the entire NFL.
