It’s been a long wait, but the 2021 regular season is finally here for the Minnesota Vikings. This year, they will begin their quest to get back into the playoffs by heading out on the road for a Week 1 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Despite only winning a combined six games in the last two seasons, the Bengals are not a team the Vikings should be taking lightly. Cincinnati has playmakers on both sides of the ball, and if Minnesota gets behind early, they might struggle to recover from their deficit.

So which team has the best odds to win this week’s regular-season opener? Will the Vikings begin their 2021 schedule with a victory or will the Bengals send Minnesota home with an 0-1 record?

Minnesota Vikings vs. Cincinnati Bengals Prediction for Week 1:

This is a game Minnesota should win. Since it’s still early in the season and not much is known yet about how all the teams will perform this year, making a wager on the moneyline instead of the point spread is likely the safer bet.
