The Minnesota Vikings had an extremely successful 2022 regular season, going 13-4 and winning the NFC North. Unfortunately, they were upset in the opening round of the playoffs by the New York Giants, but they have plenty to build on heading into 2023.

One of the most promising changes they made in the offseason was bringing in Brian Flores to be their new defensive coordinator. If he can significantly improve the Vikings defensively, the sky's the limit for Minnesota in 2023.

I broke down my best bet for this Viking's team in my "32 bets for 32 teams" article, which you can read here.

In this article, I'm going to break down all of the available futures odds for the Vikings this season, including their projected win total and their odds to win Super Bowl 58.

Minnesota Vikings Super Bowl 58 odds

The Vikings odds to win the Super Bowl aren't quite as good as many Minnesota fans may expect, but you can look at that one of two ways. Either you can be insulted by the odds, or you can look at it as an opportunity to have great value betting on a team that has a real chance to contend in the NFC.

At +4000, the Vikings of an implied probability of 2.44% of winning this year's Super Bowl. A $100 bet on them at +4000 would win you a profit of $4,000 if they're able to achieve the feat.

Minnesota Vikings win total prediction for the 2023 season

Despite winning 13 games last season, oddsmakers have their win total projection at just 8.5 for the upcoming campaign, meaning they expect significant regression from the Vikings in 2023.

Will they go 13-4 again this year? Maybe not. Even Vikings fans have to admit they likely had a better record than they deserved. Just look at their -3 point differential for proof of that. But, are they five games worse than their 2022 record? I certainly don't think so.

They've added some talent on offense, re-signed Danielle Hunter, and have a new defensive identity with Flores at the helm. I love the OVER on their win total this season.

Minnesota Vikings odds to win NFC North

As I wrote in my "32 bets for 32 teams" article, the Vikings to win the NFC North is my favorite bet ofr them this season. This is what I wrote:

"I’m not buying in on the hype for the Lions and I’m extremely low on the Bears and Packers. By default, that leaves me with the Minnesota Vikings to win the division and I can’t believe they’re priced to do exactly that.

"They were the fun team for everyone to call frauds last season, but I oddly think their record reflected where they should have ended up based on talent. I feel they overperformed and underperformed at the same time, if that makes any sense at all.

"I think the biggest change they made this offseason to help this team moving forward is the hiring of Brian Flores, arguably the best defensive coordinator in the NFL. They also moved on from veteran receiver, Adam Thielen, but brought in rookie receiver Jordan Addison.

"My prediction is they perform a lot better on the stat sheet this season but finish with virtually the same record. If they do that, they’ll be NFC North champions once again."

Minnesota Vikings odds to win NFC

While the Vikings' Super Bowl odds and win total projection are a bit insulting to Minnesota fans, it has to be at least a little bit more promising to see the Vikings listed with the sixth best odds to win the NFC.

Best Minnesota Vikings season-long prop bets

Jordan Addison Most Regular Season Rookie Receiving Yards (+260)

The Vikings lost Adam Thielen in the offseason, but filled the gap by drafting wide receiver, Jordan Addison, out of USC with the 23rd overall pick. He proved at the college level that he can be a game-breaker, winning the Fred Biletnikoff Award in 2021 as the league's most outstanding receiver.

Sure, Justin Jefferson will still likely get the most targets, but there's not a single rookie receiver that will be the top option on their team when the season begins. In fact, with Jefferson drawing most of the attention, including some double teams, that should open things up for Addison on the other side of the field.

I have high hopes for him this season and I expect him to be the leader in rookie receiving yards.
