The Minnesota Vikings may not be among the favorites to win Super Bowl LVIII but the oddsmakers still believe there is a chance it can happen.
Optimistic fans are always saying that this will be the year the Minnesota Vikings finally accomplish the task of winning a Super Bowl. However, more realistic fans know that this year may not be the team's best.
Despite finishing with a 13-4 record last season, the Vikings were bounced out of the playoffs in the Wild Card round of the playoffs and look to improve as a franchise so they can make a deeper run in the postseason.
There are reasons to be encouraged about the upcoming season. Superstar wide receiver Justin Jefferson has been getting tons of praise while the tean hired a new defensive coordinator to hopeully slow down opposing teams.
What are the current odds the Minnesota Vikings win Super Bowl LVIII?
Sadly, the odds of the Vikings bringing home a Lombardi Trophy this year aren't looking so good. According to BetSided, Minnesota has pre-training camp odds of +4000, as well as +3500 in the body of the piece, to get the job done, tying them with the Cleveland Browns, New Orleans Saints, and Seattle Seahawks.
To make matters worse, the purple and gold aren't even the favorites in the NFC North to win Super Bowl 58. The Detroit Lions have +2500 odds (+2200 in the body) of reaching and winning their first Super Bowl in franchise history.
Positively, the Vikings are tied for the fifth best odds in the NFC. They trail only the Eagles, 49ers, Cowboys, and Lions. The odds could be much worse, but they could also be much better heading into the 2023 NFL season.
Anything can happen in the NFL and there have been some crazy outcomes in past years. Despite that, this odds placement for the Minnesota Vikings to win Super Bowl 58 seems fair considering the team's competitive rebuild and levels of talent on the roster.
