Not that I agree with this guy, but he gives some legitimate reasons why he thinks the Vikes will win 8 games or under.

He said that rookie running back Adrian Peterson lead the NFL in rushing last year, but that isn't true.

Shows what this guy knows.

What a gambler. I agree with him, we are in a much worse shape than last year.

Yeah, he misquoted TJack's TD total too.
And, on our big SD win, he claims Rivers got his first start on the road in week 9...?
That's not true, is it????
And then goes on to claim that Luis Castillo would have singlehandedly changed the outcome of the game.
Sure, he's a hell of a player, but to say the other 10 guys couldn't do it without him is kind of silly.
There are ways to help out backups.
He doesn't even mention the whooping we put up on the champs!!!
(Or how that might influence our boys beliefs about what they can do...)

The stuff he says about us playing tough divisions and some real tough/physical road games is, unfortunately for us, Very True.
But, that is exactly the kind of team the TOA has created, and with a bit of luck on our injury front, I think we can win those kind of games...road or home.

IMO, 8.5 is a reasonable o/u number for the Vikings at this point.
There are only 6 teams with higher numbers, and only one NFC team: Pats, Colts, Cowboys, Chargers, Steelers and Jags.


We are in the same company as the Seahawks, Eagles, Saints and last year's SB champs.
The Pack is at 8.

Look at it from the the o/u numbers and we are in a ranking group from 7-11.
Not bad.

So now, all you people who are saying the Vikes will be NFC North Division champs with at least 10 wins are having doubts?

I think they'll win the Super Bowl over the Colts, but I'm just saying that this prediction isn't totally uncalled for.

It's just a preseason O/U, who cares.

Gambling lines are another game. 8.5 O/U is very reasonable.
I doubt they get over 10 wins this year and if a few things go sour they could finish at 0.500.
I think everyone would bet the over on this one, on this site anyway.
My last year prediction for the season was within a couple games of 0.500....easy to hit.
This year I'm going with >0.500, but, I don't think it will be by much.

A lot of people confuse O/U with predicted record.
NOT the same thing.
I actually think that 8.5 is a pretty dead on for the Vikes right now.
The Bet is basically "will they finish with a winning record?".

how the hell can you call yourself a vikings fan if you don't think they can win more than 8 games and possibly take the division i mean come on the only threat really in our division is greenbay i really could see minnesota winning more than 8 games i say 10-6 that is the most realistic scenario

A Prophet you are not, 500? Are you kidding me? If we go 500 or just a game over 500 i want Childress head on a stick. No reason what so ever this team cant go 12-4 11-5 barring any sorta major injuries to a impact player.

Yes, and if you use these numbers, we win the NFC North and are in the playoffs, anywhere from a 2-4 seed.
If they offered that to me today without playing the season, I would take it in a heartbeat.

Re-read what I said.
I said >0.500, but not by much.
If you want me to put a specific call on it I will go with 10-6.
That will be good enough to make the playoffs.
The playoffs are a whole different story, new season.

There will be plenty of people that will give up on the season if the first game of the season is an L.

I'm not of the panicking type.
Mark the thread and revisit it at the end of the season.

You're correct in a way.
Vegas is all about winning money.
So, they put the O/U at a place that is a tough call.
They get a bunch of people betting on both sides of the O/U and win some coin, or, if they don't, they don't lose a lot.
If they make the O/U ridiculous in either direction they will have a higher probability of losing money.
The trick is to make people go hmmmmmmmmmmm wtf should I do.
I'm sure I'm stating the obvious.
Nodak will probably give and in-depth statistical analysis.

I see 9-7 possible, 10-6 is more likely but 11-5 if we get a break or 2 and stay healthy, I see that as a reality

What are you talking about?
I didn't say that I agree with him.
Besides, who says you're not a Vikings fan if you're realistic about a season's outcome?
Most regular users on here are able to shed the purple glasses once and awhile and have realistic expectations.
That doesn't mean we're not fans of the team.

That sound alot more realistic, i'll take 10-6 any day. That will put us in the playoffs easily in the NFC. I really think there capable of sneaking a few more wins in though then that. I will not call the season a bust if we start 0-2 or 0-3 but this board will light up like a X mas tree if we end up starting 0-2. I may not have a high post count but been here longer then most lurking around and getting my Viking info to know it will be the end of the world to most if we start 0-2..lol

I cannot see any reason this guy would be listened to by anyone ... even the degenerates have better degenerates to listen to.
I don't even think that over/under on the Vikes in Vegas is 8 1/2 ... I would imagine it is in the area of 9 1/2 ... I could find it if I felt like it ... maybe later.
I personally have the Vikes at 11-5 and winning the division.

Vegas, most likely.

You can also go online. One site that I havn't used but have heard is reliable is sportsbook.com.
These are the odds that they give relating to the Vikings. In my opinion odds makers are the most accurate predictors of what will happen, mainly because they put money on it.

Catching up with everyone I think it is important to note that they are not saying the vikings will not win 9 games they are saying there is a 50% chance they won't win 9 games and a 50% chance that they will. Take the purple glasses off and that is pretty reasonable.

No thats not totally right. The O/U is set to make an equal amount of gamblers pick both sides. That is how they make their money. So they are saying, we think half of the gamblers bet on Minnesota to win 9 or more games. The other half thinks they will win 8 games or less.

This hack in particular is picking the under, but thats just him, not Vegas.

It's certainly not a bad line.

lol, you can bet that there are a few that will resurface, as they always do, after a loss.
Spew their venom and then disappear into the shadows the following week when the Vikings pull their heads out of their asses.
I hate when the Vikings lose, but, quite frankly, the board is more fun after a loss.
The illogical come out in droves.

Yeah ... just did some legwork myself. Most places have the O/U at 8.5 on the Vikings (some have climbed to an even 9) but almost all of them started at 8 wins even. Look for it to continue to climb as the season gets closer. They will have too many people bettering the OVER on that and will need some under bets. I imagine it will be an even 9 or 9.5 by season start ... so get in now while the getting is good!
