Vikings Odds and StatsAfter just three wins in 2011, very few people, do not tell anyone, believed that Minnesota Vikings could present something interesting last year. Overall, the team was still pretty average, 14 in the NFL betting in offense and defense, but still played in the playoffs. A team with those numbers are not making the playoffs, unless they have a man named Adrian Peterson in the cast.

Odds to Win NFC North: +600 at
Regular Season Win Total: 7.5 at
Betting Props: Adrian Peterson to win NFL MVP (15/1) at

Even back from a serious injury in the knee, Peterson defied logic and had a brilliant year: 2,097 yards rushing (getting just nine break the record total in a single season), 12 touchdowns and an average of six yards per carry frightening , performance that earned him the MVP award. It is no exaggeration to say that he brought back to the Vikings last year.


The numbers prove it. Minnesota came in December with a 6-6 campaign, needed to win all the remaining matches to dream playoffs. Well, the Vikings won the Chicago Bears, St. Louis Rams, Houston Texans and the Green Bay Packers and achieved one of the wildcard. In the last four games, QB Christian Ponder threw 630 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. In the games, "All Day" Peterson rushed 651 yards and scored four touchdowns them. 'S scary when the RB has yard quarterback has more rushing yards.

The fact that both shows the greatness of Peterson and Ponder fragile. He protects the ball well, but also does much. This year shadowing the experienced Matt Cassel, the former heads of early 2013, once property can cost more inconsistent.

To make matters worse, Ponder lost WR Percy Harvin, most dynamic player the air strike. The veteran Greg Jennings has come into place, it will be interesting to see how you will exit without an elite quarterback throwing him the ball. Despite the low, I can not complain Ponder to launch options: in addition to Jennings, is a rookie WR Cordarrelle Paterson, one of the three options in the first round of last draft with Kyle Rudolph, the main focus in the last year zone on the tight end position.

The good news for Minnesota fans is that the pieces that helped Peterson to do what he did remain the same. offensive line led by Phil Loadholt and Matt Kalil and fullback Jerome Felton will continue to open holes for the "All Day" do do better in 2013.

Since the defense has undergone some changes, at least more reinforcements were low. The main result was the surprising dismissal of CB Antoine Winfield, who despite 35 years was still working. The first year of Xavier Rhodes, another first-round draft choice of the end, it has everything to replace it with Chris Cook. The only weak point of the secondary is strong safety position, the Vikings do not have a player with a talent for promising partner Harrison Smith.

The first of three first-round picks were spent with DT Shariff Floyd, a great improvement to a defensive line that totaled 44 sacks last year and is the name given to DE Jared Allen. The main weakness of the team was the MLB position, to acquire the experience Desmond Bishop, former Packers. must maintain if kept healthy and fit the 4-3 scheme again OLB Erin Henderson, a position origin.

BSN Sports Blog prediction: Five first-round betting picks in the last two projects show that the Minnesota Vikings are doing a great job of thinking about the future restructuring of the franchise. I see the Vikings too strong a couple of years, but not now. The Christian Ponder QB breaks a branch, but it is not, and probably never will be elite. Adrian Peterson should have another good season, but not so out of the curve as it was in 2012, never in the history of one RB rushed for two thousand yards two consecutive years. Minnesota is the third force in the NFC North, if you win more than eight games will be a surprise.
