Online betting fans had high expectations for the Minnesota Vikings before they acquired Brett Favre as quarterback but his arrival has only increased football betting excitement. Brett Favre is considered by many to be the missing piece to Minnesota being a complete online betting commodity.
Favre will be asked to simply manage the game for Minnesota in the 2009 football betting season rather than to carry the team on his shoulders, as he has been used to doing for the past several online betting seasons both at Green Bay and at the New York Jets.
Favre had a strong preseason game against the Houston Texans in week 3 and finished the football betting preseason with a quarterback rating of 97.9. Favre will lead a diversified attack that has many online betting weapons.
Running back Adrian Peterson was an online betting workhorse last year that ran for 1760 yards and 10 touchdowns. Wide receiver Bernard Berrian is an online betting breakaway threat that caught 48 passes last year for a 20.1 yards per catch average with 7 touchdowns.
And the Viking defense is considered to be one of the best in all of online betting. The home standing Cleveland Browns will begin the Eric Mangini era with instability at quarterback. Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson were neck and neck during the online betting preseason for the number one spot.
Quinn had an online betting quarterback rating of 86.1 during exhibition action while Anderson fared worse with a 51.3 quarterback rating. Anderson was the starter for most of the 2008 online betting season. Rookie Running back James Davis had a strong preseason with 186 yards on 24 carries and 1 touchdown.
Davis can take heat off of whoever is quarterback with effective running. The Browns have failed to cover just 1 out of their last 6 games as a home dog while the Vikings have covered just 2 out of their last 8 as road favorites.
