Super Bowl gambling handicappers have seen quarterback Brett Favre completely change the Vikings from a pretender to a legitimate contender with the Super Bowl odds. The Vikings will enter Super Bowl gambling playoff action with a record of 12-4 straight up and 9-6-1 against the spread.
The Vikings will enter playoff competition with the Super Bowl odds having lost 3 out of their last 5 games both straight up and against the spread. But Minnesota did close strong with a 44-7 blowout win over the New York Giants to clinch the number two seed in the NFC and reclaim their status as a top shelf favorite with the NFL Super Bowl odds.
Favre is the man that makes the Vikings a true Super Bowl gambling threat. The 40-year old veteran had one of his greatest seasons ever as he finished with a quarterback rating of 107.0 based on a 68.3 completion percentage and 4202 yards with a 33/7 touchdown to interception ratio.
Favre’s main Super Bowl gambling target looks to be Sidney Rice, who had 1312 yards receiving with 8 touchdowns. Adrian Peterson is another dangerous Super Bowl gambling weapon as he finished with 1389 yards rushing and 18 touchdowns. Peterson is known as a fumbler, however, which is a legitimate Super Bowl gambling concern.
The Viking defense is something of a Super Bowl gambling question mark as it finished 6th overall for total yards allowed and 10th overall for points permitted while fading down the stretch. It is a unit that is still considered to have plenty of Super Bowl gambling potential, however.
The Vikings look to be one of the most complete teams on the board for the playoffs with plenty of weapons and balance. Favre is guaranteed to not have to play any playoff games in cold weather. Minnesota is truly a threat to make it all the way to Super Sunday!
