Minnesota Vikings vs. Seattle Seahawks NFL Betting Odds and picks

First, Minnesota finally got their initial NFL betting win of the season.  But the fact remains the Vikings are still in the ditch.  Minnesota’s metrics are hardly indicative of a playoff team.  Offseason hype about 15 picks at the 2020 NFL Draft was loud.  So too was general manager Rick Spielman’s boast about “roster evolution.”  Minnesota hasn’t reached the level of their 2017 NFC championship game loss.  Following that defeat quarterback Case Keenum was judged inadequate.   Kirk Cousins was acquired as the final piece of the puzzle.  Except it is yet to come to fruition.

Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks CashBet Wagering Analysis

On this occasion, the Seahawks are difficult for the masses to oppose with the sportsbook odds.  At the beginning is a huge quarterback advantage with Russell Wilson.  Gamblers can’t see how Kirk Cousins gives Minnesota an advantage against Wilson.  Further, the Vikings burned a lot of street cred with their 0-3 start.  A win at Houston hardly moves the public.  And then Seattle is cranking cash.

Vikings Get Off the Mat

Now Minnesota is 1-3 straight up, 2-2 against the spread, and 3-1 over the total.  The Vikings have NFL ranks of 14th for scoring offense and 26th for points allowed.  Last week the Vikings got their first win of the season 31-23 at Houston Texans.  Minnesota was 3.5-point Betting on NFL road dogs.  Also, did the game go over the total of 52.5.

To bring to light Kirk Cousins was 16 of 22 for 260 yards and a touchdown.   It was his best performance of the season.  Running back Dalvin Cook had 130 yards on 27 carries with two touchdowns.  So far this season, Cook has 424 yards with 4.7 yards per carry and six touchdowns.

Seahawks Soaring with Superman Wilson

Overall, the Seahawks are 4-0 straight up and against the spread with three games over the total.  Seattle has NFL metrics of second for scoring offense and 21st for points allowed.  On Sunday the Seahawks scored a 31-23 win at Miami as 4.5-point chalks.  Under the pro football betting total of 55 snuck through too.

To demonstrate Russell Wilson was 24 of 34 for 360 yards and two touchdowns.  While on the season he has a 136.7 passer rating, 18 touchdown passes, and just two interceptions.  Wilson is averaging 9.4 yards per pass and has completed 75% of his passes.

Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks Against the Spread

Against the football betting odds, Minnesota is 14-10-1 outside the NFC North.  They are 14-12-1 in matchups against NFC teams and 10-10 on the road.  Further, the Vikings are 5-7 in their last 12 as road dogs.  And just 5-13-1 after a win.  On the over-under board, the Vikings are 10-9 over the total after a win.  So too is Minnesota 13-12 over vs. the NFC North, 7-8 under as dogs and 10-17 under in NFC matchups.

Against the odds, the Seahawks are 17-7-3 outside the NFC West.  Seattle is 22-14-3 in all games, 15-10 after a win, and 16-11-2 against NFC opponents.  Additionally, the Seahawks are 9-8-1 at Century Link Field, 11-10-2 as chalk, and 7-7-1 as home chalk.  To be exact on totals Seattle is 5-3 over at home and 8-5 over in the NFC.  More emphatically Seattle is 6-4 over after a win, 10-7 over in their last 17 games, and 4-5 under as a favorite.

Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks CashBet Free Pick

As was previously noted Seattle has shown good NFL gambling value.  While Minnesota has been a weak road dog.  Wilson is playing at a supreme level.  Minnesota’s revamped roster is no match here.
