    The Vegas Line and AccuScore for the Vikings

    ESPN Magazine reports that the Vegas odds of the Vikings winning the Superbowl are 150-1.

    The AccuScore chance of the Vikings winning the division is 0.2%. That is two tenths of one percent.

    The AccuScore of making the playoffs is 2.1%. That is rough.

    The AccuScore is a computer program; it looks into the past rather than the future, and odds can be beat, but it does not look like great expectations are given to the Vikings at the start of the season.

    Not all that surprising to me...

    I love my Vikings, and I think we are definitely going to be improved over last year. But I also know that we are not there yet, and this is going to be a tough season.

    I still expect a 6-10 finish. If we finish 8-8 I will be ecstatic.

    The over/under for wins is 6, so you are right on what the Vegas gangsters think.

    ESPN Magazine predicts another 3-13 season

    It's very likely we lose all 6 division games, that means we would need to win 7 of the 10 others. Under.

    I think they go 2-4 in the division, beating the Lions and Bears at home. By the time they play, I expect major pieces of both of those teams to be done for the season.
