    REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

They went over 9 times and came in under 7 times. Based on computer simulations they only have a 45% chance to beat the Vikings in their next game. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).
