The 2018 season went much worse than expected. They won 8 games vs an expected win total of 9.3. They went 3-5 on the road and were expected to win 3.7. They won 5 at home and were expected to win 5.6. Anyone who backed the Vikings in all of their games on the money line would be down -122 units. Against the spread, they have lost -70 units risking 110 to win 100 (7-7 ATS). The Vikings are down against the spread on the road, but at home they have turned a profit. Below is a recap of all 16 regular games.

They are a below average scoring team based on points per game and below average in yards per play. They are an above average scoring defense, which make sense given their strong yards per play allowed rank.
