Team Outlook and Scouting Report

2019 SEASON PROJECTION

The Vikings 2019 season may look a lot like their 2018 season. Their neutral win percentage projects over 16 games to a similar record. Their odds (25/1) implied probability of winning the Super Bowl is 3.8%. Their simulation based probability is 1.2%. Their odds (12/1) implied probability of winning the conference is 7.7%. Their simulation based probability is 3.3%.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP

The sum of all of their 2018 money line implied probabilities (adjusted for the juice) projects to 9.3 wins. Their 8 actual wins was below expectation. 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.
