Vikings Super Bowl Odds Right Back Where They Started (Before Teddy Got Hurt)
The Minnesota Vikings started the offseason with 20-1 odds to win the Super Bowl in 2017, then Teddy Bridgewater got hurt and those odds dropped. Now, with the signing of Sam Bradford, those odds are back up to 20-1.
As for Sam Bradford's former team the Philadelphia Eagles -- their preseason Super Bowl odds started out at 40-1, and dropped to 60-1 during the preseason. After the Eagles sent Bradford to Minnesota, their odds have fallen to 100-1 (third worst in the NFL).
Now that doesn't necessarily mean that Vegas thinks that Bradford is just as good for the Vikes as Bridgewater; it just means that they think the Vikings have as good a chance to win the Super Bowl as they did when the preseason odds were first released.
The Patriots are the favorites with 6-1 odds, followed by the Seahawks, Cardinals, and Packers at 8-1.
Speaking of odds, the Vikings are 2-point favorites in Sunday's season opener in Tennessee against the Titans.
