What to Know: The Vikings were one of the most disappointing teams in the league in 2018. They made it to the NFC Championship Game in 2017 and went out and signed free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins to a huge contract. The result was the team didn’t even make the playoffs. A bounce back is needed in 2019 or there could be major changes all across the organization.
Best Players: Cousins is making big money but has to show he can produce in big spots. Wide receivers Chris Thielen and Stefon Diggs are one of the best duos in the league.
How to Bet: Last season the Vikings were a good team to bet agains since they failed to live up to their lofty expectations and that might be the case again. They are an extremely bad bet in night games where Cousins, for whatever reason, rarely plays well. The Vikings played four night games last season and went 1-3.
