While Cook’s totals are down in comparison to his 2020 numbers, they’re still among the league’s best. The most interesting part about the Minnesota Vikings odds is that while their best player’s number a are projected to regress, the team is expected to see more success, at least according to sports betting sites.

  • Over 9 -130
  • Under 9 -105

Minnesota Vikings To Make Playoffs

  • Yes EVEN
  • No -120

The team is given a near 50/50 chance to make the playoffs, but the odds slightly favor no playoff appearance largely in part to the return of Aaron Rodgers to the Green Bay Packers.

At one point prior to Rodgers’ recommitment to the team, the Vikings were -120 favorites to win the NFC North and -115 to make the playoffs.

NFC North Division Odds

  • Green Bay Packers -145
  • Minnesota Vikings +250
  • Chicago Bears +450
  • Detroit Lions +2000

One would think that if Cook can have another monster season then the Vikings would be able to do well, but the results from last season and the odds for the upcoming year seem to contradict that thought. Minnesota will be one of the more intriguing teams in the league and will be worth keeping an eye on.
