After the news broke, NFL sportsbooks boosted the Vikings to the top of the NFC North odds boards.
With +160 odds, this is surprising, as they share the division with the Green Bay Packers, the former favorite who now have +180 odds. Bettors should get a better idea of who will come out on top as both the Vikings and Packers will see each other twice in the season.
One factor that could come into play would be if there are fans even allowed at the games. Right now, it is favored (-300) that fans will not be able to be in attendance.
This could play a huge role in this matchup, as the division rivals meet during Week 1 of the season.
The Vikings were 6-1 at home in 2019 with their only loss coming to the Packers. They also lost to Green Bay when they traveled to Lambeau Field.
The Packers on the other hand were 7-1 at home and 6-2 on the road in 2019.
With a Week 1 battle in Minnesota, the Packers are looking to continue their strong away efforts.
The action is set to come quickly in the 2020 season and NFL futures bets could see a major swing early on.
Bettors should take note that the Vikings did lose to the Packers twice even before trading away Stefon Diggs. But who knows where the NFL odds will end up after the coronavirus shutdowns completely unlock.
