The Vikings have gotten the early play in football betting as they have risen to a four-point favorite at Cleveland in their season opener. Here is a look at this football betting matchup between the Vikings and Browns.
Bet on NFL numbers are likely to favor the Vikings a lot in 2009. Minnesota has the best running back in football in Adrian Peterson, a stout defense and a Hall of Fame quarterback in Favre. That is going to make them a popular choice with those that bet on NFL games.
While the Vikings have Favre at quarterback the Browns have either Derek Anderson or Brady Quinn. Early in the bet on NFL week, head coach Eric Mangini was not announcing his starting quarterback. If he bases his decision on bet on NFL preseason action then it should be Quinn. "In terms of announcing it publicly, that's not something I plan to do," Mangini said. "It will be internal. I understand everybody has a different opinion on it. I respect that. I understand the excitement in relationship to that and I respect that as well. But that will be something that will be internal." What Mangini hopes to gain is unclear since the offense is going to be the same.
The Vikings only decision heading into this bet on NFL game is who is going to backup Favre. Bet on NFL information indicates that Minnesota head coach Brad Childress says he will wait until Sunday to choose between Tavaris Jackson or Sage Rosenfels as the backup. "But at least you know who the starter is here," he said.
Bet on NFL stats don’t necessarily favor the Vikings in this game. The Vikings are 2-6 in football betting in their last 8 games as a road favorite. The Browns are 4-1-1 against the bet on NFL number in their last 6 games as a home underdog. The Browns are 5-2 in football betting in their last 7 games in September.
As you look to bet on NFL total action in this Sunday matchup you should be aware that the Under is 5-0-1 in the Vikings last 6 games as a road favorite. The Under is 4-1-1 in the Browns last 6 bet on NFL games overall.
