Gamblers Avoid the Minnesota Vikings for 2024 NFL Futures Market Betting

Following a 13-4 record and NFC North Division championship, the Minnesota Vikings tumbled to 7-10 with the NFL odds. Minnesota was one of the biggest disappointments in the 2023 NFL campaign. Since the end of the campaign, QB Kirk Cousins departed for the Atlanta Falcons. Now the question is who will take over as the Vikings QB. Head coach Kevin O’Connell has gone from a hero to zero in one year. Not to mention one of the hottest seats in the NFL. Thus, he can’t afford a QB mistake. Gamblers remain skeptical about the Vikings in 2024.

Could Michigan Man JJ McCarthy Fill the Void?

At the onset of training camp, there will be potential for finding a sportsbook asset or a liability as Viking QB. First-round draft pick JJ McCarthy might not be ready to take over the Vikings. The good news is that he may not have to be ready for the upcoming 2024 NFL Season.

Each quarterback going into the NFL has a unique journey and a timeline of when they are ready to take a team over. The last two quarterbacks taken in the first round by the New York Jets, Sam Darnold and Zach Wilson, saw their careers falter when they started immediately. Last year, Bryce Young and CJ Stroud didn’t have the same results as day-one starters for their respective teams. Young has to adapt to a managed Panthers team. At the same time, Stroud is a star already with the Texans.

Consider the Vikings traded up to the 10th overall pick in the 2024 NFL draft. Thus, there was serious NFL betting odds speculation that McCarthy should start in year one. Instead, it is believed that McCarthy will need more evaluation and development in his first year in the league. The Vikings are putting their full trust in Darnold, newly arrived in his first season with the team. Also, there is former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens as his backup. McCarthy is listed as the third-string quarterback behind them.

Certainly, there is optimism that Minnesota could make a serious impact in the race for the NFC North division. They are only two years removed from the title. Additionally, Minnesota signed star wide receiver Justin Jefferson to get a four-year; $140 million contract extension.

On the field, McCarthy was one of the raw quarterbacks entering the 2024 NFL draft. McCarthy was a quarterback who needed more time to develop than any other prospect. Hence, he needs time to develop and learn under head coach Kevin O’Connell, a reputed QB whisperer.
