A clear difference can be seen in regards to the Vikings compared to the 2018 season. One year ago, Minnesota proved to be one of the biggest NFL betting Overlays on the board. Quarterback Kirk Cousins arrived as the “Final Piece” but underwhelmed. However, this year the Vikings and Cousins have shown marked improvement. Minnesota is tied with Green Bay for the NFC North lead and showing good balance. Seattle backed up the truck for quarterback Russell Wilson last spring. Specifically, it was one of the biggest contracts in pro football history. So far it looks like a wise investment.
