The Minnesota Vikings have been competitive since taking over Mike Zimmer's head coach in 2014.

However, it is also worth noting that the Vikings have failed to cover three of their last four preseason games, losing two of them to SU, and they are watching 4.5-point betting favorites in sports betting from OddsShark v Jacksonville. Last Saturday was not one of them when Minnesota outperformed the Denver Broncos 42-28 in a shootout and closed opener for both teams as a one-point street favorite in preseason.
The Jaguars dropped to the New Orleans Saints 24- 20 in their opener as a two-point home favorite, despite a solid showing from starting quarterback Blake Bortles, who completed 6-of-9 passes for 53 yards and a 2-1 Yard touchdown run had to open the gate.
Jacksonville later exposed Cornerback Jalen Ramsey and defensive end Dante Fowler for a week. Fowler was involved in an altercation with Yannick Ngakoue, while Ramsey launched a Twitter attack on the local press via the team.
Ramsey made further news earlier this week by criticizing many of the league quarterbacks in a recent GQ magazine article. However, Kirk Cousins from Minnesota was not one of them, as Ramsey praised him
Six more games are slated on Saturday's NFL preseason shale, with the home teams being preferred in all of them at sports betting. The Vikings are the biggest favorites, followed by the Broncos (0-1), who host the Chicago Bears (0-2) in a battle of victorious teams.
Denver is a three-point home favorite and needs to find out who is coming back quarterback Case Keenum. The former puck of the first round, Paxton Lynch, was a huge disappointment and was put back in the third row after the seventh choice Chad Kelly from last year. Saturday's pre-season action ends with the Los Angeles Chargers (0-1) Seattle Seahawks (0-1) as a three-point favorite. Seattle head coach Pete Carroll experienced only one defeat in the preseason in 2010, his very first year. Carroll is a 22-11 SU overall with the Seahawks, including 4-0 last preseason.
