Minnesota Vikings 2011 Season Win Total Outlook & Projection:

2011 Minnesota Vikings Las Vegas Season Win Total Line;
Oddsmakers currently have the regular season win total betting line for the Minnesota Vikings set at 7 wins... This number represents an increase of 1 win from the Vikings' prior year regular season mark of (6-10).

Part of this increase has to do with the fact the Vikings signed QB Donovan McNabb. However, the Vikings do play in the tough NFC North and have one of the stiffer '11 schedules on paper, thanks in part to division rivals; Green Bay (Super Bowl champs), postseason squad Chicago, and perennial cellar dwellar Detroit now on the rise.

Furthermore, the Vikings are undergoing a transition on the defensive line. And it remains to be seen whether their defensive front will be able to perform at levels relied upon in the past.

Schedule Analysis:
In 2011 the Vikings will play a heaping 7 games versus teams that made the playoffs a season ago. This is a reduction of 1 such game as played in the previous season, but still represents a high number of contests.

That's quite the near half season schedule above. Especially when you throw in playoff bubble team, 10 game winner Tampa Bay in week 2.

Other potentially competitive matchups in '11 include; @San Diego in week 1, the aforementioned contest versus Tampa Bay in week 2, Detroit in week 3, @Detroit in week 14, and @Washington in week 16.

Lighter competition includes; Arizona in week 5, @Carolina in week 8, Oakland in week 11, and Denver in week 13.

Overall, roughly 75% of Minnesota's contests are games in which a loss would not be an astonishing result.

Record Projection:
In 2011 we project the Vikings to go (8-8), topping the Vegas season win total of 7 games. We see the Vikings as a bit of a "wild card." They are a team that could potentially win on any day against most teams, thanks to players like Adian Peterson, Percy Harvin, Donovan McNabb and Jared Allen... But their schedule is so brutal that it surely seems a long shot to project a playoff appearance. That said, if the Vikings made the playoffs this season, we wouldn't be completely shocked.
