The first week of preseason football can be ugly, but you know what—it’s football that we’ve been missing out on for far too long. Even if you just tune in during the first quarter to see what the healthy starters can do, it’s time to bust out wings, adult beverages and lucky jerseys for the new year.
The Minnesota Vikings and Denver Broncos will kick off at 9 p.m. ET in Denver on Thursday, Aug. 9.
The Minnesota Vikings were a popular pick last season to win a Super Bowl largely because fans of the game at larger wanted to see a team win a title on its own home field.
This year, the Vikes will once again be top-tier Super Bowl picks, but in a more legitimate way that some began to see late last season despite the novelty of potentially playing a championship game under their own roof.
Entering Week 1 of the preseason, Minnesota sits at 10/1 to win a Lombardi Trophy behind only the New England Patriots. The Vikings share those odds with the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Denver is once again expected to have a strong defense that sets themselves up for big-time success. But the wild card here is going to be in the backfield.
Denver isn’t going to shy away from a running back by committee approach, but keep a close eye on rookie Royce Freeman who could eventually take over as the starting tailback with his speed/size combo.
Entering the year, the Broncos sit at 33/1 odds to win a Super Bowl, which puts them right in the middle of the league.
4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Minnesota +1
Both of these teams are going to use Week 1 of the preseason to get their new quarterbacks and new coordinators on the same page. As we mentioned earlier, there is plenty of potential for sloppy football.
There’s also a good possibility of an upset.
Give this one to the Vikings by a touchdown.
