Odds from Betonline.ag 

The Vikings have to get a win in this game to get some momentum going. The Broncos are not that good of a team overall, but to make it even worse the offense for the Broncos is not producing again. When you look at the Broncos defense it is horrible and is coming off of a game that gave up over 500 yards of offense and that is going to lead to the Vikings getting the win in this game here and cover, but the Vikings offense I do not think is strong enough to bring the total close.
