Week 3 NFL Betting Odds ]]> include($base_url . “/includes/header.htm”); ?>
After two disappointing losses to kick off the 2010 NFL season, Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings will look to turn things around against the Detroit Lions. Luckily for Minnesota, the Lions are the Lions and the opportunity is there for head coach Brad Childress to finally turn things around.
Last week Favre threw three interceptions and fumbled once, all of which the Miami Dolphins made them pay for. Despite leading the game in both rushing and passing yards, the Vikings succumbed 14-10 in a narrow, yet painful loss. In Week 1 the club fell to the reigning champion New Orleans Saints.
With 25/1 odds of winning the Super Bowl, Minnesota will have to act fast to turn this ship around. Though runningback Adrian Peterson nearly gave the Vikings a much needed win last weekend, a Week 3 battle with the Lions couldn’t have come at a better time.
At 0-2 themselves, the Lions have 250/1 odds of winning the Super Bowl according to Bodog Sportsbook, but managed to hold the Philadelphia Eagles surprisingly close in Week 2.
When Favre finally gets around to shaking off his rust, the Vikings could start trying to reassemble a playoff season, although sharing a division with the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers certainly doesn’t help.
Is this lousy beginning just karmic retribution for Brett Favre’s shenanigans over the course of the past half decade? Or can Minnesota show they could potentially make noise in the 2010 post-season.
The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers will square off in the Monday night game this week, each looking to continue their undefeated seasons. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are the current favorites with 13/2 odds of winning the Super Bowl. The Chicago Bears come in at 35/1.
