Those who have fallen the farthest from the opening odds?
The Bears and Chargers both started at 12/1. The Bears are now 200/1 and the Chargers are 300/1. The Steelers started at 14/1 and are now 100/1. The Eagles and Colts started at 20/1 and are now 60/1. The 49er’s started at 40/1 and are now 8/1. The Vikings and Packers both started at 16/1.
The contenders have clearly separated themselves from the pretenders with 5 games left. The Vikings have 2 road games left, at Seattle and at the Chargers. They have all 3 home division games remaining on the schedule. At 8-3 double digit wins are possible. It appears injuries are the biggest concern, with bad weather not likely to be a factor.
Even though it’s hard to do, think positive Viking fans, anything is possible.
