Kirk Cousins is so heavily favored to land with the Vikings that it's now a bad bet in Las Vegas

In other words, Vegas is betting on Cousins wearing purple and gold.

Unless you feel like risking a lot for very little, betting actual money on the Vikings to sign free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins is now a bad bet. 

Bovada, the online sports wagering site, listed new odds for Cousins and the Vikings are heavy, heavy favorites. 

  1. Vikings -230
  2. Jets +300
  3. Broncos +400
  4. Cardinals +1,500

If you're not big into gambling and the numbers above mean little to you, all you need to know is that with -230 odds, a $100 bet would pay you just over $143 if Cousins signs with Minnesota.

In short, the oddsmakers believe the Vikings are nearly 10 times more likely to sign Cousins than any other team.
