Vegas oddsmakers elevate Vikings to contender status

Do the Minnesota Vikings have a legitimate shot of winning the Super Bowl? Vegas oddsmakers think so.

The Minnesota Vikings are the only unbeaten team left in the NFL and the oddsmakers in Las Vegas seem to be taking notice.

According to Bovada, the Vikings now have the second-best odds of winning Super Bowl 51 at 7-to-1.

The top five according to Bovada are:

  1. New England Patriots 3-1
  2. Minnesota Vikings 7-1
  3. Seattle Seahawks 15-2
  4. Dallas Cowboys 10-1
  5. Green Bay Packers 12-1
    Pittsburgh Steelers 12-1

Other books across the industry are showing similar results for the Vikings.

As of Tuesday, the Westgate Las Vegas Super Book had the Vikings jumping from 20-to-1 odds at the start of the year all the way up to 6-to-1.

That moved them even with Seattle, only behind New England.
