The Denver Broncos are slight underdogs on the road against the 2-9 Minnesota Vikings. It seems like the odds makers want (Tim) Tebow Time to come through again.
The Denver Broncos visit the Minnesota Vikings with a four-game winning streak in hand and a definite shot at the playoffs. However, the odds makers aren't buying the Broncos as favorites in this early Sunday matchup. The 2-9 Vikings opened as one point favorites at home, according to Odds Shark. The line has barely moved, though at least one odds maker has the game as a push. The Vikings are being given a very generous leap of faith in this game.
The Vikings might be without running back Adrian Peterson, who missed last Sunday's game with an ankle injury. That could turn the game in favor of the Broncos. But don't expect a ton of offensive in this game. The over/under opened and has remained at 37.5 points. The Broncos' defense has allowed 15 or fewer points in four of the team's last six games while the Vikings' offense has struggled to average just under 20 points per game.
