NFL Week 3 Odds - Latest Betting Data

Minnesota Vikings may have started the season with back-to-back losses, but sports bettors are wagering that their Week 3 matchup against Tennessee Titans is when they will turn things around.

Across all 16 games this week, no matchup is more lop-sided in terms of the betting breakdown; OddsChecker data shows that 81% of bets placed on the moneyline market have gone in favor of the Vikings, compared to just 19% for the Titans.

This is despite the fact that the Vikings are actually underdogs, with their odds of +120 indicative of a 45.5% chance of winning.

This puts them clear of the second best backed team, which is the Indianapolis Colts; 77% of wagers have backed them to beat the New York Jets.

By comparison, the most closely contested market in Week 3 is Kansas City Chiefs at Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football. The Ravens are favorites with odds of -180 compared to the Chiefs at +170, but bettors are almost completely split with 48% of bets backing Baltimore compared to 52% for Kansas.

Oddschecker spokesperson Pete Watt: “The Vikings have lost to two good teams as opposed to folding against weak opposition, so it’s understandable that bettors have retained their faith in Minnesota.”

“However, they do need to get a win under their belt and fast, as their odds of winning the Super Bowl have already slipped to +10000, demonstrative of just a 1% implied chance.”
