Minnesota Vikings Odds 2009

The Minnesota Vikings came into Sunday's game with 7/1 to 12/1 odds of winning the 2010 Super Bowl.  After a 3-0 start to the season and Brett Favre throwing a 32 yard touchdown in the final minute to win the game against an impressive San Francisco 49ers, the Minnesota Vikings odds will surely be slashed further come Tuesday at Sportsbetting.com (the online sportsbook that was offering 12/1 odds on the Vikings).

Only 6 other teams had shorter odds than the Vikings of winning the 2010 Super Bowl heading into this week. 

Greg Lewis leaped for a 32-yard touchdown in the back of the end zone to lift Minnesota to a 27-24 victory over the stunned San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, keeping the Vikings unbeaten.

An official review upheld Lewis's unbelievable catch with 2 seconds left, sending the sellout crowd into a frenzy.

Until the end, Favre was being beaten by Shaun Hill, a former Minnesota third-stringer who threw two touchdown passes to tight end Vernon Davis. The second one was a 20-yard toss over three defenders that lifted San Francisco (2-1) to a 24-20 lead midway through the fourth quarter.

One subplot to this game, a matchup of the NFC's top two runners, disappeared quickly.

Frank Gore sprained his right ankle on San Francisco's second series and, after X-rays revealed no broken bones, didn't return. Adrian Peterson was more productive than his career-worst 3-yard performance of two years ago against the 49ers, but he again found holes in San Francisco's 3-4 defense difficult to find with Willis chasing him from side to side.

Peterson finished with 85 yards on 19 carries.

The San Francisco 49ers still managed to cover this game as a +6 ½ underdog.
