How to Bet on the Steelers vs. Vikings

In their all-time series matchups, the Steelers and the Vikings seem to be on equal standing. From the 2020 divisional rankings and the 2017 betting trends, the Steelers had the upper hand.

Bettors who have a good idea of which NFL team to bet on can choose from the following methods:

Moneyline - A simple type of bet where you stake on a team you think will win the match.

Suppose you bet on the San Francisco 49ers at +205 and they win, you will receive $205 for every $100 you stake. If you stake on the Los Angeles Rams at -225 and they win, you will get paid $100 for every $225 you stake.

Point spread - This is a bet on the gap in scores between both teams.

The example below shows how both teams can cover the spread.

If the Los Angeles Chargers are assigned a +3 spread, they have to either win the game or not lose by more than three points. If you bet on the Las Vegas Raiders with a -3 spread, they need to win by more than three points.

Over/under - This is the predicted total score of both teams. You place a bet on whether the actual combined score will be over or under the predicted number.

Suppose the O/U of the Miami Dolphins vs. Arizona Cardinals match was set at 49. If the actual combined score was 65 and you bet “over,” you win.

Win totals - You bet on the number of games won by a team. If the Kansas City Chiefs’ win totals odds were set at 10.5 and you bet “over,” the team must win 11 or more games, excluding offseason matches.

Prop bets - These are bets concerned with events that might happen in the game that do not affect the game’s final outcome. Some examples include:

  • Will the New York Jets make it to the playoffs?
  • Will the Chicago Bears quarterback and 2021 NFL draft first-round pick Justin Fields score more than three touchdowns in the game?
  • Will the New England Patriots make it to the Super Bowl?

Live or in-play betting - You can also place your bets on a game while it is ongoing, such as one that you can watch live on CBS or ESPN. As the match progresses, the odds can also change, and you can adjust your bets accordingly.
