How to Place Bets on the Packers vs. Vikings Odds

Moneyline: This type of bet determines which team wins in a match. Odds with a minus (-) sign denote favorites, while odds with a plus (+) sign are the underdogs.

For example, the Week 8 betting lines of the Packers vs. Vikings match are as follows:

  • Green Bay Packers-274
  • Minnesota Vikings+246

The Packers have -274 odds, indicating they are the favorites. If you place a $274 stake on them, you will receive $100 if the Packers win. Alternatively, if you bet $100 on the Vikings and the team wins, you receive a $246 profit.

Point spread: A team has to win or lose against the other contender by a certain number of points in this bet.

Suppose you encounter the following betting lines:

  • Baltimore Ravens-3.5
  • Cleveland Browns+3.5

If you bet on the Ravens at -3.5 odds, the team has to win over the Browns by four points or more for your bet to win.

If you bet instead on the Browns at +3.5 odds, the team may either outright win the match or lose by only three points or fewer for your bet to win.

Over/Under: Sportsbooks often set a predetermined score representing both teams' total or combined points in a match. Bettors predict if the actual combined score of both teams will go above or below that set score.

Suppose the O/U in a Kansas City Chiefs vs. Las Vegas Raiders match is set at 56.5. If you place an “over” bet, the final combined score must be 57 points or more to win the bet.

If you choose “under” instead, the combined score must not exceed 56 points for you to win.

Prop Bets: Bettors may place bets on sporting milestones that do not necessarily affect the final outcome of a match. Some examples of prop bets include:

  • Which team will win the next game after a bye week?
  • Will the New York Jets win three games in a row in the next regular season?
  • Who will be the first-round pick in the next NFL Draft?
  • Will free agent and cornerback Holton Hill transfer to another team next year?
  • Will the Vikings’ defensive end Danielle Hunter play this season?
  • Will the Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer wear a jacket of any color other than black or purple during a match?
  • Will the Packers reach 30 points per game (PPG) next season?
  • Will Harrison Smith make five interceptions next season?
