The Minnesota Vikings joined the NFL in 1961 amid a rapid growth period for pro football. By the end of the decade the Vikes grabbed the attention of fans and bettors alike playing in the Super Bowl for the first time. Minnesota lost that game to the Kansas City Chiefs, but the “Purple People Eaters” showed that day and throughout the 70’s that they were not just some upstart but a force to be reckoned with. Despite nine NFC Central division titles between 1970 and 1980 the Vikings lost three further Super Bowl appearances.
The Vikings have returned to the NFC Championship game repeatedly since those glory days, but Minnesota football fans remain on the sidelines when it comes to the ultimate prize.

Minnesota Vikings Betting
The Minnesota Vikings were one of the dominant team in the 70’s, but ended up on the losing end in all four Super Bowl appearances they made. A move from the frigid Metropolitan Stadium to the climate controlled Metrodome in the 80’s brought further success with sporadic appearances in the NFC Championship game, but for fans of the Vikings it is still frustrating as the team remain agonizingly short of claiming the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
Even with all the championship heartbreak there is no shortage of action to jump in on as the Vikings regularly have a bitter rival on the schedule with the same grudges they’ve had for over half a century. Whatever your pick Minnesota Vikings betting lines are always LIVE here.
