Is Sunday Night Football where Dobbs comes back down to earth, or will the magical run continue? Check out our best bets for Vikings at Broncos below. Good luck with all of your wagers!
What a wild couple of weeks it has been for these Minnesota Vikings. After losing Kirk Cousins and Nick Mullens, they went out and traded for Josh Dobbs who has been anything but phenomenal in his short time. They are riding a 5-game win streak without Justin Jefferson.
They are coming off a 27-19 win over New Orleans where Dobbs threw for 268 and ran for 44 while picking up 2 touchdowns. TJ Hockenson caught 11 balls for 134 yards and a score. Will the momentum continue to be enough for this Vikings squad to continue their great play?
The Broncos are also on a win streak of their, albeit just 3 games. However, 2 of those games were against KC and Buffalo, 2 teams that no one expected the Broncos to even be in the game with let alone win outright.
Javonte Williams has been running hard and averaging over 80 yards per game recently. They forced 4 turnovers from the Bills and 5 against the Chiefs. Will that be the case here against the Vikes? If they cannot get the turnovers, will they play well enough to make up for the lack of turnovers?
We do not believe the Vikings are going to turn the ball over much in this matchup. Dobbs has yet to throw an interception since joining the Vikings and seemingly has breathed fresh air into the team.
The Broncos are dead last in the league in points allowed per game which is going to be an issue here as the Vikes promote the 3rd most passing yards per game this season. We are backing the Vikes here to cover and win the game outright.
