2010 NFC Betting Odds: Big Question Looms Over NFL Picks Favorite Minnesota Vikings: The Minnesota Vikings, with 6-1 NFL betting odds, are one of the early season NFL picks to win the NFC Championship, but they have one large question mark looming over their 2010 NFL picks season. His name is Brett Favre. Favre walked off the Super Dome field last season defeated, his last pass an interception that nullified a potential game-winning drive in the final seconds of regulation in what amounted to a heartbreaking overtime loss. Since then, he has had ankle surgery in May, Tweeted just last week about retiring, and now the Vikings are in a waiting game. Will he or won’t he?
Without the 40-year old Favre, the Minnesota Vikings are just an ordinary team among many options for your NFL picks. Favre had a renaissance year in 2009, throwing for over 4,000 yards and 33 TDs against just seven picks. If Favre returns, the offense will have a potent offense and be a dangerous team. Without him, the Vikings might not even be the best team in the NFC North.
Of course, the Vikings possess weapons other than Favre. Start with all-world running back Adrian Peterson, wide receivers Sidney Rice and Bernard Berrian and return man/receiver/runner Percy Harvin. The Vikings have a dominant offensive line and a good kicking game. On defense, the Vikings stuff the run with Pat and Kevin Williams, and then get after the quarterback with linemen Jared Allen and Ray Edwards. Chad Greenway and E. J. Henderson are solid linebackers, but the secondary could use some more ball hawks with only 11 interceptions last season.
This team, though, rides on the fate of Favre. Tavaris Jackson can only get them so far in the 2010 NFL picks season, as the team as discovered in the past, so if the Vikings want to live up to their preseason NFL odds, then they’ll need the old man to ride in and rescue them again.
