Northbet Numbers: Minnesota Vikings are 2-8 ATS this season.
One day after Minnesota’s home loss against the divisional rival Green Bay Packers, Vikings owner Zygi Wilf fired head coach Brad Childress.
Reports had been circulating that the Vikings players were highly unsatisfied with Childress’ decisions, especially after he chose to release wide receiver Randy Moss.
Vikings owner Wilf was especially displeased with Childress for not telling him first of his plans to release Moss. There had been anonymous reports from various players that the locker room became hostile between the squad and their head coach since the incident.
Vikings quarterback Brett Favre and wideout Percy Harvin publicly voiced their disputes with their coach.
Favre’s displeasure with Childress this NFL betting online season first became public when the head coach trashed his quarterback for throwing three key interceptions in the Vikings first matchup with the Packers on October 24.
Favre responded by telling ESPN’s Ed Werder, “It’s a damn shame. What I think about is going to my press conference knowing he had taken some shots at me.”
Harvin recently mentioned he and Childress almost got physical with one another over an MRI test Harvin had scheduled on his sprained ankle. According to a Vikings team source, the second-year receiver stated, “ (that) was as close to physical as you can get.”
Wilf and the Vikings organization decided to fire Brad Childress on Monday, November 22, 2010, the following season after Childress had been given a contract extension until the year 2013.
With the return of their leading receiver Sidney Rice and the upheaval of Childress, the Vikings should feel some relief moving forward.
A playoff birth is still possible, and Brett Favre has done crazier things in his storied career. The Minnesota franchise has chosen the side of its players and NFL bettors should expect a strong end to this NFL betting online season for the Vikings.
