NorthBet Numbers: Minnesota Vikings were 5-11 ATS this season.

What a disaster of a season the Minnesota Vikings had in 2010-11.

At the start of the year, everything looked so promising. The Vikings were coming off a 12-4 season, one that was a pass away from landing a Super Bowl berth. Head coach Brad Childress even managed to entice Brett Favre to come back for one last title run.

But things turned from good to ugly faster than a Levis commercial.

Before you knew it, Favre was throwing more interceptions than passes, and getting involved in a sex scandal.

The Vikings acquired and released wide receiver Randy Moss in the same month and head coach Brad Childress was fired midway through the season.

The Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome collapsed, and Minnesota ended the year with a 6-10 record (tied with the Detroit Lions).

So, now that the Vikings’ top wideout says that he wants out of Minnesota, can you really blame him?

Sidney Rice’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Sunday, that his client would not be re-signing with his former team – at least not before testing the free agency market.

I can’t really criticize Rice for not wanting to return with the Vikings, especially since they currently have 24-year-old Joe Webb listed as their starting quarterback.

If their biggest deep threat did choose to leave, that would spell some more trouble for the Vikings. Minnesota went 3-6 during the 9 games that Rice missed this NFL betting lines year after having hip surgery in the offseason.

Without a decent quarterback under center and a talented wideout like Rice, running back Adrian Peterson will have opposing defenses stacking eight men in the box on nearly every down.
And without any real offensive threat, I can actually imagine the Detroit Lions not finishing last in the NFC North Bet division this NFL betting lines year.
