Vikings Jets Betting – Favre Aims To Get Vikings Rolling Against Former Team

When the New York Jets signed quarterback Brett Favre to a one-year deal a couple of seasons ago, the intention was to allow the veteran signal-caller to take their franchise back to the Super Bowl. While everyone knows that the move didn’t pan out the way they had hoped, it is noteworthy to remind football betting fans that Favre’s struggles led to the Jets making major changes, which opened the way for New York to acquire Mark Sanchez. While that move sparked the Jets’ run to last year’s AFC Championship game, and aspirations for the Super Bowl this year, it had a similar effect on another franchise.

The Minnesota Vikings were Favre’s next destination, and his signing helped bring a potential playoff contender in to the realm of Super Bowl contender. Minnesota’s magical 2009-10 run fell one game short, with the Vikings losing to the eventual Super Bowl champions New Orleans Saints. Now, back for one more year, Favre continues his quest for that elusive second ring against Sanchez and the Jets this upcoming Monday night, in the Big Apple.

Why To Bet On The Vikings?

Despite opening the season with consecutive losses to the New Orleans Saints and Miami Dolphins, Minnesota still ranks fifth in rushing yards, and is only two games back of the NFC North division lead behind the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears. Quarterback Brett Favre appears to be getting more comfortable with every start following offseason surgery, and has truly played better than his numbers would indicate at this point. Running back Adrian Peterson has regained his explosiveness with a 5.6 yards per rush average, and as long as his legs continue churning out big plays, it will open things up for the passing game. The Vikings are coming off of a bye week, and hungry to silence the critics. With that vaunted front-four shutting down the Jets’ running game, it will be on Sanchez.

Why To Bet On The Jets?

The Jets understand what it is like playing an amazing rush defense, especially considering the offense does it every day in practice. New York will need to go to the air to test the Vikings’ pass defense, and it will be on Sanchez to prove that he can be the guy. Head coach Rex Ryan will not be afraid to knock Favre down on his rear, and it can be expected that the Jets bring a wide arrangement of blitzes and pressure schemes. Whether Peterson will be able to find any room against this Jets’ front-seven is a big question mark.

How The Game Will Play Out

Minnesota is eager to put its tough start behind it, understanding that the window in the deep NFC North is very small. The Jets will be coming off a couple of tough games, and may be primed for a down week.
