Vikings could be first home underdog with 8-1 record since 1976

The Minnesota Vikings opened up as a two-point underdog to the Dallas Cowboys this upcoming Sunday, per Tipico Sportsbook, and that line could make history.


Vikings open up as 2 point underdogs for Week 11 vs. Cowboys

According to ESPN Stats and Info, if the Vikings remain an underdog, it would be the first time since 1976 that a home team with an 8-1 record or better would be an underdog that had its starting quarterback.

It feels like the Vikings are getting a little too much disrespect from the sportsbooks, but the Cowboys are a very good football team and will present a very tough challenge for the Vikings.

There is still time for the line to shift in the Vikings’ favor, but it would be asking a lot to see the line shift by more than two points at this point in the week.
