When these odds initially were released, I posted a tweet about how Dan Campbell at 20/1 was worth consideration. He was the co-favorite at other places, and his odds have since moved to 17/1 to illustrate bettors’ belief in the Lions.
But as I wrote during my NFC North win totals preview, I don’t fully understand the hype around the Lions. Detroit had the worst-ranked defensive grade via Pro Football Focus last year, and led the league in percentage of total points scored after the game was essentially over.
Staying in the NFC North, the best bet is actually Minnesota’s Kevin O’Connell at a price of +1800 to win the award. O’Connell, who was previously an offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams, replaced Mike Zimmer at the helm to lead a Minnesota team that went 8-9 a year ago.
The Vikings have a solid win total of nine victories, with the over actually juiced. So there are decent expectations for this team in a weak division and even weaker conference, meaning O’Connell should be in consideration as long as the Vikings make the playoffs.
And there is reason to believe that this new coach can bring the best out of this offense. Quarterback Kirk Cousins, who has produced all four years in Minnesota, previously worked with O’Connell when the tandem were in Washington as quarterback and QB coach.
Look for this duo to deliver right away in their reunion this season, as the Vikings will be in the playoff picture once again.
