The Minnesota Vikings are 10-point favorites for their Week 8 matchup with the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, according to MyBookie. Straight up, Minnesota is a -460 favorite while Cleveland is a +335 underdog.
Sunday’s showdown from London will feature two teams heading in opposite directions. The Vikings are winners of three straight and currently own the No. 2 seed in the NFC, just one game behind the Philadelphia Eagles. Minnesota’s defense ranks in the top five in the NFL in several categories, as it has the past few years under Mike Zimmer. Offensively, the Vikings have adequately survived despite injuries to their starting quarterback, running back and wide receiver.
Cleveland enters Sunday with an 0-7 record, joining the San Francisco 49ers as the only winless teams in the NFL this season. The Browns have cycled through three quarterbacks this season — rookie DeShone Kizer, Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan. The team announced this week that Kizer will get the start in London against arguably Cleveland’s toughest defensive test of the season. Additionally, the Browns will be without All-Pro left tackle Joe Thomas for the first time since 2006.
