The Minnesota Vikings have seen this situation once before this season.
One of the NFL's worst teams is coming into their house with a double-digit point spread. When the Buffalo Bills came into Minnesota in Week 3, they had a +17.5-point cushion. But the Bills never even needed a one-point cushion that Sunday as they demolished the Vikings by a score of 27-6.
All of this revisionist history is not scaring bettors away from the Vikings in Week 6 though. Minnesota is currently receiving the highest number of tickets placed on one team for any game this Sunday, with 72 percent of tickets.
You would think that bettors would remember such a similar setup from a mere three weeks ago, especially against an Arizona Cardinals team that's looked much improved under rookie quarterback Josh Rosen.
We'll see if the bettors are right, or if they're wrong and we get a repeat of the Week 3 debacle against the Bills.
