Vikings Week 1 Opponent for 2023 Season

The Minnesota Vikings' Week 1 matchup for the 2023 campaign takes place at home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Last season, they opened with a home game against the rival Green Bay Packers. The Vikings shocked the world by dominating the Packers, beginning the campaign with a 23-7 win.

Vikings' 2023 Strength of Schedule

According to Sharp Football Analysis, the Vikings have the ninth-hardest schedule in the NFL for the 2023-24 campaign. This is based on the projected win totals of Minnesota's opponents for the upcoming season. The Vikings will face a tall task given their upcoming slate, as just two teams (Chiefs, Bengals) made the playoffs last year with a top-10 schedule in terms of difficulty.

The Vikings' 2023-24 opponents went a combined 123-114-0 last season. They'll face a quartet of teams in the Philadelphia Eagles, Kansas City Chiefs, Cincinnati Bengals, and San Francisco 49ers that won at least 12 games during the 2022-23 campaign.

Vikings Win Total Prediction and Super Bowl Odds for 2023 Season



Win the NFC North


Win the NFC


Win the Super Bowl


FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds currently list the Vikings at 8.5 wins, with -110 on the over and -110 on the under. Minnesota has won nine-plus games three times over the past six seasons, most recently accomplishing the feat with a 13-win campaign in 2022.

The Vikings were worse than their 2022 record implied. Their 13-win performance made some people forget that they had a bottom-five defense. On top of that, the offense is up in the air heading into the new campaign. Kirk Cousins is getting older, Dalvin Cook is a potential trade candidate, and Adam Thielen left in free agency, leaving Justin Jefferson and the unproven Jordan Addison as the only real playmakers.

The Vikings are due to regress this fall, meanung a nine-win season might be asking for too much.

Bet – Vikings: Under 8.5 Wins (-110)

In the Super Bowl market, the Vikings currently are tied (with the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks) for the 15th-best odds at +4000. Those odds are only ahead of the Chicago Bears (+6000) as far as NFC North teams go.
