The Minnesota Vikings kept their playoff hopes alive with a Monday Night Football win against the Chicago Bears in Week 15. Minnesota currently owns the final Wild Card spot in the NFC with a tough three-game stretch to close out the year,

Following the victory, the Vikings' odds to make the postseason on FanDuel Sportsbook have improved.

Vikings Playoff Odds

Minnesota was clearly favored to miss the playoffs at -270 odds entering Week 15. After their Monday night win, they're -230 to miss the postseason. Though they're still favored to fall short of a playoff spot, their +184 odds to make the postseason show that the gap is narrowing.

The Vikings will face off with the Bears again in Week 18, but they'll at least need to split games against the Los Angeles Rams and Green Bay Packers prior to that in order to have a chance at the playoffs.

Minnesota heads into its Week 16 clash with the Rams as 3-point underdogs. They'll have a chance to sweep the season series against Green Bay at Lambeau Field in Week 17 before finishing their season at home against the Bears.
