There is only one game with a lower O/U than this one in the first week of preseason action. Minnesota’s defense is still learning a new scheme under Brian Flores and is going up against a Seattle system that has gone largely unchanged for more than a decade, the Seahawks could easily turn one of the projected 3 field goals into a touchdown. If that’s the case, the Vikings don’t need to accomplish much to hit the Over.
Some prized offensive playmaking rookies for both teams — WR Jordan Addison for the Vikings and WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba and RB Zach Charbonnet for the Seahawks — are expected to have a play or two designed to hit a home run. If one of them hits, the Over just gets that much easier to attain.
