Saints vs Vikings Betting Picks – NFL Betting Predictions

The NFL goes to London for the first time this season with the Saints vs Vikings game. According to bookie pay per head reports, the New Orleans Saints are the underdogs.

New Orleans had 24 points in their two previous games. Also, both games were losses. The only bright spot in the season is their win against the Atlanta Falcons in the first week of the NFL season. However, they did not cover the spread as the 5.5-point favorite in the game.

Saints vs Vikings Betting Picks – NFL Betting PredictionsSince this line was posted, Minnesota has gone from a slight underdog to a 2.5-point favorite. Jameis Winston, the team’s starting quarterback, has thrown just two touchdowns and five interceptions in the last two games, but head coach Dennis Allen has elected to keep him in the lineup.

The Vikings beat the Lions 28-24 last week after falling by scores of 14-0 and 24-14. Despite being a 6.5-point home favorite, they lost after failing to cover the spread. The number of infractions has dropped from 46.5 to 44 because of the everyday problems caused by travel and time adjustment.

Pay per head reviews and news sites reported the Vikings were fortunate to avoid a loss to the Lions last week, especially considering the status of running back Dalvin Cook’s injured shoulder.

While the Vikings’ starting quarterback situation remains unclear without Cook, they have a capable backup in Alexander Mattison and several talented receivers.

According to football news reports, Kirk Cousins connected with Adam Thielen and K.J. Osborn for 11 receptions, 134 yards, and two scores. All game long, Jefferson was smothered by two defenders.

The depth on the Vikings’ roster should help them, but their recent struggles on the road (1-4 SU and ATS) are cause for concern.
