In the NFC Wildcard game this Sunday we have Vikings Vs Saints. The New Orleans Saints will be going for their fourth consecutive win when they take on the Minnesota Vikings in the Wildcard round of the NFC playoffs. The game will be played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday, January 5. It is scheduled to begin at 1:05 PM. ET.
The Vikings were unable to win the NFC North thanks to the Green Bay Packers, who finished with the second overall seed in the NFC. Now, they will hit the road to take on the Saints, who won 13 games during the regular season.
Minnesota won 10 games this season, but only one of their wins came against a team with a winning record. Kirk Cousins played well this season, throwing for 3,603 yards, 26 touchdowns, and six interceptions.
However, the key to their success in this game is Dalvin Cook, who rushed for 1,135 yards and 13 touchdowns. He missed the team’s last two games but is expected to return against the Saints. You can bet on NFL playoffs 2020 including the NFC Wildcard game at these sites.
Minnesota will also need to play well defensively and find a way to keep Alvin Kamara in check if they want to get the win.
Odds for Vikings Vs Saints Bet on NFL Playoffs 2020
The Saints had been hoping to get an extra week off, but their loss to the San Francisco 49ers cost them a chance to earn one of the top two seeds in the NFC Wildcard. They have been playing well offensively, averaging 40 points per game in their last four games and will be tough to slow down on Sunday. Also, updated Vikings Vs Saints betting lines have posted above.
Michael Thomas has been Drew Brees’ best weapon this season, finishing with 149 receptions for 1,725 and nine touchdowns. With the Vikings struggling against the pass, expect to see Brees target Thomas often in this game.
The Saints have been inconsistent on the defensive end, which has been their biggest weakness this season. They will have their hands full with Cook, but if they can shut him down and force Cousins to beat them with his arm, they will give themselves a good chance to get the win.
For Vikings Vs Saints, New Orleans is favored to win this game by eight points. The over/under on total points scored is 48.5.
The Vikings are a dangerous team, especially if they run the ball effectively. However, Cousins has a history of shrinking in big games and it doesn’t get any bigger than the playoffs, making the Saints the best bet. Take the Saints -8 and the over.
