Sunday, January 5th – 1:05pm EST
The New Orleans Saints will get an opportunity to redeem themselves from the Minneapolis Miracle that occurred 2 years ago in the 2017 NFC Divisional Round. The Saints were primed to advance to the NFC Championship Game before the Stefon Diggs miraculous catch and run to eliminate the Saints. Despite that step back, the Saints had another opportunity to advance to the Super Bowl last season, before the Non-Pass Interference call that changed the league forever. This weekend, the Saints will attempt to put all of these heartbreaks behind them and focus on beating the Vikings. I think they do just that on Sunday. New Orleans is favored to win by 8 points at this point in time. I do not feel nearly as comfortable with that spread as I do the straight up pick. With this game I am leaning on the Saints winning, the Vikings sticking within 8 points, and a lower scoring game that stays below 49 points.
Straight Up Pick: New Orleans Saints
Against the Spread: Minnesota Vikings +8
Over/Under: UNDER 49
