Vikings at Saints (-7 )
The Vikings blew their chance to survive for a playoff berth recently with a loss to the Bears. Now they will face key offseason choices with guys like Danielle Hunter, Anthony Barr and Anthony Harris. The Vikings have factor to be excited about young players like Justin Jefferson, however a few of their finest veterans (Harrison Smith, Adam Thielen) are on the wrong side of 30. The Saints, on the other hand, are coming off back-to-back losses. Their defense has been among the league’s finest and will keep them in quite much every video game, however New Orleans requires the offense to find some sort of rhythm with Drew Brees prior to the playoffs.
The choice: Vikings (+7 )
Buccaneers at Lions (+9.5 )
