The (13-3) Minnesota Vikings host the (12-5) New Orleans Saints for the final game of the 2017-18 NFL divisional round. Kickoff is at 4:40 on FOX. The Vikings are 5-point favorites and the over/under is set at 46.5, suggesting a 25.75-20.75 Minnesota victory.
The New England Patriots would prefer the Vikings to win because while Minnesota has one of the most well-rounded teams in the NFL, they would rather see quarterback Case Keenum in the Super Bowl instead of Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara, and Mark Ingram. That’s all the difference.
