New Orleans Saints
The Saints march into this Week 8 matchup sporting a 5-1 record that pegs them as the best team in the NFC South. Although they’re in first, the Saints will want to maintain their winning ways in order to lock up one of the toughest divisions in pro football. Last season 3 NFC South teams made the playoffs and as of right now the 4-2 Carolina Panthers are certainly giving New Orleans a run for their money. So what kind of chance do the Saints have of taking down the Vikings on the road? Judging by the odds, it’s not easy to peg either side as an NFL football betting favorite. However, when sizing both sides up, you have to feel more comfortable taking the team with Brees at the helm. After all, Brees has yet to throw a pick this season. Granted the Vikings defense is much better than the Saints, but that didn’t help the Vikings out much in their matchup against the Rams a few weeks ago.
Players to Watch: Drew Brees (1,870 passing yards, 13 TD, 0 INT), Alvin Kamara (363 rushing yards, 6 TD, 0 F), and Michael Thomas (588 receiving yards, 4 TD, 53 REC).
The Vikings charge into this weekend’s matchup sporting a 4-2-1 record that pegs them as the best team in the NFC North. The Vikes recently suffered a hiccup caused by a 27-6 loss to the Bills that was followed by a 38-31 loss to the Rams. Nevertheless, Minnesota was able to bounce back big time the following week by taking care of Philadelphia on the road 23-21. That matchup gave Minnesota enough momentum to pick off the Cardinals and the Jets in their last two matchups. However, the Saints are a different animal than all of those three. In fact, New Orleans best compares to Los Angeles and their high powered offense. Seeing as how the Vikings are scoring 25.3 per game, will they be able to keep up with Brees’ onslaught this weekend?
Players to Watch: Kirk Cousins (2,162 passing yards, 14 TD, 3 INT), Latavius Murray (330 rushing yards, 3 TD, 0 F), and Adam Thielen (822 receiving yards, 5 TD, 0 F).
