(NFL) Minnesota vs. New Orleans, 10/02/2022 9:30 AM, Score: 28 - 25
Point Spread: 3.00 | -115.00 New Orleans (Home)
Result: Push
This is a 10* NFC GAME OF THE MONTH on the New Orleans Saints.

This game is being played at 9:30 AM EASTERN across the pond in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England.

Minnesota is 2-1 this year straight up, and 1-2 against the spread. The Vikings struggled in their lone road game, falling 24-7 at Philadelphia in Week 2 as a 2.5-point underdog.

The Vikings were unable to earn a cover over the Lions at home in Week 3, but they did come from behind to manage the 28-24 outright victory as six-point favorites. Minnesota is playing a banged up New Orleans team, but the Saints are the much "hungrier" and motivated side here in my estimation. Note that Kirk Cousins and the Vikes have lost five of their last seven on the road.

Jameis Winston had 353 passing yards, one TD and two INT's in the loss to the Panthers. The big stand out in the setback though was WR Chris Olave, who had nine catches for 147 yards. Note that Winston and the Saints have won four of their last five away from friendly confines.

New Orleans defense has been sharp and I expect it to keep the Vikings in check here. I think the Saints dig deep here and deliver a solid win and cover.

Grab the points, the play is New Orleans.

Good luck, NP
