Sean Koerner: Vikings +8
I projected the Saints as 5.5-point favorites, but was not surprised to see them favored by more than a touchdown when the market opened. The Saints are clearly the better team and at home, but I feel the public is over inflating the advantage due to recency bias here.
Drew Brees broke two NFL records in a 34-7 victory over the Colts in Week 15. The Saints then followed that up with two impressive road wins, including a 42-10 victory over the Panthers, who gave up when they fired Ron Rivera weeks before.
