The Divisional Round kicks off with a showdown between the NFC’s 6- and 1-seeded teams: The Minnesota Vikings and San Francisco 49ers.
It’s no surprise that the 49ers are getting a slight majority of support from the public, but considering the Vikings’ upset win against the Saints on Wild Card Weekend, is this 7-point spread too high?

Vikings-49ers Injury Report
Which team is healthier? 49ers
The 49ers are in decent shape heading into this game. Only DL Dee Ford (quad/hamstring) was listed as questionable. He did manage limited practices all week, so he appears on track to play considering he didn’t practice at all leading up to their Week 17 game.
The Vikings have ruled out CB Mackensie Alexander (knee), but the big story is WR Adam Thielen, who had to get stitches after a cut on his ankle during Wednesday’s practice. He’s listed as questionable, but Thielen sounds optimistic that he’ll play. — Justin Bailey
