We open the international portion of the 2022-23 season with the Vikings and Saints facing off in London. Minnesota scraped by Detroit last week to get to 2-1, while New Orleans has lost two straight divisional games.
I see value on one side here, so let's break that down.

Vikings vs. Saints Pick
The Saints will be without both Jameis Winston and Michael Thomas this week. While it’s a pretty big blow to the offense, Andy Dalton is still one of the better backup QBs in the league and will still have Chris Olave, Jarvis Landry and Alvin Kamara at his disposal.
The dropoff from Winston to Dalton is about 1.5-2 points, but I would argue it could be even smaller right now considering Winston was struggling to play through small fractures in his back, throwing five interceptions over his last two games.
I think the Vikings should be slight favorites here, but I’m projecting this closer to -2.5. I can’t pass up getting the key number of 3.5 as of Saturday afternoon.
