  • Late money has driven the Vikings vs. Saints spread into uncharted territory.
  • We analyze how action from respected bettors is forcing oddsmakers to make major adjustments to this line as kickoff approaches (1:05 p.m. ET).

Betting activity for today’s Vikings vs. Saints wild-card matchup remained relatively quiet throughout the week, as the spread bounced between New Orleans -7.5 and -8 a handful of times.

At the time of writing, 64% of bettors are laying the points with the Saints, indicating that public bettors expect Kirk Cousins to once again struggle in a high-profile matchup against a quality opponent.

Until Sunday morning, sharps had yet to make their opinions known regarding this spread, but that all changed when an influx of professional money flooded the market at around 11:30 a.m. ET, forcing oddsmakers to make a major adjustment to the Vikings vs. Saints line.
