Saints vs Vikings Odds Preview

If there is one team the New Orleans Saints can't seem to beat against the spread, it's their Week 15 betting foe - the Minnesota Vikings.

The Saints are 0-6 ATS in their past 6 meetings with the Vikes and the OVER has also been a steady bet when they meet (8-2-1 past 11 games). New Orleans is also just 2-9 SU in 11 games since 1980 here in Minnesota.

The Vikings have been scorched on defense at home all season long and we expect a high total here that could easily be eclipsed.


49ers vs Steelers MNF Odds

The 49ers had 10-game ATS win streak as a favorite snapped last week at Arizona. Big Ben's injured ankle will keep the oddsmakers guessing this week, watch the Week 15 line moves closely on this game.
