The high-powered New Orleans Saints bring their passing attack to the Metrodome this week. New Orleans is playing for a possible bye in the first round of the NFC playoffs, and they still must lock up the NFC South title over Atlanta. With the 49ers hosting the Steelers on Monday, New Orleans has a lot to play for. SB Nation's official odds partner, Oddsshark, has opened the Saints as a strong seven point favorite this week:
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).
Although the Saints have struggled to beat the spread against Minnesota, Drew Brees should have a strong day against the Minnesota secondary. Brees has thrown at least one touchdown pass in 40 consecutive games, and he is on pace to break Dan Marino's single-season passing yardage record.
