To kick off Week 16, we will be seeing a RARE Friday NFL game in the Minnesota Vikings traveling to the Superdome to take on the New Orleans Saints. This is most likely the only season in NFL history where there has been a game every single day of the week. The Saints have already clinched their playoff berth, but with a win, they can clinch the NFC South, while the Vikings would have to win the next two games and have the Cardinals lose their last two games in order to make the playoffs. The Saints will be led by their mainstay QB Drew Brees [O/U 1.5 Passing Touchdowns], who came back last week after missing significant time due to an injury. Brees played a great game and threw for 3 touchdown passes while hitting the over on his player prop betting line. The Vikings will be led by Kirk Cousins [O/U 253.3 Passing Yards.] Although the Vikings lost to the Bears last week, Cousins played a great game throwing for 271 yards and hitting the over on his player prop betting line. These two teams are entering this matchup in very different but really need the same result, in a win.
The home-team Saints have a high-powered offense led by RB Alvin Kamara [O/U 0.5 Rushing Touchdowns] who is a true dual-threat. Kamara has been playing great as of late, hitting the over on his player prop betting line in 2 of the last 3 games. Joining Kamara in this Saints backfield is RB Latavius Murray [O/U 43.5 Rushing Yards.] Murray has to step-up his play as he has hit the under on his player prop betting line in each of the last three games. With Michael Thomas out, the Saints receiving core will be led by wideout Emmanuel Sanders [O/U 61.5 Receiving Yards], who had a good game last week against Kansas City where he caught 4 receptions for 76 yards, hitting the over on his player prop betting line. Closing out this Saints offense is TE Jared Cook [O/U 3.5 Receptions], Cook similar to Murray has to step-up his play. Jared Cook has hit the under on his player prop betting line in each of the last 7 games he has played in. If the Saints want to win tomorrow, their receivers have to help their ageing quarterback.
The Vikings have one of the top RBs in the league in Dalvin Cook [O/U 0.5 Rushing Touchdowns], who has hit the over on his player prop betting line each of the last two games. The Vikings have a great receiving core led by Adam Thielen [O/U 63.5 Receiving Yards] who has hit the over on his player prop betting line in 5 games this season. Joining Thielen has been arguably the top rookie in the league in Justin Jefferson [O/U 5.5 Receptions] who has hit the over on his player prop betting line 3 of the last 4 games. The Vikings NEED to win tonight if they would like to stay alive this season.
