NFL Week 16 Best Bets: Vikings vs. Saints Odds, Picks and Analysis

Minnesota Vikings vs. New Orleans Saints NFL Week 16 betting Odds and Picks

New Orleans has resembled a sandwich this season.  A sluggish start and recent slump with a great stretch in between.  Last week Drew Brees returned from injury.  And was showing a lot of rust in a home loss to Kansas City.  This week the Saints will face the wildly inconsistent Vikings.  New Orleans needs a win to stay ahead of the Buccaneers.  Consider the Saints’ one-game lead in the NFC South.  New Orleans will be seeking revenge for a playoff loss to Minnesota last year.  Despite their loss to KC, the Saints remain a Super Bowl best bet.
