The Vikings open as a 2.5-point favorite vs the Saints

The Minnesota Vikings open up as a 2.5-point favorite per Tipico Sportsbook over the New Orleans Saints in London Sunday morning.

Even though the Saints are considered the home team, this game is being viewed by the sportsbooks as a neutral site as both teams are relatively equidistant from London.

The Vikings are 1-2 against the spread this season with their last two games having been losses while the Saints are 0-3 with their only straight-up win coming in a last-minute drive against the Falcons.

The game will come down to who wins in the trenches. The Vikings offensive line is one of the most-improved units in the National Football League and the Saints have a great one themselves. The winner in the trenches will be the team to take home the victory in London.
