When the Minnesota Vikings host the New Orleans Saints on Sunday night, it'll be much more than the rematch of one of the best games in NFL playoff history. It's also the game with the biggest line movement of the week, where the Vikings started as the favorite on most sportsbooks but are now 1-point underdogs as we head into the weekend.
On FanDuel Sportsbook, the game opened as pick'em. Bettors have clearly come out in swarms betting on the Vikings at home, which is what has caused the move. And it makes sense -- home underdogs will always draw a ton of interest, especially a team as good as the Vikings who have a solid track record at home.
Last year's playoff game ended with wide receiver Stefon Diggs taking an improbable pass from then-Vikings quarterback Case Keenum to the house with no time remaining.
Whatever the case is, Sunday night sets up to be another epic game between the Saints and Vikings. The Saints come in winners of five-straight games, while the Vikings have turned their season around by winning three straight.
They say sequels are never better than the original, but these two teams will do their best to live up to the billing.
