NFL Week 3 Odds

Saints Analysis
The Saints finished last season 7-9, but are hoping to get back into the playoffs this season, and upgraded their team with players like Adrian Peterson, who was released by the Vikings during the offseason.
Even though Peterson will share carries with Mark Ingram, expect the Vikings’ all-time leading rusher to get a lot of playing time against his former team as he tries to show them they made a mistake letting him go.
Drew Brees is expected to continue his assault on the record books this season, but he might have a tough time doing so against a Vikings defense that was good against the pass last year.

The Saints will be defeated by the Carolina Panthers by a score of 24-19.

Vikings Analysis
The Vikings will start the season again without quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who is still recovering from a knee injury he suffered last preseason.
Without Bridgewater, the Vikings will once again turn to Sam Bradford, who started hot but faltered late in the season.
Dalvin Cook, the Vikings replacement for Peterson will also make his regular season debut in this game and will be out to prove the team made the right choice drafting him to replace Peterson.
The Vikings defense, which was one of the best in the league in the first half of last season, is expected to be improved, but they will be facing a tough test going up against veteran Drew Brees, who can carve them up if his offensive line gives him enough time.

The Vikings defense will keep them in the game, but the Buccaneers offense will eventually be too much for them and Tampa Bay will get the win.
