Vikings vs. Saints odds and point spread

 Football fans will close the NFL Week 5 with the Monday night football game Minnesota Vikings vs. New Orleans Saints and we will look at the latest odds and point spread on this match-up. Both the Minnesota Vikings (1-3) and the New Orleans Saints (2-2) will enter the game with some questionable players and the odds makers and bettors are yet to give one of the NFL teams a large edge over the other.

 Looking at the latest odds posted by the online sportsbook BodogLife, the odds on this Monday night football game are currently in favor of the New Orleans Saints at just -160, while the visiting Vikings will come out on the field as underdog with odds +140. The Minnesota Vikings vs. New Orleans Saints point spread is at -3.5 points chalk the Saints with the total at 46.5 points, a high volume largely expected thanks to Saints No.3 ranked overall offense. Keep in mind that betting trends show Minnesota is 2-5 against the spread in its last 7 games on the road, but New Orleans is 1-4 against the spread in its last 5 games when playing the Vikings.

 Minnesota's safety Madieu Williams is out for the Week 5 game and linebacker E.J. Henderson was listed as doubtful. Questionable for the Vikings remain wide receivers Bernard Berrian and Sidney Rice, tight end Jim Kleinsasser, and cornerback Benny Sapp, while linebacker Vinny Ciurciu and defensive end Ray Edwards were upgraded to probable. But the New Orleans Saints seem to be doing even worse physically, with five players out of NFL Week 5 football - wide receivers Marques Colston and David Patten, defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis, cornerback Aaron Glenn, and tight end Jeremy Shockey will all miss the Monday night football game due to injuries. Saints running backs Mike Karney, Olaniyi Sobomehin and Aaron Stecker were upgraded to probable, and so did wide receiver Terrance Copper, tight end Mark Campbell and linebacker Troy Evans.
