It’s off to London for the first time this season.
The New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings face off in the UK for the third time this coming Sunday, October 2, with both teams chalking up wins in their previous two appearances.

These two teams are coming off of very different Week 3 outcomes.
The Vikings improved to 2-1 with a 28-24 defeat of the Detroit Lions.
New Orleans fell to 1-2 after losing to the Carolina Panthers, 22-14.
Let’s have a closer look at the first game of three in the 2022/2023 NFL in London, England.
Sunday, October 2 at 9:30AM ET (2:30PM BST)
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London, England
Minnesota Vikings -147
New Orleans Saints +120
Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on the Vikings
The Vikings were able to sneak out of U.S. Bank Stadium with a win over the Detroit Lions in Week 3.
To make their victory slightly more impressive, the Vikings were able to add another win to their 2022 record on Sunday even though they didn’t have All-Pro safety Harrison Smith on the field.
Smith missed Minnesota’s Week 3 match up against the Lions due to a concussion that he suffered in Week 2 action against the Philadelphia Eagles.
It looks like the Vikings will have their top safety back on the field for their upcoming matchup in England against the New Orleans Saints.
There are alot of reasons to bet on the Vikings in this game. Not the least of which is the inconsistency of the New Orleans Saints and the unpredictability of Jameis Winston at the helm.
Why Bet on the Saints
New Orleans has been out of sorts offensively and is dealing with potentially big injuries with …
New Orleans has a decent defense, but the playmakers on the other side are difficult to ignore.
Pair that with the inconsistency of the Saints offense and it’s inability to control gameplay, it’s tough to come up with reasons at this point in the season to bet on the Saints in this Conference rivallry game.
Vikes defense is trash. There are pieces in place but our new D coordinator put in a new 3-4 and is trying to fit a bunch of square pegs into round holes. Our run defense is garbage and our coverage schemes are simplistic and predictable enough that Jared Goff, a.k.a Mr. “I need the coverage told to me by the OC” was able to pick it apart. The Saints will have no problems scoring points on Sunday.
If Jameis Winston can throw fewer interception worthy bombs down field and the Saints D can shut down Kirk Cousins and the Vikings offense then look for a Saints underdog win.
Free Vikings vs Saints Free Pick
This is going to be a great matchup between Minnesota’s offense and New Orleans’ defense.
The Saints have a chance to contain the Vikings receivers, and Dalvin Cook’s injury is a real concern.
On the other hand, New Orleans has been unstable at best offensively and is dealing with potentially big injuries on that side.
At the end of this rivallry match up, look for the Vikings to grab the win straight up. The Saints have been slow out of the gates and inconsistent in the first 3 weeks of this NFL season, look for more of the same this Sunday.
Take the Vikings to win and cover.
