Minnesota Vikings vs San Francisco 49ers Prediction
San Francisco with a rest advantage is unquestionably a startling idea, particularly at home. Nonetheless, I was truly dazzled with what I saw from the Vikings in the trump card game, as Minnesota shut down a great Saints offense for a large portion of that game while the offense mobilized and executed when they were called upon. The principal game nerves will have died down for Minnesota, and this is the first occasion when we’re going to see Jimmy Garoppolo iin a playoff atmosphere.
Last score prediction, San Francisco could win and cover, 15.8-28.8.
