The Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints will hop across the pond for a Week 4 matchup that's set to take place in in London, England at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

This will be the first of three games that will take place in London this season. The New York Giants and Green Bay Packers will face-off at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in Week 5, and then the Denver Broncos and Jacksonville Jaguars will play each other at Wembley Stadium in Week 8.

Let's take a look at the odds this weekend's NFC showdown in London, and then I'll give you my best bet.

Vikings vs. Saints Prediction and Pick

I love the Vikings in this spot. Their stock took a bit of a hit the last two weeks, after losing to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2 and then narrowly escaping with a come-from-behind victory in Week 3 against the Detroit Lions. We should continue to buy low on this team, especially against a team like the Saints, that can't match them offensively.

The Saints are averaging only 17 points per game this season, and Jameis Winston has struggled through the first three weeks. New Orleans ranks dead last in giveaways per game, coughing up the ball an average of 3.0 times per game. It's hard to win games while turning the ball over that often.

Expect Dalvin Cook to find success against this Saints defense as well. He's averaging 4.7 yards per carry this season, and now he gets to face a New Orleans defense that's allowing 4.2 yards per rush, which ranks 14th in the NFL.

I think the Vikings handle the Saints in London on Sunday morning.
