Vikings vs 49ers LivE
The Divisional round of the 2020 NFL Playoffs begins on Saturday with the Minnesota Vikings, the No. 6 seed in the NFC, going head-to-head with the top-seeded San Francisco 49ers at 4:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
The Vikings improbably made it out of Wild Card weekend with an overtime victory against the New Orleans Saints, but now must tackle another tough challenge on the road in San Francisco. Minnesota was the largest underdog on the board last weekend and isn’t a stranger to pulling off an upset, but it certainly won’t come easy against a well-rested, motivated Niners squad returning to the postseason after a six-year hiatus.
Oddsmakers don’t like Minnesota’s chances to reach the NFC Championship Game, opening them as seven-point ‘dogs in this 2020 NFL Playoff contest. That line hasn’t moved since first going up on the board and has been drawing an exactly even split of public action for both bets and cash wagered against the spread. The total—which started at 46.5 points—has shifted, however, dropping down to 44.5 points over the last few days. The sharp bettors are responsible for this adjustment, as 59% of the public tickets are on the over. The larger wagers like the under though, evidenced by 56% of the money coming in on that side of the line.
Will the 49ers come through with a rare win over the Vikings—they’ve beaten them just once in their last five tries—to reach the conference championship for the first time in six years, or will Minnesota improbably secure upset on the road during the 2020 NFL Playoffs by going into San Francisco and handling business on Saturday?
