    Mike Zimmer is as ‘bet-on’ as it gets in the preseason: 17-4 SU in his 21 preseason games as the Vikings head coach.  Two of the four losses came in Week 4, a relatively ‘random’ week as far as preseason betting goes.  Zimmer is 5-0 SU, 5-0 ATS in Week 1 of the preseason.  And the reports out of Vikings camp are nearly uniformly positive right now.  Backup QB Sean Mannion and third stringer Kyle Sloter are both proven preseason performers drawing rave reviews in early August. 

    Sean Payton’s track record doesn’t quite match Zimmer’s!  Payton is 5-11 SU and ATS over the past four seasons in August, covering the spread only twice in seven tries as a favorite during that span.  While Taysom Hill and Teddy Bridgewater make a solid QB combo early but fourth stringer JT Barrett is not a QB who I trust late, especially given the Saints significant depth concerns.  New Orleans has all the makings of a false favorite on Friday Night.  Take the Vikings.
