The Giants struggled in the end of the regular season as they lost 5 of the last 8 games and tied one vs Washington. However, they have been great ATS on the road covering in 7 of their 8 road games. The Vikings had a great season and the offense is on fire but they haven't been able to stop the other teams as they're allowin 25.4 points per game. The last time these teams met the Giants almost beat them in Minnesota but the Vikings cameback to win it. The Giants are well rested for this game as their best players didn't play in the last week of the regular season so I expect them to make this game very competitive again but it's hard to go agaist the Vikings at home so I'll go with the over.
