Post expert’s Giants-Vikings predictions: Not quite a consensus

Here are The Post’s experts predictions on Sunday’s Giants-Vikings NFC wild-card showdown in Minneapolis:

Ryan Dunleavy: Giants 26, Vikings 23

Revenge is a dish best served cold — and it will be about 35 degrees outside the comforts of domed U.S. Bank Stadium. After Greg Joseph’s 61-yard field goal decided the game on Christmas Eve, Graham Gano (8-for-9 on 50-plus-yard field goals this season) gets his turn for a winner as time expires.

Ian O’Connor: Giants 27, Vikings 23

The Giants effectively played to a draw a few weeks ago in Minny, so the Vikings represent the ideal first-round opponent. The inexperienced underdogs might have a little postseason stage fright early, but my guess is the Giants will gather themselves in time to score the upset.

Paul Schwartz: Giants 24, Vikings 20

Is there any doubt the Giants are an ascending team? Kirk Cousins has not played badly in his previous playoff games, but he is 1-3. Daniel Jones makes his playoff debut on an upswing. The Giants can follow his lead.

Steve Serby: Giants 27, Vikings 24

Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley, the twin faces of the franchise, are peaking at the right time for their long-awaited first playoff game, and a healthy, ravenous defensive front four and coordinator Wink Martindale won’t allow Kirk Cousins to play catch this time with Justin Jefferson.

Mike Vaccaro: Vikings 28, Giants 24

What we’ve seen out of the Giants all year is not an illusion, but the Vikings aren’t one, either: They know how to win close games, and they’re home. Back at MetLife, the numbers would be reversed.
