Eagles vs Saints NFL Week 11 Betting Odds & Prediction

Written by on November 14, 2018

Over the course of the 17-week regular season in the NFL, we tend to see a whole lot of twists, turns, and momentum shifts. Teams that looked dead at the start of the season suddenly find their feet and become a challenger, while preseason favorites wither and die before our very eyes. The New Orleans Saints came out and lost their opening game of the season to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, leading some to believe that last season may have been a flash in the pan. They have since proven that what they did last year was perhaps just a stepping stone towards greater things.

As for the defending Super Bowl Champions, their season has yet to really get going. Just when it looks as though they are about to turn a corner, they have themselves another setback. It’s more than fair to suggest that the Philadelphia Eagles need this one if they are to stay alive in the playoff picture, but it’s also fair to say that they are going to have a very tough time getting that win. The Saints are in as a 9-point home favorite, with the point total set at 55.

Why bet on the Philadelphia Eagles?

The Eagles made a habit of winning big games last season, a habit that took them all the way to a championship. They have not been able to find a way to win those big games this year, with their loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10 a perfect example of that. The NFC East is still very much up for grabs at this point, and a win in that game would have put the Eagles in prime position to run down the Redskins. Instead, they are now sitting a game below .500 and in very real danger of not getting to the postseason to defend their crown.

The Eagles have been a poor bet all around this season, managing to cover the spread just 3 times in their 9 games. They have only won 2 of their last 7 meetings with New Orleans, although they are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 visits to the Big Easy.

Why bet on the New Orleans Saints?

The Saints have put that opening week loss behind them rather quickly and are coming into this one on an 8-game winning streak. It doesn’t seem to matter what the bookies do to the Saints in terms of the spread, as they just go out and cover, which they have done in 7 straight games now.

Eagles vs Saints is going to be a good one.

While it has certainly been the Drew Brees show for New Orleans again this season, the veteran QB has not been asked to carry the entire load. The Saints are able to hit teams with a very nice mix of the run and pass, which has helped them rack up over 36 PPG this season. They are now on a run where they have won 11 of their last 12 games at home.
