New Orleans Saints at Philadelphia Eagles Final Betting Prediction
AJ Brown and Jalen Hurts list as questionable. If neither plays, or even if one doesn’t play, the Saints could do enough to cover the spread.
New Orleans shouldn’t win this game. But they will play Philly tight. Before laughing at the pick, realize that the Saints’ defense has turned into one of the better units in the NFL.
N’Awlins allows 192 passing yards per game, ranking second. Also, the Saints’ offensive line is healthy. In addition, we don’t know the effect losing to the Cowboys has had on Philly.
The Eagles really thought they had the division title in the bag. Philly has gone 0-2 ATS in their last two, bolstering the Saints will cover thesis.
