Written by on October 9, 2019

The New Orleans Saints will look to extend their winning ways when they hot the road to take on a Jacksonville Jaguars team that has clearly been rejuvenated by the play of their underrated rookie quarterback ever since veteran starter Nick Foles was lost for the remainder of the 2019 campaign. Now, with the Jags looking for the upset, let’s find out which team is offering the best value against their NFL odds in this contest.

Why Bet On New Orleans?

There are a handful of great reasons to back the Saints in this one, starting with the fact that they’ve won three straight with veteran Teddy Bridgewater under center for the injured Drew Brees. New Orleans comes into this contest off a 31-24 home win over Tampa Bay last weekend and they are statistically better on both sides of the ball, not to mention the fact that the Saints simply have more overall talent on their roster.

Why Bet On Jacksonville?

Despite their 34-27 loss to the Carolina Panthers last weekend, there are some solid reasons to back the Jags in this one. First, Jacksonville has been re-energized by the play of rookie signal-caller Gardner Minshew. The former Washington State star has led Jacksonville to a solid 2-2 mark while completing an impressive 66.7 percent of his passes with nine touchdowns and just one interception. Then, there’s the fact that the Jags will be motivated after seeing their modest two-game winning streak halted the last time out. Last but not least, Jacksonville is playing at home and on grass and the Saints have gone 2-5 ATS in their last seven games on grass.

Saints vs Jaguars Expert Analysis and Prediction

Jacksonville might be playing at home and they might be playing some surprisingly solid football with Minshew under center, but the fact of the matter is that New Orleans is a legitimate Super Bowl contender while the Jags are just hoping to play respectable football for the remainder of this season.

The Saints are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings against Jacksonville while the favorite in this rivalry has gone a near-perfect 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings. New Orleans is also a bankroll-boosting 21-8 ATS in its last 29 road games while Jacksonville has gone 0-5 ATS in its last 5 played in October. I expect Jacksonville to put up a real fight in this Week 6 matchup, but in the end, I just can’t go against New Orleans to get upset here!
