Taysom Hill is getting better at this quarterbacking thing. Hill led the saints to a 21-16 road win over the Atlanta Falcons inWeek 13, as he passed for two touchdowns with zero interceptions to go with 232 passing yards on 27-of-37 completions against an improved Falcons defense. That was Hill’s best performance to date this season, plus the Saints are now 3-0 with him as their starting quarterback. The Saints are also drawing so much energy from their defense that’s one of the best in the league. With the Eagles having plenty of issues on their offense, the Saints can further add to Phill’s mess by unleashing the potential of their stop unit that’s fourth in the league with 20.1 points allowed per game and tops overall with just 288.1 total yards surrendered per contest.
The Saints are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 road games.
Betting on the Philadelphia Eagles (+7)
Regular Season Record: 3-8-1
So, who will start for the Eagles under center in Week 14? The answer is rookie Jalen Hurts, who’s finally been given the reins to run the team’s offense on the field by head coach Doug Pederson after a series of bad performances from Carson Wentz. In the Eagles’ last game, a 30-16 road loss to the Green Bay Packers, Hurts replaced Wentz and proceeded to pass for 109 yards and a touchdown with an interception on 5-of-12 completions., Hurts is not the ultimate answer to the Eagles’ woes, but he will give them a much-needed spark. A receiving corps composed of the likes of Dallas Goedert, Greg Ward, Jalen Reagor, Alshon Jeffery, and Zach Ertz look competent on paper, and they could all benefit from this change at the quarterback position by the Eagles. Although Hill has done well for the Saints, he’ll contend with the Eagles’ defense that is sixth in the league with just 5.2 yards allowed per play.
The Eagles are 3-1 against the spread in their last four home games.
The Saints win, 32-23.
