Betting on the Philadelphia Eagles (4-5)
The reigning Super Bowl champions just got stunned by their arch nemesis, as they got beat by the Dallas Cowboys at home in Week 100, 27-20. The Cowboys were the ones saddled with issues heading into that matchup. They were the ones with the supposedly lesser starting quarterback in Dak Prescott, which means they presumably had the weaker offense. But they still overpowered the Eagles, who got 360 passing yards, two passing touchdowns with an interception from quarterback Carson Wentz. Where the Eagles fell short was in the backfield and on their run defense. Philly only had 71 rushing yards on 16 carries, while it allowed Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott go off for 151 rushing yards and a touchdown on 10 carries. Despite that embarrassing loss, it’s important to remember that the Eagles are still the defending champions, s0 that hurt pride should be enough to motivate them against the Saints. Their defense can still deliver, as they haven’t surrendered more than 21 points in each of their past four games.
The over is 5-0 in their last five road games.
Betting on the New Orleans Saints (8-1)
The Saints are just showing off right now. For the second game in a row, Drew Brees and company have scored 45 points or more after they defeated the Cincinnati Bengals on the road in Week 10 to the tune of a 51-14 score. That huge differential between the two teams’ point totals clearly shows how extremely dominant they were on both ends of the field. Brees finished the game with 265 passing yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions, while the Saints’ backfield nearly doubled its per game rushing yards average by going off for 244 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 47 carries. Even for an Eagles defense which has plenty of elite talents, stopping a New Orleans offense that is creative, talented, and confident can be too much for Philadelphia to handle. The Saints also showed some defensive chops in the Bengals game by recording four sacks and two interceptions.
The Saints, who have allowed 23.0 points over their last three games, are 2-0 ATS in their last two home games. The over is also 4-1 in their last five games at Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
New Orleans wins, 28-24.
