Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The 10-2 New Orleans Saints are one of those teams that has both an elite offense and a superb defense. The Saints have won nine straight games, despite playing chunks of games without two of their star players. WR Michael Thomas missed six starts, and QB Drew Brees has been sidelined with rib and lung injuries for the last three games. Still, the Saints keep on marching. Fill-in Saints’ QB Taysom Hill is athletic and intelligent, and should feast on the Eagles’ below average defense. Philadelphia’s bottom-tier offense will certainly struggle against New Orleans’ fourth-ranked defense as well. Don’t expect too much from the Eagles in this one, as they’ll likely be unable to take flight. Philadelphia is 4-8 ATS over its last 12 contests, and New Orleans is 4-1 ATS over its previous five. Once upon a time, this was a great matchup. Saints 34, Eagles 19
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
The New Orleans Saints keep winning despite not having veteran Drew Brees on the field, who by the way could be back next Sunday.
Taysom Hill has been playing well enough, also Alvin Kamara and the defensive unit. WR Michael Thomas is regaining confidence just in time for the final stretch of the regular season.
The Saints average 28.9 points per game (fourth best in the league) and the total has gone under in four of their last five games against an opponent from the NFC.
The Philadelphia Eagles have a new starting quarterback. That’s right, HC Doug Pederson confirmed that rookie Jalen Hurts will be under center against the Saints instead of Carson Wentz.
Philly has been terrible on both sides of the field, but mainly on offense. They average 21.1 points per game and the total has gone under in four of their last five games against New Orleans.
Go over only if Brees’ can play.
