Full disclosure, I have a soft spot for the Saints and I try to limit betting on them just incase the feels get in the way of making sound financial decisions. However, I think this play should be a good one.
The Saints have stiffened up their defence in recent weeks conceding on average close to 100 yards less per game. Drew Brees and the offence had an underwhelming outing last week at Kansas City and I look for them to bounce back at home in the confines of their dome.
Seattle on the other hand played an absolute belter of a defensive matchup against the divisional rivals the Cardinals. The game went to overtime and ended in a draw. Seattle’s defence was on the field for such a long time last week I question whether they have the time to rest up in time for this one.
New Orleans can move the ball and put up points at home. Russell Wilson hasn’t thrown a TD in his last 2 games and the lack of quality on their offensive line is causing issues for Seattle’s running game.
Take the Saints at home with the points.
