Why Bet on the New Orleans Saints?
The Saints were two points away from their fourth win in five road games. They outgained the Titans in total yards, 373 to 264, and rushing yards, 86 to 66. Unfortunately, the Saints failed to close a two-point deficit in the fourth quarter and picked up their fourth loss this season.
Overall, the Saints still put up good numbers. The side averages 24.7 points (13th) per game. Although they record just 321.1 yards (26th) per game, the team makes up for the shortage elsewhere. Moreover, the team also records 118.9 rushing yards (12th) per game. These offensive numbers are enough to pick up three 30-plus point games in their five wins.
However, defense is what makes the Saints a tough team to crack. The squad holds opponents to just 19.8 points (seventh). They limit teams to 337.8 yards (tenth) per game. More than that, the team is exceptional when dealing with rushing plays. The Saints hold league-best records of 3.1 opponent yards per rush and 72.9 opponent rushing yards per game.
The Saints have to work through a series of injuries. Three starters, including running back Alvin Kamara (knee), left tackle Terron Armstead (knee/shoulder), and right tackle Ryan Ramczyk (knee) are all on the questionable list for this weekend’s matchup.
Why Bet on the Philadelphia Eagles?
The Eagles have to win this one to get a tighter grip on the second-best record in the NFC East. It will be a challenging afternoon for the side, but they can build from a strong Week 10 performance. The hosts are yet to secure a win in front of their home crowd after four games at the Lincoln Financial Field. This is a good opportunity for the side to get their first home win following a 30-13 victory over the Broncos.
The team averages 25.7 points (11th) and 205.8 passing yards (27th) per game. They cover plenty of ground while executing rushing plays. The Eagles have one of the best rushing yards records at 114.0 yards (third) per game.
Defensively, the team holds opponents to 23.1 points (14th) and 233.3 opponent passing yards (13th) per game. Although they have impressive rushing numbers, the Eagles have difficulty defending the rushing play. This is something we expect the Saints to utilize on Sunday. The Eagles allow 117.3 opponent rushing yards (20th)per game.
Three players are on the Eagles’ questionable list this weekend: tight end Dallas Goedert (concussion), left defensive tackle Javon Hargrave (shoulder), and weakside linebacker Davion Taylor (knee).
