MNF Preview: Lions at Saints Odds

The New Orleans Saints tend to fall apart when they’re expected to win as they are just 2-9-1 ATS in their past 12 games as the favorite. New Orleans will be the fave when they host the Detroit Lions Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The Lions are 1-4 SU and 0-5 ATS against the Saints in their past five games.
  • The Saints are 10-2 SU in their last 12 games on Monday night..
  • The UNDER is 13-3 in the Lions’ past 16 road games.
