Eagles-Saints Week 5 Betting Outlook

The Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints square off in Pennsylvania on Sunday with the intention of turning their seasons around before it’s too late.

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 5-2 in the past seven between the Saints and Eagles.
  • The Eagles are 8-15-1 ATS in their past 24 home games.
  • QB Sam Bradford threw three TDs and no INTs last week for the first time since Oct. 13, 2013.

In light of underwhelming 1-3 SU starts to the season, the Eagles and Saints have struggled for vastly different reasons. Philadelphia hasn’t been able to get anything going on offense, ranking 30th in the NFL in total yards and 22nd in points scored.

Under bettors aren’t complaining, however, as three out of Philly’s four games have gone Under the closing total.

New Orleans got their first win of the year over the Tony Romo-less Dallas Cowboys in Week 4 thanks to the return of the ever-steady Drew Brees, but things aren’t exactly swell in the Bayou State. The Saints offense – formerly one of the most potent in the NFL – has been sputtering, evidenced by little known wideout Willie Snead leading the team in receiving yards (240).
