New Orleans can make it eight in a row vs Washington

The New Orleans Saints are chasing the Eagles for top spot in the NFC and will look for their eighth win in a row when they host Washington in Week 11. Since their tough loss in Week 2 at home to the Patriots, the Saints have been steamrolling opponents and have been one of the most dominant teams in the NFL. And that’s without quarterback Drew Brees carrying the offense. The Saints opened as 7.5-point favorites.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone OVER in 12 of the Saints’ last 17 games at home.
  • Mark Ingram is tied for first with 7 rushing TDs this season.
  • Washington is 11-4 ATS in its last 15 games on the road.

To continue about Brees, although he is averaging a career low in passing attempts per game, he’s still been lights out this season with a career-high 71.7 completion percentage. This Saints team is not what NFL fans are used to, using a ground game of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara to punish opposing defenses. But when you think of the Saints, defense isn’t usually the first thing that comes to mind (unless you think about how bad it was). Now, they’re fifth in points allowed (18.33) and are sixth in passing yards allowed and it can be mainly attributed to Marcus Lattimore, the front-runner for rookie defensive player of the year. The Saints are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games and there are no signs at this stage that New Orleans won’t eat the points at Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The Washington Professional Football Team was expected to make a playoff run after shocking the Seattle Seahawks in Week 9. But it seems like they can’t get out of their own way after a disappointing defeat to the Vikings. Now at 4-5 SU and 3-6 ATS overall, the Redskins are playing like an undisciplined football team, averaging over five penalties (for an average total of 41 yards) per game, which is second-worst in the NFL. The only saving grace for Washington backers is they’re 4-1 SU and 5-0 ATS in their last five games against the Saints. Kirk Cousins and company will need to sling it if they plan to make any noise against New Orleans, as starting running back Rob Kelley will be out with an ankle injury.

The total opened at 51 and bettors should consider the OVER. The total has gone OVER in seven of Washington’s last nine games on the road and in eight of the last nine times in this matchup. When you factor in that the Mercedes-Benz Superdome is notorious for shootouts, placing a wager on the OVER could be a steal.
