NFL Odds: New Orleans -1.5 / Total: 49
The Denver Broncos (6-3 SU, 6-3 ATS) had their two-game winning streak emphatically snapped in their humbling 30-20 Week 9 loss against AFC West rival Oakland last weekend while allowing Raiders running back Latavius Murray to rush for 114 yards and three touchdowns.
“We gave up 200 rushing yards today” linebacker Brandon Marshall said. “That’s definitely not the mark of a great defense, we can’t just get run over.”
Quarterback Trevor Siemian was inconsistent throughout in completing 18 of 37 passes for 283 yards, but managed to toss two TD passes in the loss. Unfortunately, Siemian also threw one interception and lost one fumble in the defeat. The Broncos were limited to just 33 rushing yards in the loss.
New Orleans Saints
Drew Brees and the Saints (4-4 SU, 5-2-1 ATS) rolled all over the beleaguered San Francisco 49ers 41-23 this past weekend as Brees completed 28 of 39 passes for 323 yards and three touchdowns while veteran running back Mark Ingram bounced back from a benching one week earlier to rush for 158 yards and one touchdown.
Brees hooked up with rookie wide receiver Michael Thomas five times for 73 yards and two scores and limited Frisco to just 93 rushing yards while forcing four turnovers in the win.
Expert Prediction and Pick
The first thing you need to know about this Week 10 Inter-conference matchup is that the Saints’ four losses this season have come against teams with a combined 24-10 record to date. Still though, I’m going to urge you to back the Saints to get the super-narrow home win and accompanying ATS cover, mostly because of Denver’s lackluster offense which ranks 13th in scoring at 23.7 points per game.
I know New Orleans allows a whopping 29.7 points per game defensively to rank 30th in points allowed, but the Saints have not allowed more than 27 points in each of their last three games. More importantly, New Orleans has an explosive offense that puts up a stellar 30.2 points per game to rank second in scoring.
Denver will not allow Drew Brees to simply throw the ball all over the field, but I’m encouraged that the saints will rush the ball fairly effectively after seeing the Raiders pound the Broncos with their rushing attack and watching Mark Ingram play like the former Heisman Trophy winner he once was.
Denver is just 2-2 SU on the road this season and 3-4-2 ATS in their last nine road games. New Orleans is a perfect 5-0 ATS over their last five games and the Saints are my pick to take down a Denver Broncos team that isn’t quite as good defensively as they were a year ago.
