Philadelphia Eagles at New Orleans Saints NFL Week 11 Odds

Philadelphia Eagles vs. New Orleans Saints football betting oddsThe New Orleans Saints are 10-point home faves against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to online sports betting sites. It may be closer that the best online sportsbooks make it out to be, though. “This season, there have been 10 occasions when a team has gotten embarrassed on Sunday or Monday night (embarrassed defined as losing by at least two scores),” writes Steven Jung of NBC Sports.com. “Teams that got blown out on Sunday or Monday night are 8-2 against the spread their next game (including two outright wins by underdogs).” The only problem with that theory is that, as Jung himself notes, the Eagles lost by just one score. For you see, Philly was embarrassed not so much by the score, but by to whom they lost. When you lose to the 2018 Dallas Cowboys, you know you’re up the creek without a paddle.



Betting Philadelphia

Online sports betting sites had not pegged a Super Bowl champ as this big an underdog in a decade. The Pittsburgh Steelers were nine-point dogs versus the Baltimore Ravens in 2009. But that was because Big Ben had suffered a concussion the week prior. Thus, the Steelers had to resort to the now-forgotten Dennis Dixon. The Eagles had not been underdogs of seven points or more since 2015. Philly is 3-7 SU and 6-4 ATS in its past 10 games under those circumstances. The Eagles also are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games overall. And 1-4 ATS in their last five games against NFC teams.

Betting New Orleans


Drew Brees is the most precise QB in the league. He completes 77.3% of his passes, which means he has connected 251 of 353 attempts. As a result, the Saints rank No. 7 in the NFL in yards through the air, with 287.1 per game. However, New Orleans is just as deadly on the ground. The Saints average 126.8 rushing yards per game (8th). As a matter of fact, the Holy Ones lead the league in rushing touchdowns, at 17. Eleven of which belong to Alvin Kamara alone. The Saints may have receiving unit issues. In fact, the lost Dez Bryant before he even played a single snap. But New Orleans running attack is not be taken lightly.
According to online sports betting sites, the Saints are 7-0 ATS in their last seven games.

Our Pick: The Saints are the highest-scoring team in the NFL, averaging 36.7 points per game. Conversely, their defense is among the worse except when it comes to rushing yards allowed. However, they shouldn’t be too concerned with an Eagles offense that manages just 22 points per game. Philly’s defense ranks 6th in points allowed. The bad news is that the Eagles are without corners Sidney Jones, Jalen Mills, and Ronald Darby. As well as without free safety Rodney MacLeod (of the Clan MacLeod?). The only thing Breesus loves better than picking a defense apart, is one that’s already fallen apart. Doug Pederson may be better at golf than Sean Payton. But when it comes to a real sport, the Saints head coach has the upper hand.
