New Orleans at Baltimore

Sunday 12/08 04:05 PM Eastern

4 units on Baltimore +2.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)  RESULT: LOSS

The warm-blooded Saints have to travel to what should be a cold-weather game. Three key New Orleans players are hurting: QB Aaron Brooks, RB Deuce McAllister and CB Dale Carter. If any of them can’t go this pick gets even better (the Saints lost as six point favorites to Cleveland two weeks ago with the Deuce) but I expect all three to play.

New Orleans is coming off a draining big game against Tampa Bay. This is a must-win for Baltimore but not for New Orleans.

Baltimore’s Jamal Lewis is back to SuperBowl form, already over 1000 yards rushing and putting up an average of 100 yards per game over the last four while averaging over 5 yards per carry.

Take the home team in desperate need of a win against a hurting team that doesn’t care as much.
