3 units on Game Total UNDER PICK (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The New Orleans Saints fresh off their Hall of Fame game win vs Arizona, take to the road to square off with New England. If this were a regular season game the over would be getting a lot of interest, and just the fact that these are 2 offensive minded teams, has the total set 3 points higher than any other game on the week 1 schedule. The point is, neither team here needs to work on the offense, and Drew Brees threw all of 5 passes in the opener. While the Pats piled it on Jacksonville last year in their first game, Tom Brady didn't ven play in that one. The teams will have oint practices on Tuesday and Wednesday before the Thursday kickoff, so both coaches get a chance to evaluate players from the otherside. This certainly has the potential of identifying what they may try to do against each other. The total here is high considering the fact that the main offensive cogs will make cameos, and the teams are practicing together. Play on the UNDER.
