2003 Season NFL Football Past Picks

New Orleans at Washington
Sunday 11/30 04:05 PM Eastern
4 units on New Orleans +1.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64) RESULT: WIN
The Saints are a much better team. They’ve won 4 out of their last 6 with the two losses coming against playoff teams who are playing very well (Carolina and Philadelphia). Their running game is clicking. RB Deuce McAllister has rushed for 100+ yards in eight straight games (184 yards last game). If it weren’t for three lost fumbles (including one in Philly’s end-zone), they probably would have beat the Eagles last week. New Orleans is 5-0 this year against teams with losing records. Can someone tell me why Washington’s favored in this game? The Redskins have lost six of their last seven games. Starting QB Patrick Ramsey is doubtful. Washington’s out of the playoff hunt while New Orleans absolutely needs this one to stay in it. The Skins’ have continuing dissention in the ranks (Bruce Smith is complaining about playing time). Don’t look a gift-horse in the mouth. Take the points and the Saints.
