1 unit on Game Total UNDER 57 -110 (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: WIN
You need a strong pass rush if you want to hang with Drew Brees and the red-hot Saints. Philadelphia has it, at seventh in the NFL against the run, sixth in points allowed (20.3 points per game). The Eagles have 26 sacks and apply good pressure on the quarterback with veteran ends Michael Bennett (5.5 sacks), Brandon Graham (three sacks), Chris Long (3.5 sacks) and tackle Fletcher Cox (four sacks). Eagles' defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is extremely aggressive with his front seven against opposing passers. They opened the season against the high-flying Atlanta offense and held them to 12 points. Philadelphia is desperate for a win to stay in the playoff chase, and will certainly have an aggressive defensive approach. The Philly offense, however, has not been impressive, ranked #21 in points (22 pg). New Orleans has a dynamite offense, but the defense has also helped lead the surge during an eight-game win streak. They've allowed 18, 18, 19, 23, 20 and 14 points in six of their last eight contests. The Saints are 10-4 UNDER the total after getting 150+ yards rushing in their previous game and this total is too high. Take New Orleans and the UNDER.
