2 units on New Orleans PICK () (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
The Houston Texans have looked good on their way to a 2-0 start in the preseason, winning both at home and on the road. The Saints have had an extra game because they played in this year's Hall of Fame Game. But they have lost two straight after winning that one. This is not surprising for New Orleans as they have had a 9-13 record in all NFL preseason games, not including the dress rehearsal Week 3 games. But game 3 is a different story as in those games, the Saints are 5-0 in the last five years, and one big reason has been Drew Brees. Brees has led the powerful New Orleans’ attack to a combined score of 164-55 in the five games, with the offense averaging 32.8 points per game and the winning margin has been 22.2 ppg. The Saints have been the most dominating dress rehearsal Week 3 team over the last half decade. Play on New Orleans here.
