Minnesota at New Orleans

Friday 08/09 08:00 PM Eastern

1 unit on New Orleans -2.5 (-115) (risk 1 to return 1.87)  RESULT: loss

1.5 units on Game Total UNDER 37.5 -105 (risk 1.5 to return 2.93)  RESULT: loss

New Orleans is as determined as ever to erase another heartbreak season that ended with one of the worst non-calls of all time. The Saints still have the NFL's all-time leading passer in Drew Brees and Alvin Kamara will start at running back after finishing with 883 yards rushing on 4.6 yards per carry and also 709 receiving yards. The Saints have one of the best at defensive end in Cameron Jordan, a strong core at the linebacker position and they should have an improving secondary. Teddy Bridgewater is a capable backup to Brees and the former Vikings QB has started 29 games in his career. Taysom Hill is a do-it-all weapon, who can play quarterback, tight end and on special teams. Minnesota is hoping Kirk Cousins can rebound from a disappointing debut with the Vikings in 2018, but it won't happen without a much-improved offensive line. Also, the running game is unsettled as Dalvin Cook continues to be injury-prone.  If Cousins can't live up to his $84 million deal, there is no relief in the backup role as Sean Mannion, Kyle Sloter and Jake Browning have one start among them in regular season action. Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer is 12-8-1 UNDER in preseason and Sean Payton is 23-19-4 UNDER overall and 6-2 UNDER the last two preseasons. New Orleans is 5-3 ATS the last two preseasons, including 3-1 ATS last year. Take the Saints and the UNDER.
