Why Bet On New Orleans at +5?
The best reason to back the Saints is that they’re getting almost a full touchdown as road dogs. One week after beating Houston 30-28 in their thrilling season-opening win, New Orleans saw star quarterback Drew Brees injure his throwing hand and now they’ll be without their leader for a few weeks moving forward. The Saints fell to the L.A. Rams 27-9 in Week 2 as backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater completed just 17 of 30 passes for 165 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions and New Orleans was held to just 57 rushing yards in the loss.

Why Bet On Seattle at -5?
There are a handful of good reasons to back Seattle in this Week 3 matchup. First, the Seahawks are playing at home where they’re always super difficult to beat.Next, the Seahawks have an elite quarterback and enough talent to compete with anyone, including New Orleans. After squeaking past Cincinnati 21-20 in their opener, Seattle got past Pittsburgh 28-26 last weekend as Wilson passed for 300 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions and the Seahawks combined to rush for 151 yards.

Expert Analysis and Prediction for Saints vs Seahawks
New Orleans is a very good team with talent on both sides of the ball, but without Drew Brees, they’re a lot more pedestrian than they normally are. With that said, Seattle is playing at home and they’re finding ways to win despite clearly not playing their best football right now.
With the Home team in this series going a near-perfect 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings and the Saints going a dismal 0-5 ATS in their last five games against. a team with a winning record and 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games overall, I like Seattle to take care of business at home in this one to improve on their solid 7-2-1 ATS mark in their last 10 games against their NFC counterparts.
Pick: Seattle -5
