KEY STATS: Both teams are a dispiriting 2-4. The Saints have played QB shuffle, with Andy Dalton likely to get the nod over Jameis Winston in a run-first offense. (Top WRs Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry are out.) The Cardinals have trailed at halftime in all six games, getting outscored 89-29.
TRENDING: The home team is 7-1 ATS in their last eight meetings. The Under has hit in five straight Cardinals games.
INSIGHT: More tickets (61%) are on the favorite, but the cheddar is even.
The boys went 3-0 on their college picks last week. Let's see what NBC lead betting analyst Jay Croucher and the PointsBet duo of Ryan Leaf and Teddy Greenstein have on tap.
Juwan Johnson Over 30.5 Receiving Yards (-105)
“The Cardinals allow the most yards in the league to opposing TEs. And as road dogs, the Saints likely will need to throw.”
LSU -2.5 over Ole Miss (-107)
“The LSU offense is crackling under QB Jayden Daniels. And when in doubt, take the unranked fav over the ranked visitor.”
Saints-Cardinals Under 43.5 (-107)
“Back to the well! The Under is 17-5 in the last 22 TNF games, and Cards coach Kliff Kingsbury stinks at play-calling.”
Tulane 1H (-3.5) over Memphis (-110)
“Memphis will come out flat after back-to-back gutting losses – the last in 4 overtimes. Tulane (6-1) is legit.”
THE BIG NAME
Cardinals -2.5 over Saints (-115)
"DeAndre Hopkins' return gives Kyler Murray something he has missed dearly. Also, the Cardinals HAVE to win or things in Phoenix will get toasty -- and I don't mean the weather."
Oklahoma State +6.5 over Texas (-107)
"I still believe the Cowboys are the best team in the Big 12."
