NFL FREE PICK: Take the over. According to latest NFL trends, the over is 9-2 in the Saints’ last 11 games versus a team with a winning record, 8-3 in their last 11 games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game, and 11-5 in their last 16 games following a straight up win. The over is also 4-1 in the Patriots’ last five games in October, 6-2 in their last eight games versus a team with a winning record and 41-20 in their last 61 games overall. The Saints’ offense is less explosive on the road than when inside the Superdome but the Patriots are banged up defensively and should surrender plenty of points. On the other side, Tom Brady won’t be held to less than 10 points again like he and New England were last week in Cincinnati.
