Cowboys vs. Saints Free Pick
Desperate for their first win of the season, the New Orleans Saints will host the Dallas Cowboys at 8:30PM ET tonight for Sunday Night Football.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Saints are 3.5-point home favorites versus the Cowboys while the over/under is currently sitting at 48 points. Dallas enters play with a 2-1 record and is 1-2 against the spread, while New Orleans is winless at 0-3 and is 1-2 against the number to start the year.
Drew Brees is expected to be back under center for the Saints after missing last weekend’s again in Carolina due to a shoulder injury. But just because Brees is back doesn’t mean he’ll be effective. He admitted to feeling the effects of his shoulder injury following the Saints’ loss to the Bucs in Week 2 and it’s highly unlikely that he’s completely healed from the injury. Expect New Orleans’ offense to struggle again tonight.
On the other side, Brandon Weeden and the Cowboys were rolling along against the Falcons last week until halftime. After holding a 28-17 lead heading into the break, Dallas was outscored 22-0 in the final two quarters as Atlanta did whatever it wanted to the Cowboys’ leaky defense. But the Boys should bounce back tonight against a Saints’ offense that has looked directionless without Jimmy Graham.
