Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Saints are 8-point favorites to beat the Eagles. The total, meanwhile, sits at 56 points. As of this writing, 58% of the public betting tickets are on the Saints to cover the point spread.

Philadelphia Eagles

Coach Doug Pederson said Golden Tate is "much further along this week" and will have a bigger role Week 11 against the Saints. Tate was in on just 29% of the snaps in his Eagles debut last Sunday night against Dallas, catching 2-of-4 targets for 19 yards. Highly disappointing for sure, but Tate will be tough to sit in New Orleans on the fast Superdome track in what is expected to be a big-time shootout. Tate is a WR3.

New Orleans Saints

Saints LT Terron Armstead (shoulder) is expected to miss 3-4 weeks. Armstead injured his shoulder/pec in Sunday's blowout of the Bengals. It's a huge hit to the Saints offensive line, leaving Jermon Bushrod to protect Drew Brees' blindside. Armstead won't return until Week 13 at the earliest.

NFL Betting Trends

Philadelphia

The over is 5-0 in the Eagles’ last five games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game.

New Orleans

The over is 4-1 in the Saints’ last five games coming off a win of more than 14 points.

Prediction

Not many teams have slowed the Saints down this season, especially at home. That Philadelphia team that went to the Super Bowl last season may have stood a shot but this current Eagles pass defense has not shot. They were already banged-up before losing cornerback Ronald Darby for the season last week, now they’re vulnerable in their secondary. The over is 6-2 in the last eight meetings between these two teams and should be 7-2 after Sunday.
