Shane’s Free Pick

These are both good offensive teams, but the defense for New Orleans has been a major issue this year. New Orleans is giving up 79.8 points per game and it’s going to be a major issue here. Look for both teams to run up the score, with very little defense to be played by either team. Back the over to cash here.
